Using stereoscopic microscopes is a very sophisticated surgical technique that improves naturalness of your new hairline.

Stereoscopic dissecting is the method we use at Beverly Hills Hair Restoration to dissect the follicle units. It is the most refined and ultimate form of hair transplantation. What the process involves is taking hair roots from the donor area in the back of the scalp, where the hair generally continues to grow throughout a lifetime. After that process is over, with the aid of stereoscopic dissecting microscopes, the strip is then divided into the individual follicular unit grafts each measuring approx 1mm in width. By using microscopes about 30% more hair is visualized and can be harvested than with the older techniques. A part of the process is to trim away the excess fatty tissue surrounding each follicle. This is a critical surgical step for two reasons. One, each follicular unit must fit into the very small incision that forms the foundation of the new hairline. Two, trimming this tissue eliminates the occurrence of the unnatural gaps between each grouping of transplanted hair. Using this technique contributes to the reason why our patients results appear so natural.
