Dr. Bernstein appears on The Bald Truth where he discusses the advantages of creating recipient sites prior to follicular unit harvesting in an FUE hair transplant procedure. By allowing recipient sites to begin healing, “pre-making” the sites helps avoid graft popping and potentially reduces mechanical injury during graft insertion.
Dr. Bernstein and Restoration Robotics use the facility at Bernstein Medical to demonstrate recipient site creation with the ARTAS System.
In Part 2 of our video series on Robotic FUE hair transplantation, Dr. Bernstein describes the manual recipient site creation process in detail. Included is an explanation why, in FUE procedures, recipient sites are created before the follicular unit grafts are extracted from the donor area.
