Dr. Diep 2,043 Grafts - 35 yr old Asian Male

Recommended Posts

Hmm honestly you should text that exact picture you posted to Dr. Diep and ask what he thinks about it. He responds fast and will tell you if you need a steroid shot (if it's alopecia areata) to fix it or not.  @Jiveturkey82

Month 1 - back and sides.  Some shock loss in the back created bald spots.  Not sure if it is my imagination, but I have a lot  more white hairs on the harvested side now lol.

Month 2 update - most of the hair has shed.  A bit concerned at this point as not a lot of stubble/regrowth has happened.  Also, not sure if this a coincidence or not, but I suddenly have a lot of gray hairs....comparing my pre-op pictures on page to now...it is a significance difference.  Donor area also does not look good.

I actually inspired one of my coworkers to go get a HT.  He said he had been looking for awhile and after I did it...seeing how people didn't really think it was a big deal nudged him to  just do it.  He actually just went to a local HT doctor, Ken Williams.  What was surprising about his donor area after coming back 1.5 weeks after operation...you couldn't even tell  he had a HT.  No scarring, no redness...no holes.  It was amazing compared to my donor area....

3 Month Update: Things moving a bit slower than I would like, but looks like there is some stuff happening.  Right side looks really thin still and I suspect it is over harvested.  Gray hairs coming out like crazy, wonder if it is just a coincidence...

You seem right on track for 3 months. Things are progressing as expected at 3 months. I think this will be an awesome result. The donor looks better as well. Happy growing 🙌
