FUE Hair Transplant Las Vegas

If you are searching for FUE Hair Transplant Las Vegas, we offer the latest breakthrough technology: The S.A.F.E™ (Surgically Advanced Follicular Extraction) System.

This breakthrough technology enables Dr. Khorsandi and his team to perform precise follicular extraction without unnecessary damage to the hair follicles. It significantly increases the number of grafts that can be transplanted a single day. (2000 grafts or more)

The S.A.F.E. System offers a hair restoration solution if you are looking for a natural looking FUE hair transplant Las Vegas.


The S.A.F.E. System technique is a solution for patients who want to wear their hair one half-inch (1/2″) long or less. Hair grafts (1,2,3,4’s) are extracted easily and artistically transplanted to create natural looking hair lines, and add hair density to the top and crown of the head.

Please take a look at this video:

The tiny circular holes created with FUE will heal in a shorter period of time than the FUT (Strip) linear scar., and the results optimal.

Studies show that inexperienced surgeons using the standard FUE technique may damage more than 20-30% of the hair follicles they remove. The comprehensive S.A.F.E™ System has been proven to help reduce follicle damage to as low as 2.8% or less.

Eyebrow Transplants

Eyebrow Transplants will change the way you feel!

With more and more women losing their eyebrows from over-plucking, eyebrow transplants are becoming more and more popular. It’s a great solution for women with tattoo’d brows who want real eyebrow hair again. Some women have very thin eyebrows and wish to have eyebrow transplants to make them wider.

Eyebrow transplants typically involve transplanting 200-300 hairs per brow, and the cost for the two brows averages in the $5000 – $8000 range. The procedure is performed with a local anesthesia, and It only takes a few hours to complete the surgery.

Eyebrow transplant procedures often require a whole new set and superior design, depending on the wishes of the patient. Some women want high arched eyebrows while others will go for a straighter look. Many patients only need a touch-up to fill-in thin area or they may want to add more density to each brow. Every patient discusses what they want with the surgeon, and the eyebrow design is drawn to the specifications of the patient.

Eyebrow transplant hair is taken from the back or side of the scalp, depending on the texture and quality of the hair. Hair is removed by either the FUT (strip) or FUE (punch) Method. Transplanted hair from the back of the head is different than normal eyebrow hair. After the eyebrow transplant procedure is complete, the brows will take approximately one week to heal. The new eyebrow hair will start to grow in 3-4 months with more hair filling in every month to the one year mark. Because eyebrow hair comes from the back of the head, it is different than normal eyebrow hair. It will grow longer and must be trimmed more often.

An eyebrow transplant is a very delicate and artistic procedure when compared to a scalp hair transplant. Obviously, because eyebrows are on the face, careful attention must be made to the shape, detail and symmetry of the two brows.

Superior Facial Hair Restoration at Advanced Hair Transplants

When most of us think about hair transplants, we typically think about the hair on top of the head. Unfortunately, however, the top of the head isn’t the only place that people suffer from thinness or balding. Millions of men have a difficult time growing facial hair, from mustaches and goatees to beards and sideburns. And millions more men and women have eyebrows that don’t grow in properly.

Because of these issues, facial hair transplants have been rising in popularity in recent years. And Advanced Hair Transplants, a national leader in hair restoration, is at the cutting edge of this important work.

Facial Hair For Men

Not all men – or their partners for that matter – are wild about the clean-shaven look. Sadly though, a lot of men have facial hair that comes in too thin, overly patchy, or it doesn’t grow in at all. For these men, facial transplantation is an ideal option.

At Advanced Hair Transplants, facial hair restoration is handled similarly to traditional scalp restoration. During treatment, donor hair is extracted from the back or sides of the head and then transplanted to the appropriate sites on the face. As part of the transplantation, the experts at Advanced Hair Transplants lay out the recipient sites with a grease pencil to ensure that the new facial hair will look completely natural.


Eyebrow Restoration

Whether it’s due to faulty genetics or harmful practices such as plucking, some people are unable to grow full, aesthetically pleasing eyebrows. Fortunately, the experts at Advanced Hair Transplants have a solution. As with other types of hair transplantation, donor hairs are extracted from the back or sides of the head and are then artistically placed individually or in strips to create new, natural-looking eyebrows.


