Are You a Good Candidate for Hair Transplant Surgery?

Are You a Good Candidate for Hair Transplant Surgery?

No matter the reason for your hair loss, there is likely a solution. For many people, that solution could be hair loss medications like Rogaine or Propecia. For others, the right approach may involve low-level laser therapy or platelet-rich plasma therapy. But many patients who come to the Miami Hair Institute want to know whether hair transplant surgery is an available option. That’s understandable, because the cutting-edge hair transplant techniques we have pioneered deliver exceptional results that have restored the hair and confidence of thousands of patients.

But as effective as hair transplant surgery is, it isn’t right for everyone suffering from hair loss. Many factors play a role in determining whether a patient is a good candidate for hair transplant surgery. So how do you know if a transplant is a possibility for your hair restoration journey? The only way to know for sure is after a comprehensive hair loss evaluation performed by an experienced hair restoration physician. Generally, however, here are three characteristics that may mean that hair transplant surgery is a good option for you:

Sufficient Supply of Donor Hair

You can’t transplant what isn’t there. For a hair transplant to work, there actually has to be hair to move to the balding or thinning areas of your scalp. And that hair has to come from you. Unlike organ transplants where another person is the donor, hair transplants involve using your own hair. We typically take hair from areas on the back or sides of your head and transplant it to the treatment area, where it will continue to grow. Both male and female transplant surgery candidates must have a healthy and sufficient amount of hair growth in the donor area at the back of the head for transplant surgery to be a viable hair loss solution.

Permanent Hair Loss

Many hair loss cases are temporary or seasonal, meaning that lost hair should eventually grow back on its own. Surgery is only an appropriate treatment for those suffering from permanent hair loss, such as androgenetic alopecia.

Adults Only

While children and teenagers can experience permanent hair loss, their hair loss pattern may not be fully developed while they are still growing, making it challenging to perform the procedure in a way that will yield optimal results. As such, hair transplant surgery is only recommended as a potential treatment for individuals 18 and older.

Schedule an Appointment for a Hair Loss Evaluation Today

As noted, you will only know whether you are a candidate for hair transplant surgery after consulting with a hair restoration surgeon. At the Miami Hair Institute, we evaluate each hair loss patient using a comprehensive and proven methodology to determine the cause of your hair loss. With this information, we can determine the cause of hair loss and develop an approach best suited to your condition and goals.

The Pandemic Has Changed The Way We Care For Our Hair

The Pandemic Has Changed The Way We Care For Our Hair

After almost a year of living with the pandemic, we understand that the impact of  COVID-19 extends far beyond those who actually get sick with the virus. We have all changed the way we live, the way we do our jobs, and the way we care for ourselves. This includes how we are treating our hair.

It has been established that hair loss is one of the many unfortunate consequences of COVID-19 infection. Even for otherwise healthy individuals, the stress of our current circumstances has led to an increase in cases of sudden stress-related hair loss. As reported by NPR, one dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic who used to see about five patients a week with stress-related hair loss and now sees between 20 to 25.

But hair loss is not the only way that the pandemic had changed the health of our hair. Lockdowns and quarantines and working from home have led many people to dramatically alter their hair care regimes. People who don’t go into the office every day or aren’t heading out for nights on the town are not shampooing their hair as often as they used to, nor are they using as much product. Shuttered hair salons kept people from getting their hair cut or styled, and even when they are allowed to reopen, many folks decide that it is not yet worth the risk.

While folks may be taking a more laissez-faire approach to their hair because of convenience or safety concerns, one unintended result is that their hair may be better off for it. 

Shampooing every day can open and close hair cuticles so much that it breaks, which leads to split ends and breakage, especially when combined with styling or heating products. People who have reduced the frequency of shampooing or who have switched to dry shampoos are seeing stronger, healthier-looking hair. So too are those who are giving their hair a break from gels, sprays, curling irons, or blow dryers.

