Minimally Invasive Hair Restoration With (FUE) Follicular Unit Extraction And Surgical Robotic Technology

Dr. Yates is a world-renowned expert in Follicular Unit Extraction. He is so passionate and confident that this technique is superior to traditional methods; he only performs this highly skilled technique for hair transplantation.
Dr. Yates specialized skills make him one of the elite surgeons to educate and train other physicians to perform the specialized FUE hair transplantation technique both locally and internationally.

What is FUE?
While performed under local anesthesia, the hair or follicular units are individually harvested or punched from the back of the scalp or donor area in the hands of Dr. Yates using whatever instrument is best for his patient to obtain optimal results. He utilizes the most advanced ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System or various manual, hand-held instruments to delicately punch out each individual hair follicle. The camera system and algorithms in place with the robot or Dr. Yates skilled eyes and hands, choose the most robust hairs to remove for transplantation. With the traditional strip method for hair transplantation, not only do you have to take all hairs (even weak hair), the patient also incurs a painful cut, stitches and scar that they have to live with and conceal the rest of their lives.
Dr. Yates utilizes state of the art biological solutions such as Hypothermosol and ATPv (adenosine triphosphate) to store, protect and ensure optimal survival of these valuable grafts while awaiting transplant into the balding areas of the scalp for both men and women.
The finishing touch is completed by Dr. Yates artistic ability to create a natural hairline and hair density in his patient’s areas of thinning throughout the scalp. He uses micro-incisions to create sites to place each individual follicular unit, which will grow into a natural, undetectable pattern over the next year.
The results – – Phenomenal, Natural, Permanent Hair that patients can style anyway they desire without a scar in the back of the scalp.

With follicular unit extraction there are no transverse visible scars across the back of the head

FUE Hair Transplantation Advantages
  • No linear scar on the back of the head
  • Virtually undetectable!
  • Less invasive
  • Faster and less painful recovery
  • Allows surgeon to cherry pick best grafts that will result in optimal yield or hair growth
  • Low transection rate or graft damage – < 3%
  • Natural hairlines and optimal donor density with optimal aesthetic results
  • Can be performed when scalp is too tight for additional strip procedures
  • Great to harvest body hair like beard and chest hair

Follicular Unit Extraction Without SHAVING YOUR HEAD
**If someone is unable to shave the back of his or her scalp for FUE, he also has an answer for this. Dr. Yates is able to creatively trim the hair so that the donor area is completely concealed and you can return to work immediately without any visible signs of a procedure. Other body hair such as chest, back and other hair can also be utilized if necessary for transplantation onto your scalp. Dr. Yates is able to offer many options to his patients.

Beard Hair Follicular Unit Extraction
This exciting breakthrough is another new and innovative technique mastered by Dr. Yates. This option is offered to those individuals who have exhausted their donor hair from the scalp. Local anesthesia is used.

Even more technically challenging, FUE performed in the beard hair area requires greater precision and attention to detail because of the delicate tissue in the neck and vital nerve and vascular structures that lie very close to the surgical area. Beard hair, although a different texture from the hair on the head, is always in an anagen or growth phase so offers perfect added density to thinned areas of the scalp.
