I’ve always been afraid of the thought of having a hair transplant procedure even though I desperately needed one. After a great deal of persuasion from friends and family, I decided to undergo the procedure because I was suffering from extensive hair loss at the time. I was told that the importance of choosing the right doctor couldn’t be overemphasized and I really understood this after my experience with Dr. Mohebi. He was very attentive and understanding. The environment and the facilities are top notch. The payment process was also easy. What I valued the most was the time Dr. Mohebi talking to me and carefully explaining the details of the procedure. I’m really grateful and the results are spectacular.

I've had a hair transplant procedure with Dr. Mohebi, over the course of three years. I had two hair transplant and a SMP procecure during this time.  I have been very satisfied with the result.



I was told various numbers of follicular grafts for my procedure by different doctors. I did a lot of research so I knew what a hair transplant was about and everything semed a lot like what I wanted to hear. Dr. Parsa Mohebi was the last doctor I consulted with, and I felt like he gave me a more honest outlook.  He didn't promise any particular results. He told me the best and worst case scenarios.  



He suggested a number of grafts that I felt comfortable with and it sounded right in the middle of the high and low suggestions I'd been given by other doctors. He also said to me exactly how the procedures worked and what to expect after hair transpalnt.  



It was not easy to wait until the grafts start growing hair and it took at least six months to start to see the results of the hair transplant. I can say is that every procedure has met my expectations and what I was prepared to experience.  Doctor and his team have always been very helpful and to the point.  



I highly recommend Dr. Mohebi if you need any hair restoration.

What is the cost of hair transplant in Los Angeles
Q: I am in my 40s and have been seeing some thinning on my hairline specially on the corners on both sides. I have been using finasteride for a few years but it has not helped. I am thinking hair transplant. I don't think I need a big hair restoration but something to fill the corners and keep it a bit more dense in the next few years. I am interested to know what would be the costs of something like that in Los Angeles. Thanks,
A: The price of Hair Restoration Surgery in LA
Los Angeles is one of the destinations for quality hair transplant and there are many centers doing this procedure. The cost of a hair transplant has to do with the number of grafts and the types of procedures. We currently do most of our procedure with FUE method. The cost of a regular FUE procedure is currently $8 per grafts. If your hair loss is limited to the corners you only need a small number of grafts. Although at times after our evaluation we realize that there is more microscopic signs of further hair loss on a larger area of scalp. You may need 800 - 1200 grafts (average 1000). So the total cost of your hair transpalnt will be about $8,000. Obviously that number could change if you chose one of the more expensive hair restoration procedures like: Celebrity Hair Transplant in which we don't have to shave the donor area in order to harvest hair. We recommend an in person or virtual consultation to determine the total number of grafts. adf


Forehead Reduction Vs Hair Transplant for MTF Transgender
Q: I already had 2 hair transplants before I became a MTF transgender. And I have a very good scalp laxity that my doctor recommends a forehead reduction so that he can lower my hairline and have a natural look. Im wondering what you guys can recommend, is it forehead reduction or hair transplant? Picture of a model that has similar hairline as mine.
A: Hair Transplant for MTF transgender
I recommend hair transplants for a male to female transgender individuals. If you already had some hair transplant it means many of the frontal hair is already transplanted. The picture you shared shows a hairline with receded corners that is characteristic of a masculine hairline. A hair transpalnt can easily lower the corner and create a conservative feminine hairline or if you prefer a more aggressive female hairline as long as your donor reserver allows that. We don't recommend a forehead reduction surgery sine it is more aggressive and it leaves a linear scar in front. While it used to be a great option in past; today, with the advanced methods of hair restoration there is not a place to udergo this proceudre. The line of scar with a too solid of a hairline right behind it are often unnatural. The patients still need another proceudre to maintain an undetectable hairline.


Can estrogen and testosterone blockers treat male pattern baldness?
Q: Im a MTF transgender and Iam m planning to do a big hair transplant procedure. I have a family history of male pattern baldness both on my father and mother side. By taking Estrogen and Testosterone blockers how it will help my hair loss in the future?
A: Testostrone blockers for treating male hair loss
A hair transplant is a great option for an MTF transgender process. In fact, I believe this is one of the most important procedures that can create the transition toward a feminine look. If individuals who undergo this process are not prone to male patterned baldness, a hair transplant is sufficient to create a female hairline. However, if you are risking losing more hair on the front, top, or crown you need to minimize the effect of male hormones (mostly dihydrotestosterone or DHT). DHT blockers are among the medications that are used by many MTF individuals. The alternative will be testosterone blockers like spironolactone that blocks all effects of testosterone. That is something that most MTF transgender desire. That helps them to have better skin and get rid of other effects of testosterone. Estrogen blockers on the other hand are not part of the treatments that are currently recommended for MTF transgender. If anything, these patients can use female hormones for developing feminine characteristics.


