  1. I read your Yelp review, it sounds like you had a really bad experience. Did Dr. Diep do the extractions? Did he make the channels/incisions? I heard it's common for techs to do most or all of the implanting, but did he at least come in and check on their work? (Side note, I noticed on his website that there is a Hair Tech position available. For some reason it makes me uncomfortable to see that job listing.) I'm curious to see your pre-op photos. I can see the thin area on your right side that you mentioned in your review, but I'm wondering how your hair would look if you grew it out? Have you tried growing it out? I don't think I've ever seen someone with HT wear their hair as short as yours. Or do you always wear your hair this short? I really empathize with what you're dealing with. You mentioned "pimples caused by in grown hairs all over my scalp (many of which I still have 15 months post-op)". Did Dr. Diep explain what caused this? With your level of dissatisfaction and poor results (I still haven't seen your pre-op photos so I'm just taking you at your word) I'm surprised he wanted to charge you another $12,000 to fix things. There should be no charge.
  2. I have no problem with locker room talk in my private life, seriously, but a public forum where we're talking about real people...it's just not cool man.
  3. Inspiring results, congrats! I think the most daunting thing for me about getting this procedure done is the waiting game. I don't know if I'll be excited/hopeful for the growth phase, or anxious that it's not going to work and that I've made a big mistake. More likely I'll probably oscillate back and forth. If I actually schedule a HT, I'll probably start another thread about how to handle the "mental game" of this procedure. I have fair skin too so I'll probably have the redness for months too. Btw, you don't really need it BUT a little Toppik sprinkled on the crown will completely hide the thinning look. You're still in very good shape but the Toppik could come in handy in the future if necessary imo.
  4. This is a question for people who have been following this industry for a while: If money and travel were not issues, which doctors would be in your top five list for hair restoration surgery? (Doctors must be able to do FUE procedures) Thanks!
  5. Keep in mind Dr. Mohebi has two practices already and is currently getting a third one off the ground, I really doubt he has time to spend in online forums etc. For you to imply that he, or any doctor for that matter, is doing something wrong by not participating in an online forum seems unfair to me.
  6. I was also confused about this. I feel that people who fly to get these bargain basement prices are all playing Russian roulette. I doubt a doctor of ten years would do this. With that said, if everything in the post is accurate (I didn't make it to the end to be honest), I truly feel for you man, it sounds like a terrible experience. Do you have any photos to share?
  7. I would imagine because he's busy performing HTs. But that's just a guess.
  8. Does anybody know how to increase the font size on this board? It's quite small on my phone. I tried increasing the font size within my phone settings and on chrome but it didn't do anything. I can pinch and zoom which definitely increases the sizebut the text doesn't wrap so it's hard to read.
  9. That's good to hear! Looking forward to my consultation even more now.
  10. Did they give you an estimate on how many donors you have left for future procedures?
  11. I learned recently on the forum that some doctors require the patient to sign an NDA (Non-disclosure agreement). I'd like to know more about these NDAs, and what they include. Does it mean you're not allowed to leave a negative review for the doctor if your procedure goes bad? Or just no posting photos? Personally, I'd be really hesitant to go to a place that requires a strict NDA. It seems this would take all accountability away. And it would make me suspicious of their online reviews.
  12. "Managing expectations isn’t spoken about enough and I’m going to make it my mission to educate the masses. " Melvin, I appreciate that you admit to using fibers even after your HT. I've tried Toppick on my crown and it's amazing stuff for sure, but I have so little hair overall that I don't bother with it anymore. If I get a HT, I'll be prepared to use it again.
  13. I just skimmed through this thread, great results! I'm impressed you faced/conquered so many fears and got this procedure done. Congrats!
