Dear forum members, As many of you know, we gather as much information as possible about a physician, their staff, technique and track record before they are even considered for recommendation on the Hair Transplant Network. Part of our review process involves getting input from patients and the members of this forum community. To learn more about this review process, click here. Thus, we'd like your input on the potential recommendation of Dr. Antonio Alcaide of Malaga, Spain. At this time, Dr. Alcaide is being considered for recommendation only, not the Coalition. To see our demanding standards for recommendation, click here. Dr. Antonio Alcaide has been trained by Coalition member Dr. Christian Bisanga and performs FUE (follicular unit extraction) and some FUSS (strip surgery) when appropriate as the primary part of his practice at BHR Clinic in Spain. Dr. Alcaide has over 5 years of experience and operates on only 1 patient per day. He uses all of the latest tools and techniques including microscopic dissection, the trichophytic closure, minimally invasive blades, needles as small as .8mm, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and dense packing when appropriate for the patient. He specializes in FUSS, FUE, hair transplant repair, SMP (Scalp Micropigmentation), hair replacement (hair systems) and Mesotherapy. Dr. Alcaide also offers prescriptions for Propecia and free consultations for hair transplant surgery. Dr. Antonio Alcaide has the staff and experience to perform large, densely packed sessions of ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantation exceeding 3500 grafts when appropriate for the patient. Dr. Alcaide uses both a manual and motorized extraction device (depending on the patient) with punch sizes ranging from .8mm to .9mm depending on the patient and the size of the graft. He uses single haired grafts for the crucial hairline areas to mimic nature and densely packs up to 50 FU/cm2 when appropriate. Dr. Antonio Alcaide prefers manual FUE extraction because he feels it's more delicate, gentle and less traumatic for the grafts than the NeoGraft and the SAFE Scribe. Follicular unit grafts are stored in a PRP / Saline holding solution after extraction for a maximum of 2 to 3 hours to minimize dehydration while waiting to be implanted into tiny recipient incisions made by the surgeon prior to implantation. Grafts are then inserted carefully using Ellis forceps by experienced technicians. Dr. Alcaide has a background in dermatology and trichology and is a member of the ISHRS, FUE Europe, the Spanish Academic of Dermatology (AEDV) and the Spanish Society of Trichology. Given Dr. Alcaide's training and experience in performing both state of the art FUT and FUE and providing only the best results, in my opinion, he should be considered for recommendation. In recent weeks, Dr. Alcaide has presented several examples of his procedure and recent results on this forum.
