Can a Hair Transplant Be Reversed?

FAQ: Will I Get Full Coverage From a Hair Transplant?

When you decide to undergo hair transplant surgery, you want to go into the procedure with appropriate and reasonable expectations. Every patient is different and comes to the hair restoration journey with their own unique hair loss issues and goals. But all hair transplant patients want to see balding or thinning areas of their scalp replaced by full, robust, youthful-looking hair. That is why one of the most common questions patients ask us at the Miami Hair & Skin Institute is whether they will get full coverage from a hair transplant. 

That question should actually be two questions: 

  • Can a hair transplant provide full coverage?
  • Will my hair transplant give me full coverage? 

The answer to the first question is yes. Hair transplant surgery using the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure pioneered by our surgeons can provide full coverage, eliminating bald spots and filling in areas of thinning hair. You can see before and after pictures of our patients to get a sense of what we can accomplish with our cutting-edge techniques and technology. The FUE procedures we perform seamlessly interweave computer-guided extraction with our surgeons’ precision in transplanting follicles to the donor area. 

Sufficient Donor Hair Needed

The answer to the second question is more complicated. The success of any hair transplant depends a great deal on whether the patient has sufficient donor hair that can be transplanted into the targeted areas of the scalp. 

The donor area is found on the back and sides of the scalp where permanent hair growth remains unaffected by male pattern baldness. Since this hair is permanently growing, it makes it ideal for transplantation as it will continue to grow in its new home.

In an FUE transplant, the surgeon takes hair follicles from these donor areas and transplants them to the treatment area, where they will continue to grow. Both male and female hair replacement candidates need healthy hair growth in the donor area at the back of the head for hair transplant surgery to offer the possibility of full coverage. 

You won’t know whether or not you have sufficient donor hair or can get full coverage from a hair transplant procedure until and unless you meet with an experienced hair transplant surgeon who can provide you with a personalized evaluation. 

That is why we invite you to reach out to us at the Miami Hair & Skin Institute today. Our Drs. Nusbaum and Rose are internationally acclaimed hair restoration surgeons with more than 40 years of combined experience.

Can I Have a Guarantee For My Hair Transplant? 

Can I Have a Guarantee For My Hair Transplant? There are few, if any, guarantees in life. No one can predict the future, and no one can honestly promise you that everything will go as planned. That said, if you want a particular outcome or result, there are almost always things you can do to increase the odds of things going right. Exercising, eating well, and living a healthy lifestyle can significantly increase your chances of living longer, for example, but it is no guarantee that you actually will.

The same goes for any type of medical procedure, especially surgery. If you were about to undergo open-heart surgery, your doctor can give you a prognosis, can tell you how he or she thinks things should go, but they ethically cannot and should not promise you that everything will go perfectly.

But if the doctor you chose for your operation is one of the best in the world, is well-known for their skills and talents, and has successfully performed this kind of surgery thousands of times, you’ll feel a lot more confident about the likelihood of a good result.

Don’t Look for Guarantees – Look for the Best

At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we don’t offer guarantees regarding the outcome of hair restoration procedures. We can and do guarantee, however, that you will receive unmatched personal attention care from two of the world’s most acclaimed and recognized hair transplant surgeons; doctors whose work can be seen on the heads of thousands of satisfied patients in Florida and around the globe.

Drs. Bernard Nusbaum and Paul Rose developed and use an innovative and comprehensive approach for evaluating and treating patients with hair loss while providing the very latest in surgical procedures and techniques at our state-of-the-art facility. Both doctors are widely recognized and acclaimed leaders in the field of hair restoration surgery, developing the cutting-edge methods which have since become standard around the world. Each brings over twenty-five years of experience and professional expertise and have successfully performed tens of thousands of procedures.

