Dr. Amir Yazdan fuses the best of today’s medical approaches as well as cutting edge surgical techniques to get back your hair and confidence. He specializes in both the FUE and FUT/Strip Hair Restoration surgeries as well as being one of the few physicians who routinely performs FUE for African American and Ethnic patients in addition to Body Hair Transplantation to repair previous botched hair transplants. Dr. Yazdan is board certified and a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, the world’s leading medical authority on hair loss and hair restoration as well as the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons known for its commitment to hair transplant patient education and safety.
His passion for science led him to earning a biology degree from the University of California and a medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine. He completed his residency training at Kaiser Permanente in Riverside, CA, an affiliate of the USC Keck School of Medicine
Dr. Yazdan has received extensive training in Hair Transplant Surgery in one of the leading Hair Transplant Centers in the world. He has successfully performed over 5,000,000 (5 Million) FUE graft extractions and has harvested over 5,000,000 (5 Million) FUT grafts.
“My residency allowed me to treat patients in many areas of medicine, but I particularly enjoyed my extensive training in cosmetic procedures. While completing my residency, I began to expand my training in the cosmetic side of medicine and specialized in hair transplantation. Over the last few years, I’ve been privileged to have surgical training from leading physicians in the field of cosmetics and hair transplantation via preceptorships done in the U.S. and Dubai.”
That specialized training and experience prompted him to establish the Modena Hair & Laser Institute in 2011, where he offers a spectrum of services related to hair loss in both men and women.
“With an increase in male patients coming to the cosmetic center, I received extensive training in Hair Transplant Surgery and new specialized techniques and am able to offer Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), a minimally invasive, dynamic technique for hair transplantation as well as FUT/Strip surgery harvesting. I am committed to excellence, using only the latest technologies and scientific advancements in hair restoration to ensure outcomes that go beyond a patient’s expectations.”
Dr. Yazdan also maintains staff privileges at Kaiser Permanente in California.
Fueled by Fitness and Life
When not at the center, Dr. Yazdan is living life to the fullest, from tennis, road racing and dirt bike riding to the extreme sport of heliboarding—snowboarding after jumping out of a helicopter—in Canada or Alaska. He also unwinds by playing piano and building stuff, like motorcycles and even an off-road trophy truck to race in the Baja 1000.
While on an investigative team during his residency, Dr. Yazdan conducted two case studies: one in intralobar pulmonary sequestration and the other on gastric adenocarcinoma with acute pulmonary embolism and fatal acute disseminated intravascular coagulation. Both studies were through the Loma Linda University Medical Center.
