How Do Hair Restoration Techniques Differ?

How do different hair restoration techniques work?When implementing hair restoration surgery, physicians will opt for techniques that provide the most natural, optimal results. In the modern era of hair loss restoration, multiple methods exist to help patients achieve their aesthetic hair goals.

Mosaic Hair Restoration

Often, hair restoration surgeons opt for predetermined zones composed of one, two or three hair follicles to extract. But, follicular units contain varying numbers of hairs, and certainly aren’t limited to the scalp alone. Follicular units actually have a mixed configuration. No two patients have exactly similar hair follicle patterns, which is why Mosaic Hair Restoration allows for a more personalized approach. Mosaic Hair Restoration replicates the unique follicular unit arrangement pattern at the recipient area, rather than applying a one-size-fits-all approach. In order to best carry out the process, surgeons at the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami take hair from multiple donor sites and analyze the arrangements to determine the best implantation pattern for each patient.

Follicular Isolation Technique

Follicular Isolation Technique (FIT), also called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is another popular process. Because hairs grow in follicular units, consisting of one to four hair follicles each, FIT involves removing a group of follicles (in one unit) with a one millimeter punch device. The donor hairs are isolated with a head positioning device developed by Dr. Rose. With FIT, linear scars aren’t readily visible and the donor area tends to heal faster as compared to other surgical methods. This allows individuals to wear shorter hairstyles without worrying about unconcealed scars. FIT is best on young men who don’t require many grafts who also plan to wear short hairstyles in the future. It’s also a great practice for patients with limited donor areas that aren’t good candidates for further strip harvesting.

Follicular Unit Grafting

Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG) transfers entire follicular units from the permanent donor zone on the back of the scalp to the balding areas. This is referred to as single strip harvesting and requires donor tissue to be removed in one piece. FUG keeps follicular units intact and prevents damage to the individual hair follicles for increased growth. The LEDGE closure technique developed by Dr. Rose is a virtually non-scarring method to minimize donor strip site visibility. It can be used in Follicular Unit Grafting procedures with a single layer closure to minimizes tissue trauma.

Microscopic Dissection

Microscopic Dissection involves donor tissue via single-strip harvesting being separated into individual follicular units with a stereo-microscope. The bald skin surrounding each follicular unit is removed to allow for a tiny graft. Compared to non-microscopic techniques, this process increases the number of follicular units and hair as much as 25 percent. The biggest benefit with microscopic dissection is small recipient sites, as the bald tissue is removed and doesn’t need to be transplanted unnecessarily.

Stem Cells and Hair Loss

A Closer Look at Stem Cell Therapy for Hair Loss

Stem Cells and Hair LossDr. Paul Rose and Dr. Bernard Nusbaum are proud to offer a fresh, innovative and effective approach to hair loss – stem cell hair growth. While a fairly new procedure, stem cell therapy for hair loss is safe and successful. Plus, you can use this treatment in conjunction with transplant surgery, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, topical treatments such as Rogaine and low level laser therapy (LLLT) treatments.

What are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are the building blocks of the body; they provide instruction on how to construct new cells. The fatty tissue on the body contains a high number of stem cells applicable to hair loss treatment.

The stem cell hair loss treatment is a simple outpatient procedure with local anesthesia and a mild oral sedative. Our physicians perform a small liposuction procedure on the patient, typically on the belly or love handles for optimal results. From there, the fat is processed to isolate and concentrate stem cells. Then, our physicians inject the stem cells directly into the scalp.

The total time for the procedure depends on the individual, but extraction takes about 20 minutes total. While doctors extract stem cells from the fat, patients can wait comfortably in private rooms.

After the procedure, patients must have a family member or friend give them a ride home since driving on the sedative is illegal. You can expect to return to your normal routine the following day.

Can Stem Cells Spur Hair Growth?

In short, stem cells have been shown to assist hair growth, but clinical research is still being conducted. Because the procedure is so new, researchers are unsure of whether the hair will continue to grow or if re-treatment is necessary.

