Frequently Asked Questions About ARTAS Hair Transplant

FUE and FUT Hair Transplant Skills Differences

Frequently Asked Questions About ARTAS Hair TransplantA pitcher who can throw a 100-mph fastball is a talented baseball player. So too is a slugger who can hit home runs that seem to go for a mile. Even though they are working towards the same goal – winning the ballgame – the skills they bring to the game are completely different. Similarly, in hair transplant surgery, different techniques requiring different skills can be used to accomplish the same goal of restoring a full, vibrant, natural-looking head of hair.

At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we offer two highly refined approaches to surgical hairline restoration: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE/FIT) and Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG). Performed by Dr. Bernard Nusbaum and Dr. Paul Rose, two ISHRS Golden Follicle Award winning surgeons, these two transplant techniques are both effective at restoring hair yet involve significant differences in how that is accomplished.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE/FIT) 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.

Precision is the key to a successful FUE procedure, and the key to precision is experience and the skillful use of the most advanced technology available. Dr. Rose was one of the originators of the FUE technique, performing the procedure on thousands of patients since 2004. 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. Dr. Nusbaum and Dr. Rose use the ARTAS system to digitally scan areas of the scalp, identifying hair in its natural groupings. High resolution digital imaging provides unparalleled visual detail of the donor area as well as exceptional control of parameters such as spacing between harvests, graft dissection depth and hair angles to yield robust and viable grafts.

The selected hair is then precisely removed while 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.

Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG)

A meticulous attention to detail and a careful, methodical approach can accomplish excellent hair restoration results using the Follicular Unit Grafting method. In a FUG procedure, intact follicular units are transferred from the permanent donor zone in the back of the scalp to the recipient (balding) areas.

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

After harvesting, the donor tissue is carefully subdivided into individual, naturally occurring follicular units while the non-hair bearing (bald) skin surrounding each follicle is carefully removed while avoiding 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 technique which allows hair to grow through the donor-area scar, providing added camouflage. Finally, follicular unit grafts are inserted 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 used to restore your hair, the skill, talent, and experience of the surgeon performing the procedure can make all the difference between exceptional results and a disappointing outcome. At the Hair 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.

How to Grow Fuller Hair with Stem Cell Hair Therapy

Researchers Succeed in Growing Hair From Embryonic Stem CellsOur bodies are finely-tuned, intricate machines. Like all machines, they need regular maintenance and occasional repair. Stem cells are the all-purpose handymen of our bodies, available to help restore healthy functioning throughout, including the hair and scalp. Full heads of hair are the result of hair follicles which are constantly regenerating, due in part to the presence of stem cells. But when those stem cells shrink and deteriorate as we age, hair stops renewing and ultimately falls out. That’s why reintroducing an individual’s own stem cell back to the follicles has the potential to create a nourishing environment which may foster regrowth and fight the battle against hair loss.

That is why stem cell therapy for hair loss has become an increasingly popular treatment.

What Does Stem Cell Treatment for Hair Loss Involve?

Safe and effective, the minimally invasive stem cell procedure involves isolating a few ounces of adult stem cells from fat in the abdomen, flanks, or love handles and reintroducing them to the scalp.

Those fat cells are removed from the midsection using a “mini” liposuction procedure. Prior to this approximately 20-minute-long outpatient procedure, a mild oral sedative and local anesthesia is administered, minimizing any pain or discomfort.

Following the liposuction, the medical professionals performing the procedure will isolate the stem cells while you rest. Once isolated, they will then be injected into targeted areas of the scalp, where they will begin their work stimulating hair growth.

What Happens After the Treatment?

The whole treatment process should last approximately three hours. As an outpatient procedure, you will be able to go home shortly thereafter. However, since you will have been under mild sedation, you should arrange for someone else to drive you home. While you may experience some mild soreness after the procedure, you should be able to go back to work the next day.

When Can I Expect to See Results?