Making the Right Choice in Surgeons Is Your Best Guarantee

Choosing the right hair restoration professional or hair transplant surgeon can be the best guarantee that you will be pleased with the outcome of your procedure. In South Florida and elsewhere, there is no shortage of doctors, clinics, or other companies that hold themselves out as being the solution to your hair loss problems. Make sure you make the right decision by knowing what to look for and what questions to ask.

When you arrange for an initial consultation at hair loss clinic, make sure you are meeting with a doctor, not simply someone referred to as a “consultant.” Then feel free to ask the physician some or all of these 15 questions to learn more about their experience, qualifications, and approach.  Once you have found the doctor who makes you feel comfortable and confident, they will recommend the hair restoration technique best suited for your specific needs and goals.

ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant Before & After

In 2012, the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami revolutionized surgical hair restoration in South Florida with the ARTAS® System by Restoration™ Robotics. Since then, ISHRS Golden Follicle Award winners Drs. Nusbaum and Rose have used this innovative, effective, and personalized technique to provide thousands of patients with robust, full, and natural-looking hair. In fact, the Hair Institute of Miami is #1 in the Southeast for number of successful ARTAS® performed.

Why do so many men and women come to us for this procedure? We’ll explain below, but in some ways the best explanation can’t be read – it can be seen. These before and after pictures of our satisfied patients speak volumes about the benefits of ARTAS and why you should consider calling us if you are ready to take action about your hair loss.

What is ARTAS®?

ARTAS® is a minimally invasive, state-of-the-art procedure that uses digital mapping and precision robotics to select and harvest hair for transplantation, a process known as follicular unit extraction (FUE). Typically, permanent hair from the back or side of the head will extracted for transplantation to thinning areas using the ARTAS® System’s image-guided robotics. Most of your hair is left in place so that the area retains its natural appearance.

Following extraction, our surgeons use the ARTAS® to create a completely personalized map of transplant sites, into which follicular units are expertly grafted. This transplanted hair will then grow naturally in its new location, just as it did before. The results can last a lifetime.

What are the benefits of the ARTAS® Procedure?

  • Minimally invasive and painless: it is an outpatient procedure performed in the doctor’s office and requires only a local anesthetic.
  • Greater precision, consistency, and accuracy.
  • Quick recovery with less post-op discomfort; you can usually go back to your daily activities after a day or two.
  • No linear scarring: any scarring is minimal and virtually undetectable. Wear your hair short, without exposing a long and linear scar. Transplanted hair grows in gradually, over a period of a year, reducing the chance that people will notice the procedure.
  • Improve past procedures: Using ARTAS®, linear scars from previous hair transplants are camouflaged to improve appearance.
  • Plan, track, and improve: With the ARTAS Hair Studio®, surgeons and patients gain invaluable insight to create a fully customized long-term hair restoration plan.

How is the ARTAS® procedure better than the old “Hair Plugs” people used to get?

Old fashioned “hair plugs” included the harvesting of large patches of hair follicles that resulted in an awkward and unnatural appearance once implanted. The ARTAS® System uses its computer-assisted robotic arm and digital mapping to pinpoint individual follicular units from the donor area for dissection. This process provides the doctor more control and precision in designing a natural looking hair growth pattern. Because the ARTAS System enables unmatched precision and accuracy, doctors can extract healthy robust grafts for optimal growth.

Picture Yourself With a Full Head of Hair

With the ARTAS Hair Studio®, our surgeons can show you 3-dimensional renderings of potential results, created from your personal photographs. You don’t need hypothetical pictures to see results, however. As noted above, these before and after photos of our patients show you the very real and very dramatic impact that the ARTAS® Procedure has had on people just like you.

Can a Hair Transplant Be Used to Create a New Hairline?

receding hairlineYour face is the first thing you see when you look in the mirror, and a receding hairline staring back at you may be the first and most visible sign that you are losing hair. The good news is that hair transplant techniques which are used to restore areas of thinning hair elsewhere on the scalp can also help restore your hairline to where you want it to be.

