Over 1.2 billion men suffer from hereditary baldness worldwide. By age 35, 67% of men suffer from hair loss or male pattern baldness; by age 50, that number escalates to 85%. If you experience hair loss, it may affect the way you feel about yourself, and the confidence you project in social and professional interactions.
Fortunately, North Texas Plastic Surgery offers the most advanced hair restoration technology available today: the ARTAS iX robotic hair restoration system. This FDA-cleared technology delivers permanent and natural-looking hair restoration with minimal downtime.

What Is the ARTAS iX Robotic Hair Transplant System?
The ARTAS Robotic System is the first and only robotic hair transplant system in the world. It uses state-of-the-art robotic technology to perform Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), a hair restoration technique that harvests hair follicles individually, rather a full strip of the scalp. Manual FUE is a difficult, painstaking task that is prone to human error as physicians must remove thousands of grafts by hand during the procedure.
Robotic FUE is a highly effective alternative to the traditional method, offering an unparalleled level of precision, speed, and quality. It is a clinically-proven hair transplant solution that delivers permanent, natural results without staples, stitches, linear scarring, or damage to your existing hair.
Since this minimally-invasive hair transplant procedure does not leave a linear scar, you have the freedom to cut and style your hair the way you want without having to hide a scar.
Benefits of ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration
Compared to other hair loss treatments, the ARTAS Robotic System is the most advanced, precise option available. Benefits of the ARTAS system include:
- Lifetime results: Transplanted hair is natural and permanent.
- Advanced precision: The ARTAS robotic procedure delivers consistently accurate, highly-reproducible results.
- Robotic harvesting: ARTAS technology is extremely fast and effective, harvesting more than 2,000 grafts per hour.
- Virtually pain-free: The ARTAS system is less painful than traditional FUE procedures, without the side effects and lengthy recovery times of older techniques.
- No linear scar or stitching: With no linear scars or stitching, you won’t have to worry about hiding a scar. This allows you to style your hair any way you’d like.
- 3D hairline planning: Before your treatment, you will be able to preview the effects of varying graft counts, hairlines, and hair distribution to ensure you get the final look you desire.
- Fast recovery: Following your robotic hair transplant, you will be able to resume your regular activities within just a few days.
Is a Robotic Hair Transplant Right For Me?
The ARTAS hair transplant is an ideal solution for men and women of all ages and backgrounds in Southlake who would like to improve the density and appearance of their hair. This procedure may be right for you if you experience:
- Thinning hair: ARTAS can help you regrow your natural hair density and enjoy thicker, fuller hair.
- Receding hairline: Robotic FUE can redesign your original healthy hairline if you experience receding on or around the forehead.
- Hair loss: The ARTAS system can help correct hair loss on the crown, middle, and front of the scalp.
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for robotic hair restoration is to meet personally with one of our experienced plastic surgeons at North Texas Plastic Surgery.
During your free initial consultation, our surgeon will take the time to get to know you and your unique aesthetic goals. A thorough examination will be conducted to ensure your candidacy for hair loss treatment. This will also be your opportunity to ask questions and gain an understanding of what you can expect from your procedure.
How Much Does Robotic Hair Transplant Cost?
The cost of hair restoration in Dallas varies from patient to patient. There are several factors that are considered when determining the cost of a hair transplant, including:
- The amount of hair loss
- The number of hair grafts needed
- The size of the hair donor area
- Your desire for density
- Personal hair characteristics that influence the appearance of density
You will be provided with a cost estimate at your initial consultation. Our helpful staff will be happy to discuss all of your payment and financing options.
When to Consider ARTAS iX Robotic Hair Restoration
One of the essential components of a successful hair restoration procedure in Plano is an established pattern of hair loss that the technology can identify. Therefore, ARTAS iX robotic hair restoration patients in Plano typically need to wait to undergo treatment if their hair loss symptoms continue to change. Once a recognizable hair loss pattern is apparent, the procedure can accurately identify the best hair follicles for transplanting into areas with the most hair loss. This can include the hairline, which tends to recede as men get older. The procedure could effectively lower the hairline, thereby reversing the trend.
These treatments require patients to have a sufficient amount of healthy hair for the transplant, typically from the side and the back of the head. In addition, donor areas of hair for treatment must have enough healthy hair growth to balance the effects of hair follicle harvesting and prevent additional hair thinning. Seeking treatment as soon as possible once you recognize a pattern of hair loss is the best option for more successful ARTAS iX results.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for ARTAS iX Robotic Hair Restoration?
Like laser hair removal treatments, ARTAS iX robotic hair restoration operations use technology that recognizes the hair by its pigmentation for collection and transplantation. Thus, the treatment is more effective for individuals with naturally darker hair, but individuals with light hair may still undergo treatment and have sufficient new hair growth. However, to ensure that ARTAS iX technology can identify hair follicles properly, naturally light hair will be dyed darker before the procedure.
In addition to adjusting for hair pigmentation, the advanced technology of this hair restoration procedure could adapt the approach for an individual’s hair texture. The technology uses a wider harvesting needle to collect the hair follicles without damaging hair grafts to accommodate curlier hair patterns. Thus, patients with wavy or curly hair suffering from hair loss could have sufficient and better-looking hair restoration with the improved precision of robotic hair restoration. It is also possible to get a beard transplant, filling in patchy growth on your chin or providing more texture to the beard you are already growing.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Though ARTAS iX robotic hair restoration surgery provides permanent results for patients in Southlake and elsewhere in North Texas, it typically takes one year before the full effects become apparent. Most patients begin to see new, healthy hair growth in transplant areas about three to four months after the procedure when transplanted hair sheds and regrows. After this period, a patient’s results continue to improve with new hair growth, particularly after five to eight months, with final results becoming apparent after 12 months.
New hair growth in the year is permanent, so patients do not need to worry about genetic hair loss from reversing the results. The new hair growth in previously balding areas remains unaffected since the transplanted hair came from areas where genetic hair loss does not affect. Further, due to the higher precision of the operation compared to manual FUE, patients have thicker, more natural-looking results than with other hair transplantation methods.
