  1. I was just trying give you an option that may have not thought of, but any way good luck.
  2. Hey man, try not to stress now. Might as well wait it out and see how the result turns out. I think you should look into smp. You can smp the donor area and keep it buzzed at a 1 or 2 and have an undercut look. I am actually planning on doing that too.
  3. It definitely looks better than before. Only concern is that there isn't enough density in the frontal 1/3rd but it does still look good. Hopefully there will be more growth and thickening since it is only 8 months.
  4. From where you were to where you are now, this is fantastic. Also, I've read that the crown will take 18 months to show full growth so maybe it'll thicken up a bit more.
  5. Wow, incredible and its only been 6 and a half months!!!
  6. Hello everyone, thanks for the feedback and discussion but my goal wasn't to have a negative conversation about Dr. Diep as a Hair Transplant physician. Clearly he is a good doctor who is consistently producing good results otherwise he wouldn't be recommended on this forum nor would I have gone to him. As I stated previously, I would recommend him even after the results. Unfortunately we are a part of the percentage of people who sometimes don't get the result they expected but that doesn't change the fact that I was/am secure with the decision of going to Dr. Diep. With that being said, I still stand by my previous opinions about both of the procedures. I will pm Melvin and talk to him about the situation and we will go from there.
  7. He ended up not working on the temples like he planned to on the initial outline. He focused everything on the top front 1/3rd of the scalp
  8. Thanks for your input. Here is to hoping my next procedure gets me good coverage, at least at the front.
  9. Here are my father's results. I will be posting the pictures we sent to Dr. Diep's office, my father's pre-op pics, and his post-op pics. He received more than 2600 grafts places in his frontal 1/3rd via FUT. I was hoping that my father got a result similar to SWdan's since they are similar in age (62y/o) and had almost the same amount grafts done by FUT One thing I will say I've noticed is that physicians who were surgeons before they became hair transplant docs definitely seem to suture the scalp skin more seamlessly after a FUT. My father still has an indentation along his suture line. I am just comparing this with all the work I've seen from Dr. Lindsey and his FUT suture lines. My father's scalp could be a 1 off for Diep and maybe Lindsey would create the same indentation, I don't know, but I am just stating what I've noticed. Not here to trash any physician but I just want to give honest feedback so other people have an idea of what they may be getting. (My father is a physician and I am a 4th year medical student, if that means anything to anyone.) This picture looks a lot better because its taken in very low light and he dyed the heck out of his hair and scalp here. Pictures of his scar about 2 weeks after the surgery. I think there was lot of shock loss around the scar which makes it look worse than it really was. The hair seemed to have grown back now but there are more noticeable indentations to the touch at the beginning and the end of the suture line above both left and right ears. I don't have pictures of the donor area right now but you can't notice anything unusual visually so its safe to say the all the hair grew back. Also from the last time I saw my father, it didn't seem like the scar was wide, so that's a positive, but I'll have to check again when I see him next.
  10. I will be posting some pics of my father on this thread to show you guys what I am talking about. I am following quiet a few Erdogan patients that had surgery in 2018 and 2019 to see how their results turn out. Like you said, I've seen a good amount of poor results by his clinic recently and am a bit skeptical. I don't want to waist donor grafts as I'm sure all of us on this forum feel the same way. I've seen a lot of recent posts by Hair of Istanbul on IG and youtube. Any idea about them? A good amount, maybe a quarter of the small bottle. But I buy fibers off of ebay in bulk to save on the cost. Couldn't have said it better. I have the same feelings as you when it comes to how he runs the business. I will try and see what I can do about a refund. I think I will enlist Melvin's help because he seems to have a good relationship with Dr. Diep. Yes I agree and for a quarter of the price. That's my main issue, the price is so expensive and to get this result is a bit disheartening, but I am in this journey for the long haul. I knew what I was getting into when I started, thanks to this forum and other forums like this.
  11. I agree, I guess I am one of his "bad" ones Yea, its unfortunate I didn't get much density. I wish I was able to get what you got with your 2 transplants done by him, but what can you do now... Thanks for the positive outlook, I'm definitely trying. On a side note, my father got 1 done by him the next day and his came out even worse than mine. I was very very disappointed in his results. I wish he would do refunds but the contracts we sign don't allow it based on the verbiage that was used. I guess the both us were some of the unlucky ones, more so my father though.
  12. Hello everyone, it's been exactly 15 months since my hair transplant with Dr. Diep. I think I have done all the growing that can happen. My thoughts on the HT is that it was a success in that I have a frame but it definitely isn't a home run nor is it one he would post on his youtube page. There is definitely a lack of density for the amount of grafts that were placed. I am pretty sure all the remaining hairs that were there in those areas before the transplant fell out but I also think that not all the grafts that were transplanted survived and grew. I would say maybe 70% grew especially in the hairline. I went for his medium tight hairline and its pretty clear in the pictures that they all didn't take. Also I would like to add that I have been losing a lot of hair the last few months. It feels like during every hair wash I am losing hundreds and hundreds of hairs. Very disheartening to see but I knew that would happen since I am not taking any medications. I am okay with that because I am taking other meds that might interfere with them so it is what it is at this point. I had a 12 and half month follow up with him and he said that another 1500 grafts to the area that he already did will give me the density I am looking for. He said he could probably do 2000 grafts and work backwards towards the mid scalp. I would definitely recommend Dr. Diep because he was pretty honest and at least gave me a hairline where I can add toppik to it and it will stay. With that being said, I am thinking about going to Eugenix in India to get a 5000 plus session done so I don't have to keep going through multiple highly priced transplants in the States. My plan is to harvest whatever I have left in the donor area and then go with beard grafts. After all that is done, I will probably do scalp micropigmentation for the entire head. This way I can cover up the FUE dots (in case I have the donor depleted look) and also add the look of density to the top the head. If you guys have any other questions or comments please feel free to post. Thanks for following my journey from my first post 9 months ago. Side by Side comparison of the hairline
