Dr. Ron Shapiro – 6 Mos FUE (Artas) Result – 1506gr/3114 hairs

Recommended Posts

Great outcome for the use of grafts. 1500 sure is not a lot.


Excellent planning for the future by planting above his existing hairline in the front, as he appears that he may end up a NW5 in the future, so again, good job on the limited grafts used since the limited amount made a nice difference.


The thing about SMG is that you will never be led astray, you will never waste grafts, and they will have your long term interests at heart, above immediate satisfaction.

Soooo happy to see the first successful artas. I have been stressing out at 3 months no growth but this has given me hope ,)


Try not to stress at 3 mos post op, it's way too soon to worry about growth.

The hairs will just starting to grow between 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 mark and you need to allow time for the hairs to grow long enough to make a noticeable difference. At 6 months you should be able to see a good change. Final result at 12-14 months. Good luck.


Thanks Can't Decide and Slickers.




Thanks for the vote of confidence in our work and philosophy to restoring hair. The case size is indeed smaller than usual for someone with his level of hair loss, however, he is one of the first cases with the Artas.

Dr. Ron Shapiro never ceases to impress with his stellar results. I'd love to hear his thoughts on the ARTAS in general in terms of use, yield, consistency and how it compares (in his hands) to other extraction devices.


All the Best,
