Hair Care Beverly Hills Interview with Dr. Parsa Mohebi

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

Dr. Mohebi is the medical director of US Hair Restoration’s hair transplant centers in Southern California. With offices centrally located amongst the major cities of Encino, Beverly Hills, Orange County, San Diego, and San Francisco, CA, Dr. Mohebi has made himself available to almost every major part of the California’s population. In addition, Dr. Mohebi is the author of Hair Restoration Blog where he responds to the questions/concerns of many aspects of hair loss and hair restoration.  In addition to his blog where Dr. Mohebi answers basic questions regarding hair loss and hair restoration, the doctor has also been interviewed (for the second time) by Hair Care Beverly Hills of

Below you can see some of Dr. Mohebi’s main responses to questions posed by the interviewer.

In response to the question of whether or not clients are eligible whom have already had hair restoration and are unhappy with the results, the doctor responded: Yes, hair transplant repairs are possible and are a good portion of the hair transplant surgeries performed in our Southern California offices (mainly located in Beverly Hills, Encino,Orange County, and San Diego hair transplant consultation). Many people may have unnatural results from previous hair transplants due to the older techniques (such as plug surgery), but some may even have problems with recent hair restoration procedures due to technical issues or lack of proper judgment on the part of the hair transplant surgeon. In most situations, the repair is easy and can be done in one to two sessions.

In regards to the question of whether or not there is a minimum age requirement for hair restoration, Dr. Mohebi stated: It is not unusual for a hair transplant surgeon to discourage a person younger than 24 from pursuing a hair restoration surgery.  However, nowadays microscopic techniques being used to evaluate the miniaturization of susceptible hair can assist surgeons in predicting the final pattern of hair loss. By being able to predict each patient’s final balding stages, we are able to see where the pattern of baldness is heading and based on that, we can now recommend hair transplant surgery at an earlier age.

When asked about the donor scar following a hair transplant and whether or not it will be visible, Dr. Mohebi responded: If you do not plan on shaving your hair after your hair transplant surgery, your donor wound will never be visible. However, if you plan on shaving your head for any reason, you may choose to have a FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction procedure done rather than the general FUT procedure through removing a strip from the donor area. FUE transplant eliminates the visibility of a linear scar on the back of your head and is the best option for patients who plan on shaving their head or keeping their hair very short in the future.

To determine recommended options or graft numbers for your personal case, Dr. Mohebi suggests attending an in person consultation in any of his five California regional offices. In addition, he stated: Yes, the initial consultation with me (Dr. Parsa Mohebi) is complimentary in any of our California hair transplant offices in Beverly Hills, Encino, Orange County, San Diego, and San Francisco.

Lastly, the interviewer inquired as to what clients should bring with them to their free consultations and the doctor replied: Anything related to your hair loss and hair restoration, including family history of hair loss, other medical conditions that may have been attributed to ones hair loss, medical, surgical or even cosmetic changes that you like and may help you have a better result after a hair restoration procedure.

Massage for Scalp after Hair Transplant

scalp massage and hair transplant








We understand people like to pamper themselves. A patient of ours wrote to us regarding a scalp and body massage. He had his hair transplant surgery in our Encino Surgical Office almost 8 months ago and asked, “Would get a head massage risk loosening the implants?” He also wanted to know if that would help increase circulation to the grafts and improve growth.

Hair that has been transplanted over 3 months ago and is growing normally is considered permanent and cannot be dislodged from your scalp. The main concern is in the first weeks of a hair transplant surgery when the hair is still settling in. Even so, some cases where the hair is removed the active part of the follicle may still remain and a new follicle will grow shortly after. At this point, hair cannot be harmed.

However, there is no proof that a scalp massage to increase scalp circulation is proven to increase the quality of existing or newly transplanted hair. More so, it has also not been proven that lack of blood circulation or oxygenation in scalp will cause hair loss.