The pandemic will be behind us, hopefully soon. While we will be happy to say goodbye to face masks, social distancing, and quarantines, we may want to continue the gentler approach to hair care that many of us adopted during our COVID-19 days.

Hair Loss After Surgery: Why Does It Happen and What Can You Do?

Hair Loss After Surgery: Why Does It Happen and What Can You Do?

Most invasive surgeries, as necessary as they may be, aren’t easy on the body. The trauma of surgery is why we need sedation and anesthesia during procedures and why it takes days or weeks to recover. After surgery, the disruption to the body’s normal functioning can linger and manifest itself in many ways, including temporary hair loss.

Causes of Post-Surgical Hair Loss

Post-surgical hair loss is a common phenomenon and is a form of telogen effluvium (TE), a condition caused by disruptions to the hair follicle growth cycle.

In a normal hair growth cycle, follicles go through a process that lasts for several years at a time. Hair follicles don’t continuously produce new hairs. Instead, follicles cycle through resting phases known as telogens.

The American Hair Loss Association estimates that 10 to 20 percent of hair follicles are in a telogen state at any given time. But if the proportion of telogen hairs rises above 20 percent, it is often an indication of telogen effluvium.

The stress caused by surgery can sometimes put hair follicles in a more prolonged resting state than usual. Like psychological and emotional stress, that caused by surgery can lead directly to hair loss.  This is because stress may cause the body to divert essential hair growth nutrients such as biotin, iron, zinc, protein away from vital organs, which in turn can cause hair thinning and TE.

Another hair loss condition can arise in particularly lengthy surgeries when the patient’s head remains in one position for hours at a time. Positional alopecia occurs when blood flow to hair follicles is cut off because of the pressure put on part of the scalp. Research has found that positional alopecia is most common in cardiac surgeries and extensive reconstructive surgeries.

While all surgical procedures have the potential to cause telogen effluvium and hair loss, procedures that involve incisions on the scalp, such as head and neck surgeries, may also increase the risk of hair follicles shutting down.

Minimizing Post-Surgical Hair Loss

As noted, post-surgical hair loss is almost always a temporary phenomenon. But while you may not be able to prevent telogen effluvium entirely, you can minimize the severity of hair loss after surgery by eating a nutritious diet, getting sufficient sleep and exercise, and managing your stress levels.

You can also discuss your concerns with a hair restoration physician who may have additional suggestions about how you can reduce hair loss after your procedure.

What Is A Scalp Biopsy And Why Would You Need One?

What Is A Scalp Biopsy And Why Would You Need One?

You can’t effectively fix a problem unless you know what it is. That is why understanding the reasons behind hair loss is an essential first step in the hair restoration journey. By understanding the cause of a patient’s hair loss, our hair restoration physicians can develop and implement the most effective treatment strategy specifically tailored to their unique characteristics.

At the Miami Hair Institute, we use a comprehensive methodology that includes gathering a detailed medical history, performing an in-depth scalp examination using state-of-the-art diagnostic and imaging tools, and taking hair mass measurements. If appropriate and indicated, we may perform blood tests to identify any hormonal imbalances or deficiencies that might be contributing to a patient’s hair loss. And in some cases, we may recommend a scalp biopsy to get to the bottom of the issue.

What is a Scalp Biopsy?

When we perform a scalp biopsy, we extract one or two small specimens of scalp tissue and hair follicles for analysis. Each sample is about the size of a pencil eraser. To gather the specimens, we clean a discreet area of the scalp, trim the hair in that area, and administer a local anesthetic. Once we remove the samples, we close the small scar with stitches that we will take out a couple of weeks after the biopsy. The whole procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. After gathering the specimens, we submit them to a skin pathologist specializing in diagnosing hair loss problems.

Why Would We Perform A Scalp Biopsy?

When a follicle scarring process appears to be the cause of a patient’s hair loss, a scalp biopsy is often necessary to establish or confirm a diagnosis. We can use the results of a biopsy to make or confirm a diagnosis of alopecia. We can also obtain important information in cases of unexplained hair loss or when the potential for regrowth is in doubt.

