  1. Check out the links in my first post above for before pictures, hairline pulled back and much more. This update is just to show that everything is holding up 4 years down the road. Nostalgia hit out of nowhere so I decided to do an update. I'll try to be more detailed next time. Take care everyone!
  2. On August 3rd 2014, I underwent my first FUE hair transplant, performed by Doctor John Diep of Los Gatos, California. Dr. Diep transplanted a total of 2,460 grafts in the front half of my head. He recreated my hairline and added grafts further back to increase density. The result was fantastic (link: https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/39774-2460-fue-hair-transplant-by-doctor-john-diep/), so I decided to quit using Minoxidil. I knew I'd pay for it, but decided that a second transplant to restore healthy hair in my problem area would be far better than taking Minoxidil for life. A
  3. Definitely a great result! I'm impressed by how full it looks with such a short cut. A second pass with around 1500 grafts wills probably make it look like you never had hair loss to begin with.
  4. if you had time to post such a detailed description of your experience, you would also post some photos. So let's see your 12 month result before you start giving this clinic so much praise. So far, this looks like bs promotion to me. But please, prove me wrong.
  5. Thanks for the info. Yeah, I'm happy with the growth I've had considering that it has only been 14 weeks. It's still too early though. It looks like a good amount of grafts still haven't surfaced and the transplanted hair is still thin and has a wiry texture.
  6. Do you mind posting or messaging me pictures of how your hair looks short at 6 months post op (or 7 months now, right?). I'm curious to see if length plays such a significant role in the appearance of density. Dr. Diep also performed my hair transplant and I'm currently a little over 3 months post op. You can see my progress here: http://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/eve/177064-2-460-fue-hair-transplant-doctor-john-diep.html#post2406853 Anyways, your hair looks great already. I'm looking forward to seeing your 12 month results.
