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.

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.

FUT vs. ARTAS: Which Procedure is Right for Me?

At the Miami Hair Institute, we offer two highly refined approaches to surgical hairline restoration: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) using the advanced ARTAS System and Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG). Both of these transplant techniques provide impressive and natural-looking results yet involve significant differences in how we achieve these outcomes.

Which approach is right for you will depend on several factors, such as the health and quantity of donor hair, the extent of thinning and balding, reasons behind your hair loss, and the condition of your scalp. After you meet with us for your personalized and comprehensive hair loss evaluation, we will be able to determine the procedure and technique that is best suited to give you the full, healthy, and youthful-looking hair you want.  

Here are the primary differences between FUE using the ARTAS System and the FUG technique

Follicular Unit Extraction Using the ARTAS System

A minimally invasive technique for transplanting individual hair follicles for natural-looking results, FUE involves harvesting donor hair using a circular needle called a “punch.” With a 0.8-1-millimeter circular tool, we remove donor follicular units in a scattered pattern that avoids the linear scar associated with traditional donor strip harvesting. Because the scars are tiny and dot-like in appearance, patients have the freedom to wear shorter hairstyles shortly after a FUE transplant.

Miami Hair Institute’s Dr. Rose was one of the originators of the FUE technique, and he has performed the procedure on thousands of patients since 2004 with outstanding results.

Our approach utilizes the advanced image-guided robotics of the ARTAS system, which delivers unmatched precision in hair transplantation. The system uses state-of-the-art robotic technology to assist physicians with difficult, manual methods that require repetitive and precise movements. The use of ARTAS significantly decreases the risk of human error.

We do approximately 300 ARTAS cases a year and are NUMBER ONE in the Eastern United States in procedures performed.

The ARTAS procedure restores your hair by transplanting permanent hair from the back or side of the head into thinning areas. We use the ARTAS system to digitally scan the scalp, identifying hair in its natural groupings. High-resolution digital imaging provides unparalleled detail of the donor area.  The exceptional control of parameters provided by ARTAS, such as spacing between harvests, graft dissection depth, and hair angles, yield robust and viable grafts.

We then precisely remove the selected hair while most of your hair is left untouched so that the area retains its natural appearance. We transplant the donor hair into thinning areas where it will then grow naturally on the hairline just as it did before.

Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG)

Meticulous attention to detail and a careful, methodical approach can accomplish excellent hair restoration results using Follicular Unit Grafting. In a FUG procedure, we transfer intact follicular units from the permanent donor zone in the back of the scalp to the recipient areas.

To remove follicular units from the back of the scalp with minimal damage, we remove the donor tissue in one piece. This “Single Strip Harvesting” preserves the follicular units, prevents damage (transection) to the individual hair follicles, and ensures maximum growth.

After harvesting, we carefully subdivide the donor tissue is into individual, naturally occurring follicular units while the non-hair bearing skin surrounding each follicle is carefully removed to avoid damage to the hair follicles.

We use a revolutionary technique developed by our own Dr. Rose to minimize the visibility of donor strip sites used in FUG. The LEDGE closure is a virtually non-scarring closing method that allows hair to grow through the donor-area scar, providing added camouflage. Finally, we insert follicular unit grafts into tiny sites in the recipient area, which heal in just a few days, without leaving any marks.

Unmatched Experience and Unparalleled Results in Hair Restoration

No matter what hair transplant technique is ultimately right for you, the world-renowned hair transplant surgeons at the Miami Hair Institute have the skill, talent, and experience to consistently deliver exceptional results.

Can a Hair Transplant Be Reversed?

Post-Hair Transplant: How Much Time Will I Need to Take Off?

As is the case with any surgery, hair transplants involve some recovery time and brief limitations on what activities you can engage in. This includes your job, your exercise regimen, your hair care routine, and diet. Your body needs time to heal and your transplanted follicles need to be treated with care after your surgery, so be prepared for some downtime.

The good news is that the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique that we use at the Miami Hair Institute involves significantly less recovery time than older transplant methods. That said, here is how much time you may need to take off from various activities after your hair transplant surgery.

Your Job

Depending on the nature of what you do for a living and where you do it, you may need to be ready to take some time off. We use a mild sedative during the surgery, so even if you work from home, you should plan on resting for the remainder of the day after your surgery. Most of our patients can get back to work the day after surgery, but if your job involves a lot of physical activity, you will likely want to take several days up to a week off.  

Your Exercise Regimen

In the first few days after your surgery, your body needs to spend its energy healing, not working out. Don’t run, cycle, or lift weights within three days after your surgery, and avoid vigorous exercise or heavy lifting for at least one week.

Your Hair Care Routine

Wait for at least 24 hours after your surgery before washing your hair. When showering, wash your scalp gently under cool water. Avoid brushing your hair for as long as possible, stay away from hot styling tools for at least a week, don’t wear tight bands or clips, and instead of rubbing your hair to dry it, apply light pressure.

