    My Hair Loss Journey

    Great video Melvin. Your results are amazing, the density looks pretty darn good. It can be a life changing thing to go from being follicularly challenged, to having a nice head of hair. It shows without saying, you're very happy.
  2. It's nice to see hair where there was scalp before. It's looking great.
  3. Great results Doc. Congratulations.
  4. I fully appreciate the hairline Dr. Diep gave me. But probably more than anything I like that the Bosley plugs have disappeared. Even when my hair is wet, they're gone. I can't see them.
  5. Legend, when you mentioned earlier about having to get blood work done for Dr. Diep, I was a little surprised. They never mentioned that to me, and I never had it done. I wonder if it's because I had an FUT, and you were scheduled for an FUE...? Anyways, I wish you luck on your choice. Please keep us updated.
  6. This is going to turn out great.
  7. Picture taken on 11-12-18 exactly 9 months post op. I'm thinking of going to two months now between updates, up to 1 1/2 years. I'm sure my hair has some to go, just that any observable changes are slowing. When it's wet, on top shows a little more thinness than I'd like. Fortunately when it dries, you can't tell at all. The crown is a little thin, but that doesn't seem to bother me. I don't know if it's the adjusting of some meds I was on, the DHT blocking shampoo I'm using, but I'm noticing almost no hairs falling out. Nothing in the comb, just a few in the shower every couple weeks or so. I guess if I've made it this far in my life, chances are there won't be too much more hair loss, if any. I hope. I enjoy seeing everyone's updates. Quite a few though, seem to stop posting altogether way before their year and a half.
  8. I mentioned this on another thread. They (Dr. Diep), set me up for FUT five weeks after I applied. They called me three times with cancellations so I could have gotten in much sooner. But it was too much of a hassle for me to change my flight and hotel. FYI
  9. They tell you your money has to be paid in full, I think ten days before your surgery. If you're considering Dr. Diep just make sure you've paid well in advance. I sent them a check 30 days in advance just so there'd be no problems with payment.