It may take a few months before you notice any results, and as this is a relatively new procedure, it is not yet clear how long results will last. However, the team at the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami is optimistic of long-term hair regrowth potential, particularly with ongoing treatment. Stem cell treatment can be used in conjunction with hair transplant surgery, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, topical treatments or low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to increase your odds of success.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Hair Transplant Surgery?

Hair Transplant Gets Celebrity Endorsement from Wes WelkerFor many men and women experiencing hair loss, hair transplant surgery performed by a skilled and experienced medical professional is a safe and effective way to address the issue and restore their hair to a full, natural-looking state. But not everyone who suffers from hair loss is a candidate for a hair transplant procedure, though other treatment options such as hair loss drugs or home-use laser therapy caps may be available and better suited to their needs.

So how do you know if you are a good candidate for hair transplant surgery? You’ll only know for sure after you’ve had a comprehensive hair loss evaluation, but here are three key characteristics which may mean that hair transplant surgery is a good option for you:

  • Sufficient supply of donor hair. For hair transplant surgery to work, there actually has to be hair to transplant. Unlike organ transplants where someone else is the donor, hair transplants involve donating your own hair. Hair is taken from areas of hair on the back or sides of your head and transplanted to the treatment area, where it will continue to grow. Both male and female hair replacement candidates must have healthy hair growth in the donor area at the back of the head for transplant surgery to be a viable solution to hair loss.
  • Permanent hair loss. For some individuals, hair loss is a temporary or seasonal issue. Surgery is only an appropriate option for those suffering from permanent hair loss, such as male pattern baldness.
  • Adults only. Successful hair transplant surgeries involve identifying the individual patient’s unique hair loss pattern, and transplanting hair to the balding and thinning areas in a way that creates a natural looking hairline. While children and teenagers can experience permanent hair loss, their hair loss pattern may not be fully developed while they are still growing, making it difficult to perform the procedure in a way that will yield optimal results. As such, hair transplant surgery is only recommended as a potential treatment for individuals 18 and older.

Schedule an Appointment for a Hair Loss Evaluation Today

As noted, you will only know whether you are a candidate for hair transplant surgery after consulting with a hair restoration surgeon. At the Hair Institute of Miami, we evaluate each hair loss patient with a comprehensive and proven methodology, obtaining a detailed medical history, performing an in-depth scalp examination using state-of-the art diagnostic tools and, if indicated, blood tests to detect any underlying imbalances or deficiencies that may be contributing to the hair loss problem. With this information, we can determine the cause of hair loss and the most effective treatment option.

Tips on Controlling Hair Loss in the Summer

scalp folliculitisHair loss is a year-round problem for many people, but summertime can make this troublesome issue even worse. The high temperatures, humidity, and intense sunshine that are unescapable parts of a South Florida summer can accelerate hair loss. In the middle of summer, hair follicles enter a resting phase, or “telogen” state, more frequently that they do the rest of the year. This is especially true for women. Summer’s extreme temperatures can result in over 70% of hair follicles entering this resting phase, which in turn can lead to shedding at a clip faster than the average loss of between 50-100 follicles a day.

Luckily, there are some simple steps you can take to strengthen your hair follicles and control your rate of hair loss during the warm summer months; steps which will keep your hair healthy through Labor Day and beyond.

Hydrate. You already know that you need to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water during the summer (and throughout the year, in fact). Staying hydrated is not only vital for your overall health during hot temperatures, it is essential for your hair as well. Along with skin, hair is one of the first parts of the body to show the effects of water, vitamin, and mineral deficiency. Hair shafts are made up of approximately 25 percent water, and lack of moisture causes the shaft to weaken. Make a conscious effort to push fluids throughout the summer – at least 64 ounces of water per day –  to keep your thirsty hair from drying out.