The Benefits of Facial Hair Restoration

Without question, the greatest benefit to these procedures is that the results last for a lifetime. Once the grafts are transplanted, they will continue to grow new hairs for as long as you live. 

Also, the transplantation process itself is relatively quick and easy. For facial hair procedures, the patient can be in and out in as little as six hours, depending on how much hair is being transplanted. For smaller eyebrow procedures, treatment can take three to six hours. Following hair restoration treatment, new hair will start to grow naturally in about three to four months.
If you’re tired of having lackluster facial hair, then now is the time to do something about it. To schedule a free consultation, give Advanced Hair Transplants a call or contact us online.

Prognosis and Treatments for Female Hair Loss Pattern

Although male pattern balding is better known, there is also a female hair loss pattern. It’s a gradual but progressive condition, but treatment can slow or staunch the thinning and hair loss. While hair loss may start at any age, for most women it becomes noticeable once they are menopausal. Your doctor diagnoses female hair loss via a clinical scalp examination and a medical history. He will then advise you on the best treatment for your situation.

Hair Loss Medications

If you are diagnosed with female hair loss pattern, your doctor may prescribe topical Minoxidil, the only FDA-approved drug for treating this issue. Minoxidil helps lengthen the growing phase of hair follicles. While men are prescribed Minoxidil in 5 percent strength, the female version is much lower, at 2 percent.  Women may have to apply the medication to their scalp twice a day for up to a year before noting results. Minoxidil has few, if any, side effects.

Nutritional Supplementation

Certain nutritional supplements and/or dietary changes may increase hair growth or slow the loss rate. Lack of specific nutrients, such as iron, may cause hair loss. Supplements containing biotin and other B vitamins may help restore growth, but consult your doctor before starting any vitamin regimen.


“A woman’s crowning glory is her hair,” states the old adage, and hair loss can profoundly affect a woman’s mental and emotional state. If hair loss is causing depression or anxiety, your doctor can prescribe antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications. Counseling is another option, with or without drug therapy. Becoming upset about hair loss is natural, and there’s no shame in dealing with problem either through therapy or medication.

Hair Pieces

For some women, changing their hairstyle camouflages the balding areas. If your own stylist isn’t adept at making these changes, your doctor can recommend someone specializing in this art. If you’re using Minoxidil, you need a style compatible with its regular application. Wigs are another possibility, as are hair extensions to add volume.

Hair Transplants

For some women, hair transplantation surgery can restore their crowning glory. It’s especially effective for women with female hair loss pattern. The procedure involves removing plugs of hair – so-called “donor” plugs – from thicker areas and transplanting them into bald patches. While hair transplantation is expensive, the results are generally quite good, as well as permanent.

Without treatment, you will never restore your hair. Speak with your doctor about the best options for reversing your hair loss.

MAX DENSITY ® Procedure Leaves Undetectable Scar

A quick image search on the internet will show you the disastrous results that can occur when hair transplant procedures are done incorrectly. Noticeable scars following transplantation not only ruin the natural look and feel that many patients want, but they also draw unwanted attention to the area that was treated. In short, in many ways a hair transplant is only as good as the scar that it leaves behind.

This simple fact is what makes Dr. Bruce Marko’s MAX DENSITY® procedure so revolutionary. Through this specialized procedure, Dr. Marko leverages his more than 15 years of experience in the hair restoration industry to give his patients stunning, natural-looking results, complete with a scar that is virtually undetectable.

Whether you’re considering an FUT or FUE procedure, Dr. Marko’s MAX DENSITY® technique will deliver superior results.

For follicle unit transplants (FUTs), the MAX DENSITY® procedure offers, on average, double the hair density that patients receive from traditional FUE procedures. These incredible results are made possible, in part, by the unique harvesting technique that Dr. Marko and his team employ. Using their own specialized harvesting tool, only small linear incisions are required to remove the donor strip, minimizing the size of the resulting scar.

In fact, the scar is so small that it is typically less than two millimeters in width. So even with short hair, most people won’t notice the scar unless they were looking for it, and with long hair it’s practically invisible. These incredible results are what make Dr. Marko and his team unique in the world of hair transplantation.

But this specialized approach to surgery isn’t the only thing that makes Advanced Hair Transplants one of a kind. What also sets them apart is Dr. Marko’s artistic vision and his personal commitment to each and every one of this patients.

