Post by pjhair » 2 months ago

Incredible results. Can anyone guess what product he is using to style his hair like that?

He has a really good hair line in the video. Was he a "diffuse" thinner on top before he did it?

People with black hair can have incredible results. Blond people with white skin need double the Grafts for the same results.

The video shows his pre-transplant hair. He had no hair at the top. He was probably a NW5.

I'm guessing he's using pomade. Dr. Diep's patients seem to always have phenomenal results, and that man is no exception. Diep's probably the best or one of the best hair transplant surgeons in the US. I only wish he didn't charge $10+ per graft (I believe he's that expensive).

I don't usually say this, but his hair line was put lower than necessary. not really a bad thing, but the doc couldve conserved some grafts just in case...

I almost feel like it’s unethical for a doctor to post such a result. I know Dr. Diep says in the video that results vary but this (it seems to me) is such a freakish result it’s only going to mislead patients or give false expectations. Lucky dude though.

The guy in the video is probably using Pomeade. It's a very sticky substance that
keeps in hair in place, and is better for people with thinning hair than mouse/gel
because it keeps the direction in place. There is no "fly away" hair.

Honestly, the dude is way balder than me. I find it hard to believe that such a shitty situation could be reversible. If legit, It's one of the best results I've ever seen. Maybe he was saved by thick donor zone.

I really do like the look and idea of having a low hair line, such as below:

Buuut, sometimes it can be detrimental to certain faces. like it can make your face (or middle part of it) look way too long

Lots of people are searching "dr diep unethical" on Google and finding this page.

So I decided to dig a little and it seems Dr Diep suffers from similar criticism that I've seen applied to ASMED and Koray Erdogan.

Which is to blast 5000 grafts on a 22 year old NW3 to make get a super thick dense-packed NW1 result, and they seem to aim for that result by any means possible, which means that they will often harvest way outside the safe zone (something I've now seen many times with ASMED).

If the patient is sure of what he's doing, why not? But that could lead to some regret in the future, even though it could be advocated that having more hair in your youth is more important, and of course, you could go there assuming that new treatments will be available when you reap the negative consequences of this kind of hair transplant.
