Dr Diep ~ 1776 Grafts Via FUE ~ 25 y/o Asian Male ~ Norwood 3

What's going on, guys?

I've been lurking this site for some time now and finally got a FUE procedure performed by Dr. Diep in late August 2018 to fill in the standard Norwood 3 recession.

The following pictures is 8 weeks post op. I will keep you guys updated on my progress.

@fatbastard12345 Looking very good wow. I am guessing you decided just to fill in the recession corners? Did you lower the nature peak of the hairline at all? Also did you opt to get the a-cell injection? I believe it's 500$ extra

Yep. Just the corners. I did not lower the widow's peak. I told Dr. Diep I wanted a hairline more proportional to my face and he actually drew me a hairline above my widow's peak. I did get the A-Cell injection, and yeah - it's $500 bucks.

Lol. My age is in the title, dude. I'm 25. I'm not on any medication for hair. Although, I did get an a-cell injection on the day of the procedure.

I paid for the $500 acell.. I’m already spending thousands .. might as well pay a little more if it helps with the healing .. I got $150 discount for it though , so. Only $350 for me .. the office manger  gave me a discount on it when they didn’t want to give me a discount on travelers discount.. since I am in state .. told them I just wanted to save some money so I can spend it on the Acell .. :)

Are there any randomized controlled trials (RCTs) showing a positive impact of ACell on hair growth? I'm already doing PRP, so I'd like to add ACell, but only if there is supportive RCT evidence...

I have been trimming the transplanted hairs because they are very thin and get all crumpled when my baseball cap presses on them all day, so I prefer to keep them short.

Did you happen to take any other post procedure picks like perhaps 7 days post op etc?

This is considered early? Hell yeah! Would you say this is more or less how your hair looked at 3 months post-op? Or was it too long ago to remember?

Yea it looked more or less the same, you’re in for a good result. Hope you don’t forget about us when your hair grows in.

Haha. I had no idea how much you guys appreciated these updates, so now I'll definitely make a point to keep you guys updated. Are you satisfied with the density of your transplant? From the Dr. Diep videos I've seen, even the guys with seemingly perfectly results wish they had more grafts.

Hair greed is a real thing and you will always want more hair, hair is like money can you really ever have enough lol. However, I am definitely satisfied and happy with my outcome.

The donor is healed. The area started feeling normal again at about 2 months. I don't know if the scar is still visible because my hair is too long to see it.

Oh very good! I just worry that sometimes people end up with like a moth eaten appearance for the first couple months in the donor area but it doesnt seem like thats the case for you then.
