Celebrity FUE Transplant Procedure

Celebrity FUE Transplant offered at Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration is a type of FUE transplant in which we remove hair units individually without the need to shave the entire back of head and transplant them one at a time. This outpatient procedure that takes not more than 3-4 hours allow the person to maintain his/her hair look with no obvious sign of surgery. The process is more gradual because we limit the number of grafts to four to five hundred at a time. That is exactly what most celebrities prefer and choose. They enjoy the benefit of a gradual transformation with minimal interruption […]

What to Expect from my Second Hair Transplant?

Q: Dr. Mohebi, We discussed a second procedure several months ago to increase density. I was told about 1500 grafts would be necessary. I’d like to get a better idea of what level of density I can expect. Is there a way to show me an example from another patient, or compare it to another area of my hair so I can set my expectations accurately? Thanks,  A: Generally, one hair transplant creates about 35-40% density in the areas that we dense pack. Although the appearance of baldness is eliminated in most cases, the density you once had may not […]

FUE and SMP for Hair Transplant Scar Revision

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) could be both used to minimize the visibility of the scalp scars after a strip hair transplant procedure.  At Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration, we offer both these techniques.  However, there are pros and cons to each that the patients need to know before proceeding with the procedure. FUE for Scar Revision Since the extraction of individual follicular units (FUs) is done individually it is perfect for the small procedure of revisioning a hair transplant scar from a previous hair transplant. The surgeon can extract a small number of grafts from the permanent zone […]

Finasteride and Hair Transplant

Q: I started the hair medication finasteride. Will this help stop me losing more hair? I was concerned that if you restored my hairline would I need to do another surgery in years to come if my hair continues to thin and fade behind where the restoration was done? There are many stories on the internet of people that have had multiple surgeries (other doctors) and they are still not satisfied so I just wanted to take the opportunity to gather as much information and ask the appropriate corresponding questions so I can make the most educated decision. A: While […]

Doctor, Is There Any Hope for Me?

A few days ago, I have seen a patient in my office whom I did not recognize. After, reviewing his file, I remembered that he was a patient that we transplanted about a year before. He could not come to see us at his 6 months follow up after his hair transplantation. Now, after a year from the time we performed his hair transplant, he was completely transformed to the point that it was difficult for me to remember him. I reviewed my notes from the first time I met him in our Los Angeles Hair Restoration Center. I had […]

When Can I Expect the Scabs to Be Gone After a Hair Transplant

Q: Dr. Mohebi, From some of the hair transplant before and after photos I have seen from various clinic sites it looks like scabbing lasts up to 14 days. I only state this because you and I discussed not needing more than 4 to 6 days max for preliminary recovery from hair transplant surgery. I just want to make sure that I am allowing enough time as I work in a very high profile visible atmosphere. A: In some instances, the scabbing after a hair transplantation may stay for periods of up to two weeks or more if left alone. […]

Pros & Cons of FUE and ARTAS Procedures

Q: Dr. Mohebi There seems to be a lot of talk on the internet about FUE and ARTAS procedures. Can you explain to me what the pros and cons are of these types of procedure vs the strip technique? A: We perform both ‘Strip Method’ and FUE transplants in our practice. Both of these procedures are the most modern forms of Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) for hair restoration. FUE procedure could be done through different techniques such as manual and automated. ARTAS is a FUE machine that harvests Follicular units by a robotic arm. Since the robot removes the hair grafts, […]

Neck Hair Transplant for Refined Hair Line

Q: I read that some clinic’s use hair from the nap of the neck to help create a more natural hairline. Is this a technique that you practice or something you think is not necessary? A: The neck hair is not permanent in many people. This means it too can be susceptible to the adverse effects of DHT as a person goes through the process of balding by aging. We do not use neck hair nor do we recommend it for hair transplants. If hair transplantation is done with the right design and standard techniques, it should not be detectable […]
