This is my second procedure with Dr. Anderson.
The 1st was in 2006, and that was more of a preventive procedure. At the time of the 1st procedure Dr. Anderson indicated that I would need approximately 1200-1500 grafts. During the procedure, he noted that hair loss was not as severe as he initially thought and he chose to implant 700-900. Imagine my surprise when the following week I received a call by Dr Anderson to tell me he would refund a portion of the $7,000 that I spent to engage him for the procedure. A week later I received a check for around $3,000. Trust factor established.
The procedure itself was not painful and closely monitored by multiple medical professionals (i.e nurses, etc..) Over the next 12 months I was very happy to note that the areas which were transplanted came in just as expected. Then over the next 8 years I basically did nothing. I suspect I could have prevented some hair loss, but I got lazy. This time we went with 2500 grafts and the procedure was just as smooth. Its been 2 weeks since the procedure and I can already tell that the transplant areas are much more dense. It should also be noted that the scarring was minimal the 1st time and I have no reason to think this time will be any different. I suspect the Doctors training as an actual plastic surgeon was helpful. As I understand it there are very few hair transplant doctors in the Atlanta area that are actually plastic surgeons. I was surprised to learn this. I would emphasize that my experience was honestly… very, very good. Do your homework, but make sure you throw Doc Anderson in the mix. Hes a good one.