Call the Miami Hair Institute Today For Your Personal Hair Loss Consultation

Not all patients require a scalp biopsy to determine the cause of hair loss and choose the best treatment options. But the first step in discovering why you are losing your hair and what you can do about it is to schedule a hair loss consultation. We invite you to schedule an evaluation at the Miami Hair Institute. Drs. Nusbaum and Rose are internationally acclaimed hair restoration surgeons with more than 40 years of combined experience.

Everything You Need To Know About No-Shave FUE

Everything You Need To Know About No-Shave FUE

The development and adoption of the follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique in 2004 and the introduction of the advanced ARTAS System shortly thereafter were sea changes in hair transplant surgery. One of the many advantages of FUE over older hair transplant methods, in addition to unmatched precision and shorter recovery times, was that it caused minimal scarring, reducing visible evidence that a patient had a hair transplant procedure.

Now, FUE has taken another leap forward that makes it even harder to detect that a transplant was performed while still delivering exceptional results: No-shave FUE.

Concealment and Camouflage

As the name implies, this approach eliminates the need to shave the head in order to obtain donor hairs. In an FUE procedure, the surgeon precisely moves selected follicular units from the donor area with an image-guided 0.8-1-millimeter circular tool in a scattered pattern. 

Until quite recently, however, extraction of donor hairs in FUE procedures required that the area be shaven to approximately 1/25th of an inch so the surgeon could identify and extract the follicular units to be targeted for transplantation.

With no-shave FUE, the surgeon only needs to trim the donor follicle hairs that they plan to transplant. The trimmed donor follicles are therefore hidden and blend in amidst the surrounding full-length hair, resulting in a completely normal appearance of the donor area after surgery.  

Additionally, in the recipient area, the non-shaved natural hairs in the recipient area will help hide the transplanted follicular units. As the newly transplanted grafts grow, they blend in with the existing hairs, thickening the area and providing more density to the scalp.

While no-shave FUE surgery effectively and quickly camouflages the fact that a patient had hair transplant surgery, the procedure itself may take more time. That is because it is more technically challenging and labor-intensive. In such a surgery, it is therefore even more critical that your hair transplant surgeon has the skill, precision, and experience to ensure optimal results.

Miami Hair Institute’s Dr. Rose was one of the pioneers and developers of the FUE technique. Both Dr. Rose and Dr. Nusbaum have performed the procedure on thousands of patients since 2004 with exceptional results.

Guidelines for Patients Seeking Hair Transplant During COVID-19

Guidelines for Patients Seeking Hair Transplant During COVID-19

For months, the COVID-19 pandemic essentially brought all elective surgeries and other procedures to a halt. Everything from knee surgeries to colonoscopies to cosmetic procedures were put on hold. Hair transplant surgeries were no different. But medical practices, including the Miami Hair Institute, have since reopened and resumed scheduling and conducting long-delayed surgeries.  

Guidelines For Hair Restoration Physicians and Practices

However, hair restoration physicians have needed to update the protocols, policies, and procedures involved in hair transplants in order to ensure the health and safety of patients and staff. To that end, the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS)—the world’s premiere authority on hair loss and hair restoration— has established guidelines for resuming hair restoration practices. and provided patients guidance in finding hair restoration clinics deemed “COVID-protected facilities.”  

As the ISHRS stated in announcing the practice guidelines:

“The ISHRS’s general recommendations for practice reopening includes following members’ national/local governmental health authority guidelines, practicing strict social distancing and using appropriate PPE, masks and sanitation. ISHRS members are also advised to adhere to strict universal precautions for infection control and utilize comprehensive COVID screening tools and laboratory testing before patients can enter practices.”

At the Miami Hair Institute, the health and safety of our patients is our top priority. We adhere to ore exceed all requirements and recommendations established by the ISHRS, CDC, and state and local authorities when it comes to our facilities, processes, and surgical procedures.