Switch to a milder shampoo. Although sweating might prompt you to wash your hair more frequently, stick to an every-other-day routine at most and try to avoid harsh, chemical or fragrance-laden shampoos. Switch to mild, organic shampoos; even baby shampoo is a great alternative during the summer.   

Healthy summer diet. To stop and prevent hair loss, be sure to maintain a well-rounded diet rich in protein, biotin, vitamin E, vitamin A, and other important nutrients. Summertime is a naturally good time to load up your shopping cart with lighter, moisture and nutrient-rich foods that can provide your follicles with the ingredients they need. Consider these seven light, summery foods to keep your hair strong and shiny.

20 Superfoods for Stronger Hair

Superfoods to Boost Hair Growth

20 Superfoods for Stronger HairThere is no doubt that what is inside of us when we’re born – our genes – plays a large role in determining whether we will have a full head of hair or whether we will experience thinning or hair loss. In fact, a recent study found nearly 300 genetic ties to hair loss. But what we put inside ourselves throughout our lives – the foods we eat and beverages we drink – can also impact the health of our hair and scalp.

A healthy, balanced diet rich in key nutrients can help boost hair growth in addition to improving your overall health and sense of well-being. Whether as an adjunct to hair restoration treatments or just as part of a healthy lifestyle, incorporating a wide range of readily available “superfoods” into your diet will result in positive change from head to toe.

Next time you hit your grocery store or farmers market, load up your cart with these hair-positive foods:

  • As you may recall from high school biology class, protein and their amino acids are the “building blocks” of the body – and hair. A diet which includes a healthy amount of protein from various sources can be a key to strong and growing hair. Few foods are as rich in protein as nuts and legumes. Nuts also contain a variety of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. Try to make nuts like almonds, walnuts, and cashews a regular part of your diet.
  • Salmon and other fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids. For hair health, omega-3 fatty acids keep the scalp hydrated to stimulate follicle function while enriching strands for a shinier glow. Foods such as salmon, sardines, and trout are great resources for boosting your omega-3 intake.
  • Spinach and other leafy greens. A lack of iron is one of the chief causes of dietary-related hair loss. Low iron levels limit proper blood flow – something follicles need to receive growth-stimulating nutrients. Iron-rich foods such as spinach, kale, broccoli, and other leafy greens can boost your iron intake and help feed your hair. As a bonus, spinach contains antioxidants, vitamins B, C and E, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids, all of which can help your hair and scalp.
  • Vitamin C acts as a catalyst for iron to absorb into the blood stream. Eating these two hair boosting nutrients together fosters hair growth. In addition, the antioxidants found in vitamin C, along with its collagen-boosting properties, keep skin, hair and nails looking and feeling nourished. Grapefruits as well as other fruits such as oranges, strawberries and blueberries, contain high levels of Vitamin C necessary for hair growth.  
  • Not only are lentils a good source of protein, they also contain ample amounts of iron, zinc, and biotin which promote a healthy scalp and strengthen hair.
  • Next time you make guacamole, you’re also whipping up a tasty mix of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins B and E which can help protect and strengthen hair. Vitamin B is essential for hair growth, while vitamin E protects your skin and hair from environmental pollutants and sun damage. 
  • Sunflower seeds.This healthy snack or salad topping contains a cornucopia of hair boosting nutrients such as protein, zinc, selenium, biotin, potassium, copper, iron, B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium and calcium.

You’ve made a choice to improve your confidence and overall sense of well-being by restoring your hair to its full, natural appearance. But once you’ve made that choice, many others follow, and no decision is more important that picking the right hair transplant surgeon.

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 more than clear. You’ll also discover that there are a wide range of surgical and non-surgical treatment options.

  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 charge by the procedure, by the follicular unit, or by the follicle?
  11. Do you offer payment plans?
  12. If I’m not from the South Florida area, can you offer an evaluation or quote without an office visit or do you offer travel plans for non-Miami residents?
  13. Do you have before and after pictures that can show me the results of your work?
  14. Are there former patients I can speak with to see their results and hear about their experience?
  15. Why in your opinion are you the right hair transplant surgeon for me?