Dr. Nusbaum Answers Hair Transplant FAQs

Dr. Nusbaum Answers Hair Transplant FAQsDr. Bernard Nusbaum is lead surgeon here at the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami. With over 20 years practicing and more than 10,000 hair transplants in the books, Dr. Nusbaum has seen hair restoration surgery evolve into the incredibly precise and painless procedure it is today. Among the most popular options for men and women looking for surgical hair restoration is traditional “strip” donor procedure, as well as follicular unit extraction (FUE) transplantation.

In the video below, Dr. Nusbaum explains the differences between various popular hair transplant techniques. The video begins with the strip donor approach, a procedure that has undeservedly received a “bad name” due to misleading advertising campaigns of recent years.

Notes on Strip Donor Hair Transplant

Strip donor transplant entails surgically removing a ribbon, narrow but long, from the scalp of the donor area. Afterward, the donor area is stitched closed, forming a linear scar that might be visible when hair is cut very short. Following extraction, the donor strip is then carefully dissected into individual follicular units before finally being transplanted, by hand.

Unfortunately, scars from these “strip” procedures have received a bad name. Some adults see patients who have an unsightly post-operative scar when wearing their hair very short. Others see advertisements that shed a negative light on the strip procedure in general.

“It is unfortunate that occurs, because that is not our result from linear [strip donor] procedures,” explains Dr. Nusbaum. “We utilize a closure technique, which is very special. It has been developed by Dr. Paul Rose, our surgeon, and works beautifully in his hands.”

Termed the Trichophytic Ledge Closure Technique, this expert touch creates a very fine scar with donor hairs growing through it, rendering it nearly invisible to the naked eye.

“Sometimes, not even a hairstylist who combs up the hair can detect where the scar is.”

How Thyroid Disease May Cause Hair Loss

How Thyroid Disease May Cause Hair LossHair health, fullness, and sheen are often indicators of the body’s internal wellness. Many diseases, conditions, and subsequent treatments trigger hair loss or dull, breaking strands. Two of those conditions are hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism. While they are complete opposite in terms of their issues – one is an overproduction while the other is an underproduction of hormones – they share a common symptom: hair loss.

If you suffer from a thyroid disorder and are currently experiencing hair loss or balding, knowing why and the steps you can take to combat this unfortunate side effect is important.

What is the thyroid?

The thyroid is a gland that releases a steady amount of hormones in the body. It’s pertinent to proper metabolic functions, growth, and development. The thyroid is located just below your voice box on the front of your neck. It is shaped somewhat like a butterfly with two lobes on each side connected in the center by a thin tissue. The thyroid stores hormones in small droplets within it’s vesicles, or follicles.

What does it do?

The thyroid is responsible for the production of three key hormones: T3 (also known as triiodothyronine), T4 (also known as Tetreaiodothyronine), and Calcitonin. T3 and T4 are both made up mainly of iodine.

Being the main component of two thyroid hormones, the thyroid requires iodine to function properly. Usually, the body absorbs iodine through the intestine and enters the blood stream. Then, it’s transferred to the thyroid gland to build T3 and T4. The body cannot produce iodine on it’s own since it’s a trace element.

One reason for an underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism, is a lack of iodine. Other potential causes are genetics, age, Hasimoto’s thyroiditis, and various medications. Under-activity usually develops over time, rendering it hard to notice. The symptoms are weight gain, slowed metabolism, loss of energy, tiredness, difficulty concentrating, slow pulse, constipation, and hair loss. Many patients with an underactive thyroid assume their symptoms are part of the aging process, rather than a serious hormonal condition.

Hyperthyroidism, on the other hand, occurs from an overproduction of hormones in the thyroid gland. Energy metabolism speeds up and overactive thyroids lead to hot flashes, trembling, insomnia, racing heart, fatigue, diarrhea, weight loss, and hair loss.

