Hair Transplant in a Woman with Female Hair Loss

I visited a woman today who was suffering from female patterned baldness. She said she heard about the great work we do and she was interested in having a hair transplant procedure done at Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration. Since her hair thinning pattern was typical of hair loss in women with female patterned baldness (also called female patterned alopecia) I decided to post this article on women’s hair loss and hair transplant to answer some of the questions many women have pertaining to female hair loss. Our hair loss patient was around 50 years old with a history of hair loss […]

Beverly Hills Hair Transplant

    I have been asked many times why we opened our first Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration office in Encino and not Beverly Hills. The choice to open the Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration clinic in Encino was made mainly to have a location, which would be convenient for all Los Angeles County. Our Hair Transplant Clinic is located in the center of San Fernando Valley, close to Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills and Tarzana and it is easily accessible from Beverly Hills (BH), Santa Monica, West LA, North Hollywood and North Hollywood, and even downtown Los Angeles (LA).  Beverly Hills has become one of the […]

My Doctor Is Going To Clone My Hair

I met an internist friend today and he asked me whether or not I do hair cloning for my patients. Obviously my answer was no. He mentioned that Dr. X does offer cloning to his patients and in fact plans on doing it for one of his current patients. My comment is this: The field of hair transplant surgery is a buyer beware market; just like any other fields in cosmetic surgery. I have heard many doctors calling themselves a pioneer on this and that technique. If your doctor told you that he or she is the inventor of some […]

I Shed Thick Hair

Dear Dr. Mohebi, How is everything Dr.? I actually came across something, which might seem a little silly to you. (haha) As the follicle deteriorates, the hair becomes thinner, correct? and this leads to the dying of the hair follicle and hair can’t be grown, right? I have noticed lately that when I shed, the hair is not really thin. Actually the quality of my hair according to my father has improved. Thick hair means that the follicle is still healthy and contains the vital nutrients. Now to sum everything up, even though I still experience hair loss with decent […]

Laser Comb for Treatment of Hair Loss

Question: Dear Dr. Mohebi, I would like to thank you for your response. I really don’t know what life without you would be like, someone who can answer all my questions. It is funny because when I turn to other people the smartest thing they have to say is I don’t know.  Thank you again for everything. I wish you all the health and success for you and your family for the new year and the ones to come. One very last question, before 2008. (haha) What do you think about the laser hair combs with low level of laser […]

22 Year Old with Stage Three Hair Loss

Question: I am a 22 year old white male with some recession in the corners that has been bothering me in the last two years. Am I eligible for a hair transplant procedure? Answer: I generally don‚Äôt recommend hair transplant before the age 24 (with some exceptions). We need to have a better understanding of the pattern of your hair loss before coming up with a surgical plan. If you are destined to become a stage VII (advanced stages of hair loss) the plan should be totally different than if you are going to stop at stage III. We can […]
