ARTAS® Hair Transplant Procedure Charlotte

Dr. Bruce Marko announced today that he will now offer the ARTAS® Hair Transplant Procedure Charlotte. This minimally invasive hair restoration solution leverages digital imaging and precision robotics for harvesting individual follicular units directly from the scalp. The ARTAS System enables hair restoration physicians to target and harvest healthy follicular units with micron level accuracy without leaving a linear scar.

“Offering the ARTAS® Hair Transplant Procedure Charlotte will be essential for my practice and for my patients who seek a permanent solution to hair loss without the scarring and downtime that comes with alternatives in the market. I’m extremely pleased with the results and excited to offer a robotic solution to hair restoration,” commented Dr. Marko.”

Hair restoration is performed as an office-based, out-patient procedures usually ranging from 4-8 hours depending on the amount of hair being transplanted. Implanted hairs develop their own blood supply, begin to grow and new hairs are seen a few months after the procedure. New hair continues to grow, making the change in the patient’s appearance gradually noticeable within six months.

“We are very pleased we can offer doctors and their patients the ARTAS® Hair Transplant Procedure Charlotte.  It is the most advanced hair transplant solution that is safe, minimally invasive and extremely effective,” said Jim McCollum, Chief Executive Officer, Restoration Robotics.
Hair Loss By The Numbers

Over 35 million men are affected by male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) in the United States alone. Approximately two-thirds of American men will experience appreciable hair loss by age 35; by age 50, 85% will see significant loss in hair thickness. Genetic hair loss, which typically begins between late adolescence and before or during middle age, is largely untreatable outside of surgery.

Advanced Hair Transplants – Who We Are

For most of us, losing our hair is a natural part of growing older. In fact, according to recent figures, roughly a quarter of men start to experience hair loss by the age of 30. That number jumps to more than 60% by the time men reach their 60’s and 70’s. Unfortunately, women don’t fare much better when it comes to losing their hair. Nearly 60% of women see a noticeable amount of hair thinning or loss at some point in their lives. Thankfully, hair loss isn’t a burden you have to live with. Due to modern restoration techniques, hair loss can be effectively corrected. Just ask one of the country’s top providers of hair loss solutions, Advanced Hair Transplants.

Advanced Hair Transplants Services

The team of experts at Advanced Hair Transplants has more than 20 years of experience with providing hair loss solutions for both men and women. At their facilities, Advanced Hair Transplants offers a wide range of services, including follicular unit transplant (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE), but that’s only the beginning. They also offer facial hair restoration packages, allowing you to replace hair that you may have lost from your beard, goatee, sideburn, or eyebrow areas. Additionally, if you’re interested in a less-invasive hair restoration procedure, Advanced Hair Transplants also offers low-level laser therapy, which can reactivate hair cells and promote the growth of new hairs.

Advanced Hair Transplants’ greatest claim to fame, however, is its trademarked MAX DENSITY® procedure. A propriety method for hair transplantation, MAX DENSITY® offers a number of benefits. For starters, more hairs are transplanted with MAX DENSITY®, allowing for greater overall thickness. Moreover, the procedure takes less time and requires less anesthesia when compared to other transplantation procedures. Perhaps best of all, the MAX DENSITY® procedure is more cost-effective and patients have a shorter recovery time than with traditional types of hair transplantation.

The Man Behind It All

The MAX DENSITY procedure was developed by Dr. Bruce Marko, who serves as the medical director for Advanced Hair Transplants. Dr. Marko is a board-certified hair restoration surgeon who has personally performed thousands of transplant procedures in his career. Also, he is a member of both the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery as well as the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. In addition to being at the forefront of the hair restoration industry for more than 16 years, Dr. Marko is also a hair transplant patient himself, giving him a better understanding of his patients’ needs.

What does a hair transplant cost?



What does a hair transplant cost?

If you are considering a hair transplant to cover your thinning or balding scalp, you’re probably wondering what it will cost. Cost is typically an important part of your decision making process, however it should not totally govern your final decision.

The old adage, ‘you get what you pay for’ is something to consider with hair transplant surgery. If you’re going bald, and you can’t imagine yourself with a shaved head, the cost for a hair transplant may be well worth the money you invest.

This being said, you want the most bang for your buck.  And, the bang for your buck in this scenario is about getting as much density as possible for the money you spend on a hair transplant.

At Advanced Hair Transplants, we offer patients all proven solutions to fix hair loss including FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant), FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and our trademarked MAX DENSITY® hair restoration procedure.  Hair transplant cost is based on the amount of hair that must be moved, and the procedure chosen (FUT, FUE or MAX DENSITY®) for your individual need.

Our Board Certified Hair Restoration surgeons will give you a recommendation with regard to which procedure is best for you. If your hair is short, the FUE procedure may be your best bet, and if it’s longer, you might choose MAX DENSITY®.

The cost of your hair transplant procedure will depend on the type of procedure you choose: FUT, FUE, MAX DENSITY, FACIAL HAIR RESTORATION (Beards, goatees, eyebrows, sideburns, mustaches, etc). Each procedure is unique and has a different price based on factors including the size of the session, number of grafts, time involved, and number of technicians assisting the doctor.

