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.

The ARTAS iX Robotic Hair Restoration System Upgrade in Detail

The ARTAS iX Robotic Hair Restoration System Upgrade in Detail

The award-winning hair transplant surgeons at the Miami Hair & Skin Institute take immense pride in their commitment to excellence in hair restoration. That commitment manifests itself not only in the skill and artistry that comes from decades of experience and thousands of successful procedures, but also in the use of the most advanced technology available to achieve the best possible results. 

Our leadership in pioneering hair restoration technology is perhaps best seen in our use of the revolutionary ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration System, which delivers unmatched precision in surgical hair transplantation. The surgeons at the Miami Hair & Skin Institute perform approximately 200 ARTAS procedures each year and are NUMBER ONE in the Eastern U.S. in the total number of hair restoration surgeries using ARTAS.

Now, ARTAS technology has taken another leap forward with the introduction of the ARTAS iX™ system. This game-changing technology dramatically enhances the patient experience and provides truly impressive, natural-looking results.

What Makes ARTAS iX Different?

What distinguishes ARTAS iX from other hair restoration solutions is its use of machine-based vision, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to provide precise, minimally-invasive, repeatable harvesting and implantation functionality in one compact system. It is the first and only physician-assisted system that can dissect and assist in the harvesting of follicular units directly from the scalp, create recipient implant sites using proprietary algorithms, and implant the hair follicles into the designated locations.

The ARTAS iX system uses a 3D-camera stereoscopic vision system with improved 44-micron resolution and a 7-axis robot arm to deliver unmatched procedural analysis, precision, repeatability, and efficiency.

How is ARTAS iX Used in Hair Transplant Surgery?

When using the ARTAS iX system to perform a follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure, the surgeon will load 25 harvested grafts at a time into a rectangular cartridge which he or she will then insert into the robotic arm. The arm will then implant the grafts directly into the scalp.

A significant advantage of using these cartridges is that it facilitates gentle handling of the fragile grafts, reducing the risk of graft injury. In a manual graft implant, the surgeon will typically grasp the follicles by the bulb just below the sebaceous glands and then bring those follicles into the incision, risking considerable follicle damage.

The ARTAS iX system holds grafts at the epidermal end and then gently places them into the cartridge. This eliminates unnecessary and preventable injury to the growth of the transplanted hair by avoiding contact with the lower and mid-portions of the follicles.

The surgeon then uses the ARTAS iX to digitally create a recipient site plan that communicates directly with the robot, programming the specific size, distribution, density, direction, and angle of the sites for the follicular unit grafts. The ARTAS iX’s vision system identifies where the grafts will be placed and leads the robotic arm into position. Once the system automatically orients itself over the patient’s recipient area, implantation begins. The ARTAS iX can implant up to 500 grafts per hour, making it as efficient as it is precise.

We are proud to offer our patients the benefits of ARTAS iX technology and are among the first clinics in the United States to do so. This is just the latest way that the Miami Hair & Skin Institute continues to lead the way in hair restoration. Our Drs. Nusbaum and Rose are internationally acclaimed hair restoration surgeons with more than 40 years of combined experience.

How To Best Prepare for a Hair Transplant

Top 3 Topical Finasteride Myths

Top 3 Topical Finasteride MythsFinasteride, commonly known as Propecia® and Proscar®, is a widely used medication for the treatment of hair loss in men. It does a great job at maintaining existing hair and re-growing hair in a large percentage of guys dealing with androgenetic alopecia and is one of many non-surgical hair restoration treatments we offer at the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami.

What is Finasteride?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved finasteride as an oral medication over 20 years ago. Its effectiveness is not in dispute: 83% of men studied were able to retain their initial follicle count, while 64% experienced re-growth after two years.

Finasteride gets these results by inhibiting the body’s production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a naturally occurring derivative of testosterone which helps with sexual development in males during fetal development and puberty. The problem is that DHT has been linked to hair loss, so reducing DHT levels can be the key to stopping hair loss in men.