At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we are pleased to offer two highly refined approaches to surgical hairline restoration. Performed by Dr. Bernard Nusbaum and Dr. Paul Rose, two ISHRS Golden Follicle Award winning surgeons who lead the surgical team at Hair Transplant Institute Miami, the following techniques offer patients effective options for restoring a natural-looking hairline.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE/FIT) Using the ARTAS System

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE/FIT) is a minimally invasive method of transplanting individual hair follicles for natural-looking results. FUE/FIT involves harvesting using a circular needle called a “punch.” Follicular units are removed from the donor area with a 0.8-1-millimeter circular tool in a scattered pattern to eliminate the linear scar associated with traditional donor strip harvesting. Because scars are tiny and dot-like in appearance, patients who undergo an FUE hair transplant have the freedom to wear shorter hairstyles post-operation.

Dr. Rose was one of the originators of FUE/FIT and has been performing the procedure since 2004. Our approach utilizes 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. Dr. Nusbaum and Dr. Rose use the ARTAS system to digitally scan areas of the scalp, identifying hair in its natural groupings. Selected hair is then precisely removed, using the ARTAS system’s image-guided robotics. Most of your hair is left in place so that the area retains its natural appearance. The hair is then transplanted into thinning areas. This transplanted hair will then grow naturally on the hairline, just as it did before.

MOSAIC® Hair Restoration

At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we are always striving to improve and refine the effectiveness of our hair transplantation techniques while also working to enhance the comfort of our patients. This drive for innovation has made us leaders in our field, and has also led to our development of a novel advancement in addressing hair loss, including receding hairlines: Mosaic® Hair Restoration.

Drs. Rose and Nussbaum developed this approach after observing that follicular units naturally occur in an arrangement consisting of unique percentages of one, two, and three hair follicular units in different mixed configurations with unique inter-follicular distances –in other words: a unique pattern for each individual. The Mosaic procedure consists of designing the recipient area in this individualized manner, mimicking each patient’s unique follicular unit arrangement pattern. This approach ensures a personalized follicular pattern so each patient receives the most natural result.

In practice, our surgeons obtain several magnified images of the patient’s scalp in areas unaffected by the balding process. We analyze the images to tabulate the percentages of one, two or three hair follicular units and determine their topographical arrangement unique for that patient. This data is then used for creating a personalized, natural hairline.

ARTAS® Hair Transplant Robot in Miami

At the end of 2012, the Hair Transplant Institute became 1 of fewer than 20 hair restoration clinics nationwide to offer the ARTAS® robot for FUE procedures. Since that time, the new technology has received a warm welcome from the men and women who visit our clinic for hair loss consultation and treatment.

There are many reasons why patients—both men and women—love the new ARTAS® system. A few include:

  • Greater Precision: The ARTAS® calculates and re-calculates vital metrics for donor hair extraction with micron-level precision at up to 50 times each second. As a result, donor hair is extracted with maximum potential for survival and natural growth.
  • Improved Accuracy: With high-resolution imagery and a precision-based robotic arm, surgeons are able to locate and extract donor hairs with greater accuracy than ever before. This improves the survivability of follicular units during the procedure, and it keeps the donor area looking natural post-procedure.
  • Comfort: ARTAS® is minimally invasive, and the procedure involves less pain and discomfort than a trip to the dentist.
  • No Linear Scar: Since the ARTAS® utilizes FUE, donor hairs are extracted and transplanted without creating a linear donor scar. As a result, patients are free to wear short hair cuts without showing scars or other signs that a transplant has been performed.
  • Physician Assisted: During the procedure, a trained surgeon uses the robotic technology to assist in identifying and extracting donor hair. Following extraction, hair is expertly implanted by hand to restore areas of thinning or balding scalp. If the thought of a robot performing a procedure on your scalp seems scary, you may rest assured that you are always in the caring and highly skilled hands of an expert surgeon at our Institute.

