With medical advances happening every day, hair transplantation is becoming more and more common. In fact, it is now the most common cosmetic procedure in men. Here are the top 3 reasons men turn to hair transplantation procedures:
Hair transplantation has come a long way. The old-fashioned hair plugs – a product of the strip surgery – are now outdated. The most advanced procedure to date is follicular unit extraction (FUE), in which hair follicles are extracted from the donor area and transferred to the recipient area. Unlike older surgeries, this procedure is not invasive and leaves no visible scars. It gets better: the FUE procedure is now performed by the ARTAS robotic arm, with more accuracy and precision than any surgeon ever could. Unlike the older techniques, it’s a same-day procedure and the recovery time is minimal.
The results of an FUE procedure – whether done by the hand of a surgeon or by the ARTAS robotic arm – are permanent. Transplanted hair usually grows naturally after 3-4 months, and in 18 months it will have achieved its full thickness. As there are no visible scars, people are not limited to hairstyles, unlike with the older procedures.
When a surgeon performs FUE, there’s a transection rate of up to 20%. That means that follicles are permanently damaged. However, when the procedure is performed by the ARTAS machine, the transection rate is less than 5%. That means, 95% of the follicles are transplanted successfully. What’s more, the machine is much more accurate than a surgeon’s eye at calculating the direction of growth, resulting in more natural looking hair.
A full head of hair often translates into confidence. Confidence, in turn, affects how we see ourselves and thus how other see us – when it comes to job opportunities, love life and much more. For many younger men, it is even more devastating, as going bald at an early age can be quite a blow to their self-worth. With an FUE or ARTAS procedure, you can begin to feel attractive, confident and sexy in a few short months. Are you ready to meet the new you?
