    Default Permanent SMP, viable?

    While I'm still undecided about SMP, I read Joe Tillman's experiences with SMP patients. That raised many problems with having permanent SMP. One of the problems has to do with removal, ie.;

    Suppose a patient who has had FUE later gets SMP. Illustration:

    Those white dots are not a "hair bearing regions" of the scalp. Permanent SMP (assuming it truly is permanent) is laser-removable if you are unhappy with it. Temporary SMP, on the other hand, is costly, and time-consuming since it has to be done many times. (possibly up to 6 times per session?)
