What Your Hair Says About Your Health

While many of us only focus on the aesthetic pleasure of having flowing shiny locks, the fact is that dull, limp strands, or hair loss, can sometimes indicate a health issue. Here are a few conditions to watch out for:

Hair loss and graying

woman with gray hairWhile thinning and graying hair can be a standard part of aging for both women and men, a recent study of 2,000 men in India showed that participants who had coronary artery disease were more likely to be prematurely bald or gray. The study, conducted by the European Society of Cardiology on men under 40, discovered that the 50 percent of participants with coronary artery disease were more likely to have gone prematurely gray, versus 30 percent of a healthy control group, the BBC reports. The participants in the heart condition group were also more likely (49 percent) to have male pattern baldness, compared with those in the healthy group (27 percent).

Metabolic or hormonal stress and certain medications can cause hair loss, especially if it is sudden. This condition is called Telogen effluvium, according to Medscape. In a majority of cases, new hair starts growing within six months, but longer durations of the condition also exist.

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.

Take Hair Regrowth to the Max with Max Density Hair Restoration

Hair loss and hair thinning are problems that plague millions of Americans. While male pattern baldness accounts for more than 95 percent of hair loss cases in men, women also suffer from hair issues. In fact, female androgenetic alopecia affects 50 percent of women at some point in their lives.

Fortunately, modern medical technology means new options for treating balding and other issues in both sexes. A board-certified hair restoration surgeon, Dr. Bruce Marko boasts almost 20 years of experience in the transplant field. His advanced hair transplants are performed using his trademarked MAX DENSITY® Hair Restoration Procedure. Along with producing a more natural result, the treatment takes less time and results in less post-operative pain and swelling, so patients can get back to their routines sooner.

Here are some of the many advantages associated with using Max Density Hair Restoration over other forms of treatment:

  • Lower prices
  • Faster healing
  • Less-noticeable scars
  • Less anesthesia
  • More hairs transplanted at once

 

How the Procedure Works

The Max Density procedure is used to reverse hair loss and treat thinning hair. Dr. Marko starts by measuring the donor area of the scalp (usually located in the back or on the sides of the head) and then removing a strip of tissue. This material is called the hair graft. After preparing the graft, Dr. Marko and his team will prepare the graft site and transplant the new hairs. Because he uses “naturally occurring bundles,” there is minimal damage to the follicles. Additionally, he utilizes multi-follicular unit grafts for improved hair density and appearance. Because the scalp is numbed before treatment, Max Density patients experience little to no pain.

With Max Density Hair Restoration, patients can choose from five different levels of restoration known as BRONZE, SILVER, GOLD, PLATINUM and PLATINUM PLUS, with the platinum plans offering the highest number of hairs transplanted. The procedure is generally less expensive than other treatments, as patients are not charge by the hair or by the graft. Instead, Dr. Marko strives to transplant the maximum number of hairs possible in each treatment.

 

After Treatment

Recovery from Max Density is generally painless, though patients are advised to take a few days off from work to relax. Dr. Marko can provide specific details during a free consultation.

Patients interested in Dr. Marko’s Max Density Hair Restoration procedure shouldn’t hesitate to contact his offices for details.

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.

With the services that Advanced Hair Transplants offers, there is no reason to suffer with hair loss any longer. Not only does Advanced Hair Transplants have affordable financing options, but they also offer a travel allowance to patients who have to travel over 100 miles to one of their facilities.

Las Vegas Hair Transplant Cost

Las Vegas Hair Transplant Cost

Las Vegas hair transplant cost is based on the amount of hair loss and the type of procedure chosen.  You might choose FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) or FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). FUT is the ‘strip method’ and FUE is the method whereby grafts are extracted with a motorized punch device. There is also the trademarked MAX DENSITY® hair transplant procedure where you get more hair in one procedure than either FUT or FUE.

Las Vegas hair surgeons typically charge by the graft or “follicular unit”, and the price can vary from $3 per graft to $9 per graft depending on the procedure you choose.

GRAFTS - 1,2,3,4

Is this 4 grafts of 11 grafts? What are you paying for? Do you know? Find out! Call (702) 994-2133 & ask for Lee.

The issue with charging by the graft is the fact that most people don’t know how many hairs are in a graft. A doctor can tell you he’s going to transplant a thousand grafts, but … how much hair are you actually getting? Are you getting 1000 hairs, 2000 hairs or more?  The reality is you want to know how much hair you’re getting, not how many grafts!

Las Vegas hair transplant cost should be based on how much hair you are getting, and not how many grafts!  Do you know how much hair you are getting when you pay by the graft? We can tell you what others won’t, and we guarantee you a great value when you are searching for Las Vegas hair transplant cost!

Two different doctors could transplant 1000 grafts on twin brothers and get a totally different result. The “result” depends on how many hairs you are actually getting, and … how many actually grow from the procedure. Are you getting 1000 one hair grafts, 1000 two hair grafts, or 1,000 grafts that consist of one hair, two hairs, and three hairs? Are you getting any multiple follicular units which could have five or six hairs per graft?  Do you really know what you’re getting when you pay by the graft?

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 lee@advancedhairtransplants.com. You can also reach out to Gene at (925) 918-7360 or email him at gene@advancedhairtransplants.com. 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.

For more information on Charlotte FUE hair transplants, please call (704) 295-9099 or (888) 923-7497.

 

 

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!

AHT2-5

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!

MAX DENSITY Platinum

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