  1. Thanks @JohnAC71 for the response. Its good to hear the scar is looking great. What do you think about the recepient area? How do the scabs look? Should I be more persuasive?
  2. UPDATE - Post Op Day 8 Got my sutures removed yesterday. I couldn't go back to Dr. Alexander since I am not in Phoenix. So I went to a local clinic and got it removed. The Dr. that removed it said the stitches were very well done. That made me feel great! It feels so good to have the sutures removed. I am still sleeping on a recliner. Just trying to take care of the recipient area. Here are some photos of the donor area. I trimmed my hair around the donor to around a 2.5 guard, so that I can clean it well. There was some dried up blood, so I wanted to remove it. How do you think
  3. Thanks @OliverAtom, I chose FUT because Im a Norwood 5A. In order to maximise my donor, I thought it will be wise to do an FUT for my first procedure. I also usually never have my hair really short, so the scar should not be a big deal.
  4. Looking good! WIll be following. I myself had my first HT last week, and we are similar in number of grafts and balding pattern. Looking forward to your result.
  5. Just an update on the breakdown of grafts: Singles - 627 Doubles - 1812 Triples + - 462
  6. Thanks @JohnAC71 - Im glad you found the work refined. Looking forward to the long journey ahead.
  7. @yesplease - I just did the initial consult where I sent him some photos. He only spoke about FUE in his response. Maybe if I spoke to him after that he may have recommended FUT as well. Since Canada was not an option for me right now, I didn't consider H&W.
  8. Hello there folks - long time lurker in this forum. I finally decided to go in for my procedure this week. I chose Dr. Scott Alexander in Phoneix for my procedure. I had consulted with a few other doctors as well, and all of them gave me pretty much the same recommendations (except one): 1. Dr. Blake Bloxham - 2500 - 3000 FUT 2. Dr. Jae Pak - 2000 - 2500 FUT 3. Dr. Sahar Nadimi(Konior) - 2500 - 3000 FUT 4. Dr. Shaver (Bernstein) - 2500 FUT 5. Dr. Hasson - 5000 FUE 6. Dr. Alexaner 3000+FUT I also tried contacting Dr. Gabel a couple of times, but didn't get a response. I
  9. Thanks guys for the response. I guess its just my last minute nerves.
  10. Hey there folks. I just confirmed a procedure date with Dr. Scott Alexander in Phoenix for next month. I'm going to be doing an FUT for about 3000 grafts. Just wanted to reach out to see if anyone has any recent experiences with him. I reached out to a couple of members already and they were extremely helpful. Any last minute concerns/thoughts/advice for me? Thanks in advance.