Your Alcohol Consumption

Hold off on any celebratory cocktails, wine, or beer for at least three days after your procedure. Alcohol can act as a blood-thinner and inhibit and slow down the healing process.

Schedule an Appointment for a Hair Loss Evaluation Today

The foregoing are general guidelines, but you should always follow your doctor’s specific post-operative instructions in terms of what you should and shouldn’t be doing after your transplant.

Hair Transplant Repairs vs. Reversals: What’s the Difference?

Most of the hair transplant patients we see at the Miami Hair Institute are undergoing the procedure for the first time. Our goal is to make it their last time as well, leaving them with full, natural-looking hair and exceeding their expectations as to what hair transplant surgery can accomplish. Unfortunately, however, many patients come to us after undergoing a transplant somewhere else that fell far short of their expectations, leaving them with a sloppy and obvious hair transplant or with visible and unsightly scars. These patients desperately look to us to fix things, and we endeavor to do so in one of two ways: hair transplant repair and hair transplant reversal.

Hair Transplant Repair

Hair transplant repair involves working with a previously but poorly performed transplant to get the patient results close to what they originally expected. It can also include work to conceal either the obviousness of their transplant or scars from their earlier procedure.

Problems with earlier surgery that often lead people to undergo a hair transplant repair include:

  • Large or poorly transplanted hair grafts to the frontal hairline that look like “hair plugs” or “doll hair”
  • A frontal hairline placed too far forward
  • Transplanted hair set in the incorrect direction
  • Scarring in the donor areas of the scalp

If the problem is with unnatural looking “hair plugs,” we can often remove them, dissect them into smaller grafts, and then re-transplant the hairs into the scalp. We may also recommend undergoing a new follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure so we can obtain additional donor hairs that we can transplant to the recipient area. This can further increase the full, natural look of the transplant. We can also use FUE to camouflage scars by transplanting hair to areas where scarring has occurred.

Hair Transplant Reversal

If the goal of hair transplant repair is to make things look like they should have after the initial surgery, the purpose of a hair transplant reversal is to make it look like the patient never had hair transplant surgery in the first place. This can involve the same techniques described above.

Hair transplant repair and reversal procedures can undoubtedly improve the results of a prior operation. But they still may not achieve the goals you had for your initial surgery. That is one reason why it is so critical to get things right the first time. Whether you are seeing us for your first hair transplant or are looking to us to improve the results of a previous one, our goal is always the same: to provide you with an exceptional patient experience and hair transplant results that leave you beyond satisfied.

Is Hair Transplant Surgery Painful?

Surgery of any kind isn’t anyone’s idea of how to spend a day. Surgery takes time and effort, during, before, and after your surgeon does his or her work. Hair transplant surgery is no different. But just because hair transplant surgery isn’t a day at the beach doesn’t mean it needs to be unpleasant, and it certainly doesn’t need to be painful. In fact, at the Miami Hair & Skin Institute, we make patient comfort a top priority during our hair transplant procedures. If you have been apprehensive about hair transplant surgery because of concerns about it being a painful process, rest assured that pain is not part of the program.

A Relaxing Environment, A Light Sedative, and Local Anesthesia

When you arrive, our friendly and knowledgeable staff will do everything they can to put you at ease and make you comfortable. You will meet with your surgeon who will describe exactly what will take place and what you can expect during your procedure, even if they have previously discussed such matters with you. Feel free to ask your surgeon any questions or express any concerns you may have. We are committed to making your hair transplant surgery as successful as possible. That includes keeping you fully informed as to what is about to happen.

You will then settle into your surgery suite, which we designed to be a welcoming and relaxed environment rather than a cold and sterile one. A technician will massage your scalp before administering local anesthesia, like the kind dentists use. The massage creates a vibration on the scalp that works in combination with the anesthesia to minimize any discomfort.

We will also give you a mild sedative at the beginning of the session to minimize any anxiety you may be feeling. The brief time it takes to anesthetize the area is the only marginally uncomfortable part of the procedure, and the above technique usually causes less discomfort than a visit to the dentist.

Rest, Relax, and Tune Out During Surgery

During your surgery, you can either rest, read, listen to music, or watch movies or TV on your phone or tablet. Your procedure will likely take several hours; the exact duration of your session will depend on the number of grafts we are transplanting. For a 2000 graft case, the average time is about six hours.

After your hair transplant surgery, your doctor will give you detailed post-operative instructions to help you heal and get you back to your routine as quickly as possible, which is often the very next day.

As noted, since the procedure involves 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 your surgery.

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

If concerns about pain have kept you from considering hair transplant surgery, we invite you to contact the Miami Hair Institute and arrange a personalized consultation with one of our world-renowned hair restoration physicians. We are confident that once you learn how pain-free the procedure is, you will want to move forward and resolve the hair loss issues that have bothered you for so long.
