Cosmetic surgery of any kind is in no way an exact science. Besides certain physiological variables that exist from one patient to the next, there are tremendous skill set differences and basic human variables that enter into the equation as well. Currently hair transplantation is a team effort and the result of the surgery is only as good as the weakest member of the team.
However, if there was a way to virtually eliminate the human factor, it only makes sense that the overall quality and consistency of hair transplant surgery will improve tremendously.
Dr. Gabe Zingaretti, Chief Operations Officer (COO) of Restoration Robotics and lead developer of the ARTAS discusses the continued evolution of the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system and how in the very near future, the robot will remove one more human variable from the equation that in many cases makes or breaks the final outcome of the surgery…The implantation of follicular units.
