I went to Dr. Diep of the MHTA Clinic in Los Gatos, CA. He had good reviews and seem to be a successful surgeon. I regretted it immediately after. I haven't worn my real hair out in 2 years, which is a horrible way to live because of a someone's mistake. 1. He focused on putting grafts where I had hair already, leaving me with a small amount for the hairline which is so transparent and doesn't cover the bumpy scars he left from leaving too much skin on the base of each graft. 2. Where he drew a line on my forehead to show where my new hairline would be looked nothing like what I walked out of there with. It is a scam. He asks before surgery that if he feels you need extra grafts will you be willing to pay and of course I choose yes because I want it to be perfect. He didn't even accomplish what he promised me so Im afraid to say I may have paid an additional $1000 for imaginary grafts. 3. I was told my head would not be shaved bald. They shaved my hairline so far back that I was not able to go out in public without looking completely crazy. And when I asked what they expected me to do to go to work, their answer was that I wear a weave, because I was advised not to wear a wig which makes no sense at all because how could I possibly put a weave on scalp? 4. They carelessly shaved into my hair and cut some length from other sections of my head because they did not comb or section apart my hair they just shaved all kinds of different directions. Here's the funny part they picked my hair up off the floor and braided it into hair that was still connected and put a rubberband around it so I wouldn't know what they had done. So after surgery I'm sore and in very much pain and needed to keep my hair braided so it would stay out of my wounds so maybe two weekend later when I take out the braids I realized just how much hair they had cut by "accident". 5. I had a question recently. I have these goosebumps in my hairline that are very noticable and I googled that it is a mistake on the surgeons part so I called with my question I was told I would be called back I never was. I had to call again and of course they'll blame there mistakes on your body and how their mistake is your bodies reaction and it's common among whatever race you are that this happens......really? 6. Lastly Dr. diep does not do his surgeries his technicians do and they are careless, probably don't really care about how successful surgeries are. Multiple different technicians do your surgery and it is noticable in the end result, because some do better than others and you will end up looking rather inconsistent, when I saw his before and after pics I thought they were great look very closely for imperfections they are easier to notice when they are on your own hairline. 7. It has been seven months and the front of my hair looks very see through. Dr. Diep likes to cover his screw ups by saying you may need more than one surgery for more density which makes him more money. Also his favorite is, is that he likes to create a hairline that isn't perfect and not too dense because it will look fake but in reality it is to cover up any mistakes or incompetence of his office. Now my hairline is shaped round on the left and square on the right. 8.DO NOT GO TO DR DIEP ONCE HE HAS YOUR MONEY HE NO LONGER CARES ABOUT YOU I COULD NOT EVEN TALK TO HIM ABOUT MY INQUIRIES AFTER MY SURGERY. I am no longer a priority as his patient, he has all the time in the world for you before your surgery he even talks to you for your consultation but after that your history. 9. I just pray whatever happens that my result are decent and don't require any corrective surgeries just to look semi-normal. I worry quite often after having this surgery. I just wanted people to know my experience. 10. Once during surgery my meds wore off because your not given anesthesia your given a cocktail of drugs in a cup. They acted as if they didn't want to sedate me again. After i paid $12,000 plus $1000 do supposedly extra grafts that I can't tell exist because my hair looks thin and he didn't even reach the marker line he drew, anyways after I pay that much you can't sedate me again so I won't feel your staff stab me repeatedly with a needle into my head!!!!! Beware people!
I had my FUE surgery done on June 6th, 2014 by Dr. John Diep. Before selecting Dr. Diep as my surgeon, I did extensive research for about a year on FUE procedures and looked at many before and after videos. After viewing some of Dr. Diep's videos on youtube, I was instantly intrigued. I liked how detailed his videos were and how he explained everything in all of his videos because each patient/case is unique. I also loved the fact that he was active on youtube and posting RECENT videos of his work. This made me even more comfortable. I knew then I had found my surgeon! I flew in from Maryland and arrived in San Jose on June 5th. When I arrived at his clinic on June 6th, we were greeted with his staff which they were pleasant. They also asked what type of lunch I wanted as it was going to be a long day for me! I met Dr. Diep shortly afterwards and he explained to me everything that was going to go down. He then outlined my hairline and areas where he was going to do my work. After seeing this, I was excited to get this process started. After the procedure, he gave me some instructions of what to do in the coming days/weeks/months. The after pics are were taken today (7/4/2015). This is the longest I have let my hair grow since the surgery. Before I kept my hair cut low (1) so everything could look even while I was waiting for my new hair to grow. After a year, I can honestly say the surgery was a success! I told Dr. Diep I stare at my rear view mirror sometimes looking at my hairline...lol. It just feels good to have a straight hairline once again!

Info on me: Name: Jeremy Age: 32 Flew in from Maryland. Here are my BEFORE pics (taken day of surgery (6/6/2014) and the recent pics taken today (7/4/2015). On the recent pics, this is the longest I have let my hair grow since the day of surgery. Before then, I had kept it low at a 1 to give time for my implanted hair to grow. My last hair cut was 2 months ago. Every week since then, I have been getting more and more coverage.
