I cannot answer for any ohter doctors. I can tell you that I generally do the anesthesia in the frontal area while I observe one of the surgical assistants applying anesthesia in the donor area. I make all the recipient sites which does determine the angle and direction that the hair will grow. I do some of the graft placement, and check every single graft for proper placement using magnifying loops before the procedure is over. I personally review your post operative instructions with you before leaving the clinic, and call you that evening to make sure everything is ok. I prefer to only perform a single procedure each day. The only time we do more than one case is when the cases are very small or one of the cases is a eyebrow, scar revision, or a revision/ repair.
