Hair transplantation is the placement of hair from an area of scalp not susceptable to hairloss to an area devoid of hair. In most men and women, the hair on the back and sides of their head is resistant to hairloss. This "permanent" hair is harvested by painlessly using the Artas and NeoGraft systems in tandem, removing individual groups of hairs that grow in one, two, three or four hairs.
These newly Milleniumgrafts of "permanent" hairs are distributed artistically and naturally over the balding scalp according to a carefully planned pattern. These newly transferred hairs quickly take root and, after a short resting period of three months, grow – and keep on growing for the rest of your life.
By middle age, approximately onehalf of all men have developed some degree of Male Pattern Alopecia (hairloss). It is determined by heredity, which means that each man’s genes determine before his birth which hairs are to live for a lifetime and which are to prematurely die and fall out.
To create great hair transplant results, the surgeon must have an artistic eye.
After the hairs regrow, it can be washed, cut, or styled to your taste. It can be permed or colored. A person with a transplanted head of hair can sleep, swim, ski – in other words – do everything they every did before, knowing that once again they have their own hair back again and no one will know it.

What causes hair loss?
Heredity is the leading cause of male pattern hair loss in men. In female pattern alopecia, genetics and hormones can be common causes. Many factors including high fever, iron deficiency, stress, menopause, severe infection, diet, some medications, thyroid disease, child birth, and cancer treatments can cause hair loss.
While some types of hair loss are reversible, those resulting from an accident, infections of the scalp, surgery or those caused by heredity do not improve without intervention.
Male pattern baldness is the easiest form of hair loss to correct. It usually begins with a receding hairline or a thinning at the crown and progresses over a lifetime.
Restoring lost hair
Dr. Memar performs hair transplantation using the Artas and NeoGraft robotic and automated systems for patients in the Chicago area, providing the most natural looking, permanent solution for those who are bald or have thinning hair.
What is FUE and Robotic Hair Transplant surgery like?
During your consultation your surgeon will explain which type of anesthesia is best suited for your procedure. Most Artas and NeoGraft procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, using local anesthesia.
Types of hair transplants
Artas and NeoGraft hair transplantation is a process involving 1000-3000 of follicles. Each FUE may contain from 1 - 4 hairs. The micro-grafts are removed from a donor site located on the side or back of the head using the Artas robotic hair transplant system. Your surgeon then meticulously implants them into the bald or thinning area taking extra care to ensure that the new hair grafts are placed randomly, and will grow in the same direction as the existing hair and minimize that "pluggy look." FUE maintain a more natural appearance than previous techniques using larger grafts or hair plugs.

Please check with your insurance company for information regarding their coverage.
What about after Robotic Hair Transplant surgery?
After Dr. Memar performs Robotic Hair Transplant Surgery, you will wear a dressing for the first day or two. After the third day you may gently shampoo. Any itching or aching that occurs can be controlled with medication.
After 4-6 weeks, the transplanted hairs will fall out. It will be replaced in about 3-4 months with new hair growth.
