In recent years, follicular unit excision (FUE) has gained greater popularity with patients looking for an even more minimally invasive approach to surgical hair restoration than the standard-excision procedures, such as follicular unit transplantation (FUT).
FUT, better known as the traditional strip method, involves the removal of a band of donor hair from the back of the head. Despite the extreme care and skill exercised by all Ziering surgeons, the width of the linear scar varies from patient to patient, sometimes making it difficult to wear their hair very short in the back.
The Robotic FUE hair transplant procedure removes the chance of this linear scarring by harvesting each follicle individually from the patients head, always taking the minimum amount of tissue required for each graft. The random selection of follicles also ensures that the donor area remains as natural looking as before the procedure. By assisting with the excision step of the procedure, under guidance, the Robograft technique allows the surgeon to better invest his time and energy in the artistic creation of recipient sites. All of this translates to a fuller, healthier head of hair that can be worn confidently at any length.
