Robotic Hair Transplant Revolutionizes Beard Transplants

As a leading national hair transplant clinic, PAI Medical Group Nashville continues to set the standard for hair restoration solutions.

They were the first hair surgery center in Tennessee to incorporate ARTAS Robotic technology in their practice during the first quarter of 2014. Now they have expanded that medical technology to include a solution for the beard transplant.

“PAI has offered beard transplants for years,” states Michael Ramsey, Clinic Director at PAI Nashville. “However in order to keep up with the latest hair trends, it has become important to provide a scarless solution for patients who wish to not only have a thicker, fuller beard but also sport a very short hair style such as the popular faux hawk worn by well known celebrities such as Sam Hunt or David Beckham.”

For patients with thinning patchy beards, the ARTAS is an extraordinary solution for their hair loss problems. In recent years, robotic technology has been used in many complex medical procedures such as heart transplants. Now it can be used to harvest healthy hairs with precision while virtually eliminating fatigue and human error for doctors and staff.

Dr. Chris Pawlinga, the surgeon to perform PAI Nashville’s first beard transplant using the ARTAS explained, “The typical beard restoration might require up to 1500 grafts in a single transplant depending on the hair loss in the patient’s beard.

The transplanted hair is not only the patient’s very own hair, but it is also genetically pre-programmed to last a lifetime.”

Because this is a minimally invasive technique, there are no stitches or unsightly linear scars peeking out from beneath the hair in the donor area, and the recovery time is quick.

Once the patient has received a robotic beard transplant, the whole procedure is completely undetectable after just 2 short weeks. Permanent results can be seen as early as 4 months depending on the patient.

When asked why PAI Medical Group added robotic beard transplants to their long list of services, Michael Ramsey explained, “PAI listens to their patients.

It is PAI’s goal to provide the best solutions available in today’s market in order to meet the wide variety of preferences and needs.” Some of PAI’s hair loss solutions include, laser therapy, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), Micro-Pigmentation, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP), Eyebrow transplants, and Multi-Unit hair transplants for those who desire a maximum harvest of hairs with an undetectable linear scar.

Because this technique is relatively new to the hair transplant industry, it might not be available everywhere.

That is why PAI offers an attractive travel incentive package so that everyone has access to this solution.

PAI Medical Group Nashville is a national hair restoration clinic. PAI enjoys an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and has provided hair loss solutions for men and women for over 20 years.

Hair transplant surgeons then have to look for another supply of donor hair. One of the newest hair transplant methods is Beard to Scalp Hair Transplant (BSHT).

According to Dr. Parsa Mohebi, the first choice for donor hair in a patient is almost always scalp hair.
