  • No to minimal Swelling
    Dr. Sean has developed methods that patients get very minimal to almost no swelling, even after mega sessions of 2,000+ grafts placed in a single day.
  • No to minimal Bruising
    Dr. Sean has fine tuned a method in which patients do not bruise or very minimally.
  • Minimal Scabbing
    Dr. Sean has developed hair transplant methods, so that patients are left with minimal scabbing of the hair follicles afterwards. He has also developed a washing method that can get rid of the scabs without damaging the grafts.
  • Minimal pain
    Dr. Sean uses topical numbing cream and a vibrator to minimize pain and discomfort. He uses the smallest needles (Botox needles) for injecting the anesthetic. He administers all injections himself, making sure he takes his time and makes sure you have minimal pain. If you need more time to numb, he stops and give you as much time as you want. After all, he does only one case a day. You can also use a special laughing gas during the numbing process which will further decrease discomfort.
  • Maximum Grafts
    For the FUT procedure, Dr. Behnam has developed a special scalp exercise which can increase number of grafts that can be removed by up to 10% and also minimize pain and the scar. Scalp laxity exercises apply to the strip method only.
  • Latest technology
    Dr. Sean uses the most advanced tools for each procedure: The highest powered microscopes for harvesting grafts, and smallest custom made instruments for creating recipient sites. Also, Dr. Behnam is actively involved in researching new and better methods of hair transplants. Over the past few years, he has developed ways to minimize swelling after hair transplants, minimize scabbing, minimize pain, and increase graft survival.
  • Minimal scarring
    For the FUT method, Dr. Sean uses the “Trichophytic Closure Method” which is a special way of closing scalp tissue which results in minimal scarring. He also uses double layer closure technique, with interior dissolvable sutures and outer staples. He also has every patient perform at least 2 weeks of scalp exercise, which increases scalp elasticity. All these combined reduce scarring significantly. 90 to 95% of Dr. Behnam’s patients have minimal scars.
  • Natural results guaranteed
    Dr. Sean artistically creates a hairline that frames the face and is undetectable. Nobody will notice you had a hair transplant done, and it looks extremely natural.
  • Patient education
    We provide a significant degree of education during our consultations. Dr. Sean loves to teach. He will show your hair using a microscope and explain whether you are actively thinning. He will do a hair mapping, density calculation and more. All these are part of strategic planning to determine whether you are a good hair transplant candidate.
  • Honesty
    Dr. Sean does not do a procedure on a patient if he feels the patient will not have a great result. In the consultation he carefully examines each patient and explains if the patient is a good candidate. If so, he gives the patient a thorough explanation of what to expect. It is because of this reason that we get 70% of of our patients through word of mouth.
  • Comprehensive consultation
    Dr. Sean conducts one of the most comprehensive hair transplantation consultations. There are 4 parts to the consultation:

Why Choose Dr. Sean Behnam as your Los Angeles Hair Transplant Surgeon?​

  1. Hair Loss & Hair Transplant Education: Dr. Sean explains the causes of hair loss along with the medical and surgical options that are available.
  2. Microscopic Hair Analysis: Using a video microscope, Dr. Sean analyzes the thinning areas as well as the donor area. He will determine whether your donor hair are strong and whether you are a good hair transplant candidate.
  3. Hair Density Calculation: Dr. Sean calculates the density (number of grafts per centimeter) and determines how many grafts he can remove in one session (this applies to strip method only).
  4. Hair Mapping: Dr. Sean maps out how many centimeters of balding areas are needed to be covered on top of the scalp and the number of grafts that are needed. This along with total number of removable grafts from the donor area will determine how much of the balding areas can be covered in a single session.

Dr. Sean has mastered the F.U.E. procedure: He has done thousands of cases since the beginning days of FUE. He designs and engineers his own instruments. Please see FUE page for more details. In short, the benefit of FUE is as follows: 

  • No linear incision
  • No scalpel
  • No staples
  • No sutures
  • Rapid recovery
  • Minimal downtime

This technique is so unique that only a handful of hair transplant doctors perform it. Dr. Sean has been featured on ABC news and Buzzfeed (over 7.5 million views) performing this procedure.
