  2. To begin, I am sorry that you felt misled in any way in regards to what you could expect with the Celebrity FUE, and I thank you for bringing this to our attention. My team and I are looking into the factors may have played a role regarding the disconnect in what the Celebrity FUE entails and what the final product is. I assure you that it was never my intent to mislead you, and we are working on the language so that there is even greater clarity around what is available through this procedure so that we can minimize the possibility of any misunderstanding in the future. With that said, there are a few factors that I would like to address in terms of how I run my practice, as some of the details you gave are not accurate in my eye. Like you, I have no interest in an “internet argument”, and my intention here is to give what I believe to be a more complete look at my practice and how it operates. First and foremost, the notion that I am only in the room for less than an hour is simply not true. In a typical 8-10 hour session, I am in the room for well over half that time. In fact, for the first 4 hours of the procedure, I am there the entire time making all the incisions/sites and extracting the grafts myself. Not only would a technician never be trusted to use any device to extract/cut grafts, it is in fact illegal in the State of California. I assure you that I would not compromise my own work or my license and would never have anyone other than myself extract the grafts. Extraction of the grafts consists of 2 parts; one part being the most crucial where the surgeon incises or scores the grafts (this can only be done by the surgeon) and the second part is when the technicians assist with pulling the grafts for counting and further preparation before we can implant them. So when my technicians said they were catching up with extracting, they meant they were catching up with pulling the grafts that I had scored, so we can get a count of the current grafts. Regarding the placement of the grafts and the misguided comment/joke I made about how I am not good at graft insertion and the technicians are better, a bit of context is needed. One of the most important aspects of a hair transplant (in addition to extracting the grafts) is the design of the hairline and the incisions made in the recipient site. This is something that I take great pride in and something that is required and expected of any hair transplant surgeon. I spend a great deal of time creating the recipient sites, and like nearly every practice, the technicians are there to place the grafts in the sites the surgeon creates. It is my responsibility to then oversee the placement and ensure that everything is done to my standards. Our technicians are full time employees who are highly trained by me and our team. It would be expected that technicians whose primary responsibility is to place these grafts day in and day out would be more efficient at it than the surgeon, as it is simply not one of the surgeon’s primary functions. Therefore, there is occasional lighthearted workplace banter where my technicians say they are better at it than me. In hindsight, I understand how this could be taken out of context and not received well on your end, and how it is not something that would put you at ease. To see how this works, I'm attaching a link to a video of grafts being placed in the recipient sites using the Mohebi Inserter, a device I invented that helps maintain the quality of the grafts as it reduces damage that can be done by traditional forceps placement methods. I have also been a pioneer in implementing a Simultaneous Extraction and Placement technique and we have been exclusively using it in the last few years to reduce the time the grafts are out of the body. During this method, the surgeon makes premade sites (designs the incisions) at the beginning of the procedure after administrating the local anesthesia. Then we change the patient’s position and the surgeon starts extracting the grafts under microscopic vision. After the grafts are extracted by the surgeon, the 1st technician pulls the grafts, the 2nd technician counts and sorts the grafts under a microscope, then the 3rd and 4th technicians place the grafts all at the same time. At times I may have extracted faster so I have to stop the extraction until the team catches up with pulling the extracted grafts, counting them, and then placing them. We have cut down the time that grafts sit out of the body to less than 60 minutes and we believe this helps the viability of the grafts. My team and I would love to speak to you about this and resolve this in a way that is satisfactory to all involved. I ask that you please reach out to my office so that we can move forward with this. And again, I thank you for bringing to our attention the need for us to tighten up our communication. I assure you it will be addressed and handled accordingly.

