See Me, Not My Scar – Restoring Hair to a Head Trauma Patient Other Surgeons Turned Away

It had been several years since the motorcycle accident that almost cost K.J. his life. Suffering severe head trauma, he was unconscious in his hospital bed when the doctor told his wife to prepare herself for the worst. But the 40-year-old husband and father fought to live, eventually making a recovery that stunned the doctor who had made the grim prognosis. Now, the only visible sign of his injury was the surgical scar and slightly recessed area where steel plates held a piece of his skull in place. Ready to move forward and make the most of his second chance at life, K.J. wanted to take the final step in healing: restoring his hair.

 

Although K.J.’s story may seem easy to sum up in one paragraph, his journey was grueling, with setbacks along the way. The injury necessitated removing a heart-shaped piece of skull, which was preserved for future replacement. The plate that was originally placed over the area also had to be removed because of high intracranial pressure – a life-threatening development. After he was out of immediate danger, K.J. underwent physical rehabilitation and wore a protective wrestler’s helmet for six weeks prior to surgery to replace the section of bone.

 

“It was pretty intense,” K.J. recalled. “For some crazy reason, I’m still here.”

 

K.J.’s next contact with the medical field was voluntary. Learning about the Orlando Live Surgery Workshop – a conference of hair restoration surgeons sponsored by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) – he submitted his case for consideration. Having attended full of hope, his heart began to sink as surgeon after surgeon declined to treat him.

 

Until Dr. Marco Barusco, Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Tempus Hair Restoration, reviewed K.J.’s case and examined his scars – then gave K.J. the answer he had long been awaiting: he was a candidate for hair transplant surgery.

 

What did Dr. Barusco see that the other surgeons had missed? The deciding factor wasn’t so much what they didn’t see, as what they were unable to do.

 

“(The patient’s) case was difficult, and posed a higher risk of serious complications due to the surgeries he had for his head trauma,” said Dr. Barusco. “Particularly the reconstruction of his skull with a synthetic material, which was placed under the area to be transplanted. This made the procedure of transplanting hair more challenging and risky. Most other doctors don’t have the experience or the facilities to perform this procedure under sterile conditions, and with the pre- and post-operative preparations that were needed to do it safely.”

 

However, K.J. would have to wait a little longer for the complete restoration of his appearance. Because Dr. Barusco determined the surgery required more controlled conditions than the live surgery workshop provided to minimize the risk of infection, Dr. Barusco performed K.J.’s hair transplant surgery at Tempus Hair’s Port Orange location, which is designed to provide patients with a safe and comfortable surgical experience.

 

Dr. Barusco chose the Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) procedure on K.J., which he determined would achieve the best results. “Due to his various scalp scars, the safe area for donor hair harvesting was limited to the back and right areas of his scalp,” said Dr. Barusco. “An FUT was recommended in order to move more hair in one procedure.”

 

 

“I had quite a bit of hair loss,” said K.J. “But I started seeing results about six months after the transplant, with full growth after one year. I could hardly believe it! The scarring is covered, and the growth pattern looks natural. Before, I felt like people saw the scar before they saw me.”

 

When asked what motivated him to undergo one more surgical procedure after he’d been through so many, K.J. reflected:  “I wanted to move on in life. When I see people with scarring, I can relate to what they’ve been through. My life is back to normal. I have my wife and my friends. Once you have hope and the will to survive, you make changes. I work out at the gym five days a week, and lead a healthy lifestyle. I’m in better shape now than when I was 40!”

 

In fact, K.J. recently returned to Tempus Hair Restoration for the same reason as the vast majority of Dr. Barusco’s other patients who trust themselves to his care – to treat standard, typical hair loss.

 

“When you start feeling more confident, you want to keep that feeling,” said K.J. “Dr. Barusco is just a phenomenal surgeon. I highly recommend him. He and his staff were very supportive. Dr. Barusco did his research and took his time.”

 

As remarkable as K.J.’s experience was, he is not the only patient with a challenging situation who Dr. Barusco has successfully treated. In fact, Dr. Barusco created a pre- and post-operative protocol designed to increase safety in these types of procedures. This protocol was published in a scientific journal and in a medical textbook, and today is used by many doctors in the field.

 

We invite you to visit our Before & After Gallery to see a wide range of inspiring results – then schedule a free, no obligation consultation with Dr. Barusco at one of our locations, or by video conference to learn your options. We look forward to meeting you, and helping you achieve the self-confidence to live your best life!