Following extraction, Dr. Marko and his team take the time to carefully and artistically render the graft sites so that the hair grows in a natural and aesthetically pleasing way. Through this commitment to excellence, Dr. Marko ensures that each of his patients is satisfied with his or her surgery and that the final result is a natural-looking head of hair.

Between the superior surgical techniques and commitment to excellence, Dr. Marko’s MAX DENSITY® procedure is the clear choice when it comes to hair transplantation. If you’d like to learn more about what Advanced Hair Transplants can do for you, then reach out online or call (888) 923-7497 to schedule a complimentary consultation either in-person or online via Facetime.

Las Vegas FUE Hair Transplant

The American Hair Loss Association states that more than two-thirds of men will experience some degree of hair loss by age 35. Depending on the amount of lost hair, it can cause emotional issues and low self esteem for many men.

Men are not the only ones suffering from thinning hair. There are approximately 30 million women experiencing this crippling disease. Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon offers the minimally invasive FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) procedure that looks totally natural. The technology used for this Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method is a state-of-the-art S.A.F.E. Scribe Automated Hair Transplant System.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) using the S.A.F.E. Scribe technology, is a less invasive approach if you are looking for a Las Vegas hair transplant with no linear scar.  The FUE method removes individual hair follicles from the scalp with the S.A.F.E. Scribe machine operated punch. This mechanical unit used in conjunction with our experience technicians can remove up to twenty five hundred grafts (follicular units) in a one day Las Vegas hair transplant procedure.

The S.A.F.E. Scribe removes groupings of 1-4 hairs which are strategically and artistically transplanted in areas of the scalp where thinning or balding has occurred. The benefit of a Las Vegas FUE hair transplant is that a patient does not have to worry about a linear scar (line) across the  back of the head. This procedure is often chosen by men who wear their hair very tight or short in the back of their head.  It is a favorite among military personnel and the younger generation who prefer a shaved head or fade style haircut.


Las Vegas FUE hair transplant patients are those who prefer a less invasive surgical approach. FUE is suitable for both men and women. Men who want hair short and enjoy an active lifestyle would benefit from this approach. FUE is used to restore hair in old linear scars, and is popular for small procedures like eyebrow restoration.

FUE is an out patient procedure performed under local anesthesia. The S.A.F.E. Scribe punches out small 1,2,3 and 4 hair grafts. (No scalpel, sutures or staples are used). Dr. Khorsandi artistically creates the recipient sites for a Las Vegas FUE hair transplant masterpiece. His surgical team then implants the individual hairs. Depending on the amount of hair being transplanted, the procedure can take as long as 3-10 hours.

Most patients return to work in 5-7 days. Strenuous activity and exercise including weightlifting, CrossFit, running, should be avoided for about 1-2 weeks to insure the area of implantation is safely healed. Results vary by patient, but most patients will see new hair growth starting at 3-4 months post-op and the new hair will continue filling in the balding area up to a year before the process is complete.

The cost of a Las Vegas FUE hair transplant is based on the amount of grafts needed to restore the thinning or bald areas. The cost can range in price from $3000-$15,000.

The primary difference between FUE and FUT is the technique used for extracting the grafts. One method is with a punch and the other is with a scalpel to remove the strip. Both methods will give patients more hair in thinning areas.

Advanced Hair Transplants offers Las Vegas FUE procedures for both men and women. Follicular Unit Extraction, also known as FUE Hair Transplantation involves the individual extraction of follicular units from the sides and back of the scalp. FUE is a very labor intensive procedure that allows the patient to keep their donor hair very short with no linear scar after the hair transplant procedure.

In traditional follicular unit hair transplantation (FUT) there is always a thin linear scar where the hair was removed.  The area is usually covered by the surrounding hair, however, if a patient later shaves his head or crops it very short the linear scar may be visible. This is not the case with FUE since every follicular unit is individually extracted leaving the donor area virtually scarless.

Because the follicular unit extraction allows for a more shallow graft extraction, the procedure is often more comfortable and recovery is quicker than traditional hair transplant methods.

