Recent Advances in Hair Transplant
Over the past year, Dr. Sean Behnam has been evaluating new methods to increase graft survival and earlier hair growth. We would like to share with you what we have learned.
Several people have asked us about cancellation day pricing. If you are interested please reply back to this email. There is a special discount provided to those willing to be on stand by.


Use of Lactated Ringers after Hair Restoration:


For the past year and a half, we have been evaluating the use of a sterile solution called lactated Ringers to spray grafts for a few days after Hairrestoration. We have learned that grafts look healthier and grow faster compared to those who do not spray of the lactated ringers. The solution keeps the grafts moist, clean and provides nutrients until the grafts take. It typically takes about 48 to 72 hours for the grafts to take.


Lactated ringers has a valuable source of electrolytes. In the hospital setting it is used as an IV injection. In our case, its sprayed over the grafts over the next few days. It contains electrolytes such as sodium potassium that is important for grafts.
Benefit from our experience. For more information you can call Dr. Sean Behnam at 310-315-4989.


More than 2,000 grafts placed in one session. Results after one year.


Adequate Protein intake and Hair Growth
Over the past 15 months, we have been evaluating the role of adding protein to one’s diet after hair restoration. We know from experience that vegetarians have slow growth and sometimes poor graft survival.
What we have learned is critical. We have seen some patients get almost full results by 4 to 5 months after the procedure.
Although this is not a magic, this provides a very significant information about adequate nutrition after hair restoration.
Not all protein supplements/shakes are the same. There’s a difference between protein concentrate and isolate. Protein Isolate tends to increase testosterone by products which may contribute to hair loss. Protein concentrate does the opposite. It can actually help hair grow, specially afterhair restoration. Typically, we have patients use protein concentrate for 5 months after a procedure.


For more information about how protein concentrate can help hair please call us.
More than 1,800 grafts placed in one session. Results after one year


Recent Advances in Hair Transplant
FUE and Wound Healing 
I’ve been performing FUE hair transplant since 2008. A lot of changes have occurred over the past seven years and I have learned ways of streamlining the process. We have learned to use smaller punches to minimize each extraction site and have learned to do so with minimum transection (graft damage). Our continuous research has identified ways to maximize graft survival and minimize healing time.I am excited to share my most recent discovery. I have known and it has been proven that the use of Acell can promote faster healing of the donor area. It has been demonstrated to decrease the size of the scar from the punch site, where grafts are extracted from.Over the past one year, I have been researching how to further accelerate the wound healing of the donor area in the back of the scalp. I have learned that this is accomplished with a non-absorbent pad applied over Acell. This pad continuously pushes the Acell into the wound. The back of the scalp is then wrapped. This detail has proven to accelerate healing and has become standard in our practice now.
The following picture below is the back of the scalp, the donor area, where grafts were extracted from (If cant view picture, enable . The red zone was treated with Acell and then covered with a non-absorbent pad and then wrapped. The Blue zone only had Acell. The difference in wound healing is strikingly different.

Benefit from our expertise and experience. For more information, you can call me at 310-866-6997.
I am committed to continuing research to achieve the best possible results.

In fact, of the nation’s 870,000 active physicians and dentists, just five percent consistently received top scores from their patients. Millions of patients go online each year to rate their doctors on various components of care, including accuracy of their diagnosis, the amount of time they spent with the doctor, and the doctor’s bedside manner and follow-up care.