Guidelines For Patients

In addition to its recommendations for hair transplant surgeons and hair restoration practices, the ISHRS has also provided patients with important guidance they can use as they look for hair restoration clinics and schedule transplant surgery.

Specifically, the ISHRS recommends that hair restoration patients do the following:

  • Know Your Health Status
  • Follow Personal Protection Guidelines
  • Look For A Clinic That Is A “COVID-Protected Facility,” which is one that:
    • Routinely asks patients for a relevant COVID-19 history of their own health and their contacts. It is important that patients provide accurate information.
    • Follows social distancing guidelines by limiting contact of patients with one another whether in consultation or in a procedure and will arrange waiting room seating accordingly.
    • Uses suitable equipment/PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) as recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) or another equivalent governmental agency.
    • Routinely uses relevant health histories and daily temperature monitoring of all clinic staff and patients as part of their strategy to prevent contagion. Additionally, and where available, follows all government guidelines on use of testing to monitor staff.
    • In addition to using proper PPE, it uses appropriate cleansing, disinfecting and sterilization procedures throughout the office/clinic. Also, uses proper waste disposal methods for any materials that could be contaminated.
    • Advises patients of handwashing protocols in the office/clinic and how to change gloves, gown and masks.
    • Assures the public that the staff have received additional training with regards to proper COVID-19 infection control methods.

The Miami Hair Institute Remains Committed To Helping Our Patients Through These Difficult Times

As noted, the Miami Hair Institute is committed to ensuring protecting the health of our patients and staff and is a “COVID-Protected Facility” according to ISHRS guidelines. During this time, we continue to help our clients address their hair loss issues safely and effectively through our advanced hair restoration surgical techniques, technology, and alternative non-invasive treatments.

What Women Should Know Before a Hair Transplant

What Women Should Know Before a Hair Transplant

Many cases of hair loss in women share the same cause as most cases of hair loss in men: androgenetic alopecia. This hereditary condition affects over three million Americans annually. But the way women typically lose their hair – in a diffuse pattern throughout the scalp rather than in distinct areas or patches – is different than for men. And women also shed or lose hair for reasons unique to their gender, including the hormonal fluctuations that accompany pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause.

The way women lose their hair and the reasons why they do so mean that hair transplant surgery may not be a viable option for restoring their hair. That doesn’t mean that women suffering from hair loss have to live with their condition – they don’t. Plenty of effective non-surgical treatments are available. But women should know and understand why hair transplant surgery may be off the table for them.

How Women Lose Their Hair Can Make Hair Transplant Surgery Difficult

In men, androgenetic alopecia follows a familiar, predictable pattern. It starts with shedding in the front that causes the hairline to gradually recede. This progresses to more pronounced hair loss across the top of the head, and finally toward the crown. In most men with pattern baldness, hair remains relatively robust in the back and sides of the head.

Androgenetic alopecia usually progresses differently in women, however. Instead of losing hair in isolated areas, women’s hair loss tends to occur throughout the scalp.

This diffuse pattern of hair loss in women makes it a challenge to safely extract the donor hair necessary for a transplant. In hair transplant surgery for men, donor hairs are typically harvested from the back or sides of the head, which remain largely untouched by pattern baldness in other areas. But in women, potential donor hairs share space with thinning areas. That means these hairs also share the same deficiencies that caused neighboring hairs to fall out. That also means the hairs won’t likely survive and thrive if transplanted to a recipient area.

Some Hair Loss Conditions In Women Can Make A Hair Transplant A Viable Option

While only a relatively small percentage of women are good candidates for hair transplant surgery, the procedure can be effective in restoring hair in women who have certain types of hair loss issues. Specifically, women with the following conditions should explore the possibility of a hair transplant with their hair restoration physician:

  • Women who have suffered hair loss due to traction alopecia.
  • Women who have had previous cosmetic surgery and are concerned about hair loss around the incision sites.
  • Women who have pattern baldness that manifests itself similarly to how it does in men and have a donor area unaffected by androgenetic alopecia.
  • Women who experience hair loss due to trauma.
  • Women with alopecia marginalis, a condition that appears very similar to traction alopecia.

