Dr. Mohebi’s Innovations in Hair Transplant Technologies

The future of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant has arrived. Thanks to the efforts and innovations of some of the best hair transplant doctors across the globe, including former Johns Hopkins research fellow Dr. Parsa Mohebi, new hair transplantation technology and methods are constantly being developed and implemented. Many of these developments are improvements on previous tried-and-true techniques which, in turn, help to increase the accuracy and efficiency of modern hair restoration.

Celebrity Hair Transplant™ by Dr. Parsa Mohebi

Dr. Mohebi has always interested in devising a method that minimizes the total time involved in performing a hair transplant as well as eliminating the downtime after a hair restoration procedure is over. Celebrity Hair Transplant™ by Dr. Parsa Mohebi, which was developed by Dr. Mohebi, in our Los Angeles hair restoration center has always been desired by Hollywood celebrities who cannot afford the downtime or detectability of a traditional hair restoration procedure. Celebrity Hair Transplant™ by Dr. Parsa Mohebi was born to make hair restoration less invasive and more secretive.  Learn more about how Celebrity Hair Transplant™ by Dr. Parsa Mohebi is performed.

Simultaneous Extraction and Placement

As FUE becomes more popular, it becomes more critical to learn how to optimize the quality and survivability of FUE grafts.  Simultaneous Extraction and Placement technique in hair restoration was pioneered by Dr. Mohebi to minimize trauma and stress to the follicular grafts. Hair grafts are live tissues that can get hurt due to many stress factors such as heat, dryness and manipulation trauma. Dr. Mohebi presented the serial extraction and placement of FUE grafts in which he reduced the average time that each FUE graft stays out of the body to less than 2 hours. Read more about Serial Extraction and Placement Technique. That method was the first step in evolving Simultaneous Extraction and Placement Method that was introduced to the hair restoration field for the first time by Dr. Mohebi.

Serial Extraction and Placement Technique

Dr. Mohebi remains committed to making hair transplant surgery as efficient and effective as possible.  One of his latest innovations is the Serial Extraction and Placement Technique which allows the surgical team to work in sequences while also implanting FUE grafts in the scalp as soon as possible once they are removed from the donor area. This technique reduces the out-of-body time of the hair grafts while also increasing their overall survival rate. Overall, this hair transplant technique increases the viability of the transplanted hair grafts.

Mohebi Implanter (Inserter)

Simultaneous Extraction and Placement has changed many aspects of hair restoration at Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration. It has certainly affected many other innovations that came after its creation. One of those innovations was Mohebi Implanter (Inserter) that was invented by Dr. Parsa Mohebi. Mohebi Implanter (Inserter) minimizes the manipulative forces that may injure the bulb of the follicles. This device also improves the efficiency of the graft implantation process by allowing the technicians to load and implant the grafts without holding them with a forceps. Dr. Mohebi’s article on Mohebi Inserter was published in Hair Transplant Forum International on August 2018 as: A Novel Device to Insert Follicular Unit Grafts.


Dr. Mohebi noticed the problems that many people had with more traditional types of hair transplants such as Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) strip procedures. Donor wound complications due to a misjudgment of donor closure tension was one major problem causing issues such as stretching of the scar, hair loss around the wounds and necrosis in its most severe forms.  All of these conditions were secondary to removing too much scalp skin and closing the wound under tension.  Doctor Mohebi devised a solution to prevent donor complications after strip hair transplant.  His invention of the Laxometer helps hair transplant surgeons measure the mobility of the scalp and determine an optimum size strip that can be removed to minimize donor complications.

Hair Multiplication

Dr. Mohebi has always been interested in expanding the human hair follicle reserve so he could help everyone with hair loss enjoy a life with a full head of hair – no matter how poor their donor hair supply.  He has collaborated on a study of hair stem cells and hair multiplication with scientists at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center.  The result of their study was the development of a new way to multiply one of the two types of stem cells involved with human hair growth.  It was published as Cell Proliferation in 2011.
