Hair Transplants with ARTAS®
As a board-certified surgeon, my goal is always to create the best results for my patients. I chose the ARTAS® System because its advanced robotic technology allows me to perform minimally invasive hair transplants with follicle-by-follicle precision.
Through the ARTAS® hair transplant procedure, you will have fuller, healthier-looking, natural hair for good. If you are curious about what the ARTAS® System has to offer, let’s address the most common questions we receive from patients.
The RHRLI Edge: Benefits of ARTAS® Hair Transplants
Let’s start with the benefits of the ARTAS® System and what sets us apart here at RHRLI.
- We use the most advanced hair transplantation technology
So, what makes the ARTAS® System so advanced? Simple. The ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant System provides digital technology that allows us to more accurately and consistently harvest and transplant your hair. Selecting and transplanting donor hair follicle by follicle ensures a natural hairline and faster healing. The high-resolution digital imaging provides real-time analysis to more accurately map out and analyze the natural hair groupings.
- Our procedures do not require incisions and do not leave linear scars
Does the hair transplant procedure hurt? The ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant is an outpatient procedure that requires only a local anesthetic. During the procedure, you will feel virtually no pain. After the procedure, over-the-counter medication is more than sufficient if any discomfort occurs. Because the ARTAS® Robot implants individual hairs, scarring is minimal whereas traditional hair surgery involves a linear scar.
- Our procedures result in fast recovery time
How quick is the hair transplant surgery recovery time? No time at all. You’ll recover extremely fast because the ARTAS® procedure is minimally invasive. Patients can usually resume their normal activities in 1 to 2 days.
Frequently Asked Questions
- How Long Does the Hair Transplant Take?
Depending on how much hair you are having transplanted, the procedure typically takes 4 to 8 hours.
- When Can I Expect the New Hair to Start Growing In?
New hair will begin to appear at three months. At about six months, you will see significant improvement in your hair growth, and after a year, the final results should be evident.
- Will people notice that I’ve had a hair restoration procedure?
Since the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant System does not create a linear scar, and the new hair grows in gradually, it’s much less likely that people will realize you had a hair restoration procedure than with other previous methods like Follicle Unit Transplantation (FUT). If anything, people will notice that your appearance is more youthful.

So, if you’ve been thinking about rejuvenating your thinning hairline but have hesitated to call us to arrange for a free consultation and hair evaluation, take a look at these common questions our happy patients asked while deciding to have the ARTAS® procedure.
Are Hair Restoration Results from ARTAS® Permanent?
Yes! The ARTAS® hair restoration process uses permanent hair from the back and sides of your head, known as donor hair areas, and transplants it to the thinning areas, restoring your hairline. The back and sides of the head are known as “donor hair” sites because those areas are not usually affected by male pattern hair loss, so transplanted hair stays permanently afterwards.
Does the Hair Restoration Process Hurt?
The ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration process is performed under a local anesthetic as an outpatient procedure. Patients feel virtually no pain during the procedure. Afterward, some feel a mild discomfort that is easily addressed by over-the-counter pain reliever. If post-procedure discomfort occurs, it’s usually gone within 1-3 days.
But don’t take our word for it. Listen to what a patient from Stony Brook had to say:
“I would highly recommend anyone thinking of using RHRLI. It was virtually painless, and I couldn’t believe how quickly I was back to my daily routine. Everyone at RHRLI was exceptional. They really care about every part of the process and wanted the best results for me.”
How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Hair Transplant?
Because the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration process doesn’t involve stitches and is minimally invasive, recovery time is very quick. Patients typically go back to their normal activities in just one or two days
How Long Does the Hair Restoration Process Take?
Depending upon how much hair will need to be transplanted, it can take between four and eight hours. Regardless of the length of time for the procedure, our team ensures you are as comfortable as possible the entire time.
As one Long Island patient said,
“The day of the procedure I was welcomed by the incredible staff at RHRLI. We went over the day’s itinerary, and everyone was very accommodating. They attended to any and every question I had, and I had a lot of them. The procedure was smooth, straight-forward, and painless, thanks to the staff and the amazing ARTAS® Robot. Believe it or not, I almost fell asleep! It finished earlier than expected, and I was able to go home right away, without feeling a thing. I was extremely happy with my experience.”

As we get older, it’s not uncommon to take a look at ourselves and wonder “why is my hairline so high?” or “is my forehead too big?” For some people, this is a product of a maturing hairline, where your hair recedes slightly in or around middle age and may result in a slightly higher hairline than you’re used to. It can also make your forehead appear larger. Other people are experiencing this as the early signs of more dramatic hair loss. [Read more…] about Hairline Lowering
Hair loss can have many causes. Sometimes it’s genetic, from a disease, environmental, due to a hair style, a nutritional imbalance or deficiency, or medication side effect, but one of the most tragic reasons is when it’s a result of hair pulling because the people frequently blame themselves. Hair-pulling disorder, also known as trichotillomania, is more complex than that. [Read more…] about Hair Pulling and Hair Loss
