  1. And looks good too. No, looks great. I thought Elvis hair when I saw the picture. Isn't that amazing..?
  2. When Bosley did my first FUT in 1992 (yikes-those plugs), they didn't offer FUE. Not sure if anyone did because I didn't have internet until 1995. Thankfully my FUT with Dr. Diep in Feb. 2018 camouflaged them...they're gone. He gave me a great natural looking hairline, best thing I've ever done for myself. But that FUT looked ghastly for about six months. Can barely see the scar now.
  3. I agree with the rest...looks great Legend. Two thumbs up.
  4. When I had Dr. Diep do my FUT I had to have my local Dr. remove the stitches because I live in New Mexico. It was 14 days before I had all the blood clotting cleaned out, and he could do it. My scar is very thin and not easy to see. 98% of my shock loss grew back in. My question is, how many days passed before you had the stitches removed..? I'm no Dr., but if they were removed too soon, could that have caused the scar to widen..?
  5. I didn't opt for the A-Cell. Dr. Diep gave me an injection in each shoulder for swelling, no extra cost. I had swelling roll down my temples, but it really wasn't too bad. I took the pills they gave me for swelling also. Gone in 4 or 5 days.
  6. What a positive change..! Dr. Diep did it again.
  7. I noticed everyone that gets a FUT from Dr. Diep, including me had that band of abrasion across our foreheads. Is that some kind of retraint he puts on us to hold us still while he does the FUT..? I've always been curious about that, but didn't think to ask them.
  8. The numbness two three inches above my FUT incision , lasted 4 or 5 months. The numbess up on my crown, I didn't have any work done there but I guess the nerves got affected, lasted about 8 or 9 months. I occasionally would get a very sharp quick shot of pain. like somebody stabbed me with a needle. I just assumbed that was the nerves growing back together. That hasn't happened in six or seven months now. I'm 17 months post op.
  9. I think you and your Doctor made a good choice for where to put your new hairline. It looks natural there, and fits you well.
