Default 2900 grafts with Dr. Alexander

I first started with a consult at Bosely's and I am glad I found this website after. I did a lot of reading on this site and I am glad this site exists. I went to a few more doctors and I ended up going with Dr. Alexander in Phoenix,AZ.

I had my surgery on 11-19-12 and I am extremely happy with my decision to go with Dr. Alexander. Here our some pics of me post op and 1 week later.

Will post more in depth about my experience and pics later.

Hi slimjim,

Congrats on your recent procedure with Dr. Alexander. Didn't notice in your post if you had strip or FUE done? I would normally assume with 2900 grafts that you had a strip procedure, however it seems FUE is seeing larger and larger sessions every day....so was very curious which route you went! Wishing you the very best on new growth to come soon!!

Cheers Buddy!!!

slimjim,

Congratulations! As a fellow Dr. Alexander patient, I can say from experience that his work is tops. Your post-op pics look very clean and refined and you should be in for a very pleasing result.

Keep us posted on your progress.

Good luck with growth! Looks like you had some quality work done. How many grafts did it take to get that much coverage?

Nevermind, just saw the subject line. Duh... You must have been in the chair for a full day! I also started with a Bosley consultation and am so thankful that I found this site before doing something stupid.