What goes into the total cost of a hair transplant?
Q: I am a 30+ male interested in having a hair transplant but I am very confused by pricing across the country. Why is there not an industry standard for hair transplant pricing per graft? How is the price determined and does it vary by the amount of follicles in the graft?
A: Price of a Hair Transplant Surgery
The cost of a hair transplant has to do with the number of grafts that are needed and the cost per grafts. The larger area of balding that requires transplantation the higher the number of grafts and the more expensive the hair transplant is. The number of grafts is usually determined after a doctor consultation based on the hairline design. The cost per grafts can be different depending on the doctor performing it and his/her experience. There might be other factors such as the type of hair transplant. Some hair trnaspants are more demanding than others such as non-shaven hair transplant. At times eyebrow or beard hair transplant may have differnet prices too.


Is PRP a valid hair transplant option?
Q: I keep reading about PRP but I am confused about how it used for hair transplant. Is it a viable option? Is it still in studies? I am so confused!
A: PRP for Hair Restoration
PRP has been in use for hair restoration for many years without solid evidence on its efficacy. The studies that show a positive result with PRP are often done with smaller cases and they have not shown any improvements in long term. There are some new studies that show similar effect to PRP with only infiltration of saline to scalp. Those usually show limited result temporarily. We have never offered nor recommended PRP as an option for hair restoration with hair transplant procedures or by itself. That will stay the same unless there will be better documentation on its use and long term results.


Can I take hair from somewhere else on my body for a hair transplant?
Q: While I am lacking hair on the top of my head, I am a 33 year old male with a good amount of hair on my chest, back and legs. Is the hair that is transplanted from one part of the scalp to the balding area of the same quality as the hair from other parts of the body? Does it look natural once it is transplanted to the scalp? Is there any reason other body hair can’t be used?
A: Body hair could be used for transplanting to scalp
Body hair could be successfully used to restore scalp balding. However, due to the limitations such as its size and shorter growth phase, it is not the first choice when it comes to transplantation. We always prioritize scalp hair and then facial hair for scalp balding. If those are not available, body hair could be used. Not everyone is a candidate for body to scalp hair transplant and you need to be evaluated by a hair transplant surgeon first.


Is my hair transplant a failure?
Q: I had a FUE hair transplant around 95 days ago (2200 grafts on the front area and the sides). It has been a little over 3 months and I have not seen a good deal of regrowth yet. Is my hair transplant a failure?
A: When to see the result of a hair transplant
3 months is not enough time to see the result of a hair transplant. Hair follicles usually go to the resting phase by losing the hair shaft and they only start growing hair after 4-6 weeks from the hair transplant. After the resting phase, the newly growing hair will appear as fine microscopic hairs that become longer and thicker over the next few months. Most people start noticing minimal growth after the first 3 months but it is not uncommon if you don't see any improvement within the first 4 months. We usually bring patients back on their eight months after their procedure to see most of the result. Most people continue to see improvement until 12 to 18 months after their hair restoration procedure.


How much does FUE hair transplant cost compared to FUT?
Q: I’m interested in doing a hair transplant in the near future. How much does it cost if I want to do a FUE? Is it more expensive than doing FUT?
A: FUE vs Strip FUT Cost
FUE cost has been traditionally higher due to the fact that they have been more labor intense. In our office we used to charge twice for FUE per grafts when we did mostly strip procedures. However, as FUE graft excition is becoming easier, thanks to the advanced methods of FUE hair extraction, the prices are becoming closer. That is for the regular FUE procedures that we get to shave the donor area. Celebrity hair transplant in which we perform an FUE procedure without shaving at all is more expensive than regular FUE and strip FUT procedures.


Which method of hair transplant is recommended for Females FUE or FUT?
Q: I have been experiencing hair loss for over 7 years and I’m considering on undergoing a hair transplant. My hair is both thinning on the top and my hair line is receding. I’ve been told that I have a very thick donor site in the back of my head by a couple of doctors I’ve consulted with. Which method would be best for me FUE or the traditional Strip Hair Transplant
A: FUE or FUT for Female Hair Loss
Most women with hair loss can use both methods to restore their hair. We used to only offer FUT procedure through a strip method for women who needed a hair restoraiton. Most women keep their hair longer and they don't mind if they have a line of scar on the donor area on back and sides of their scalp. However, we get more female patients who want to have their hair restored using an FUE methods these days. That makes sense since the FUE is becoming more efficient with the new technology that is available to us know it could be offered to both men and women. Women who get an FUE don't need to shave their head but only a layer on the back and sides that can easily get covered if they don't have a short hair. These women usually consider the following as advantages of a FUE hair transpalnt: 1. No linear scar on the donor area 2. Less pain and discomfort comparing with a strip procedure 3. No risk of other complications sich as hyperthrophic, strretched scar or necrosis on the donor area


Is PRP a valid hair transplant option?
Q: I keep reading about PRP but I am confused about how it used for hair transplant. Is it a viable option? Is it still in studies? I am so confused!
A: PRP for Hair Restoration
PRP has been around for several years now and used for several medical conditions. We do not have a solid scientific study that can prove its effectiveness for treatment of male patterend baldness in long term. There has been some recent studies that indicate its temporary effectiveness may be due to the effect of irritation of injecting into the scalp rather than the effect of the PRP by itself.