What Men Should Know Before a Hair Transplant

What Men Should Know Before a Hair Transplant

You’ve had enough. Watching your hairline recede, seeing those bald patches getting larger, feeling embarrassed or depressed about looking older than you are – all of these can reach a point where you decide to do something about it. Every year, tens of thousands of men seek treatment for hair loss, including exploring the possibility of hair transplant surgery. 

If you are one of those men, you should arm yourself with some information as you begin your hair restoration journey. Here are a few things you should know while considering a hair transplant.

They’ve Come A Long Way

The first thing you need to know about hair transplant surgery is that what you think you know about the procedure and the results may not be true anymore. The hair restoration techniques and technology that we use today have come a long way over the past several decades. The days of “hair plugs,” “doll hair,” and long, visible scars are history. Hair transplant surgery is less invasive, more natural-looking, and requires less recovery time than it did in the past.

There Are Non-Surgical Alternatives To Hair Restoration

As much as you may want to regain a full head of hair, you may be averse to the idea of undergoing surgery if you don’t have to. Fortunately, there are several non-surgical hair restoration approaches that may be better suited for your needs, especially if you are not a good candidate for hair transplant surgery (see below).

Several medications, including Rogaine and Propecia, can help stop hair loss and even grow new hair in some men. Low-level laser therapy, platelet-rich plasma therapy, and stem cell therapy all are safe, proven, and effective in treating hair loss in many men.

You May Not Be A Good Candidate For Hair Transplant Surgery

Not every man can undergo hair transplant surgery and get the results they want. For hair transplant surgery to work, the patient actually needs to have hair to transplant. The surgeon needs to take hair from areas on the sides or back of your head and transplant them to the recipient area, where the follicles will continue to grow. If you lack sufficient donor hair, you need to explore other hair restoration alternatives.

You Need To Pick The Right Hair Transplant Surgeon

Choosing the right hair transplant surgeon to call for an initial consultation can be an intimidating and confusing process. There are plenty of doctors, clinics, and other hair restoration “professionals” here in South Florida who are more than happy to take your money with promises that they aren’t prepared or able to keep.   

When you arrange for a hair loss evaluation, make sure you are meeting with a doctor, not merely a “consultant.” Then ask the physician some or all of these 15 questions. Once you have found the doctor who you are comfortable with and have confidence in, they will recommend the hair restoration approach best suited for your specific needs and goals.

Schedule an Appointment for a Hair Loss Evaluation at the Miami Hair Institute Today

If you’re considering a hair transplant, you will only know whether this is a viable option after consulting with a hair restoration surgeon. At the Miami Hair Institute, we evaluate each hair loss patient with a comprehensive and proven methodology. We obtain a detailed medical history, perform an in-depth scalp examination using state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and, if indicated, take blood tests to detect any underlying imbalances or deficiencies that may be contributing to the hair loss problem. With this information, we can determine the cause of hair loss and the most effective treatment option.

Are Beard Hair Transplants Possible?

Are Beard Hair Transplants Possible?

Beards aren’t just for hipsters and baseball pitchers anymore. Even before pandemic quarantines made millions of men ditch their razors, guys were growing out their beards in increasing numbers. But not every man who wants a beard can grow one. Just as with hair growth on the scalp, your ability can grow hair on your face can be hobbled by your genes. Sometimes, peach fuzz is all you’re going to get.

Fortunately, the same techniques and technology that have allowed men to restore full, natural heads of hair can help them grow beards as well.

How Beard Transplants Work

In a beard transplant, surgeons use a procedure very similar to the primary technique they use to restore hair on the scalp – Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).  Pioneered by the Miami Hair Institute’s own Dr. Paul Rose, FUE is a minimally invasive method of removing and transplanting individual hair follicles for natural-looking results.