In recent years the drug was introduced in a topical form, much like Rogaine. Since finasteride as a topical treatment is of fairly recent origin, many patients who are exploring hair loss treatment options hear conflicting reports or misinformation about the medication’s use in this form.

We’d like to clear up some of the most common topical finasteride myths so you can make a more informed decision about whether or not to consider this form of the drug in your efforts to combat hair loss. Of course, you should always consult with an experienced hair loss physician before making any decisions about how to proceed (and you’ll need to if you want finasteride in any form since it is prescription only).

Here are the top three finasteride myths we hear floating around:

Topical Finasteride is FDA Approved

As noted, oral finasteride was approved by the FDA for the treatment of hair loss over two decades ago. But the FDA has yet to approve the drug in topical form for this purpose, primarily because of a lack of data not because of any specific concerns about its safety. That said, finasteride’s effectiveness as a topical solution is being widely studied, and there are reports that the Swiss pharmaceutical company Polichem is working towards obtaining FDA approval in 2020.

Even though the FDA has yet to approve topical finasteride for the treatment of hair loss, it is still available in the U.S. for that purpose as an “off-label” prescription.

Topical Finasteride Has No Side Effects

DHT does much more than contribute to hair loss, which means that reducing DHT levels can have unwanted side effects. Since DHT plays a crucial role in male sexual development and mood regulation, reducing the amount of it in the body can impact these aspects of a man’s life in unwanted ways and cause:

Impotence
Lower sex drive
Difficulty achieving orgasm
Abnormal ejaculation
Gynecomastia (male breast development)
Depression

The good news is that that these side effects only appear in a small minority of men (about one out of every hundred) who take finasteride orally and if any issues do arise with sexual functioning, they are almost always temporary and will return to normal after discontinuing the drug.

But some have claimed that applying finasteride as a topical treatment gets rid of these risks. While this is untrue, it is likely that the possibility of side effects from the topical application will be less than oral ingestion due to the way the body absorbs the drug.

Topical Finasteride Can Actually Cause Hair Loss

Some men using finasteride report an increase in shedding soon after they begin using it, making them worry that the drug is doing more harm than good. The reality is that this mild shedding is normal and necessary for new hair to grow. Finasteride actively stops the current hair growth cycle and begins a new one. Any hair that is in mid-cycle will fall out and be replaced by healthier, stronger hair.

As with any medication, you should discuss with your hair loss physician whether DHT blockers or other pharmaceutical treatments offer a viable and effective option for addressing your hair loss issues.

Hair Transplants During Your 20’s

Hair Transplants During Your 20’s

Hair Transplants During Your 20’sHair loss can become a concern no matter what your age. Many people may first notice a receding hairline or thinning hair in their late teens and early 20s. Living with noticeable hair loss at a relatively early age can be particularly traumatic, causing young people to feel old before their time.

If you are in your 20s and are worried about hair loss, you may be exploring ways to address the problem, including a surgical hair transplant. Medication, lifestyle changes, and other non-invasive treatments can be effective at combating hair loss in younger adults. But whether a transplant is advisable depends on the reasons behind the hair loss, and it may, in fact, be a less desirable option that it would be if they had a few more years under their belt.

Hair Loss Patterns May Not Be Known

There are a few reasons hair transplants for those in their 20s present unique issues. The primary reason for caution is because it may be difficult at that stage to know how the hair loss pattern will progress and ultimately manifest itself.

The hair loss process may not be complete at this stage. While a transplant might be effective at addressing existing problem areas, the possibility that hair loss may become an issue elsewhere can result in an “island” of transplanted hair bordered by new thinning or balding areas. Similarly, a transplant focused on lowering the hairline can become awkward and unnatural in appearance if the hair above the transplant area begins to thin or fall out.

You Get What You Pay For

Another issue faced by young adults that may make a transplant unadvisable is less physical and more financial. Always remember that hair transplant surgery is, in fact, surgery. That means only a highly trained, supremely skilled, and extremely experienced hair transplant physician should perform your procedure.