If you are vacationing and want to go home a winner, consider a Las Vegas FUE procedure with Dr. Bruce Marko, a ‘Board Certified Hair Restoration Surgeon’ with fifteen years experience and thousands of procedures performed. A Las Vegas FUE procedure is a smart way to go, because you can return home from your Vegas vacation with more hair!

Advanced Hair Transplants offers Las Vegas FUE hair transplant surgery at our Surgical Facility located at 2779 Sunridge Heights, Suite 100, Henderson, NV 89052.  Patients fly from across the U.S., Canada, and Europe for an FUE Hair Transplant, and we do offer Travel Reimbursement to all of our patients who travel more than 100 miles for the procedure.

FUE Hair Transplant is not for everyone. To be performed properly, the patient may need more procedures than traditional strip FUT.  Also, a larger area of donor must be shaved which may not be cosmetically desirable for many patients. During your consultation we will present all options and recommend the best approach for your particular situation.

It is estimated that 35 million men in the United States are affected by male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia. “Andro” refers to the androgens (testosterone, dihydrotestosterone) necessary to produce male-pattern hair loss (MPHL). “Genetic” refers to the inherited gene necessary for MPHL to occur. In men who develop male pattern baldness the hair loss may begin any time after puberty when blood levels of androgens rise. The first change is usually recession in the temporal areas, which is seen in 96 percent of mature Caucasian males, including those men not destined to progress to further hair loss.

Hamilton and later Norwood have classified the patterns of male pattern baldness (see illustration below). Although the density of hair in a given pattern of loss tends to diminish with age, there is no way to predict what pattern of hair loss a young man with early male pattern baldness will eventually assume. In general, those who begin losing hair in the second decade are those in whom the hair loss will be the most severe. In some men, initial male-pattern hair loss may be delayed until the late third to fourth decade. It is generally recognized that men in their 20’s have a 20 percent incidence of male pattern baldness, in their 30’s a 30 percent incidence of male pattern baldness, in their 40’s a 40 percent incidence of male pattern baldness, etc. Using these numbers one can see that a male in his 90’s has a 90 percent chance of having some degree of male pattern baldness.

Hamilton first noted that androgens (testosterone, dihydrotestosterone) are necessary for the development of male pattern baldness. The amount of androgens present does not need to be greater than normal for male pattern baldness to occur. If androgens are present in normal amounts and the gene for hair loss is present, male pattern hair loss will occur. Axillary (under arm) and pubic hair are dependent on testosterone for growth. Beard growth and male pattern hair loss are dependent on dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Testosterone is converted to DHT by the enzyme, 5¤ -reductase. Finasteride (Propecia®) acts by blocking this enzyme and decreasing the amount of DHT. Receptors exist on cells that bind androgens. These receptors have the greatest affinity for DHT followed by testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone. After binding to the receptor, DHT goes into the cell and interacts with the nucleus of the cell altering the production of protein by the DNA in the nucleus of the cell. Ultimately growth of the hair follicle ceases.

The hair growth cycle is affected in that the percentage of hairs in the growth phase (anagen) and the duration of the growth phase diminish resulting in shorter hairs. More hairs are in the resting state (telogen) and these hairs are much more subject to loss with the daily trauma of combing and washing. The hair shafts in male pattern baldness become progressively miniaturized, (see hair follicle miniaturization illustration) smaller in diameter and length, with time. In men with male pattern baldness all the hairs in an affected area may eventually (but not necessarily) become involved in the process and may with time cover the region with fine (vellus) hair. Pigment (color) production is also terminated with miniaturization so the fine hair becomes lighter in color. The lighter color, miniaturized hairs cause the area to first appear thin. Involved areas in men can completely lose all follicles over time. Male pattern baldness is an inherited condition and the gene can be inherited from either the mother or father’s side. There is a common myth that inheritance is only from the mother’s side. This is not true.

In summary, male pattern hair loss (Androgenetic Alopecia) is an inherited condition manifested when androgens are present in normal amounts. The gene can be inherited from the mother or father’s side. The onset, rate, and severity of hair loss are unpredictable. The severity increases with age and if the condition is present it will be progressive and relentless.

Hair loss in men is likely to occur primarily between late teen-age years and age 40-50, in a generally recognizable “male-pattern” baldness known as androgenetic alopecia. Men with male-pattern hair loss may have an expectation of hair loss if they have male relatives who lost hair in a recognizably male pattern.
