Hairless Hollywood: Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt may be everyone’s go-to leading man, but how much of that is thanks to his perfect hairline? We think that a bald Brad would have a very different career! Fortunately for Brad, his hair is in perfect condition–but if it weren’t, he’d still have plenty of options to get back his A-list good looks! Brad may want to consider a Celebrity FUE Transplant, in order to decrease downtime following treatment, as well as to minimize scarring. We know that Angelina would definitely approve!

Q&A: What do I need to know before an ARTAS hair transplant?

Q: Hi, Dr. Mohebi! I saw you’re working with the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system, and I think the idea of a machine doing the transplant is really exciting, but I’d like to know more about it before I fully commit to it. Thank you!   A: ARTAS is a robotic device that can help a surgeon extract hair in a more automated way during an FUE procedure. ARTAS is a great option for prospective transplant patients! It can expedite the graft-harvesting process and minimize the human error. This is important for clinics who are not doing FUE on a […]

Q&A: Donor Hair Requirements

Q: Hi, Doctor! I had a few questions to ask about hair restoration… First of all: When you’re doing a hair transplant, are there requirements for the hair length on the donor site(s)? Does it need to be cut short? And can hair be left long where the grafts are being implanted? And secondly: Does having curly hair complicate the procedure? Is there a risk of ingrown hairs or any other issues?   A: These are a couple very good questions! For your first one: There are no length requirements for the donor site or the implantation site. We shave a very tiny part of the […]

Q&A: Does Hair Continue to Thin After Hair Transplant?

cost of fue transplant

  Q: Hi, Doctor! One thing I’ve always wondered is this: If someone has thinning hair (around the temples, for example), and has a hair transplant done, essentially getting back the hairline they lost, I’d imagine it would look great and natural at first. But, would the hair loss continue from the previous point? Like, you’d have great hair for an inch and then suddenly thinning parts? If this is the case, then how do doctors and patients prepare for this inevitability? I don’t want to get a transplant if it just means that I’m going to be losing my […]

Introduction of ARTAS to Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration

In the last few years, we at Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration have monitored the evolution of one of the newest hair restoration technologies available, Robotic Hair Restoration.  The ARTAS system offers a machinery that facilitates the extraction of hair follicles individually and with accuracy from the patient’s scalp.” ARTAS has made the extraction of FUE grafts automated, but up until recently the speed of which the device extracted these grafts could not match the speed of our manual extractions.  Furthermore, the ARTAS was handicapped by the larger diameter of its punches when compared to manual methods. However, in keeping its […]

Q&A: Hair Loss After Face Lift

  Q: Hi, Doctor! I had a face lift a little while ago (I’m a post-menopausal woman) and I was just a little concerned about how the surgery may have affected me in ways I wasn’t prepared for. The hair around my post-surgical scar and temples has yet to grow back. I take HRT, and am generally in very good health. Though I’ve tried many topical treatments, nothing has worked! The hair at the back of my head is still in perfectly fine condition. What could I do to fix this? A: Great question! It is not uncommon for patients […]

Q & A: Hair Transplants for Younger Patients

Q: Hey Doc. Can I get your official thoughts on younger guys (Ages 19-26, but particularly guys in the 20s age range) getting hair transplants? That’s a question that comes up quite a bit and the general consensus seems to be to not get a hair transplant that young—that they should wait until they are at least in their late 20s or early 30s and their hairline has matured and the hair loss has stabilized. They also seem to recommend starting finasteride at that age to hopefully help halt the hair loss. Is this something you agree with? What is […]
