If the woman actually doing the FUE in this video is not a DOCTOR, then the surgeon and his organization has broken the law in all States in the US and in most European and South American countries. I am not saying that this is the case here, but I am surprised to see the plastic surgeon who is discussing the surgery, was not the person performing the FUE (time 2:54-4:00 minutes). Sometimes doctors who don’t know how to do modern hair transplant surgery bring in teams of technicians to do the actual surgery for them (the FUE part of the surgery and even creating the recipient sites where the grafts are placed). This would not be proper, safe or legal.
As a side issue, I noted that the doctor is not using a mask yet talking to the audience directly over the patient. When a person speaks, they OFTEN (almost always) propel saliva. In this case, the ‘plastic surgeon’ had to be propelling his saliva on the patient exposing the patient to potential infections (he should have warn a surgical mask and known better).
If you suspect that the surgery you are having done is not being performed by the doctor who you believed was supposed to be doing the surgery, then it might be appropriate to ask the State Board of Medical Examiners in your state of country to check the situation out. In the surgery in this video, I would expect that the women who performed the FUE to be a licensed MD possibly working with the doctor. If that was NOT the case then she would be practicing surgery without a license, see the statement from the State of California in this issue here: https://baldingblog.com/decision-from-the-california-medical-board-only-doctors-can-perform-a-hair-transplant/ ).
I would suggest that you watch this very informative very short video on this subject here: https://baldingblog.com/warning-watch-his-very-short-video-if-you-are-thinking-about-getting-a-hair-transplant/ The warning is simple: Make sure that you have a real, licensed doctor trained in the field of hair transplantation PERFORMING your surgery. Many doctors do this just for the money and leave the operating room once the patient is sedated. The patient’s welfare is then in the hands of a team of technicians overseeing the surgery who are not trained for emergencies or for things that go wrong. I have reported one death in California from a hair transplant ( https://baldingblog.com/hair-transplants-by-john-lord/) which is a warning that without a competent doctor in the operating room you are risking your life if anything goes wrong. The man who died (that I referred to) was young with 2 small children.
