Dr. Rose has over 20 years of experience in hair restoration surgery and is a recognized leader in the field. He is recognized internationally for achieving natural results.
Early this year, the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami became 1 of only 15 clinics in the United States to offer the revolutionary hair restoration robotics system, ARTAS® System. Dr. Paul Rose speaks to South Florida residents on how the system works, and why this futuristic hair loss solution is more proficient than traditional FUE hair transplant procedures.
At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, Dr. Rose, who was one of the originators of the FUE technique, will perform every single extraction from your donor area to both minimize follicle damage and assure a high percentage of graft survival and growth at the same time assuring the best cosmetic appearance in the donor zone.
At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we have developed the most comprehensive approach for evaluating and treating patients with hair loss, while providing the very latest in scientific techniques at our state-of-the art facility. Unlike other clinics that perform hair restoration, both Dr. Nusbaum and Dr. Rose have extensive experience in medical hair loss therapy as well as research, and are also Board Certified in Dermatology, the only medical specialty with certified specialty residency training in hair loss and scalp diseases.

In vivo and in vitro finasteride treatment resulted in lower caspase-1 expression, supporting the idea that androgens influence innate immunity involved in the hair cycle in AGA. These findings may provide a basis for development of novel treatments for inflammatory skin and hair diseases.
Cosmetic surgery for men, including non-invasive procedures, is on the rise, and it’s no longer a closely held secret. From nose jobs and “man-boob” reduction, to liposuction, eyelid work, hair restoration and face and neck lifts, men are seeking to improve their appearance, both for themselves and to be attractive to others.
Dr. Nusbaum served on the faculty at the recent Annual Meeting of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery in Anchorage, Alaska.
By transplanting individual follicle units, we have consistently achieved a naturally appearing head of hair for our patients. Recently, however, the focus has shifted towards improving the appearance of the donor area.
As a specialist exclusively treating hair-loss patients, I am astonished by the number of teenage boys presenting with the beginning signs of male pattern baldness. Since we have not been tracking this group historically, we are not aware if the problem always existed and was simply ignored due to lack of awareness, or if occurrences increased for any reason in recent years.
Imagine a World Without Baldness. Doctor Nusbaum is quoted on the importance of the artistic element to creating a natural looking hairline in hair transplantation. A hair transplant is as much an aesthetic as a technical process, one that requires trained eyes as well as hands.
Dr Nusbaum’s talks about alopecia in the popular TV show Despierta America, January 2011. A greater sense of well-being. The days of plugs are long behind us. New procedures and sophisticated technology are creating astonishing results.
Latanoprost (Xalatan®), a prostaglandin used in eye preparations for glaucoma, has been reported to stimulate eyelash growth. This raises questions as to whether latanoprost may be one of the next agents considered for alopecia.
In a previous issue of the Forum, I reviewed Dr. Norman Orentreich’s original article which established the concept of “donor dominance” in androgenetic alopecia1. The finding that scalp autografts maintained their hair growth characteristics independent of the scalp recipient site has been the cornerstone of modern hair transplant surgery.
I highly recommend as a fascinating read Dr. Orentreich’s original article (Orentreich, N. Autografts in Alopecias and Other selected Dermatologic Conditions. Ann. N.Y. Acad. ScI; 83: 463-479, 1959).
If one performs enough hair transplant consultations, patients with alopecias of different etiologies will be encountered. The primary requirement in that first visit is to make a correct diagnosis. This is accomplished by taking a directed history, performing a scalp examination using specific clinical assessments and, in selected cases, performing microscopic analysis of hair and/or scalp biopsy.
The primary requirement in a hair transplant consultation is to make the correct diagnosis. The scalp examination usually begins by looking for a recognizable pattern. Generally recognizable patterns are seen in male or female pattern alopecia, traction alopecia, post-facelift alopecia, etc.
Scalp Pathology for the Hair Restoration Surgeon: Differentiating Chronic Telogen Effluvium from Female Pattern Hair Loss
I think that we can all agree that hair loss diagnosis in women presents a more formidable challenge than in their male counterparts. Since hair transplantation is contraindicated for certain alopecias, we need to approach the female candidate with a greater degree of awareness regarding the entire range of differential diagnostic possibilities.
Since the early eighties, I’ve been transplanting female patients and have found them to be very satisfied patients. With the advancements in microsurgery, women have taken a renewed interest in the procedure. We estimate that 20 percent of the female population in North America, or 20 million women, suffers from hair thinning.
SCALP DERMATOLOGY FOR THE HAIR TRANSPLANT SURGEON: Recognition and Management of Different Alopecias
With increasing consumer awareness regarding hair transplantation, patients with alopecias of different etiologies will present to the hair transplant surgeon rather than to dermatologists or general practitioners. Some of these conditions, if transplanted, can result in failure. A guide for recognition and management of these patients is presented.
As hair restoration surgeons we are all aware of the role of DHT in miniaturization of the hair follicle and of finasteride’s effect in prevention and reversal of this process.
Hair transplantation for hairline reconstruction is gaining popularity among women with hair thinning, high hairlines and those who have undergone cosmetic facial procedures which can alter the hairline, such as face and forehead lifts. While male hairline patterns have been described in the medical literature, these parameters, when applied to women, do not achieve appropriate facial framing and a “feminine” look.
Finasteride, which is the generic name for Propecia, has been approved for the treatment of Male Pattern Hair Loss since 1998. Finasteride works by inhibiting the enzyme ,5 alpha reductase type II, that forms DHT. There has been a lot of interest by both patients and physicians in dutasteride, which is a drug that inhibits both type I and type II 5 alpha reductase enzyme.