In a beard transplant using FUE, the surgeon will use a circular needle called a “punch to extract donor hair from the back and sides of your scalp. One of the many benefits of FUE is that it involves removing follicular units from the donor area in a scattered pattern. This eliminates the visible linear scar often associated with traditional donor strip harvesting.

A significant number of grafts need to be extracted from the donor area to achieve the appearance of a full beard – roughly between 2,500-3,000 individual hair grafts. If you only want to fill in some patchy spots, you won’t need as many grafts as you would for an entire beard.

How Are Donor Hairs Transplanted in a Beard Transplant?

Once your surgeon extracts the hair from your donor area, they will make small incisions throughout your beard area. The quality and precision of these incisions will determine the density, direction, and angle of your beard growth.

How Long Will A Beard Transplant Last?

Once your surgeon transplants your follicles, a procedure that should take less than a day, you will walk out of your surgeon’s office with a beard. But prepare yourself for the probability that the transplanted hairs will likely fall out within two to three weeks after your transplant surgery. This is no cause for a panicked call to your surgeon. Losing these hairs is perfectly normal and expected. Those hairs will grow back permanently within a couple of months and you will have the full beard you’ve been looking for.

Once the permanent whiskers grow in, you can treat them as if they were your own naturally grown ones – because they are. You can shave, clean, and trim your beard as if you’ve had it for years.

Are You a Good Candidate For a Beard Transplant?

As with any hair transplant surgery, beard transplants require a sufficient supply of donor hairs. If you are considering a beard transplant, you should consult with an experienced hair transplant surgeon to determine whether you have enough transplant-ready hairs and are a good candidate for the procedure.

5 Benefits of an FUE Hair Transplant

5 Benefits of an FUE Hair Transplant

The world has changed a lot in the last 16 years. That includes the way we approach hair restoration. Advancements in technique and technology have radically altered and improved hair transplant surgery. Specifically, the dawn of the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique in 2004 and the development of the advanced ARTAS System shortly after that have dramatically improved the process and results we can obtain through hair transplant surgery.  

Miami Hair Institute’s Dr. Rose was one of the developers of the FUE technique. Both Dr. Rose and Dr. Nusbaum have performed the procedure on thousands of patients since 2004 with exceptional results.

Here are the top five benefits of FUE hair transplant surgery:

  1. Minimally invasive.

We perform FUE transplants on an outpatient basis in our comfortable, welcoming offices using only local anesthesia. Patients arrive on the morning of the procedure and can go home the same day.

  1. Unmatched precision.

Our approach utilizes the image-guided robotics of the ARTAS system, which provides unmatched precision in hair transplantation. The ARTAS procedure restores your hair by transplanting permanent hair from the back or side of the head into thinning areas, including the hairline.

Using the ARTAS system, we digitally scan the scalp, identifying hair in its natural groupings. High-resolution digital imaging provides crystal-clear detail of the donor area. We then carefully remove the selected follicles while most of your hair is left untouched and undamaged so that the donor area retains its natural appearance. We transplant the donor hair into thinning areas where it will then grow naturally, just as it did before.

  1. Quicker recovery time.

One of the benefits of FUE is that healing and recovery after an FUE procedure tend to be quicker and involve less post-operative restrictions than other hair transplant methods.

  1. Minimal and barely visible scarring.

During an FUE transplant, we remove follicular units from the scalp one-by-one. By doing so, we avoid the more apparent linear scar often associated with other hair transplant methods. Instead, scarring occurs in a dot-like pattern that is virtually undetectable after healing and regrowth. This minimal scarring means that patients can wear their hair very short (but not completely shaven) without any visible evidence that they have had a hair transplant procedure.

  1. Higher graft survival rate.

FUE transplants have a 90-95% hair graft survival rate compared to the approximately 75% survival rate of the older FUT method. The precision harvesting of FUE minimizes trauma or transection of the hair follicles during the harvesting process.
