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.
