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.

Can I Work Out After a Hair Transplant?

Can I Work Out After a Hair Transplant?

As we often remind our patients, hair transplant surgery is, in fact, surgery. As with most surgical procedures, hair transplants involve some recovery time, and that recovery time involves limitations on what you can and should do in the days and weeks after your surgery. Many individuals who want to improve their appearance and self-confidence through hair restoration also strive for the same goals through vigorous exercise regimens. As such, one of the first things they want to know after surgery is when they can start working out again.

In the long term, staying healthy through exercise and a proper diet can also help your transplanted hair stay healthy as well. But in the short-term, refraining from working out or other strenuous activity for a brief period is the best thing you can do. While you should always follow your hair transplant surgeon’s specific post-operative instructions, here are some general guidelines as to when you can resume your exercise routine after your transplant:

  • You should avoid all physical activity, much less exercise, on the day after your surgery. Your body and your hair need time to heal, and exertion so soon after your procedure divert your body’s resources from this critical task.
  • For the remainder of that first week after your transplant, you can resume some light activities, but you should still refrain from working our or other strenuous activity. Walking is fine; going for a run, not so much.  
  • The scalp typically takes between ten days and two weeks to heal enough to allow for a return to most of your usual activities, including most types of exercise or workouts. However, you should still hold off on weight lifting, cross-fit training, and other serious workout regimens for another week.
  • After about a month, most patients can return to their pre-transplant routines without limitation.

Of course, if you have concerns or experience anything unusual as you resume your workouts, err on the side of caution by putting a hold on your exercise and contacting your hair transplant surgeon for guidance. If you take it easy and slow in the early days after your surgery, you’ll be able to spend the rest of your days keeping yourself fit and enjoying your full head of hair.

How To Best Prepare for a Hair Transplant

How To Best Prepare for a Hair Transplant

How successful a hair transplant will be depends on several factors. The skill, technique, and precision of your surgeon is perhaps the most impactful element that goes into obtaining optimal results. But preparation – specifically, the things you do and should not do in the days and weeks before surgery –  is also critical.

Getting ready for your hair transplant means ensuring that your body, your scalp, and your hair are in the best shape possible for the procedure. And that starts with listening to your surgeon.

Three Weeks Before Surgery

Approximately three weeks before your surgery, Dr. Nusbaum and/or Dr. Rose will provide you with an overview of the procedure. This includes discussing how much donor hair (follicular units) he will extract and transplant to the recipient area. At this time, your doctor will also give you personally-tailored pre-operative instructions, including which daily medications you can continue taking and which ones you should discontinue, restrictions on diet and activities, and how long your hair transplant will take. You should pay close attention to these details and follow your doctor’s instructions to the letter.

One to Two Weeks Before Your Hair Transplant

  • Start taking vitamin C as directed to bolster your immune system.
  • Stop using nicotine of any kind, including cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, nicotine gum, nicotine patches, and e-cigarettes. Nicotine restricts blood vessels and can hinder the healing process.
  • Stop drinking alcohol, including wine, beer, and liquor.
  • Unless otherwise advised, don’t take aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs, whether prescription or over-the-counter. These can decrease blood flow, increase the chance of bleeding during surgery, and interfere with healing.
  • If possible, avoid products such as Advil, Aleve, Alka Seltzer, Bufferin, Excedrin, Nuprin, or Motrin. Use Tylenol if necessary.
  • Don’t cut your hair.
  • Massage your scalp for 10-20 minutes a day. This will help to soften the skin and get the blood flowing in the transplant areas.

24 Hours Before Surgery

  • Do not eat or drink anything after midnight, unless instructed otherwise.
  • You can take a shower, brush your teeth, and perform your ordinary morning routine, but do not use any hair gel, hair spray, hair conditioner, or cosmetics.

Arrange for a Ride Home

Since your hair transplant will involve the use of a mild sedative, you should arrange to have a friend or family member drive you to our office and pick you up after the surgery. Drivers can wait in our comfortable reception area, or they may visit The Shops of Merrick Park, located just across the street from our offices.

Is It Possible to Reverse a Hair Transplant?

Is It Possible to Reverse a Hair Transplant?

The world-renowned hair restoration surgeons at the Miami Hair & Skin Institute have helped thousands of patients turn back time by reversing the toll that it takes on their once-robust and full heads of hair. For the overwhelming majority of our hair transplant surgery patients, this is the first time they are undergoing the procedure. By providing exceptional results, we endeavor to make it the last time as well.  

