I recently opted to work with Dr. Anderson and his team to address progressive thinning of my hair in the front and top of my head. This pattern of female hair loss runs in my family, and I have tried every method imaginable to address the issue with little or no results.
I had actually considered transplant procedures a number of times over the years, but I had always talked myself out of it, thinking that the pain, risks, downtime from work, etc. would be difficult to justify. I could not have been more wrong! The procedure itself was actually pretty straightforward. And aside from taking one sedative the day of the procedure, I’ve had to take no pain medications at all other than Aleve. I’m now on day 7 post surgery, and I have very few residual signs of the procedure at this point. I couldn’t be more pleased.
I considered a number of doctors for the procedure and opted to go with Dr. Anderson for the following reasons:
(1) Low Pressure Approach: Dr. Anderson and Sara (Patient Care Manager) took a lot of time to explain all options for my hair loss (both surgical and non-surgical) and the considerations from a cost, time and complexity standpoint. I never felt like I was getting a “sales pitch” or pressured, and they were extremely professional in all of their follow up to the consultation.
(2) Small Practice: Dr. Anderson does one surgery per day, so I knew that I would be getting his undivided attention as compared to some of the larger practices that feel like factories with assembly lines.
(3) He’s a Plastic Surgeon: This was incredibly important to me in my evaluation of doctors. None of the other doctors that I considered were board certified plastic surgeons, and when you are having surgery that impacts your appearance, working with a doctor who specializes in aesthetic and cosmetic procedures (in my opinion) is a must.
I can’t say enough nice things about my experience with Dr. Anderson and his team, and I highly, highly recommend their practice.