Autoimmune diseases, issues with the thyroid axis, or autonomy from the pituitary gland are the three main causes of an overactive thyroid. The pituitary gland is responsible for regulating the amount of thyroid hormone produced, and a lack of communication between the two can cause overproduction.

Why does a dysfunctional thyroid lead to hair loss?

Both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can cause hair loss. First, overactive thyroids sometimes lead to an increased development of DHT. DHT influences the development of sexual organs and secondary sexual characteristics, including physical appearance. But too much DHT can cause hair follicle shrinkage or elimination, resulting in shedding or thinning hair. Therefore, when an overactive thyroid impairs the production of DHT from testosterone, balding occurs.

For patients currently prescribed medication for an underactive thyroid, it’s important to note the side effects. One of the most common treatments is levothyroxine sodium, which also goes by the brand names Synthroid, Levoxyl, Levothroid, and Unithroid. Sythroid specifically has been shown to cause long-term hair loss in patients.

How to treat thyroid-related hair loss

Whether you’re suffering from hair loss due to a hormonal imbalance from hypothyroidism or your thyroid medication is causing your hair loss, you have options for treatment.

First, many individuals take additional medication to offset the hair loss from their current thyroid medication. Results vary since medication affects every individual differently, but make sure to consult your physician prior to adding or subtracting from your current regimen.

Hair transplant surgery is another treatment option known to deliver consistent results. Given the advances in hair transplants, such as the Follicular Isolation Technique (FIT) developed by Dr. Paul Rose, transplants are more naturally looking than ever. Using FIT, Dr. Rose extracts individual follicles from donor areas and moves them to balding areas with little scarring. Follicular Unit Transplantations (FUT) is a more traditional approach offered by many restoration experts, including the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami.

Many individuals aren’t candidates for additional medication or hair transplant surgery after suffering from thyroid-related hair loss. Low-level laser therapy, or LLLT, uses safe lasers to stimulate hair follicles. At-home laser caps can be worn underneath virtually any hat or covering.

How to Prevent Men’s Hair Loss

It’s a condition that affects more than two-thirds of men: male pattern baldness. Men often notice the thinning around their hairline after the age of 35, but don’t exactly understand what’s causing this decrease in volume.

Although everyone is unique, most men’s hair loss troubles stem from a similar problem. Hormones shift as men age, allowing hair follicles to minimize and therefore produce new hair at a slower rate. Over time, the follicles shrink to a point where no more hair is produced and baldness becomes apparent.

Read on to understand what you can do to slow down hair loss, or alternatively, reverse balding.

Take Care of Yourself

It’s no secret that your physical appearance is a reflection of your internal health. Think about when you fail to get a full night’s sleep – your eyes appear dark and droopy, your skin looks dull, and your overall energetic zeal is missing. Healthy hair is an indication that you’re receiving the right nutrients, including proteins, biotin, zinc, and iron, while maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle. Sometimes, hair loss is attributed to stress. In these cases, many patients are able to stop their hair loss by practicing daily stress management techniques and changing their diets to include more wholesome, organic ingredients full of vitamins and nutrients.

Recognize Hair Loss Symptoms

Hair loss is an emotional issue. It’s not uncommon for men to wait until their appearance starts to suffer, or emotionally agonize, to consult a doctor regarding hair restoration treatment options. Waiting until the last minute can actually decrease your chances of success. If you’re concerned about the thinning of your hair, consider a microscopic exam. Physicians diagnose the condition of your hair and the stage of your hair loss. From there, it’s easier to determine the best, most promising treatment route.

Rejuvenate Your Scalp

Did you know that you can stimulate your hair follicles to enter the regrowth stage through phototherapy? Also known as low-level laser therapy, or LLLT, using lasers to promote a full head of hair is a new, FDA-approved method. LLLT is available through laser combs, cap inserts, or in-office domes. The Capillus272™ laser cap is one of the only products on the market that you can wear for just 30 minutes, twice a day, to see results. And you don’t have to sacrifice style for treatment. Simply insert the device into your favorite hat and go about your daily routine. This treatment can be used alongside of other topical prescriptions, shampoos, and hair restoration surgeries.

