Hi everyone,

 

Here is my timeline of my FUE hair transplant I had with Dr. Diep on 3/29/18. I had 1633 grafts placed to lower my hairline and fill in some recession on my temples. I also did the Acell treatment.

 

Here are some pics before, 3 days Post OP, and Pre OP

I'm a bit worried about the donor area looking patchy after it grows in. I told the doctor I wanted to use the smallest punch possible since I have fine hair but he insisted on using .9mm to 1mm for healthy grafts. I hope the larger punch didn't hurt the surrounding hair.

 

I've been applying neosporin pain, itch, and scar to the donor hoping to accelerate the healing process. It's quite red still and I hope that subsides soon. I'll have to wear a beanie to work for the coming week or two.

-Also added some donor pics in natural lighting

 

Does the donor area look okay?

Anybody whos undergone an FUE, let me know. Thank you.

With that punch size, anything under s number 2 guard, you'll likely see the dots.

 

Dr diep is known to use larger punches and it really shows. ... The post op photos of his work is always pretty bloody. Hope it works out for you. I know I'm not gonna be the only one that's says I don't think you needed a ht.

It actually doesn’t look too bad .. I’ve seen worse bloody donor areas from his clinic .. the work itself to ur recipient looks clean n dense ..

Yeah he did go kinda high on the donor area close to the non safe zone .. give it some time to heal and see how things go ..

- can u give a write up of ur experience on ur day of surgery , The techs , how many patients he was working on , n how long was ur procedure .. were u asleep most of the time ? Etc ..

He's using a punch size at more than double the diameter of what most FUE surgeons do. His results in the recipient are consistently top notch but I don't see how it's not totally reckless to opt for a surgeon without the same level of care for the donor.

He never should have done the HT on you in the first place. Too young, nothing wrong with your original hairline, and he went really low which could lead to issues down the road if you do have hair loss.

how old are you? personally i didnt think you needed to lower your hairline, your native hair was naturally perfect .. not even the best HT doctor can recreate what nature gave you

best of luck in your healing and growth