Unfortunately, there are plenty of clinics or supposed hair loss specialists who may offer “cut-rate” prices reflective of the quality of work they perform. Young people may not yet have the financial resources for a hair transplant done right. Waiting until you can have your surgery performed by a top-notch surgeon may be worth more than subjecting yourself to a substandard operation which will leave you disappointed or needing corrective surgery in the future.

Take the First Step: Schedule a Consultation With the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami Today

All of that said, hair transplant surgery may be a viable option for someone still in their 20s if the hair loss is particularly advanced. The only way to know which hair loss treatment is best for your individual situation is to schedule an evaluation with a hair loss physician who can diagnose the cause and progression of your hair loss and work with you to develop the optimal treatment plan.

ARTAS System

Manual FUE vs ARTAS FUE Hair Transplant

ARTAS SystemHair transplant surgery is both an art and a science. It combines the surgeon’s medical knowledge with meticulous attention to detail and the skill and vision required to create a full, youthful-looking head of hair. But even the most talented surgeons can further perfect their work by taking advantage of advancements in technology which can help them produce even better results.

At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we take pride in combining technique and technology. Our award-winning surgeons are renowned for their mastery in the field of hair restoration. But they are also committed to staying at the cutting edge of technological innovation. That is why the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedures we perform seamlessly interweave computer-guided extraction with our surgeons’ precision in transplanting follicles to the donor area.

Follicular Unit Extraction Using the ARTAS System

Follicular Unit Extraction is a minimally invasive method of transplanting individual hair follicles for natural-looking results. FUE 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.

Our approach utilizes the image-guided robotics of the ARTAS system to extract the follicles to be transplanted. Under the control of your surgeon, the ARTAS system’s robotic arm and sophisticated digital imaging facilitate the harvesting of follicular units. It continuously re-calculates hair position, angle, and other parameters to track each follicular unit. This leads to optimal harvest results and robust and viable grafts.

The ARTAS technology targets follicular units in a random fashion to ensure the donor areas retain their natural appearance. The selected hair is then precisely removed while most of your hair is left in place so that the area retains its natural appearance.

Transplanting Follicles With Skill and Precision

While we use the ARTAS system to extract follicles, we rely on the skill of our surgeons to carefully and meticulously transplant the follicles to the donor area. We have found that manually transplanting follicles to the recipient area provides a more aesthetically pleasing result while also encouraging the growth of the hair once transplanted.

That is why the skills, talents, and experience of your hair transplant surgeon should be the most important factors you consider when evaluating your hair restoration options.  Technology such ARTAS has no doubt made hair transplant surgery more effective and precise, but it is the surgeon that can make all the difference between exceptional results and a disappointing outcome.

That is also why so many men and women looking to do something about their hair loss turn to the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami. Drs. Nusbaum and Rose are internationally acclaimed hair restoration surgeons with more than 40 years combined experience. Both Drs. Nusbaum and Rose are actively engaged in hair loss research and lecture widely. To receive a personalized evaluation and treatment plan, contact us online or call or office directly at 305-925-0222.

Hair Transplant Gets Celebrity Endorsement from Wes Welker

The Hair Restoration Journey Series: What to Expect on Surgery Day

Hair Transplant Gets Celebrity Endorsement from Wes WelkerThe big day is here. You wake up, feeling a lot of excitement and a maybe a little bit of nerves about what lies ahead. Today is the day of your hair transplant surgery, and the first day of the rest of your life with a head of hair on its way to the full, natural, and youthful look you once had.

You’ve had the consultations, discussed the best approach with your hair restoration physician, taken the steps he or she advised to get your ready for your surgery and now it’s time to head to the clinic. What can you expect on this important day in your hair restoration journey?

