That's absolutely horrendous to watch. Looks too fast, imprecise and messy to me.

@DrTBarghouthi, what's your expert assessment of this video clip? Would be interesting to hear your professional opinion.

Wow! So many concerning things here:

1. Speed in itself is not the main concern as you would get occasional cases where extraction might be easier and fast in general. However, I note that they never do any testing of random grafts to see that they’re in the right angle with no transections. It is good practice in my opinion to check every certain number or if in doubt about angle, direction or depth. 
2. Too messy. The gauze is just too bloody and the surgical field is not kept clean.

3. Too densely extracted. I can literally see no hair follicles left in some of the areas if not most. 
4. I also am not a fan of using one forceps to extract the grafts. I prefer having two as this reduces the pulling and shearing effect on the grafts.

Yes disturbing overall I agree.

Speed doesn’t equal better. Poor donor area.
