  1. Taken today. Just some pomade. I am truly amazed how it is holding on: going to be 4 years since Dr. Diep surgery. I have had more than a few people say they wish they had my hair. I just chuckle inside. I know the truth of it all I would go back to Dr. Diep again if I had to do it all over again. He is an artist. The illusion of dense hair requires skill and Diep has it. I will vouch for him. I am just an ordinary bald chap whose life just got insanely better thanks to him. My donor is thin from when it all began. But it was expected but nothing that ordinary folks will notice.
  2. Hey Melvin, buddy. Looking further I realized you were our HTsoon. It’s a long time since I visited the forum. Hope you are doing well. You are a moderator now. Awesome man. You are the best to guide for the future HT aspirants.
  3. UPDATE 4 years since first transplant. Total of 3 FUE 16 months since the last. Still going strong. Happy with results. Could do one more in the crown. Non scalp source of FUE. Medications - Nisoral and Minoxidil.
  4. Hi folks. I am traveling. Got the best I could. Will update better once or twice before and at 18 month mark.
  5. Almost at the end ...... although some say 18 months for the crown. Photos from span of last month. Mainly textural changes at this time.
  6. Thank you for the well wishes. Will update again soon. Still seeing changes.
  7. Nice. No he does not do measurements and stuff. Nonobjective examination. Goes by his personal experience. But he is good. I am very happy with my results. Still going strong.
  8. I had asked him will I need more after the 3rd HT. He said I possibly have around 1500 left and if need be, can utilize them but advised not to move a muscle for 3 years. Personally I think I am done with scalp to scalp. I may consider beard to scalp if ever. I am also kinda exhausted now going through it all again. Will now just sit back and relax.
  9. True. I once was near complete bald, which I now sometimes easily forget. Reminded when I visit this thread all the time. It was a very expensive procedure, but years of feeling insecure led me to just say screw it, and pull the trigger. I am fully satisfied with what Dr. Diep accomplished. He did an amazing job. I can’t thank him enough. Hi hairline suits my face and was how my originally hairline was. One of the reason I went with him. I hope to give an update in few months. The crown grows slower than rest of the scalp. Peace out.
  10. Progressing well. The bare naked bald spots have changed to thinning effect. So far so good. Right side seems to be lagging a little behind. Front still holding on 3 years later. Happy New Year to all.
  11. To keep the update going ... all seems to go as expected....
