Join Medical Director of Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration

Dr. Mohebi, Medical Director of Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration, describes the diagnosis and treatment of female patterned baldness and how it differs from male patterned baldness in this informative video. The doctor recommends treatment based on a five step evaluation. The doctor will begin by asking about the female patient’s family history in order to determine if they have a genetic predisposition to baldness or other medical condition that may lead to hair loss. The doctor will then perform a macro and micro study on the patient’s scalp to determine their pattern of hair loss. While female pattern baldness, or diffused hair loss, is more typical in women, some females can experience male patterned baldness where they lose hair at the top and crown of their head. Later, the doctor will perform additional diagnostic and lab tests such as a scalp biopsy which analyzes for cell blood count, iron levels, and systemic diseases. Finally, the doctor will treat the patient according to their pattern of hair loss. Treatment options for female patterned hair loss include medication such as Rogaine, and laser or cosmetic surgery.

Female Hair Loss Treatment

Dr. Mohebi, Medical Director of Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration, describes how a hair restoration procedure can restore the balance of the face for men and women with hair loss or congenitally elevated hairlines. The ideal distance between the hairline and top of the eyebrows should be 1/3rd of the face, or the same distance between the nose and chin or between the tip of the nose and between the eyebrows. The forehead will look elevated if it does not roughly conform to these proportions. The difference will be even more pronounced in men with narrow chins. A Hair Restoration procedure can correct for this horizontal imbalance. Men and women with more advanced stages of hair loss may experience temple recession or loss of sideburns. This condition can also result from trauma or complications from other cosmetic procedures which affects both the temples and hairline. A hair restoration procedure that brings the temples forward will make the patient’s face look more balanced and attractive. This will also benefit patients experiencing premature aging by framing their face in a way that makes them look younger. Women with male patterned baldness may experience similar patterns of hair loss. A hair restoration procedure can not only give them a more youthful appearance, but also create a more feminine hairline.

Reframing the Face With Hair Transplant Surgery

Dr. Parsa Mohebi, Medical Director of Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration, discusses the impact of male patterned baldness on the psycho social lives of young men in this informative video. The doctor uses evidence from well known studies to demonstrate how hair loss can lead to anxiety and depression.

Dr. Mohebi states how an individual’s psychosocial life can be improved after receiving a hair transplant. In a sample study, Dr. Mohebi evaluated the responses of former hair loss patients who were asked to rate their perceived happiness before and after their surgery based on a number of different criteria. These included overall happiness, energy level, youthfulness, improved anxiety, self confidence, future outlook, sex life, and career. Dr. Mohebi found that patients would report considerable improvement in each of those factors, including overall happiness, after their hair transplant. The primary reason given for their happiness boost was improved self esteem, which had a positive impact on their outlook, career, and relationships.

Hair Loss Psychology – the Effects of Baldness on the Mental State and Psyche

Dr. Parsa Mohebi, Medical Director of Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration, describes the hair restoration process in this informative video. Potential hair loss patients are first evaluated and recommended treatment based on diagnostic tests determining the patient’s classification of hair loss, likely progression, donor supply, and pattern of hair loss. A hair transplant procedure usually involves transplanting hair from the back of and sides of the head where the hair is permanent, to the front of the head where there is thinning.  The two most popular hair transplant procedures are Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).  In a FUT, or Strip Procedure, the doctor will remove a strip of skin in order to harvest groups of hairs. The FUE Procedure involves the extraction of individual hairs which can be done manually or with an automated device. The FUT Procedure allows the doctor to harvest more hair grafts per session than with FUE, but could lead to minor swelling after the procedure.  The results of both procedures should be undetectable.