Scalp Inflammation

What is the Duration of a Hair Transplant Procedure?

How do different hair restoration techniques work?If you suffer from hair loss, you may have spent years watching with dismay as your hair became thinner and thinner. You may have also spent a lot of time wondering whether you should do something about it. If you finally make the decision to take action and restore your hair and your confidence through a hair transplant procedure, you’ll no doubt want to know how long the procedure will take.

At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we offer a highly refined approach to surgical hair 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, our advanced techniques offer patients effective options for restoring a full, robust head of hair while minimizing the commitment of their valuable time.

Pre-Surgery

One of our primary transplantation techniques is Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG). Not only does this technique provide extraordinary naturalness, it can be performed in only one session.

With follicular unit grafting, we isolate the naturally occurring hair groupings (hairs grow in groups of 1, 2, 3 or 4 hairs). The donor area is taken from the back of the head using magnification to avoid follicle damage.

During the 7-14 days immediately prior to your procedure, avoid aspirin or other anti-inflammatory medications, whether prescription or over-the-counter. These can affect blood flow and interfere with healing. If at all possible, avoid products such as Advil, Aleve, Alka Seltzer, Bufferin, Excedrin, Nuprin or Motrin.

The Session

On the day of the procedure, patients are given local anesthesia (like a dentist uses) and an oral sedative and rest or watch movies/TV/Blackberry/ iPhone/iPad. Anesthetizing the areas is the only painful part of the session and the above technique usually causes less discomfort than a visit to the dentist. Bandages are avoided altogether.

The procedure itself takes 3 to 6 hours, depending on the size of the area being transplanted. If the baldness is extensive, the front half is transplanted first in one procedure and a second procedure for the back half (or crown) will be performed 10 weeks later.

“Fill in” sessions can be performed after the procedure depending on the patient’s density objectives. The number of grafts which should be transplanted at one session and the number and frequency of transplant sessions depend on the characteristics of each individual case; you and your doctor will have worked this out in advance.

After Your Procedure

Following a brief rest period, you will be ready to leave the office. Due to the mild sedative used during the procedure, please make arrangements for someone to bring you home.

The day after the procedure, we ask that you return to have the areas checked and shampooed. Some patients experience crusting and mild redness in the recipient area which can last 7-10 days. Many patients can camouflage these crusts by combing the adjacent hair over the transplanted site, or by wearing a hat. Topical solutions may also be applied after the procedure to accelerate the separation of the crusts.

It is normal for the transplanted hairs to “fall out” in the first few weeks. The hairs then recycle and begin growing in about three to four months. The results are often not visible for six months or somewhat longer with final results evident at 12 months. The results are permanent.

prevent male pattern baldness

Can You Prevent Male Pattern Baldness?

prevent male pattern baldnessMany individuals are concerned about going bald later in life. To some degree, male pattern baldness (MPB) affects two-thirds of men by the time they reach age 35. By age 50, around 85 percent suffer noticeable thinning or balding. The odds of developing hair loss at an older age are high – so what can you do to prevent male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia?

Androgenic alopecia is an often devastating and emotionally grim condition to cope with, despite how prevalent it is among men today. Although certain medications, immune problems, cancer treatments and traumas can cause hair loss, male-pattern baldness is hereditary. Those who experience MPB have follicles that are inherently sensitive to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a byproduct of testosterone that causes hair follicles to miniaturize. Once these follicles shrink to a severe extent, regrowth is challenging. But, early intervention can slow or stop the miniaturization process altogether.

Consider the following treatments which can help prevent male pattern baldness progression.