Advanced Treatments for Non-Pattern Hair Loss

Non-patterned Hair Loss – Causes and Treatments

The stages of hair loss typically follow one of several common patterns – from a receding hairline to the classical horseshoe to the central bald spot. While genetics is the leading cause of male pattern baldness, some types of hair loss occur outside of this category. Hair falling out in patches or during a relatively short time period can have a number of causes, making non-patterned hair loss challenging to treat, as well as frustrating and troubling to those suffering from it. Learning to identify the various characteristics of non-patterned loss can lead to a quicker diagnosis and effective treatment.

As cited by WebMD, heredity accounts for 95 percent of all the cases of alopecia (baldness) in the United States. The remaining five percent can be due to a number of factors, including:

Diet – Unusually high levels of vitamin A or low levels of iron or protein. Iron is essential for the production of hair protein.

Illness – Thyroid disease, severe infection or flu.

Medications – Drugs used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure), heart problems, depression or gout; birth control pills.

Hormonal imbalances – Changes in female hormone levels during pregnancy or menopause. Also, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that can cause hair loss by increasing levels of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

Stress – One of the most common causes of non-patterned hair loss, stress can trigger production of higher androgen levels. Androgens can attack the hair growth cycle and shorten it, which can cause hair loss.

Recognizing Alopecia Areata

Often mistaken as stress-related hair loss, alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder that causes the immune system to attack hair follicles. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), alopecia areata can cause different types of hair loss: alopecia areata (hair loss in patches), alopecia totalis (total hair loss on the scalp) and alopecia universalis (hair loss on the entire body).

The AAD notes that alopecia areata in all of its variations is not due to nerves, and most often occurs in otherwise healthy people. Hair typically grows back, but can fall out again.

The National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF) is a resource for those living with this condition. The NAAF states that although there are currently no treatments that work for everyone, some are effective for some people, depending on which type of alopecia areata is involved, the patient’s age and the extent of hair loss.

The main goals of treatment are to block the immune system’s attack and/or to stimulate hair regrowth. According to the NAAF, this can be effective, especially for those with less than 50 percent hair loss. For those with greater than 50 percent loss, oral and topical medications are available, as well as phototherapy (light treatments).

Recognizing Traction Alopecia

Traction alopecia is a type of hair loss that occurs over time. It is caused by putting the hair under constant strain or tension, and usually results from wearing hair in very tight ponytails, pigtails, tight braids or cornrows. As more hair falls out, sufferers tend to attempt to mask the issue through weaves and hair extensions – which sets up a vicious cycle that worsens the condition.

This was the case with J.D. – a patient of Dr. Marco Barusco who sought treatment for her traction alopecia, made worse by the weaves she used to create the appearance of a full head of hair. In her job as a pharmaceutical representative, presenting a polished, professional image is essential, which led J.D. to research hair restoration specialists before scheduling an appointment at Tempus Hair Restoration. After a successful treatment program, J.D. is now proud to let her natural hair represent her self-confidence to the world. And she is not wearing tight ponytails anymore.

Treatments For Non-Patterned Hair Loss

Unlike male and female pattern baldness, the cause of each individual case of non-patterned hair loss is different. A diagnosis by a licensed physician who has experience with hair loss needs to be made in order for a course of treatment to be planned. While you may suspect a cause, attempting to treat non-patterned hair loss without a diagnosis can make the condition worse – or at the very least, delay effective treatment and the desired outcome of healthy hair.

Dr. Barusco has over 20 years of experience treating all types of hair loss – including non-patterned. His professional credentials include: Diplomate and Past President (2017) of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery; Assistant Professor of Surgery – University of Central Florida College of Medicine; Fellow of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) and Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS).

We offer the latest, most advanced treatments available for non-patterned hair loss. Our blog post, “Non-surgical Treatments for Hair Restoration,” discusses prescription medications and other treatments our practice utilizes, depending upon the individual patient’s case.

If you are suffering with non-patterned hair loss, schedule a free consultation with Dr. Barusco. Unlike many other hair restoration practices, Dr. Barusco conducts all consultations (both in-office and virtually) himself, and performs all procedures.

Should you be reading this article outside of the areas served by our 14 offices throughout Florida, we can make arrangements for a virtual consultation with Dr. Barusco. For your convenience, consultations are offered in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Dr. Barusco and our staff look forward to meeting you, and helping you get the right treatment for your type of hair loss.

Why Do Hair Transplants Go Wrong?

Why Do Hair Transplants Go Wrong?

Hair plays a major role in one’s self-esteem. During various periods throughout history, elaborate wigs were signs of status and wealth – for obvious reasons. Today, instead of covering hair loss with a full or partial hairpiece, hair transplant surgery is readily available and within the economic reach of many. However, such availability comes at a high price for those who make the wrong choice in the doctor who performs the procedure, ranging from severe scarring to unnatural growth patterns of new hair.

Many factors can contribute to bad hair transplants. The following are the most prevalent.

