  1. Hi Melvin, I am planning to address my crown in next 6 months. But I don't have too much donor hairs. I am looking for beard as donor. Dr Diep told me he can get 1000 grafts max from scalp.
  2. I am attaching 3 photos before my hair transplant with Dr Diep. 2 of them are a day before transplant.
  3. I am taking daily finasteride 1 mg and rogaine 5%. I used rogaine daily in the initial four months of transplant but nowadays my hair has grown longer and I have been irregular in using rogaine. But in last 2 months I am losing every day around 5 to 10 transplanted hairs especially while combing and applying rogaine. I believe Dr Diep and other 2 doctors used donor hairs from Safe zone, so I am surprised by my hair loss. Is it normal to lose hair after it has regrown?
  4. I am 34 years old and I did my 3rd hair transplant of 3300 grafts with Dr John Diep on Aug 25 2017. I am a norwood 6 bald. My first 2 hair transplants done in India resuted in very poor density and I had poor hair growth. So Dr Diep suggested FUT as I can get more coverage. Dr Diep designed my forehead to have greater density. My transplant started around 7 in morning. I was sedated and woke up only to have lunch and fell asleep again. My transplant completed around 7 in the night. Dr Diep gave acell injection. My prior hair transplant were 2000 FUE in oct 2015 from Dr Dinesh Gowda. Second was for 2700 FUT and 1100 FUE from Dr Mysore Venkat. I have attached pics just after the transplant and six month result.

    Dr. Prasad Hair Regeneration!

    Anybody know if his treatment can increase hair in crown region? I have some tiny hairs which are regrowing after I am taking finasteride from last 18 months.
  6. I had Mega hair transplant with Dr Venkatram Mysore in Oct 2016. He said he planted over 4400 grafts (FUT - 2700 , FUE - 1100, BHT - 660. The result is very poor growth. I got 40% growth in FUT, 15% growth in FUE, 0 % growth in BHT. The scar resulting from FUT is minimal and FUE is negligent. I paid close to $5500. I am now depleted with donor hair, only some expert in Body hair transplant can bring me out from norwood 5 to norwood 2 or 3 level. I can now truly understand why he does not provide results in his website.