Minimize Your Stress

Although you can’t change your genetics, you can adapt your lifestyle to avoid circumstances that exacerbate hair loss. Serious stress or emotional trauma can render hair follicles inactive. Unlike normal hair growth, more hairs enter the resting phase (catagen) at once and fall out (exogen) in larger numbers about three months following a tense event. If you’re already predisposed to male pattern baldness, high stress interferes with whatever partial hair growth remains. Managing anxiety through meditation and a healthy work-life balance lessens your odds of abrupt shedding. Trying to prevent male pattern baldness from escalating is a stressful situation alone. If you already suffer from noticeable hair loss, seeking treatment early on reduces negative emotions by restoring self-confidence.  

Improve Your Physical Health

Changing your diet and starting an exercise regimen has a profound impact on your internal health, which can help prevent male pattern baldness severity. Studies show that older men with a higher cardiorespiratory fitness level release almost half as much cortisol as men who aren’t in healthy form.¹ Cortisol is the stress hormone believed to be linked with sudden hair shedding. When it comes to non-hereditary hair loss – which can strike alongside male pattern baldness and make matters worse – maintaining healthy hormone levels with exercise and good nutrition can enable healthy growth.

Create a Better Environment for Hair Growth

Low-level laser therapy, or LLLT, is a non-invasive technique used to stimulate underactive hair follicles. Through phototherapy, laser diodes interact with the scalp to promote better blood flow, helping follicles function properly. In some instances, LLLT helps prevent male pattern baldness from advancing. At-home laser caps can be used alongside other hair loss treatments, including prescriptions and topical foams. LLLT can also be used in conjunction with hair transplant surgery to reduce inflammation and nourish follicles for better results. Hair is stronger, thicker and more resilient to everyday damage.

Despite your genetics, hair loss does not have to become your destiny. To learn more about how to prevent male pattern baldness from worsening, or to discuss treatment options, call the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami at 305-925-0222. Through understanding, education and highly-effective treatment methods, we are determined to help patients attain a fuller head of hair and positive outlook on life.

Can Chlorine Cause Hair Loss

Safe Hairstyles for Long Hair

Can Chlorine Cause Hair LossGrowing hair long and strong can take years and determination, and caring for your lengthy locks is key. With long hair, you may be tempted to pull strands back from the face. However, many slicked-back up-do’s cause tension on follicles. Over time, this tension and strain can lead to follicle shock and traction alopecia, which disrupts the natural cycle of growth. This condition is one of many that manifests as thinning or shedding hair.

Everyone needs to tie their hair back once in a while, but traction alopecia prevention is important. Consider the following tips to create a safe hairstyle for long hair without thinning or shedding:

  • Loose Buns and Ponytails

If you want to pull your hair from the nape of your neck on a hot summer day or during exercise, opt for a loose bun. Avoid sharp bobby pins and rubber hair ties for a more natural, soft look. If you have heavier hair, pull strands back into a low bun or ponytail so the added lifted weight does not put additional strain on the scalp.

  • Beach Waves

Summer might be over, but beach waves are a good look any time of year. Put away the curling iron and let hair dry naturally to showcase your natural curls. To tame tresses, use an anti-frizz serum or natural oil that looks in moisture and gives hair a lustrous sheen. If you have naturally straight hair, you can still achieve soft waves without hot hair tools. Let strands dry in loose pig tail braids or a French braid overnight. In the morning, you’ll be left with soft, bohemian waves that can transition easily from the office to a night on the town.

  • Braids

When you’re a kid, pigtail braids are all the rage. As an adult, you can still incorporate braids into your everyday style without looking immature. French braids are both sophisticated and sleek, but keep weaves loose to avoid drawing tension to the scalp. You can also wrap a crown braid around your hairline for a chic, pulled back look without using a tense hairband.

Let your long locks flow naturally once in a while to de-stress follicles and encourage hair health. If you must use styling tools, limit heat exposure to special occasions or weekends instead of styling after each wash. Don’t forget the importance of a high-quality conditioner (free of sulfates) or intensive hair mask that keep locks moisturized and healthy throughout the dry winter season.