Inexperienced Surgeons Can Cause Errors

The main reason for an unsuccessful hair transplant is selecting an unqualified doctor. Many are not certified by the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery. Such patients face the risks of surgical complications, scarring and infections. Many patients choose a doctor based on their advertising campaign, extravagant promises of results or low cost (or any or all of these). Also, at many clinics, the doctor (who may not even be on the premises at the time of surgery) allows technicians to harvest grafts or perform other procedures for which they have no medical qualifications.

Dr. Marco Barusco – founder and Chief Medical Officer of Tempus Hair Restoration – is a board-certified surgeon who is internationally recognized as a leader in hair restoration. His many credentials include: Diplomate and Past President (2017) of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery; Assistant Professor of Surgery – University of Central Florida College of Medicine; Fellow of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) and Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS). He most recently received American Registry’s America’s Most Honored Professionals 2018 award and was recognized as being in the top one-percent of this distinguished group.

One of the most important stages of a hair restoration process is graft placement, as it determines the outcome of the final appearance of the patient. If this stage does not take place properly, the procedure will fail. It is easier for inexperienced doctors to make mistakes when trying to determine the safe donor site located on the back of the patient’s head, where the healthy follicles are extracted. Overharvesting could cause significant damage in the donor zone and result in a catastrophic outcome.

Hair Loss Types

Not knowing which hair transplant procedure is best for your type of hair loss could lead to disaster. Topics such as surgical treatments and post-operative stages are important to discuss with your surgeon prior to undergoing treatment. A surgeon with limited experience may only perform the procedure he is familiar with, assembly line-style, whether or not it is right for you. In addition, less experienced surgeons are often not up-to-date with newer (yet clinically proven) technologies and surgical procedures that could achieve superior results.

Sometimes, the degree of hair loss may not be enough for the patient to be an appropriate candidate for hair transplant surgery, yet recommended for the procedure. When asked about consulting young patients (early 20s) suffering from hair loss, Dr. Barusco explained: “They’re usually not the best candidates for surgery because of the potential for progression of hair loss. My approach with the young patients is to delay surgery, bring force to medical therapy, keep following them over a year, two, five, ten years until I think they’re ready for the procedure.” Timing is crucial. If you don’t seek the procedure at the right stage of your hair loss, it could result in a very odd-looking appearance.

Causes of Hair Loss

Another factor in determining the need for hair restoration surgery is medical condition. Hair loss may be due to many non-hereditary elements, such as stress, weight loss or hormonal imbalance. In such cases, hair loss is usually temporary. A poorly qualified doctor or unqualified clinician may misdiagnose a non-hereditary cause and perform a transplant. An unethical doctor may recognize the cause, but perform the procedure anyway.

Can a Bad Hair Transplant Be Fixed?

Every patient who undergoes any type of medical treatment is unique, and may have different results. Dr. Barusco has met several patients who have dealt with poor outcomes. When asked about how he approaches this situation, he said: “Sometimes I can help them, but sometimes I can’t. A bad liposuction or a bad breast surgery can at least be hidden from view. A bad hair transplant cannot. And what is even worse, is that these patients are coming to me not only with poor results on their hairline, but also terrible scarring and thinning in their donor hair (the limited supply of permanent hair we use for transplants) caused by taking too many hair incisions that are larger than they should be.”

At Tempus Hair Restoration, Dr. Barusco performs every procedure himself. Our team pays great attention to your emotional well-being and follows up with every step of the procedure to ensure you are well-informed and directed in the right path. Our consultation is free. Dr. Barusco will discuss the different treatments available and will recommend the one that will work best for you. Depending on the cause of your hair loss, a non-surgical treatment course could be successful.

The pain, scarring, emotional distress and considerable additional expense of a bad hair transplant can be avoided by performing due diligence in the process of selecting a surgeon. Check credentials with professional accreditation organizations, such as those listed in the fourth paragraph of this article. Don’t hesitate to ask questions during the consultation – and make sure your consultation is with the surgeon, not a salesperson. ISHRS provides an excellent list of questions to bring up, including: Who will be involved in performing my surgery, what role will they play, and what is their education, training, licensure, and experience performing hair restoration surgery?

Choose your surgeon carefully based on experience, results and integrity. Dr. Barusco’s long list of accomplishments, his notable artistic ability and his successful surgical team make Tempus Hair Restoration a renowned practice. Dr. Barusco also conducts virtual consultations for those who can’t travel to one of our 14 Florida locations, and our office will arrange travel and accommodations for out-of-area patients. We invite you to learn more about our procedures, then contact us to schedule your free consultation with Dr. Barusco. We look forward to meeting you and discussing your options.