Frequently Asked Questions About ARTAS® Hair Transplant

Frequently Asked Questions About ARTAS® Hair TransplantLast week, we made a special announcement that the ARTAS System for hair restoration will be available at the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami in just a few short weeks. We are very excited to be one of the very first practices in Florida to offer this exciting and revolutionary hair transplant technology. Never before have state of the art robotics and digital imaging technology been so seamlessly combined to augment the skill of a hair transplant surgeon, and the results are simply astounding.

Our Institute has created this Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) guide to further explain how the ARTAS System combines advanced robotics and high-res digital imaging with the exceptional skills of our transplant surgeons. For more information and appointment requests, readers are invited to call our institute directly at 1-877-443-9070.

How is hair transplantation with the ARTAS® System different?

The biggest difference is that the ARTAS System uses state of the art digital imaging and robotics to harvest follicular units. It is important to note that the procedure is still conducted under the control of a physician. The ARTAS System provides the physician with calculations of unparalleled accuracy. Things like hair position, angle, and other parameters are each carefully measured to achieve optimal harvesting results from the donor area.

Does the ARTAS System produce natural-looking results?

Yes. The ARTAS System targets hair follicles in a random fashion based on a series of digital calculations (as noted above). Hair follicles are then harvested without causing the donor area to lose its natural appearance.

Will my hair begin to grow immediately?

The growth phase for transplanted hair is naturally a long process. As with any hair transplant procedure, it takes time for transplanted hair follicles to develop their own blood supply. This is vital, as the blood carries oxygen and other nutrients that fuel natural growth. The timetable for seeing new hair growth is around 3 months after the procedure. Significant improvements in appearance are typical after 5-6 months. After 12 months, patients will begin to notice the natural “final results”.

Does the ARTAS System leave scars?

The ARTAS System leaves very minimal scars to the donor area, allowing patients to confidently wear their hair at short lengths. The ARTAS System is most similar to follicular unit transplant (FUT) procedures, during which a linear scar is never created. Instead, very small circular scars are created at the site from which each hair follicle is harvested. These circular scars are pinkish-red in color and usually never visible unless the patients shave their head entirely.

How are ARTAS results different from the old “Hair Plugs” people used to get?

Old fashioned “hair plugs” included the harvesting of large patches of hair follicles that resulted in an awkward and unnatural appearance once implanted. The ARTAS System uses its computer-assisted robotic arm and digital mapping to pinpoint individual follicular units from the donor area for dissection. This process provides the doctor more control and precision in designing a natural looking hair growth pattern. Because the ARTAS System enables unmatched precision and accuracy, doctors are able to extract healthy robust grafts for optimal growth.

How long will my hair transplant last? Is it permanent?

ARTAS System procedures are typically permanent. The transplanted hair may last a lifetime, as it is harvested from the back of the head and is not susceptible to the conditions that habitually cause male pattern baldness. For optimal results, patients must schedule a hair loss evaluation with an expert to determine the unique cause of their hair loss and develop an effective course of treatment.

How long do procedures with the ARTAS System take?

Hair transplant procedures with the ARTAS System may take 4-8 hours to complete, depending on specific goals and patient needs.

Do hair transplant procedures with the ARTAS System hurt?

Contrary to what many believe, patients report that a hair transplant procedure involves no more pain than a trip to the dentist. The same is the case with the ARTAS System. At the beginning of the procedure, the scalp is locally anesthetized until numb. Should you begin to feel any pain during the procedure, a physician will administer additional anesthetic to reduce any discomfort.

Will people know I have had a hair transplant procedure?

With the ARTAS Procedure, any scarring is minimal and virtually undetectable. Transplanted hair grows in gradually, over a period of a year, reducing the chance that people will notice the procedure.

Do I have to shave my head before the procedure?

No, patients do not need to shave their head prior to have a procedure performed with the ARTAS System. A short trim is necessary, however. This allows the physician to use the ARTAS System to accurately visualize, track, and harvest each follicular unit. For smaller procedures, patients may choose to trim only the harvest area that is needed to achieve desired results.
