This guy is doctor diep pride n joy .. half Asian and white ..  he sure did make the most of his grafts .. this guy won’t need another transplant .. he was also a fast grower by 6th month .. I watched his videos from early on .. so not everyone should expect these results .. but yeah diep did him good .. costed him around $40,000 .. worth it in his case ..

Pics look like 4K too. Dr. Diep, if this was all done from one procedure, this honestly could be a frontrunner for greatest HT of all time.

Unreal. Mother of god.  I had 10K + grafts..  started not even close to this bald..    My hair is thinner than this by far. FML.   This is the best hair transplant I've seen in awhile.  Envious.

With that many grafts while isn’t ur hair as dense as u want densefmdream? Was ur donor hair fine / thin? How many surgeries did u have ? I really hate to have so many surgeries .. 

the op .. I’m pretty sure he has two procedures in a two day period .. since diep does around 2000-2500 grafts fue max a day .. he usually  does have another fut patient with his fue patient though from what I heard .. that guy has has thick coarse Asian hair , n with his mixed white background probably have a dense donor also .. so results like that are rare .

Yes @Legend007 this guy was a perfect candidate. NW6,  but very high sides, great hair caliber, dense donor, and deep pockets . He had 11,524 hairs moved. Wow.  Diep executed beautifully. Its an exceptional result.

Obviously the result is fantastic, but also its a case those who suggest that juvenile hairlines don't look good on older men should be directed to.

Fantastic work Dr Diep!

Although, I hope you gave this patient some of his money back...for using his likeness and testimonial online many times to highlight your great work. ?

I would just like confirmation whether this was FUT or FUE 

This was FUT

Dr Diep is one of the best HT doctors in the world when it comes to results IMO, His hairlines sometimes look better then someones natural born hairline.

I still dont understand how he is able to get so much coverage with the small amount of grafts he uses, To me it seems most top docs need twice the number of grafts to achieve the same result.

how does 10K hairs get this kind of tremendous density and coverage? does the gentleman have tremendous hair thickness?

 

 

I've seen transplants with 15K hairs not look half as impressive

I've seen transplants with 15K hairs not look half as impressive

Several things, the strategic placement of the grafts, the patients hair thickness and hair style all add to the “illusion if density”.

When an excellent surgeon such as Dr. Diep executes his plan perfectly, this is the result. However, Chris is also doing very well at combing his hair in a way that provides the most visual density. 

In the end, this is one of the most impressive results I've ever seen and I’m truly happy for Chris.

actually looking at it again, I realized what it is

 

He has a narrow area of balding. His sides are very high and his head surface is fairly small. I think he also has tremendous thickness/coarseness and donor density like most asian men do. That plus obvious surgeon skill - the hairline is especially excellent

 

Most indian/asian transplants look fantastic as long as the gentleman is not a norwood 7 because of the hair traits. anything in the NW3-5 range looks spectacular most of the time

    • Sorry about your results, disappointing given Dieps top tier status and the amount he charges, and even more disappointing that your fathers results from him turned out worse than yours as you say. Diep should offer you a courtesy partial refund or a complimentary touch-up for you and your father on the same day, it would be the right thing to do.
    • Hi Laser,  Thanks so much for the great response.  That makes sense. I guess I just wasn't too sure if the fact that some areas had gotten a bit worse meant that it isn't working overall. Apologies, I meant to write I'm actually on 0.5mg, so half the recommended dosage. Perhaps I should up it to 1. Do you think someone who may be destined for an advanced pattern can retain enough hair indefinitely by using fin to have a transplant? My dad is about as advanced as one can get.
    • I've been on Finasteride for about 2-3 years.  Good for you. In this time, I've had mixed results. As in, some areas got better, whilst others worsened slightly.  The medication is intended to help you with retention.  Thus, if you look the same a year later, the medication did its job.  If you look better, it just means the miniaturized hair thickened.  Only a small percentage of patients experience this.  My suggestion is to continue the use of the medication and don't stop.  If areas look worse, it could be you are experiencing shedding of the native hair which is normal. I've also heard that finasteride is not as effective for the front portion of ones hair - is this true? And if so, should I continue with it whilst having mixed results?  Based on what you've written, you should continue using the medication.  You've indicated the front has remained the same.  This means the medication is working.  The fact you are showing visual enhancement in other areas should be enough to encourage you to continue and not stopping. The use of the medication is not going to facilitate a transplant.  What it will do is help you achieve a much fuller set of hair.  Keep in mind, no one with an advanced pattern has enough donor to allow for a full set of hair.  It is imperative you retain as much of the native stuff as you can. Now, let me briefly get on your case about how much medication you're taking..... The parent medication to finasteride is Proscar.  It is a 5 mg tab.  Once Merck completed their studies, they confirmed that 1 mg was all that was needed to experience hair retention. They also confirmed a less than 1% chance of experiencing a side effect.  By taking a 5 mg tab, you are multiplying the possibility of a side effect by 5 fold.  Why do that?  Talk to your doctor about taking 1 mg. 
    • I believe medical treatments like fin and minox work best in the crown areas so your experience matches the norm (meaning that such medications are not as effective on the front) The forelock is that area in the middle of the front of your hairline, so if you are a classic NW3 it sounds like your temples have just continued to recede While continuing any medications is always a decision to made by the patient, as long as you don't have any side effects then what is the harm? Especially given the fact your dermatologist has noticed more volume in areas and you've noticed some improvements as well.  If you planning any future surgery it's also strongly recommended by most doctors and clinics to be on fin for at least a year before any surgical date in order to prevent any shockloss to the surrounding native hairs, and also to continue taking it in order to maintain as much native hair as you have for the future. Otherwise you'll just be chasing any future hairloss with more surgeries.    
    • This the main reason I didn’t go with diep .. even though I already deposited the $1000 .. I rather risk losing the deposit than to have subpar results where he won’t fix it .. it’s always the customers fault if ur transplant don’t turn out well . Was the feeling I got when I was speaking the office manager ... hair transplants aren’t guaranteed . But if u don’t have good results , at least attempt to fix it .. who wants to spend $15,000- $20,000 n not get what they paid for.. I mean if ur results were B- quality . It’s still acceptable ,. But this is C- quality, how can u not attempt to fix things ..  they can’t ! Because they booked too far in advance , to fix the mistake they did on u will cost double the money .. the free repair + the $20,000 they would be losing to another potential patient that could be having surgery that day .. it’s just buisiness to the clinic , n another number .. but to us, it’s our savings n A permanent result that lasts forever ..  Good or bad .. clinics need to understand that ..
