Very interesting case:
- Shows that ultimate density is not the holy grail for a natural result
- People in their 50s still care about their hair
- Giving his conservative hairstyle, I wonder why this patient was focused on FUE
- The right/left view pics reveal that the angle of incisions change heavily within the first rows of the hairline (never seen it that clearly before and sorry for the lack of words) … the little things make a great result.
+1 for the donor pics and some information about the harvesting method (manual, Waw,...)
On one hand, I imagine business is booming. All the videos on youtube showing HT procedures in detail, along with amazing results, has to be good for business. (These videos/results which have MILLIONS of views have me strongly considering a procedure myself.) On the other hand, people can visit places like Turkey and save $15,000-$25,000. How much do you think discounted places like Turkey are affecting US businesses? I notice US surgeons routinely host open Q&A events around the country, presumably to attract clients. If they had all the clients they wanted, why would they travel around? I also notice ads for some top surgeons showing up in my FB feeds. Maybe it's not booming after all? Thoughts?
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.
