    Default Outstanding Experience with Dr. Scott Alexander-Phoenix, AZ

    I'm only 2 weeks past my surgery, FUT-3,000 grafts, but wanted to share my great experience with Dr. Alexander in Phoenix.

    I've been looking on this message board for a few years. The opinions and information are a tremendous resource. After researching different Dr.'s results, along with the types of hair loss I have experience, some between hairs, frontal loss, and the crown area, I felt Dr. Alexander was the best fit for me. Another key aspect besides the quality and number of grafts, was the linear scar issue. Dr. Alexander's donor site scars are very clean and sealed very tight, resulting in a basically invisible scar. I had my stitches out at the one week mark,and I am very pleased with how it's healing.


    Weeks before the procedure I had a phone consultation with a list of questions. Dr. Alexander just put me at ease, about things to do before the surgery, and also what to expect after the surgery. With the reading I had done on the various forums, and the information Dr. Alexander had given me, those combined definitely calmed my nerves on the day of the surgery. Everything went exactly according to plan.

    I flew to Phoenix to have the surgery done. Dr. Alexander and his entire staff are first class. They are kind and really did care about my comfort throughout the entire process, including providing lunch and calling a cab to take me back to my hotel after. During the surgery I watched a movie and Dr. Alexander made sure I was comfortable each step of the way. The surgery day went exactly as planned. I felt at ease throughout each stage of the day, from the morning while the donor site was being done, to the afternoon while the grafts were going in. Also, the grafts regarding healing does go very smoothly with the Acell that Dr. Alexander uses. Around the 8 day mark all of my scabs came off.

    I truly can't say enough good things about Dr. Alexander and his staff. They took their time and were very attentive.

    I know how hard it is losing your hair and trying to pick a HT Dr. I wish everyone reading this considering a HT the best of luck on your journey.

    Since it's so early, I'll just post this picture for now. Post Op Day 1 to give those just starting out researching what it looks like the day after.
    If anyone has any questions I'm happy to answer, just shoot me a message.

    Default Outstanding Experience with Dr. Scott Alexander-Phoenix, AZ (7 week Update)

    It's still early, but I am 7 weeks past my surgery date of July 1 and wanted to update this thread with some pictures before the surgery, a few more after, and to this point.

    At about the 4 week mark most of the grafts had fallen out. I am very pleased with how the scar is healing and the overall process in general. It's exactly what I expected.

    I'll start with the first picture pre-op showing no real hairline and a good bit of thinning in the front as well.

    You can see the front grafted area in the 2nd picture. (2 days post op) You might notice a little swelling in the forehead,etc that occurred around day 2-3. By day 4-5 it had completely gone away. It is completely normal.

    My crown had several bald spots as you can see in the 3rd picture. The 4th picture (Day 1 post-op) shows how Dr. Alexander was able to put a lot of grafts in my much needed crown area.

    The 5th picture shows what the grafted area looks like about a week out, where the grafted hairs are noticeable.

    The last few pictures are from this week, close to 7 weeks post op. I have continued the daily regiment of Finasteride and Rogaine.

    6 month update:

    Happy New Year everyone. I'm exactly 6 months post-op. The hairline and crown areas have continued to fill in very nicely. I am extremely happy with my progress, results, and the natural look of it all. The time really has gone by pretty quick week by week, and month by month, as the hairs have come in. It's very nice on a windy day how my hair all stays together now, and does not look like a mop like before my surgery. It's just small, but big things, like that making a huge difference.

    A few friends that know about my HT were amazed and super impressed over the holidays. I am 33 years old by the way.


    The first two pictures are pre-op. The next four pictures are from just yesterday, 6 months post-op.
