  1. Guys, We need to keep this thread on topic. There is no relevance between surgical skill and schooling. In fact, this conversation has de-railed the patients concerns. Let’s keep this on track and focus on what matters which is the patients results.
  2. He was pre-med at UCLA and did his residency at UC Davis I believe. Where you graduate or go to school has no bearing on your surgical skill. Guys, These inflammatory remarks are ridiculous. I’ve been in contact with Dr. Diep, he will be commenting and reaching out to this patient. There are countless examples of his work myself included. Unfortunately, like I said not every result will be a success and I’ve been around long enough to say every surgeon has had lackluster results. How a surgeon handles these cases is the sign of a great surgeon and I believe Dr. Diep is an excellent surgeon.
  3. @FrontalHT12 please pm me and I will reach out to Dr. Diep to comment on your case. He’s a good guy and I know he stands by his work. Unfortunately, not every case will be a home run. That said, I agree with your sentiments and feelings of the results.
  4. @jj51702 I don’t know what your issue is with Dazed, but I expect you to treat everyone with respect. Now let’s move on from this. Onwards and upwards
  5. Great presentation, You’re truly a great resource for the forum I really appreciate that. I think your hair looks great, obviously still some time for the hair to mature and thicken. But as of now the improvements are undeniable:
  6. I think micro-needling and minoxidil combined is a pretty effective treatment. I have seen some really good results from @CosmoKramer I was on the fence at first, but after seeing his progress I think it's definitely effective.
  7. What are some things that you guys feel every person should know before undergoing a procedure? I would love to hear the communities input. Do Hair Transplant's Work? Everything You Need To Know
  8. See in these two pictures you can see his hair plugs are still there. He just doesn’t have enough. Now the sides near his temple are high. It slopes down near the crown in a typical Norwood 6 pattern. He couple probably get a few large strip procedures and FUE and keep that same high hairline and cover the midscalp, possibly even cover a portion of the crown. I think he’d look pretty good.
  9. I think he could’ve definitely gotten a decent result. His sides are high enough. The crown would have to be sacrificed, but he could use concealer for that.
  10. No one has ever mentioned anything. You have to realize that most people don’t focus on your head. In fact, most people don’t notice unless I point it out. If you really wanna play it safe go #1 that’s the guard I usually go down too.
  11. I agree with your assessment. The frame to your face is definite. That said, I would expect a lot more density. I have seen how your hair looks with Toppik and it looks amazing. Eugenix seems to be hitting it out of the park, so definitely worth looking into.
  12. I agree with Mr S, it really depends on the skin/hair contrast and the punch size. This is me at 0.5 guard with .09 and 1mm punches. My scars are more visible because I have dark hair lighter skin.
  13. Great progress Mike, Thoroughly impressed by Dr. Bloxham’s work! I hope you’ll consider creating a patient website. https://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/blog/