If you’re past the stages of prevention…

Once you’ve already been diagnosed with male pattern baldness, reversal requires more than a balanced diet and a good night’s rest. In fact, it may even be too pronounced for effective phototherapy caps, a rejuvenated spirit, healthy nutrition, topical treatments such as Rogaine, or prescriptions like Propecia.

That’s where Miami Hair transplant surgery can help. Male pattern baldness affects only certain parts of the scalp, leaving the sides and back of the head relatively unscathed. Using these healthy follicles, Miami hair transplant surgeons Drs. Nusbaum and Rose can successfully and seamlessly restore areas of balding scalp with your own, natural hair.

Treat Hair Loss Today

If you’ve exhausted all the prior options and prefer a permanent, proven technique with natural results, hair transplants are your best bet. With today’s technology and innovative grafting techniques, the “hair plug” look is no longer an issue. In fact, recent hair transplant advancements, like the patented Mosaic® Hair Restoration procedure, enable victims of hair loss to restore their original look without noticeable scarring.

Contact Miami Hair to schedule a consultation for our experienced surgeons to determine your stage of hair loss. Then, we will decide the best way to treat your individual condition effectively.

Hair Loss Advice from Our Miami Surgeons

Unfortunately, misleading information on hair loss and restoration is common. However, you can aptly inform yourself – whether you or a love one is suffering from patterned baldness or stress-related hair loss.

Here are some of the top hair loss related questions, and our experts’ advice on each.

Common Questions About Losing Hair

Do Baseball Caps Cause Hair Loss?

Contrary to popular belief, hair follicles don’t require direct access to fresh air in order to “breathe.” Actually, follicles receive oxygen from the blood stream. You’re safe to wear a baseball cap or any other hair covering, whether or not you’re already suffering from baldness.

If My Mother’s Side Suffers Hair Loss, Will I?

Not exactly. Inheritance from your maternal grandfather is slightly stronger, but not a direct indictor of your potential hair loss condition. Balding can actually stem from the father’s side as well.

What is Rogaine®?

When it first came on the market, Rogaine was used to regular blood pressure. Currently, it’s primarily intended for hair growth. About a third of men that use Rogaine see results, which makes it a great option for hair loss patients who prefer a cost-effective, topical product over a surgical, permanent procedure. Extra strength Rogaine starts working in about 8 weeks of treatment while the original Rogaine starts working after about 4 months of use. The product is applied on the scalp twice a day and requires continued use to maintain regrowth side effects. Once use has discontinued, hair loss will begin again.

How is it Different from Propecia®?

Propecia differs from Rogaine because of the way it interacts with your body’s hormones. Finasteride, the active ingredient in Propecia, blocks the production of DHT, which is the hormone related to men’s hair loss. It’s twice the price of Rogaine at $60 per month. However, patients looking for a budget-friendly alternative with the same efficacy can speak to their dermatologist regarding generic finasteride. It’s five times a regular dose of Propecia (which comes in 1-milligram pills), but can be divided with a pill cutter. Since Rogaine is a topical treatment and Propecia is consumed orally, these two can be taken simultaneously for accelerated results.

 

Keep in mind that women are not candidates for Propecia prescriptions. If you or a loved one is pregnant, be extra careful when handling Propecia as the crushed tablets can cause abnormalities in male fetus’ sex organs. Since unbroken tablets are coated, they are harmless for handling but should be stored safely away to avoid mishaps. If you are using the generic version of Propecia and have a pill cutter to split into 1-milligram doses, do not share the same pill cutter with any women who are or who may become pregnant.

Am I Too Young to Use Hair Loss Treatments?

