| ||Robotic DHT||Traditional FUE|
|Step wise approach
||It is a two step process:
- Suction assisted follicle extraction
- Implantation to recipient site
|It is a multi-step process:
- Sharp punch scores the skin
- Blunt dissection into soft tissue
- Extraction by forceps
- Implantation of follicles
||Suction assists the follicle harvest without trauma and follicle damage.
||High risk of follicle damage while extraction through cutting equipment.
|Rotatory punch force
||Robot’s Rotatory punch force while extraction maximises the success rate to 99%.
||Manually rotatory punch force is not possible, so success rate deteriorates.
||Accuracy intact - Since the Robotic device is used that gives a precise rotating punch.
||Accuracy compromised - Poor angle of penetration can cause a transection of the bulb, destroying the graft.
||99% Graft yield is ensured.
||80% Graft yield reported.
||Robot assistance decreases the procedure time.
||Manual extraction increases the time of procedure.
||Involves only superficial dermis.
||Penetrates to deeper layers.
||Since no cutting tool involved, risk is negligible.
||Involvement of cutting tool, increases the risk of follicle damage.
||Practitioner can obtain 100% intact grafts.
||15-20% follicle damage is reported.
||Minimal because of no involvement of cutting tool.
||Minimal to moderate scars.
||Only 3% graft are destroyed while extraction.
||15-20% grafts destruction reported while extraction.
||100% transparency ensured as no wastage of follicles.
||10-20% less than Robotic DHT as wastage of folliclesare sure.