First things first: get up and have a healthy, light breakfast unless instructed otherwise. While you can drive yourself to the clinic, you will need to arrange for a ride home because of the light sedation you will be under during the procedure. As such, it may be easier for a friend or family member to give you a lift to the clinic as well.

When you arrive, the staff should do everything they can to make you feel you comfortable and at ease. You will meet with your surgeon who will discuss with you what exactly will take place during your procedure, even if they have done so previously. Feel free to ask your doctor any questions you may have. Your surgeon is committed to making your hair restoration surgery as successful as possible, and that includes keeping you informed as to what is about to occur.

You will then settle in to your surgery suite, which is designed to be a welcoming and relaxed rather than cold and sterile environment. You will experience minimal, if any pain during the procedure. A technician will massage your scalp prior to administering local anesthesia, like the kind a dentist uses. The massaging creates a vibration in the skin that works in combination with the anesthesia to reduce any discomfort. You will also be given a mild sedative at the beginning of the session to minimize any anxiety you may be feeling.

During the procedure, you can either rest, listen to music, or watch movies or TV on your phone, tablet or other device. Your procedure will likely take several hours; the exact duration of your surgery will depend on the number of grafts being transplanted. For a 2000 graft case, the average time is about 6 hours.

After your surgery, your physician will give you detailed aftercare instructions to help you heal and get you back to your routine as quickly as possible, which is often the very next day. Make sure you get clarification on any instructions which may be unclear to you.

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 the procedure. We welcome drivers to wait in our reception area, or they may visit the Village of Merrick Park, located just across the street from our Institute.

When you return home that evening, you can sleep well knowing that you have taken a huge step to improving your appearance, confidence, and well-being.

Dr.-Rose-Appointed-to-ISHRS-Ad-Hoc-Committee-on-FUE-Issues

Dr. Paul Rose Discusses FUE Best Practices in ISHRS Forum

Dr.-Rose-Appointed-to-ISHRS-Ad-Hoc-Committee-on-FUE-IssuesIn the November/December 2016 edition of the Hair Transplant Forum International, Dr. Paul Rose of the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami authored an essay reviewing Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) – a minimally invasive method of transplanting individual hair follicles for natural-looking results. As one of the originators of the FUE procedure, Dr. Rose holds incomparable experience when it comes to method and accuracy.

What is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?

FUE 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’s FUE Analysis

Click here for the full PDF article from ISHRS

In his article, Dr. Rose discusses FUE and the potential for wounding and thinning at the donor site when a large portion (40 to 50 percent) of follicles are extracted at once. Ideally, physicians harvest one out of every seven units to maintain density. Based on this pattern, the average scalp containing 13,000 to 16,000 units would only be 14 percent harvested, or 1,800 to 2,200 grafts total. He points out that harvesting large quantities of follicular units makes transplants more apparent – the opposite intention behind the procedure itself. It’s safe to assume that surgeons reporting as many as 6,000 FUE grafts are creating areas of baldness greater than 6mm2 – eliminating the possibility for shorter haircuts without obvious thinning. In addition, many patients lack three to four hair units, raising the risk for obvious thinning at the donor site when too many units are removed.

Dr. Rose recommends that patients should be advised of the potential for this thinning at the donor site prior to surgery. Follicular Isolation Technique (FIT) uses partial follicular unit removal to curtail further thinning. Finally, Dr. Rose recommends micro-pigmentation to disguise thinning at the donor site. In an ideal world, devices that decrease wound size could minimize donor wound concerns.

At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we utilize the ARTAS® physician-guided machine – the most advanced method of harvesting hair from the back of the head. In addition, our Mosaic® hair restoration technique, developed by Dr. Rose and Dr. Nusbaum, mimics personalized follicular patterns for optimal results.

Moving Toward Scarless Hair Transplant

Moving Toward Scarless Hair TransplantMost patients fear that a bad scar will ruin a good hair transplant. Although 100 percent scar-free hair transplants are not available with even the most advanced technologies, some advanced options provide minimal, practically indiscernible scarring.