An Affordable Hair Transplant that Doesn’t Sacrifice Quality

Sufferers of hair loss understand that it can have a big impact on one’s self-esteem, especially at a younger age. Hair is often perceived as a sign of youth, beauty, and virility. When someone loses it, they may feel like they have had many aspects of their lives taken from them.

That can in turn interfere with their work performance, personality, and charisma, affecting their social and professional lives. Despite all of these psychological effects, insurance companies still see hair restoration as a “cosmetic procedure.” That means they will not cover it.

While doing your research in this procedure and the doctors who perform it, you may be tempted to look for a bargain and go with someone who has less experience or who does not perform only hair restoration. While the procedure may seem simple enough, (it isn’t like they’re operating on your brain), there are still plenty of things that can go wrong; you can avoid them with a more skilled surgeon. Poorly performed hair transplants can lead to infection, the hair may grow properly, or the results may not look natural. Dr. Barusco has met many patients who have suffered from these complications.

“Sometimes I can help them, but sometimes I can’t. A bad liposuction or a bad breast surgery can at least be hidden from view. A bad hair transplant cannot. And what is even worse, is that these patients are coming to me not only with poor results on their hairline, but also terrible scarring and thinning of their donor hair (the limited supply of permanent hair we use for transplants) caused by taking too many hairs with incisions that are larger than they should be.”

That is why, as in any procedure, you want to look for someone who has experience, quality, and artistic ability, who knows what can go wrong and how to avoid it.

Dr. Barusco is an internationally recognized surgeon, with over 20 years of experience in hair restoration procedures. Elected as the President of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery in 2017, he focuses on innovative procedures with natural-looking results. He has written chapters in multiple textbooks on the Tempus No-Shave FUE, the Crown-Hatching Technique that he created and on complications in hair transplantation.

But with an experienced surgeon such as Dr. Barusco, you may be concerned about costs. First, every consultation is performed by Dr. Barusco and it is free. There are no fees for speaking with us. After Dr. Barusco makes an individualized recommendation based on your situation and goals, you will meet with one of our patient educators, who will discuss the costs of what Dr. Barusco has prescribed. If you need to finance the procedure, we offer special 6 and 12-month financing plans with no interest. We are very transparent on the cost of our services, and what you see on the bill is what you will pay in the end. And remember, this isn’t a frivolous purchase; it is a lifetime investment. You will keep this hair for life.

At Tempus, we make our procedures affordable without compromising our quality. We aren’t a one-stop shop for cosmetic surgeries. We focus on hair restoration alone, because that is an important issue that deserves undivided attention. We want to help you get your life back. So schedule your free consultation today, and let’s talk about how we can help.

American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery Awards Dr. Barusco

When you look up the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery online and select the “About Us” tab the first thing that pops up is “Commitment to Hair Restoration Excellence and Safety”. Tempus Hair Restoration is proud to not only be members of this great organization but our very own Dr. Marco Barusco was recently rewarded with a beautiful crystal plaque from the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery. He is finishing up his year as their President. “It was been a great honor to have been entrusted with this responsibility. Me and my team are looking forward to continuing to be involved with this great institution,” said Dr. Barusco.

(1) The need for the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS) first surfaced in June 1995 at a Hair Replacement Surgery Seminar in Chicago. A group of speakers began discussing the need for a certifying board in hair replacement surgery. The discussion during the subsequent twelve months became more resolute as the press began to focus on hair replacement surgery, due to the many sensational stories on television and in print. In 1996, the American Hair Loss Council (AHLC) invited all of the specialty groups whose physicians performed hair restoration surgery to participate in a meeting to discuss the development of a Board Certification process for hair restoration surgery. The presidents of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery were each invited to send three representatives to a meeting to discuss the development of a certification process.

Now with multiple examinations administered, the ABHRS exam stands as the ONLY psychometrically and statistically validated examination dedicated to the specialty of hair restoration surgery.

We recommend that when choosing your surgeon for your hair replacement procedures that you see if they are involved with the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery.

Patients from MD Anderson Cancer Center and the Mayo Clinic

At Tempus Hair Restoration, our expertise in treating patients with traumatic hair loss and hair loss caused by cancer is being recognized by some of the major medical institutions in the United States. This past month we treated two patients who had radiation treatment to their scalps for brain tumors. These patients found Dr. Barusco from referrals from MD Anderson Cancer Center and the Mayo Clinic. “I am proud of my team for the excellent work that they do and for being recognized internationally by some of the leading medical institutions in the country.

Things to Keep In Mind

You need a medical professional’s expertise to avoid any potential harm to sensitive areas that may still be healing. You also need a surgeon who understands your delicate needs. Many times Dr. Barusco will request additional testing to be sure you’re body is ready for the procedure.
