Here is a patient who went to a hair transplant surgeon in Florida and had an ARTAS Robotic FUE procedure. The photo below shows how his donor looked after only about 1300 grafts were extracted by the robot. The donor area was very scarred as you can see from the photos. I harvested just over 1300 grafts with a handheld FUE tool in the areas that were left untouched from the previous procedure and the results are shown here.
Bottom line is choose your physician wisely and choose a physician who personally extracts the follicles by hand and focuses exclusively on hair transplants in order maximize chances for a successful outcome and natural result.
All the best,
