Default Potential Recommendation for Dr. Parsa Mohebi of Los Angeles, CA

Dear Forum Members,

As many of you know, we gather as much information as possible about a physician, their staff, technique and track record before they are even considered for recommendation on the Hair Transplant Network. Part of our review process involves getting input from patients and the members of this forum community. To learn more about this review process, click here.

I would appreciate this community’s input on the potential recommendation of Dr. Parsa Mohebi of Los Angeles, CA on the Hair Transplant Network. At this time, Dr. Mohebi is only being considered for recommendation, not the Coalition. To see our standards for recommendation, click here.

Dr. Parsa Mohebi opened his own clinic in 2008 after completing a one year fellowship with Coalition member Dr. Bill Rassman. He now performs hair transplants exclusively and has for almost 3 years at his own clinic, US Hair Restoration. Dr. Mohebi’s surgical staff consists of 3 full time cutters and planters averaging over 10 years of experience.

In 2008, Pat Hennessey, publisher of the Hair Transplant Network, had the opportunity to observe Dr. Mohebi and his staff performs hair transplant surgery at his clinic. While Dr. Mohebi was still newer to surgical hair restoration at the time of Pat’s visit, Pat was impressed with his dedication to state of the art hair transplant techniques. To view the highlights from Pat’s visit, see “Pat’s Visit to Dr. Parsa Mohebi’s Clinic in Los Angeles, California”. Now, over 2 years later, Dr. Mohebi has presented over a dozen examples of his results that in my opinion, exemplify the quality of his work.

Dr. Mohebi has the staff and experience to perform large sessions exceeding 3000 follicular unit grafts when appropriate for the patient. His experienced surgical team meticulously trims and prepares all grafts under microscopes.

In addition to performing state of the art follicular unit hair transplantation, Dr. Mohebi also performs follicular unit extraction (FUE) with sessions up to 1500 grafts daily for patients who are qualified.

Dr. Mohebi uses 20 gauge needles to make tiny graft incisions in the recipient area as small as 0.89mm. He intentionally zig zags his donor excision slightly so that the thin donor scar is harder to detect even under close examination. Dr. Mohebi uses a double layer closure when he feels it’s appropriate to minimize any potential scarring. He uses staples to seal the wound externally and typically only uses the trichophytic closure on the last surgery with some exceptions. Dr. Mohebi feels this allows him to maximize the number of grafts he can obtain in subsequent procedures while reserving the best scar when the transformation is complete.

Dr. Mohebi creates parallel (sagital) incisions at the hairline and perpendicular (coronal) incisions in the posterior areas to maximize hairline naturalness and the appearance of density behind it.

Having a strong interest in researching hair growth, wound healing, and hair multiplication, Dr. Mohebi currently collaborates with academic centers on studies relating to hair growth, gene therapy techniques and hair multiplication.

Given Dr. Mohebi and his staff's excellent credentials, experience and technique, I believe he should be considered for recommendation. To view our standards for recommendation, click here.

Below, view some of their patient and surgical photos. You can find several other examples of his work in the “Results Posted by Leading Hair Transplant Clinics” forum.

2948 Grafts with Dr. Mohebi

3515 Grafts with Dr. Mohebi in two procedures

2995 Grafts with Dr. Mohebi

3324 Grafts with Dr. Mohebi

3162 Grafts with Dr. Mohebi

3458 Grafts with Dr. Mohebi

1400 Grafts with Dr. Mohebi

I welcome input and comments from forum members regarding his potential recommendation.

Best wishes,

Bill Seemiller

Just a quick note; if Dr. Mohebi is using a 20 gauge needle than his sites are not .7mm. They would be closer to .9mm. He is using a 22 gauge needle to make .7mm incisions.

Thanks for everyone's input so far.

Joe,

I've made the correction. Dr. Mohebi typically uses 20 gauge needles which produces just under .9mm incision sizes.

Best wishes,

Bill

Bill (and or Dr. Mohebi),

I'm curious as to why Dr. Mohebi chooses to make parallel incisions at the hairline? I don't think I've heard of many other doctors doing this, and I'm wondering what type of advantage it offers?

Having said that, I've been impressed by Dr. Mohebi's work for some time (very natural and realistic), and I think he'd make a nice edition to the community.

Blake,

Many physicians create sagital (paralel) incisions at the hairline and beyond. Others prefer creating coronal/lateral (perpendicular) incisions. Each physician has their preferences. Dr. Mohebi feels that the use of sagital incisions at the hairline aid in creating naturalness. He uses coronals behind the hairline to aid in creating density.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Bill

Thanks every one for your warm comments and good questions.

Future HT Doc,
I use sagittal incision on the very front of my hairlines only to make the hairline (that will be receiving single hair follicular units). Sagittal incisions are used to minimize the level of injury to the small dermal blood vessels that travel from front to top. The reason we do not use sagittal incisions on the more posterior areas and behind the hairline is to increase the appearance of fullness in those areas (as Bill mentioned too).

Thanks,
