Dr. John Diep is an innovator in the field of hair restoration and performs both high quality follicular unit transplantation (FUT) via strip harvesting and advanced follicular unit excision (formerly known as follicular unit extraction) (FUE) with excellent results. Dr. Diep fellowshipped under Dr. William Rassman and has been performing hair transplantation exclusively at his clinic in Los Gatos, California since 2007. Dr. Diep shares Dr. Rassman's philosophy for putting the patient's best interest above technical dogma as well as his commitment for producing only the best results.
Dr. Diep is a diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS) and was chosen by Newsweek Magazine as one of the best hair loss doctors in the hair restoration field. He has ten years of hair restoration experience and specializes in most hair loss types for men and women. Dr. Diep’s skillful technique of creating natural hair lines has made him a popular choice with thousands of patients, including celebrities. He is also a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).
Dr. John Diep has performed over a thousand hair restoration procedures including celebrities. He and his full time staff of technicians have the experience and ability to perform large densely packed sessions of ultra refined hair transplantation exceeding 3000 grafts when appropriate for the patient. He also operates on only one patient per day.
Dr. Diep takes a customized approach with each patient. He is very skillful and passionate in creating natural hairlines, restoring eyebrows, filling in scars due to facelift, and fixing old hair plugs. Dr. John Diep also specializes in hairline reconstruction, eyebrow transplantation, scar reduction, facial hair transplantation and correcting/repairing hair plugs.
Dr. Diep uses advanced, state of the art techniques in all surgical hair restoration procedures he performs. Dr. Diep utilizes the trichophytic closure technique for all strip hair transplants he performs in order to decrease tension on the wound and uses both motorized and manual punches with a modified serrated tip as small as .9mm depending on the needs of the patient in order to reduce the appearance of scarring during FUE. Dr. Diep uses tiny 20 gauge needles when creating recipient sites in order to minimize any trauma to the scalp.
Dr. Diep feels that his FUE procedure can rival that of strip as long as follicular units are viable upon extraction. He developed his own FUE instrument called "The Diep Extractor", which he believes helps to minimize transection and damage to the follicles during the extraction process.
Dr. Diep believes that FUE is less invasive, less painful, the risk of infection is minimal and the scalp heals faster than traditional FUT/strip procedures. According to Dr. Diep, limitations of FUE includes blind dissection which sometimes causes additional transection during the extraction process and fewer grafts can be harvested than with traditional FUT/strip.
