Hair Transplant Gigosessions: A Patient Benefit


Before & After Successful Hair Restoration

Gigosessions and all hair transplant surgeries are optimally aided by the use of the Laxometer, invented by Parsa Mohebi, MD medical director at US Hair Restoration centers. Laxometer is an intra-operative tool that is becoming an industry standard globally. Utilizing the metric system for most accurately determining scalp laxity, Laxometer helps the surgeon to reduce the risk of closure tension on donor wound edges. The result leads to minimize the tension of the donor wound edges and increases the safety of the strip follicular unit hair transplantation.  The Laxometer’s preciseness in measurements allows hair restoration surgeons to best formulate the safe size of donor strips. Donor strip size ultimately determines the number of possible grafts available for hair transplantation.

These exciting developments for hair loss sufferers have made hair restoration a natural, permanent and proven solution.



Mega and Giga-Session Hair Restoration Made Easy Through Laxometer

laxometer for hair transplant surgeryRecently, Dr. Parsa Mohebi, Medical Director of US Hair Restoration Los Angeles, gave a lecture on a new way to use the Laxometer during mega and giga-session hair transplants at the annual ISHRS (International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery) gathering in Amsterdam, Netherlands. As mentioned in other hair transplant industry gatherings, the Laxometer has the ability to make more accurate the strip removal method during a follicular unit hair transplant and, at the same time, minimizing the risk of donor scar complications.

At the 2009 ISHRS Meeting, Dr. Mohebi discussed a new manner in which to utilize the Laxometer for patients who have limited laxity of the scalp because of previous hair transplant surgeries or for people needing a max number of grafts in one session (3000+, 4000+, 5000+, etc.). In 2008, Dr. Mohebi  tried a different method by which he removed the strip in sequences for hair restoration procedures using the Laxometer before and after removal of every part of the strip. This particular way of using the Laxometer has resulted in a safer strip removal and, at the same time, has lessened the risk of donor wound complications.

The findings revealed at the ISHRS meeting proved that the Laxometer is the ideal surgical tool for increasing the number of hair grafts during a strip hair transplant while minimizing donor wound complications of a hair transplant surgery. Because of the results Dr. Mohebi found, he has been using the Laxometer at his California hair transplant offices quite often and it has resulted in a lot of satisfied patients.

Happy New Year from Dr. Mohebi

Happy New Year from US Hair Restoration

I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year! Last year was a year of great achievements for our hair restoration offices in Orange County and Los Angeles area in Southern California. We are pleased to announce that we continued our research in hair loss treatment and hair restoration and were active at the medical meetings at an international level.  I am proud that our articles on hair restoration were published on Hair Transplant Forum, the most prestigious journal of hair restoration surgery.

Our last two articles, Psychology of Hair Transplants and How to assess scalp laxity, were published on hair transplant forum international, both on the cover of the magazine within the last year.  I have to be thankful for Dr. William Rassman and Dr. Jae Pack who assisted me with our studies and our invention: Laxometer.

My presentation at annual meeting of International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) on Psycho-social impacts of hair restoration surgery on men was well received.  Our new intention, Laxometer is being developed and I hope that it will be mass produced to be used in hair restoration field.  Laxometer is a device that can help hair transplant surgeons to increase their precision in harvesting hair and making hair transplant a safer procedure for patients.

Adjacent to our accomplishments in hair restoration research and development, we have expanded our Medical Spa to provide a lot more cosmetic procedures to our patients under one roof. Our Encino, Beverly Hills and Orange County hair transplant offices facilitated the access of our patients to our quality services especially for the residents or Southern California.  We also provided a great travel package for the patients who traveled from other states or other Countries to take advantage of our quality services.  I need to thank our office staff and medical assistants for coordinating this process to make our procedures as smooth and pleasant as possible.

We all know that last year has been a challenging year for America and other countries financially.  We at US Hair Restoration achieved reducing the rates of our procedures while maintaining a very high standard.  We offered a variety of low rates and 0% interest finances for qualified patients to make our hair transplant procedures more affordable.

I am thrilled that I found many great friends during last year, individuals who I admire for their willingness to become a better person inside and out.  I am grateful for my colleagues for not keeping it a secret and introduced their patients and friends to us.  I also have to thank our previous patients who did not stop bragging about their new look after their hair restoration procedure with us.

Have a great New Year,
Parsa Mohebi, MD
