Hair transplant surgery has been around for decades, but in recent years, the technology has become so advanced, and surgeon skill so precise, that hair loss can almost be completely restored in some areas. The process of hair transplants does not create new hair. Instead, healthy hair follicles are removed and extracted from the back of the head where hair growth is considered permanent, and the grafts are then transplanted to a more visible area on the front of the head. Dr. Clinton Webster offers FUE (Follicuar Unit Extraction) using the highly technical ARTAS hair transplant system to complete this process. Our patients are extremely pleased with their outcomes and consider their results to be full and natural.

Hair loss, while common, can be distressing. When nonsurgical treatment such as oral and topical medications are not enough to slow, stop, or restore hair loss, there are other effective solutions worth considering. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive hair restoration transplant surgery that uses robotic technology to track and extract hair follicles with precise accuracy and control. The process involves using a small (0.8mm - 1.0mm), rounded instrument or “punch” to remove the hair grafts. The FUE procedure is often preferred over the strip method (FUT) because it does not involve the use of a scalpel or stitches, nor does it leave any noticeable scarring. Dr. Webster offers the state-of-the-art ARTAS robotic hair transplant system for FUE, a technology that creates outstanding outcomes that last a lifetime.
Dr. Webster performs FUE on-site at his accredited surgical facility. It is here where he maintains the ARTAS equipment. The entire procedure can take up to 6-8 hours to complete and the patient is usually awake the entire time. The first part of the surgery involves the extraction of the hair follicles from the back of the head, and the second part involves the actual transplant. Recovery is dependent upon each individual and the extent of their surgery--meaning how many grafts were used to accomplish the desired result. Exercise and strenuous activity should be avoided for 1-2 weeks. Within the first few weeks after this procedure, the newly transplanted hair grafts will fall out. This is common and is to be expected. The hair follicles that were transplanted are permanent in the scalp and over time, new, healthy hair will begin to grow. It typically takes about a full year for the final results to be shown.

Hair Transplant FAQs
Are There Other Treatments?
Hair transplant surgery offers individuals the chance to regain hair in balding areas. For individuals who wish to try other avenues before considering surgery, there are topical solutions, oral medications and hair systems/camouflage pieces that may work.
Negative Side Effects?
There may be some skin irritation, slight itching and some skin discoloration after treatment, but this is usually only evident at the injection site and typically subsides in a few days. This procedure is non-invasive, and complications are usually rare.
Who is the Ideal Candidate?
The ideal candidate has a healthy amount of hair growth on the sides and back of the head. The more hair the patient has in the donor sites, the better the overall results. It is important to discuss your expectations with your surgeon. In addition, various factors may alter the cosmetic result, including hair color or texture.