  10. Even though hair loss is viewed as a problem that mostly occurs in the lives of men, women are almost as likely to suffer from thinning hair. It’s an issue for women of any age and can happen for a variety of reasons. While men’s hair normally recedes from their forehead or the crown of their head, women usually have more diffuse thinning (spread out over a large area) on both the front and top of the scalp. Hair loss can be a big blow to the image and self-esteem of women. While not every case of female hair loss is a perfect fit for a hair transplant, some types of female hair loss can benefit from a hair transplant. Here are five steps that most female patients can take to manage their current hair loss as well as prevent further loss. Step 1: History The first and maybe most important step in managing female hair loss is building an accurate patient history. This history should include a listing of family hair loss as well as a list of the patient’s medical problems and medications. If there is not a strong family history of female hair loss then it’s time to start looking for other hair loss causes. A lack of family history may indicate that the person is not suffering from a typical case of female patterned hair loss. There are some medications that have hair loss as one of their known side effects. A complete medical history is vital in the evaluation and diagnosis of the cause of the hair loss experienced by the patient. Step 2: Macro and Microscopic Evaluation A thorough examination of the patient’s scalp should be performed to determine if there are any abnormal patterns present. Microscopic evaluation of the scalp, as well as the hair, is a big component of evaluating hair loss in a female patient. Hair shafts become fine before they are lost. If the patient has a fineness of more than 20% of her hair shafts, that amount can’t be explained away by the natural recycling of normal hair. The mapping of scalp hair miniaturization is a helpful guide to evaluate the treatment success rate. It also helps to predict the future pattern of hair loss. Step 3: Lab Work Lab work is not a given in each case but it might be necessary for some women with hair loss. The lab work can range from a CBC (Complete Blood Count) to an Iron Panel and hormonal levels. The Iron Panel may include serum iron levels, TIBC (Total Iron Binding Capacity) and ferritin levels (measure the amount of iron stored in the body). Hormonal levels will need to be checked as well in the patient. Why? Hormonal imbalances can be a reason for hair loss and thinning in women. The most common levels checked include: *Total and Free Testosterone *DEHA-Sulfate *Prolactin *T3, T4 and TSH After these tests are complete there might be a need for a few other specific tests. Also, the doctor may have to obtain a scalp biopsy in order to eliminate the possibility of other skin conditions leading to the hair loss. Examples of these conditions include Alopecia Areata and Alopecia Cicatricial. The need for a scalp biopsy is evaluated on an individual patient basis. Step 4: Diagnosis The decision of what treatment to undertake for the patient’s hair loss is decided on after a diagnosis from the doctor. If there is a medical condition causing the loss, it must be treated before any treatment plan is undertaken. If we don’t discover another medical condition causing hair loss, the most likely diagnosis is male or female patterned baldness. We may offer a variety of treatments for each condition. Step 5: Treatment One of the common types of hair loss in women is diffuse hair loss. Patients experience a high level of thin hair and we detect high rates of miniaturization of hair in our microscopic examination. Patients who have a high level of miniaturization are generally not good candidates for a hair transplant. These patients mostly require medical hair loss treatment with minoxidil (Rogaine) and low level laser therapy (LLLT). Which patients make good candidates for hair transplantation? The best candidates are women with local hair loss as well as non-defuse loss of hair in the preserved donor hair on the permanent zone. Women who have a congenitally high laying hairline and want to reduce the height of their forehead. One important aspect of hair loss treatment is making sure expectations are set at an attainable level. Not all patients can expect to see the same outcome and should enter treatment with a realistic goal in mind. Also, more than one transplant may be required for the best results in some women. The patient should be aware of this fact in advance. A specialist in the field of female hair loss should have a good working knowledge of cosmetics which are useful in enhancing the appearance of women suffering from male or female patterned hair loss. The specialist should be knowledgeable about various shampoos, conditioners and other hair products and their effects (good and bad) on hair appearance. Learning how to properly style your hair to avoid further damage, hair coloring tips and other cosmetic changes to a daily hair style routine can be a big help in the hair loss consultation process. Conclusion The approach taken to treating women who suffer from hair loss is different than the treatment of men who suffer from typical male patterned baldness. A thorough evaluation and correct diagnosis can make all the difference in the treatment success. Deciding on medical treatments to maintain the current hair might be a better option than a hair transplant in some cases. Whichever option is chosen, it’s vital to make sure all parties enter the treatment with the same expectations. The challenges of dealing with, and correcting, extensive hair loss can lead to a life changing experience for patients. A well planned combination of medical treatments, hair transplantation and cosmetic choices can work wonders in creating the appearance of full, healthy and vibrant hair in those women who suffer from hair loss.
