Just had an FUT HT on 7/26/19 with Dr Scott Alexander in Phoenix, AZ. I'm 46 years old and after MUCH research, almost 2 years worth, I decided Dr Alexander would be the perfect doctor to perform my HT. From the very first consultation with Dr A I felt very comfortable and NEVER pressured. His staff from day one were always very warm and made me feel at ease. They let me take this at my own pace and were always very open and willing to answer my questions along the way. I had my wife along in the 2nd consultation, almost a year later, she also felt extremely comfortable with Dr Alexander and his staff, so I decided the time was right to move forward. Their front office is warm yet private and the surgical area is what you would expect it to be, very clean, organized and sterile. The surgery itself went down like clockwork. From all of my research it was everything I expected almost to the letter with no surprises. I'd have to say that from process, comfort level, professionalism, and expertise of Dr Alexander and his team I'd give them an A+. Now results...Only time will tell but I feel great about the surgery and will be posting photos and updates as things progress.... One other mention of credit needs to be given. I have to thank Spex for helping me through this entire process up to the surgery and now beyond. He has answered all my questions (hundreds) and has been nothing short of a freaking hero to all the ppl, including me, that are flipping out about losing their hair and not knowing what to do. Thanks, Spex Pics coming soon...
Hi guys Well, when I was about 18 people would joke, like 'You're going bald', and other ill-judged remarks. You see, when I was still 18, I had wild hair, and it was my pride. I had no reason to believe I would ever lose my hair, there is no history of hair loss in my family. Alas, it's happening. Now 21, my hairline has made the dreaded 'M', and the crown is balding. I have reached the point at which I am no longer willing to sacrifice my life, so of course, I am looking for the right surgeon, the right technique, and what my expectations should be. 3 years, and my self-esteem is destroyed. I can only look in the mirror in darkened rooms, so I can delude myself into thinking I still have a full head of hair, and it is unthinkable I'll allow a picture of myself to be taken. My life really is devastated. I was brimming with confidence, perhaps even arrogant, and now I am so insecure that should someone even mention my hair, whatever comment they made will reverberate in my mind for the full day. I understand that many feel people my age shouldn't even be considering a hair transplant, that they should wait until they are older and their condition has progressed into a more predictable paradigm, and so is thus more manageable for the surgeon, but I've lost three years of my life, and I refuse to live in incubation until my youth is gone. It's not that I want to make the choice to have a procedure which could very well fail, and require me in ten years to spend yet another ?5-6000 I don't have repeating the procedure- it's that I have no choice. It's that the choice is between a life of constant misery, unable to interact socially with anyone because I'm crippled by paralysing self-consciousness or a procedure that might just give me my youth back. I'm a law student, and I can't afford to doubt myself. I need to be confident in my appearance and my ability to project an image I want to. I don't want to be the guy that always says 'You know, I really can't go out this weekend, guys, sorry, it's just, uh, I have work I need to do', I need this procedure, and it's a crying shame that it isn't available on the NHS. An instant cure for my depression. That's just a little background I feel I should provide before posing my questions. I feel it's important one understands quite how disaffected I've become as a result of this condition, although I doubt very little that this is at all different to how many of you, too, feel. 1) I'd like to ask, with consideration to how life-chaning this has been for me, whether you believe it is wise, or advisable, to pursue an operation at this point? 2) Due to financial constraints, being a student, it'll be a long time before I have enough money to pay for the procedure, so I ask, do you believe the strip method (as it is the cheaper option) is good enough? 3) Can I expect, if I press the surgeon in this direction, for him to restore my hairline into a low position? I ask this because I know it is generally advised that the hairline be maintained higher, in case of future hair loss. But as I'm sure you all know, the younger the patient, the more demanding they tend to be, as their teen hair is very fresh in their mind. I am no exception to this rule. 4) Do you recommend any surgeon or clinic for which I should be saving? 5) Finally, with such varying before and after pictures, can you all give me an idea of what to expect? Should I expect to have a near fully-restored head of hair, near that of someone my age without this condition, or will I always be noticeably thin on top? Thanks guys, in advance.
