Approx. 1,010 grafts were utilized to repair frontal framework from scars created from removal of artificial hair. Artificial hair is no longer allowed in the U.S. because of a 50% infection rate. This patient had multiple procedures, work done elsewhere, which included 3 scalp reductions and 3 plug procedures. Due to the limited donor hair and laxity only 1,010 grafts were harvested. The patient's overall appearance was greatly improved. Photos shown were taken pre-op and 14 months post-op.
