  1. I will post a 1 year update in a few days, thanks for following/paying attention and asking about it. I appreciate your opinion but I respectfully disagree. I love the hairline because I am only 34 and I don't want a 60 year old's hair line. I do understand what you are saying about using the grafts in small areas in order to be densely packed but if I don't have enough grafts, I am perfectly fine with having a thinner look and adding Toppik to the hair to make it look fuller. Thanks, I am thinking I will need to have at least 2 more procedures to cover the whole head and maybe a 4th, if I have enough donor supply.
  2. Ill post the 10 month update in 10 days, but honestly, no new growth other than the hair getting loner.
  3. It looks really good brushed back. You are only at 7 months and from what I've read and seen, a lot of the thickening will start now and go on to about 18 months. I am at 8.5 month (different Doc) and your results already look better than mine. I am also a slow grower. Good luck with the growing and I will continue to follow your progress.
  4. I agree, a nice improvement from where I started. After the 12 months are up, I will contact him and see what he says and decide if I will go to him again.
  5. He is definitely someone of my list for my future HT. Thanks for the well wishes.
  6. it looks pretty smooth. I run my hand through it and tap it down a bit before I set it with the hair spray.
  7. Are you talking about the pictures with toppik. Yea it looks like a full head of hair. But you can see my actual result on the pictures I posted before the toppik pics.
  8. It looks good in person. The only time it make look off is if I put too much in the hair line and it looks too dark or clumpy. I will then just brush that part out with hair brush and lightly apply again where you can see the hair strands. Looks more natural that way. I'll say this, after getting the transplant done, my toppik time has gone down dramatically. I can do this in about 5 minutes. Before it would take 15 minutes minimum because I would have to brush the hair forward and all sorts of stuff. I could definitely notice people looking at my hair when they were talking to me and that made me super self conscious. Hopefully I can get another procedure done (preferably a large one) and get more thickness all around and call it a day.
  9. Haha no trolling. There is a good amount in but I've gotten good at using it. My actual hair without toppik looks like the pics above that I posted at 8 months which was a few days ago.
  10. Here are some pictures with Toppik. Thank goodness for this invention because I can walk outside without too much insecurity. I am sure most of you can tell that there is something in there but the average person can't tell.
  11. Thanks for the honest response. I agree with everything you said. Lets hope its gets a bit better.
  12. No i didn't get refunded, there was actually more to it but I don't want to share money publicly. If you want more information, I will be happy to answer if you pm me. To be honest with you, I am not sure who did the extractions. I was pretty knocked out with the pill he game me. I do remember waking up for lunch and then waking up intermittently after lunch to 2 techs placing the grafts into my scalp. I do know that Dr. Diep did make the incisions because I was informed that he would be doing that. I knew I would need a 2nd and even a 3rd surgery for the mid scalp and crown. I was told that from this surgery that the front should be taken care of and should give the illusion of density when grown out longer. I don't think I will get much more density but I am happy that my face is framed and that there is hair in that area. I was bare before. Thanks for the well wishes, lets hope it gets a bit better.
  13. Thanks Melvin. I forgot to mention this to you in the past but I have been following you on youtube for a while now and your videos helped me make the decision to go with Dr. Diep. You had a amazing result.
  14. Okay I will take some pictures soon. I have Toppik in at the current moment. I would love to but I can't risk it with the med I am on now. If I stop taking this med then I may possibly get on Fin but I honestly doubt that. I used Minoxidil for 4 years in the past but didn't really see much of a benefit. It may stopped a lot of quick loss in the crown but I still had hair falling out so I stopped in 2015. Yes, I will probably not do anything for at least 4 more months. Then I will start ramping up my research to see which Dr I should go with. Maybe Diep again or Erdogan, Bisanaga, Rahal, Feriduni. I have been seeing a lot of great results from Dr. Coto in Spain on youtube. Do any of you know or have more information on him?
  15. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the donor area during that time. I didn't think about it taking pics of that area then.
  16. I'm thinking the same thing. No I don't take any hair meds. Finasteride combined with the med I take now dialy may cause some side effects and I don't want to risk it.
  17. Thanks for the detailed feedback. Everything you said is what I am pretty much thinking. I am also following a lot of Dr. Erdogan's patients and more than likely contact them for a 2nd large transplant. But I'll wait at least until the 12 month mark before I do anything.
  18. Whats up everyone, here is my 8th month update. I really don't feel like much has happened since last month, other than the hairs getting longer. As usual, tell me what you guys think.
  19. Your result looks great! Hopefully I can look just as good in my mid 50s!