For patients who wish to conceal scars from hair restoration surgery, consider the following hair loss treatment options.

Investigate FUE with ARTAS

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) removes follicular units from a donor area using a small circular needle called a “punch.” The tiny size of the needle creates “dot-like” scars instead of one, more obvious line across the donor area commonly seen in strip removal. FUE allows individuals to wear hair shorter without visible scars. At Miami Hair, we incorporate the ARTAS physician-guided robotic system for FUE, the most advanced method in today’s market. Dr. Rose was one of the initial physicians to implement FUE in his hair restoration surgeries and has been using the procedure since 2004.

Incorporate laser therapy

Dr. Nusbaum is an ISHRS Golden Follicle Award winning surgeon who recommends low-level laser therapy (LLLT) products, including the Capillus272™ Pro, to his patients. Hair transplant surgery harvests donor hair from the back or sides of the head, which is then moved to the areas of the scalp with dominant hair loss. However, the number of follicles available for donation are limited. Therefore, he recommends LLLT as an added, at-home therapy for optimal post-transplant results.

“When you have a hair transplant, it is equally important to put the brakes on hair loss,” said Dr. Nusbuam. “We recommend a complement to hair transplant surgery, and finasteride, minoxidil as well as laser therapy with Capillus products are an excellent option. These treatments can be used singly, or in combination.”

Learn about closure techniques

Another technique that lessens the look and visibility of scars is the closure technique, which is used to restore the donor site back to its original state. This process typically follows micrograft hair transplants. Dr. Rose developed the ledge trichophytic closure technique as a way of disguising the donor area scar by directing individual hairs to grow through the scar site, hiding the scar from plain view.

Choose an experienced surgeon

The Hair Institute of Miami is the only clinic in the world with two ISHRS Golden Follicle Award-winning surgeons on staff. Both Dr. Rose and Dr. Nusbaum are equipped with the experience, track record, research and overall know-how to create natural-looking results. Dr. Rose, M.D., J.D., has over 20 years of experience in hair restoration surgery and is recognized as an international leader in seamless hair transplants. Dr. Nusbaum, M.D., has performed over 10,000 hair transplants in the last two decades, and holds a position as a Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology.

When Superfoods Aren’t Enough

A balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants has been proven to naturally improve the appearance of hair, skin, and nails. For some individuals, however, eating well is not enough. Whether predisposed to hereditary (genetic) hair loss or suffering from stress-induced telogen effluvium, the following treatment options are available to help men and women put an end to excessive thinning and balding.

Minoxidil

Minoxidil is a topical hair loss foam that both men and women may use. When applied directly to the scalp, minoxidil has been shown in clinical studies to prevent the progression of hair loss. Patients are cautioned, however, that hair loss will begin again when minoxidil use is discontinued. This treatment is available over-the-counter under the popular brand, Rogaine®.

Laser Hair Restoration

Laser hair restoration is a nonsurgical hair loss treatment that has enjoyed ever-increasing popularity over the past 3 years. Treatment consists of exposure to cool laser light to improve blood circulation and hair follicle health, thus promoting natural hair growth. We are pleased to offer laser hair restoration with the Capillus272™ Pro, a FDA cleared laser cap that can be worn in the comfort of your own home for fast results.

Hair Transplant Surgery

Hair transplant surgery is a third option for men and women who suffer with hair loss. At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we offer two highly refined approaches to hair transplant surgery.

Strip Procedures. A thin linear strip of donor follicles (hair) is removed from the side or rear of the scalp, separated, and carefully transplanted to the thinning/balding area. Using a special closure technique, Miami Hair surgeon, Dr. Paul Rose, expertly redirects existing hairs to grow through and around the extraction area to effectively mask the signs of scarring. Learn more about strip procedures here.

ARTAS® Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). We are pleased to offer procedures with the revolutionary ARTAS® system, a minimally invasive, state-of-the-art technology that uses digital mapping and robotics precision to select and harvest hair for transplantation (FUE).
