Scott Alexander, MD
Dr. Scott F. Alexander is the founder, and medical director of Biltmore Surgical Hair Restoration located in Phoenix, Arizona. He is dedicated exclusively to treating hair loss in both men and women. His techniques and equipment are the latest state of the art surgical options available in the world. Now men and women in the Arizona area can have these microsurgical highly advanced artistic hair restorations.
Dr. Alexander is a fourth generation Arizona native that grew up in Phoenix. He attended Brigham Young University where he received his Bachelor of Science degree. At this time he also minored in art and design. His residency training was in general surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
Dr. Alexander trained under Dr. Alan Feller where he learned the lateral-slit technique and FUE. Dr. Feller is one of the most respected surgeons performing hair restoration today and is a leader in the evolution of hair transplant technology. Dr. Alexander has also had extensive training in the lateral-slit technique with many other well-respected physicians in the industry.
Dr. Scott Alexander takes pride in offering the latest in hair restoration technology. His constant need for perfection is unparalleled, which is why he is one of few surgeons offering the lateral-slit technique.
Lateral Slit hair transplantation refers to the method at which the surgeon prepares the sites for the transplanted hair. A lateral slit is prepared by creating an incision in a lateral angle as opposed to a sagital angle.
One of the most significant benefits from the lateral slit method is that it allows the surgeon to mimic the natural direction and angle of each hair. Each site is created through analyzing the neighboring area of hair, which enables the surgeon to reproduce the patient’s natural hair growth pattern. As a result, each transplanted hair that emerges from the scalp will grow and lay in the same direction as its neighboring, non-transplanted hairs.
Dr. Alexander is now able to create a site that is .7 millimeters in length, which allows him to transplant up to 70 units per square centimeter. He is only one of a few doctors in the world that is able to achieve this high of density. Without the usage of custom-made blades this would not be achievable.
The lateral-slit method is also superior because it is less traumatic to the scalp, which decreases the chance of affecting vascular blood flow. Other, more invasive methods of surgery can inhibit blood flow, which can result in poor growth.
Hair restoration surgery is much more than just science; it also takes artistry and imagination for optimal results. Dr. Alexander has always taken the artistic approach to hairline design; this enables him to provide his patients with natural- superlative hairlines.
Each aspect of Dr. Alexander’s surgical process is precise and calculated, which is why he limits himself to just one procedure per day, as a result each patient can be confident that he or she has received the best treatment possible.
Dr. Alexander is one of less than fifty hair transplant surgeons in North America recommended by The American Hair Loss Association.
