Hello
First time registered member,long time reader.
been thinking about hair transplant for so long and now its a good time with a steady income I can give myself a nice 33 bday present.
Has anyone gone with Dr Diep in Los Gatos?
If not, any recommendation for a surgeon who specialize in asian hair transplant, because asian hair are different than other races.
thanks

Jo,

Welcome to our forum community.

Honestly, I never heard of him. Be sure to research any physician you are considering and look for real patient feedback.

Since you are in California, I'd also suggest researching the following physicians with a positive track record of producing quality hair transplant results:

Dr. Reed
Dr. Rassman
Dr. Siporin
Dr. Meshkin
Dr. Kabaker

You can read more about them and find their contact information by clicking here.

Best wishes,

Bill

I would suggest contacting Dr. Wong, who has a reputation for his work on Asians.
PM Jotronics or look up Hasson and Wong's website www.hassonandwong.com.
Your going to need to leave California to get the best results.

Take Care,
Jason

Although I agree with Bill that his list of doctors are very skilled, H&W are demonstrating superior talent. Don't ever be afraid to travel. You will live with the results on display for everyone.

I don't know much about him, but I've seen some of his youtube videos. If I recall correctly, none of the videos show any grown-out matured results. They are all pre-op. Maybe he just hasn't been practicing long enough? I think he does mostly FUE, too.

I wouldn't want to spend money on an FUE procedure with a surgeon unless I could see many results, both pre-op and grown out and matured.

Default Dr John Diep

Happannagari only had one post on this website, and wrote in two bad grammar sentences about his "bad experience". If you had a bad experience, you should explain your bad experience in more details. Thus, this negative remark is not valid.
Same goes for Salcali's post who only explain "being stressed out" but does not explain in further details. I've read reviews from other website (while not many) that gave positive reviews.

John Diep is board certified with the ISHRS & AHLC and worked under Dr William Rassman. Voted one of the best hair surgeon in 2010. And one of the best and few FUE surgeons in California. And specializes in ethnic hairline.

I had a consultation with Dr John Diep (in San Francisco clinic). I am considering doing FUE procedure from Dr Diep. There was no sales pitch, nor the pressure to sell. He explained what to expect on pre, present, and post surgery. He answered all questions with honesty and with a sense of humor. Showed me pictures of his work on numerous patients. Explained the pros and cons for the transplant, gave good recommendations on my potential hairline and discuss an agreeable decent price. And had the courtesy to send me a consultation letter explaining what we had discuss.

He's young (40 years old) and only has slightly less than 10 years experience. But just because we do not see his name often on internet forums does not mean he is a terrible doctor. His business has an A-rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) with no complaints file. He's done thousands of transplant and worked on numerous celebrities and athletes from his Beverly Hills clinic. He does transplant procedures around twice a week.

We all know the general rule is never choose a surgeon base on location. But since I live in San Francisco and with Dr Diep's credentials, this is a good opportunity to consider FUE transplant from him locally. Even patients from all over the world go to his clinic. As a class 4/5 Asian patient, I will only do one FUE session (2,000 grafts) on the (mature) hairline and frontal region just to be safe and conservative. If I am satisfy with the result after a few years, I may consider another procedure from him.

I would advise nervous first timer to consider a free consultation with him and watch his YouTube videos. And for those who really had bad experience, I would like you to explain in further details and post some pictures.
