Ethical Issues in FUE Hair Transplant
My extractions were done by a sub contracted medical student
You should better to go a full time hair restoration surgeon for getting true answer about number of grafts and for possible revision . Because I think preoperative planning and implantation may also be poor.. I recommend you to find out a surgeon who is a member of ISHRS and dedicated to hair transplant .

Surgeons Role in FUE
Surgery should only be performed by surgeons. What your doctor did is considered to be illegal in most states. Contacting your state medical board and notifying them of your situation could help prevent further abuse.
You may want to look in to the legal laws of your country. Medical students should not be doing your surgery.
Ethical Hair Transplant
Unfortunately, with the advent of FUE devices and physicians with little or no knowledge of hair transplant surgery are entering the field. Great hair transplant results are not an accident. Do your research carefully and find a full time hair transplant surgeon. There are less than 100 in USA.
