  1. I don't claim to know much about it, but if a Doctor tried to add more density by adding grafts, isn't there a danger of transecting the existing transplanted hairs.?
  2. Mine fell out pretty quick, I think around two or three weeks. It's absolutely normal to think think they'll not grow back in. But around the three or four month mark the little guys start coming up.
  3. I had some anxiety about going through TSA, and if they'd want me to remove my cap. I guess walking through the X-Ray scanner they didn't see anything, because nobody said anything to me.
  4. Scar looks real good. Hey, I wonder if Dr. Diep has changed the way he does things. Two years ago, Jenny brought me in a small cup with 7 or 8 pills in it. Within 30 minutes I was out. I barely remember being woke up for lunch then more pills. Awake the last hour or so as they were finishing up. I had zero pain. (FUT) Since I had to fly from San Jose to NM, I wore a very loose fitting ball cap during the trip. Not too much discomfort the next few days...maybe I got lucky, but it took six months for the numbness to subside. I wish I had been close enough to go to his office for the suture removal. I think your HT is going to turn out great.
  5. Thanks again Melvin. I do get comments from people when they find out I'm 66. The HT helps of course, but the only thing I can think of is despite growing up in the sixties, I've never smoked or done any drugs. I really think if you hit that stuff hard it ages you.
  6. I thought I'd post my 24 month picture, and last one, since I'm sure there won't be any more changes. Thanks one more time to Dr. Diep and his staff for helping me make this journey.
  7. And looks good too. No, looks great. I thought Elvis hair when I saw the picture. Isn't that amazing..?
  8. 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.
  9. I agree with the rest...looks great Legend. Two thumbs up.
  10. 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..?