As long as you are 18 and older, the FDA approves of your use of Propecia. In fact, the sooner the better, since it’s best used as a preventative measure versus a reversal treatment method. Keep in mind that Propecia has been shown to cause erectile dysfunction in some patients. For the small amount of patients using Propecia that do experience sexual problems, the problem is reversed after dosage is discontinued. Generic Propecia is actually used as a treatment for prostate cancer and can diminish odds of development by about 25 percent.

Can I Use a Shampoo or Conditioner to Reverse Hair Loss?

In short, shampoos and conditioners do not reverse hair loss or lead to restoration. While they help increase your hair’s overall volume, everyday washes and creams without the ingredients minoxidil or finasteride will not stimulate regrowth. However, there’s no harm in incorporating thickening washes and crème rinses into your everyday routine on top of your hair loss treatment method.

If you’re interested in learning how to use Rogaine or inquiring about the side effects of Propecia, or if you’d like to consult a physician about a more advanced level of treatment, contact Miami Hair surgeons Dr. Nusbaum and Dr. Rose at 305-448-9100.

What Should You Do When You Notice Hair on Your Pillow?

Everyday hair loss is completely normal. In fact, the American Academy of Dermatology says the average person loses anywhere between 50 and 100 strands each day. That may seem like a significant amount, but given the average human head has about 100,000 hair follicles, and each follicle is capable of growing about 20 hairs in a lifetime, 100 strands seems minimal in comparison.

But what about when you wake up in the morning and you see more hair than the average amount? And then you notice a general, overall thinning around your part while styling or even patches of missing hair? Don’t immediately panic, but ask yourself the following questions to determine if you’re a good candidate for hair growth therapy or hair restoration.

Have You Been Stressed Recently?

Telogen effluvium, or stress-related hair loss, usually occurs after a trauma that shocks hair follicles to stop producing new hairs. This type of hair loss is named after the final phase of hair growth, the telogen phase, where the hair follicle remains inactive until the regrowth process begins and pushes out the existing hair. Unfortunately for those suffering from stress-related hair loss, the follicle remains inactive because it never cycles back to the first stage (anagen phase) to spark growth.

Potential triggers of telogen effluvium include the following:

  • Physical injury
  • Emotional stress, including a death or lay-off
  • Severe illness
  • Rapid weight loss or change in diet
  • Childbirth and menopause
  • Hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism
  • Some medications
  • Surgery

Is Your Part Visibly Wider?

Women with long hair who part down the side or center might start to notice a wider part as they age. If you can see more scalp than usual while styling your hair, it’s likely you’re experiencing telogen effluvium hair loss.

Because women aren’t always candidates for hair transplant surgery, non-surgical hair restoration with the is an option. The Capillus272 revitalizes hair follicles to create a thicker head of hair without invasive surgery. Since it’s a mobile cap, the device can be used at home or while running errands without anyone noticing.

Do You Notice Pattern Baldness?

Male pattern baldness affects more than two-thirds of men and is caused by hormonal changes. Luckily, however, not all of the hair falls out. Most often times, a strip of hair around the nape of the neck remains – and can be optimized for transplant procedures.

Men may be hesitant to undergo a hair transplant for fear of a fake, “pluggy” look. At our clinic, lead surgeons Drs. Nusbaum and Rose recognize that follicular patterns vary depending on the individual, in a pattern with varying percentages and distances between hair follicles. By implementing the Mosaic® Hair Restoration technique, our surgeons are able to analyze the pattern of growth in the existing hair to design the most natural looking strategy for the transplant site.

Men undergoing hair transplant surgery that want a boost, or who have recently undergone transplant surgery and want to keep their hair healthy and full might consider the Capillus272 as an additional treatment.

While hair loss at night can be alarming, you aren’t out of options. In fact, our world class team of surgeons will work with you to determine the best procedure to help you regain your confidence. For more information, contact Dr. Bernard Nusbaum and Dr. Paul Rose at 305.448.9100.
