What does it mean to have a Miami hair transplant doctor that has been involved with his speciality since he was five years old? It means he probably has a stronger grasp of his trade than most hair transplant doctors working today. I’d like to introduce Dr. Aron Nusbaum of Miami Hair Institute in Coral Gables, Florida.
I know it sounds unusual. How can a Miami hair transplant doctor have had experience with hair restoration since he was five? As it turns out, Aron Nusbaum MD is the son of Dr. Bernard Nusbaum. He’s one of the original better doctors from the late 80’s, 90’s and early 2000’s when hair restoration quality was still on an upward trajectory. Aron Nusbaum would spend time in the clinic and even play with the microscopes while Dad worked. As Aron got older he’d come in and help out in the clinic as a technician and he knew early on that medicine was his future and hair transplant surgery was his destiny.
I’ve enjoyed speaking with Aron Nusbaum MD during his review process, and since. One of the things I’ve learned is why he has mastered the art of creating naturalness so early in his career. “I learned early on from my Dad, and from Dr. Paul Rose (his partner) that if anything, the result has to look like it isn’t a hair transplant”. This was drilled into him from early on in his career, before he even began his training. Obviously it makes sense and knowing what I know about his father and Dr. Paul Rose, he received not only the right advice, but the right training from experienced senior doctors in the industry.
Aron Nusbaum, MD is not his father, however. Dr. Nusbaum has taken a direction in the hair restoration industry not seen by many of his colleagues with high levels of success. More specifically, he has become extremely proficient with both FUT and FUE hair restoration. Further, his FUE approach involves multiple modalities that he’s able to employ for when specific circumstances call for them. His go to choice for FUE hair transplant surgery is the ARTAS robotic FUE system by Restoration Robotics. To be honest, this is what I first noticed about him because I was impressed by both the naturalness he was able to achieve using this tool and the donor regions of his many ARTAS patients looked impeccably managed. This is what told me that Dr. Aron Nusbaum understood proper donor management with a tool that most doctors tend to misunderstand.
If FUT is more suited to a patient’s physiology and hair restoration goals, he’s well in tune with the intricacies that this procedure presents. FUT is a far more in depth procedure with regards to being a “surgery” than FUE simply due to the invasiveness of the procedure. This doesn’t necessarily make it inferior to FUE, but it does mean it requires actual surgical skill not required for FUE. I know from personal experience in the OR, using a scalpel properly in this industry is an art form in unto itself and when performed properly it can be a phenomenal approach for the patient.
When it comes to non-surgical hair restoration options, Dr. Aron Nusbaum is well versed, and experienced, in the latest technologies. In fact, he made regenerative medicine one of his specialities when he was in medical school at the University of Miami. He has been published in peer reviewed journals such as the Dermatologic Surgery journal among others, and this demonstrates that he understands the science that goes into such options. In fact, a study was carried out by Miami Hair institute showing that most of the centrifuges being used in PRP treatments today were not delivering what they promised with regards to output. It was concluded that this alone can be a reason why many clinics struggle to find success with their regenerative medicine protocols.
Dr. Aron Nusbaum is also highly in tune with hair transplant patient education as he’s a huge proponent of surgery being the last resort. He encourages his patients to seek non-surgical alternatives first in order to potentially eliminate, or at the very least, postpone the need for surgery. Taking this route helps to insure that patients will reduce or even eliminate continued hair loss, thus making any surgical outcome that much more successful over the long term. Hair transplant surgery does not prevent existing hair from continuing to fall out so prevention is the key to maximum surgical satisfaction.
Dr. Aron Nusbaum is an exceptional talent as a Miami Hair transplant doctor and he has a long career ahead of him as a future leader in the hair restoration field
