My brother had a hair transplant with you last summer and I’m seriously considering it myself. I’m still on the fence, but I know that my hair isn’t just going to magically regrow in the front and my brother’s hair is coming in quite nicely. That’s a very positive thing. Anyways I’ve been reading a TON of stuff online (thank you so much for this blog) but I have not read anything about how you cut the hairs out of the donor strip. So I’m just curious to know what is involved with removing the hairs from the strip once the strip is cut from the donor area? Thanks
It is natural to be curious and even nervous if you are considering a hair transplant procedure. The best thing is to come to one of our monthly Open House events to see a live surgery take place (on closed circuit TV with the patient’s blessing) and meet NHI patients in person to see the quality of our work.
If the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words”, then I wonder what a video is worth?
Another great option is to watch this quick, informal video filmed during a hair transplant procedure, shot earlier this week at the New Hair Institute’s Los Angeles office. The video, found below, shows a quick scan of the surgical room, followed by a technician dissecting the grafts from the strip under a microscope. The video is narrated by Dr. Rassman — you can try to count the words, but hopefully, this video speaks more than just a “thousand words”.
Note: This video is of surgical nature and may be too graphic for some viewers.
There’s also more videos available on the NHI Videos page.