Sometimes, however, patients come to us after they’ve undergone a transplant that fell far below their expectations or left them with results that look unattractive or obvious. Usually, this is the result of a surgeon who lacked the skill, talent, and experience to perform the procedure correctly, leaving the patient thousands of dollars poorer and with a transplant that causes more embarrassment than pride.

Many of these individuals, if given a chance, would rather return to the appearance they had before their botched transplant than live the disappointing results of their surgery. That is where hair transplant reversal comes in.

Why Do Patients Want to Reverse a Hair Transplant?

Reasons why patients may seek to reverse a hair transplant include:

  • Large or poorly transplanted grafts to the frontal hairline that appear like “hair plugs” or “doll hair”
  • A frontal hairline the surgeon placed too far forward
  • The surgeon put transplanted hair in the wrong direction
  • Prominent scarring in the donor and extraction areas of the scalp

Goals of A Hair Transplant Reversal

The objective of most hair transplant reversals is to make the person look like they never had hair transplant surgery in the first place. This can involve some of the same techniques we use in initial hair transplant surgery to replace hair from the donor area or to camouflage scarring.

While a hair transplant reversal can certainly resolve many of the disappointments that come from an earlier, subpar procedure, these efforts may not achieve the goals you had for your initial surgery. That is why it is so important to get it right the first time. Whether you are seeing us for your first hair transplant procedure or to improve on a previous one, our goal is always the same: to provide you with an exceptional patient experience and results that leave you beyond satisfied.

Call the Miami Hair Institute Today to Learn More About Hair Transplant Reversal

At the Miami Hair Institute, we know how much you invest – financially, emotionally, and otherwise – in your hair restoration. That is why they perform every transplant with the goal of exceeding your expectations.

Who Is Qualified to Perform a Hair Transplant Procedure?

Who Is Qualified to Perform a Hair Transplant Procedure?

If you needed open-heart surgery, you would want the best heart surgeon you could find operating on you. You wouldn’t want someone who “dabbles” in the procedure, and you certainly wouldn’t put your life in the hands of someone who wasn’t even a physician just because they promised you that they would do a good job.

While the stakes may not be life or death, hair transplant surgery is a significant investment for those seeking to resolve hair loss issues that have burdened them for years. It is also an invasive surgical procedure. That means the same high standards you would have for any other doctor should apply to your choice of a hair transplant physician. 

Plenty Claim to Be Qualified. Far Fewer Actually Are.

In South Florida, or almost anywhere else for that matter, there is no shortage of doctors, clinics, or other companies and facilities that hold themselves out as being the solution to your hair loss concerns. A quick Google search will make that abundantly clear. But not all of these individuals or entities have the skills and experience to deliver the results you expect, deserve, and are paying for. Many lack the specialized training required for hair transplant surgery. They don’t have the finely honed technique and advanced skills that can only come from years of experience and thousands of successful procedures.

Contrast these shortcomings with the extensive qualifications and global reputations shared by the hair transplant surgeons at the Miami Hair Institute.  Drs. Bernard Nusbaum and Paul Rose developed and utilize an innovative approach to evaluate and treat patients with hair loss, and use the very latest in surgical techniques and technologies at our state-of-the-art facility. Both of our surgeons are widely recognized leaders in the field of hair restoration surgery, responsible for developing the cutting-edge methods which have since become the global standard in hair restoration. Each brings over 25 years of experience and professional expertise to the art and science of hair transplant surgery and has successfully performed tens of thousands of procedures.

Questions to Ask a Hair Transplant Surgeon About Their Qualifications

When seeking a qualified hair transplant surgeon, you need to start by asking the right questions. When you have your first meeting consultation regarding hair restoration, make sure that you are meeting with an actual doctor, not merely a “consultant.” Then, ask the physician some or all of these questions:

  1. How many years of hair transplant surgery experience do you have?
  2. How many hair transplant surgeries have you performed?
  3. Did you have residency training in dermatology or surgery?
  4. Where did you get your medical/hair transplant surgery training?
  5. Are you an MD?
  6. Are you board certified? If so, with what board?
  7. Do you publish or give presentations about hair transplantation surgery?
  8. What kind of hair transplant surgeries do you perform?
  9. How do you decide which procedure is right for me?
  10. Do you have before and after pictures that can show me the results of your work?
  11. Are there former patients I can speak with to see their results and hear about their experience?
  12. Why, in your opinion, are you the right hair transplant surgeon for me?

By asking the right questions – and getting satisfactory and complete answers from an experienced and qualified hair transplant surgeon – you can make the right choice.