Advanced Hair Transplants offers Complimentary ‘In Person’ Consultations, or you can submit photos for an ‘Online Review’ by one of our Board Certified Hair Restoration Surgeons.  To find out your hair transplant cost, please call Lee at (888) 923-7497 or send an email to You can also reach out to Gene at (925) 918-7360 or email him at We look forward to hearing from you!

Charlotte FUE Hair Transplants

If you are searching for Charlotte FUE hair transplants, look no further than Advanced Hair Transplants.  Dr. Bruce Marko, is a ‘Board Certified Hair Restoration Surgeon” with more than 16 years experience performing all hair transplant procedures including FUE, FUT, and Facial Hair Restoration for beards, goatees, sideburns and eyebrows.  Dr. Marko consults with every patient and decides which procedure is the best for that person.

Charlotte FUE hair transplants are good for some patients, but they are not for everyone.  There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to hair transplants. It is in the best interest of every patient to know the pros and cons of each procedure.  While FUE is a good option for patients who always wear very short hair, it’s not necessarily the best option for someone with longer hair.

FUE donor immediately after surgery and 1 week after surgery.

Charlotte FUE Hair Transplants donor immediately after surgery and 1 week later.

FUE is a minimally invasive procedure. Local anesthesia is used to numb both the donor area and the area where the grafts will be transplanted. Unlike the FUT hair transplant procedure, a ‘strip’ of hair is not removed from the donor area. Follicles are removed from the donor area using a 1mm punch (or smaller) and forceps. The individual grafts are placed on ice to insure their survival. Recipient sites are then artistically created by Dr. Marko at specific angles and direction so the hair will grow in a perfect pattern, and the final result will look totally natural.

At Advanced Hair Transplants, Dr. Marko and his certified surgical team perform Charlotte FUE hair transplants for the scalp, eyebrows, and beards.  They also perform FUE transplant surgery on patients who want to camouflauge scars from ‘strip’ surgeries.

FUE hair transplant procedures are very time consuming and typically take many hours longer than FUT (strip) surgeries. FUE hair transplants are also more expensive than FUT procedures.

Hair Transplant Cost

How much does a hair transplant cost?

GRAFTS - 1,2,3,4

Most doctors will charge you by the graft.  Charging by the graft has been the ‘Gold Standard’ for hair restoration surgery. The problem with charging by the graft is that it can be deceptive because most people don’t know how many hairs are in a graft.  If a doctor says he will transplant 1000 grafts, what does that mean?  Are you getting a thousand 1 hair grafts, a thousand 2 hair grafts or a thousand 3 hair grafts or a thousand multi-follicular unit grafts that will have 6-8 hairs per graft?

If a doctor is honest and ‘doing the right thing’ for the patient, he will transplant the grafts as they grow in their natural state.  In other words, if a graft is 3 hairs, that graft is not cut into three 1 hair grafts and you are not charged three times the amount. If the hair transplant cost is $5 per graft, then a 1 hair graft, 2 hair graft, or 3 hair graft is $5.  Make sense?

At Advanced Hair Transplants, our surgeons give you the maximum amount of hair in one procedure based on your donor density and scalp flexibility. We do not dissect larger grafts into smaller ones and charge you more money like some of the unscrupulous doctors on our industry. Our hair transplant cost is the same as our competitors, however, we give you more hair in one procedure!


We offer the trademarked MAX DENSITY® procedure which gives you more density in one surgery when compared to the typical pay-by-the graft procedure. Our surgeon meticulously measures the donor hair that will be removed. Based on average hair density, a person will have 200 hairs per 1 sq. cm. of hair.  If the doctor removes 30 sq. cm. of hair, it will yield approximately 6000 hairs.  With this procedure, the hair transplant cost is based on the amount of hair moved. A MAX DENSITY® procedure gives you a fair hair transplant cost and a better final result!


Call us at (888) 923-7497 and find out how we do it different! It’s all about the DENSITY!!

(MAX DENSITY® is a trademarked procedure only available at ADVANCED HAIR TRANSPLANTS.) – See more at:

Advanced Hair Transplants – Charlotte

Gone are the days of unsightly hair plugs and corn rows of unnatural looking hair. If those are the images in your mind about hair transplants, it’s time to erase them.

Today’s advanced hair transplant techniques offer natural looking results that are undetectable.  Not even your hair stylist or barber will know you’ve had a surgical hair restoration procedure.

The ‘Board Certified Hair Restoration Surgeons’ at Advanced Hair Transplants are using the most advanced state-of-the-art techniques and tools available.  We create natural looking hair lines and cover thinning areas of the scalp and crown with undetectable hair restoration.

We offer FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant), FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), and the trademarked MAX DENSITY® hair transplant procedure created by Dr. Bruce Marko.

Hair is removed from the donor area located on the back and sides of the head.  This hair has a different genetic code than the hair located on the top of the head, and is programmed to grow for a lifetime.  Hair extracted from the donor area is transplanted in the hair line, top of the head and crown.  The transplanted hair maintains the same characteristics of color, texture, growth rate and curl lending to its natural looking appearance, and … it is permanent!

If you are losing your hair and live in the Charlotte, Las Vegas, San Francisco or Scottsdale area please give us a call at (888) 923-7497.  We are here to help you!
