The patient is a 52 year old man who had a number of hair transplant procedures in the past, some of which were ill-advised and overly aggressive when he was younger. He came to see Dr. Boden for corrective work to extract multiple old plugs and to soften the hairline and fill in the middle and crown. His donor area was fairly depleted from previous hair surgeries.

The cosmetic goal was to soften the pluggy appearance of his hairline and to add volume to the "channels" deep in the temporal recesses. (the photos of the right hairline show this well.)

Body hair and beard hair extraction is an option for those patients with adequate body hair and limited hair remaining in the typical donor area of the scalp.

Below is a picture of Dr. Boden extracting the hair follicles.
