From a very satisfied patient of Dr. Diep myself, I have every confidence this will turn out great for you. It's difficult to play the waiting game, I know, but you will be rewarded.
Yes please keep us updated on your progress.
I think if money were no object there are about 8 doctors in the US I would pick from who are all at the top of the game skill wise. Some variation in their style of work. I used Nader in Mexico. I have never seen a bad result from him, but he does have some results that aren't hoe runs, though most of the ho-hum results are simply not enough grafts being done for the large area that is more a result patients on a budget and a conservative approach.. In short, I think his graft survival rate is good as other good surgeons. Though he has nowhere near the number of reviews and information is power. So when you have a Dr. here that has hundreds of reviews vs one that has about 10..logically you have more assurance of their abilities over a range of patients and time. But with that presence comes a premium price. I think Dr. N is just under $2 a graft. I am only 5 months in and happy so far, but it's early yet. He is worth looking into if you are on a budget. There is another Dr. in Greenville, SC who I think get's around $5 a graft and has respectable results. I think as long as you go to someone who ONLY does HT and does it every day, you are going to get decent results. if they offer anything except HT in their practice...my advice is run away as fast as you can.
I am considering shaving my head down to a 1 guard maybe 2z
i have been doing this with sides but keeping hair long on top. It can look good but requires to blow dry and brush and maybe some hair toppik. I am hoping my results will thicken but just not liking texture of hair if it’s just straight out of shower. I really liked what I looked like after my head was shaved with the new hairline immediately after the fue. I am attaching two photos of my current hair please let me know if you think I should shave it let it regrow back before the 12 month point.
thanks for the input. If you want to see mor photos check out my hair loss post in the forum at Asmed
