After an unsuccessful graft removal by an electrologist, we excised Patient LKE’s grafts, divided them into individual follicular units using the dissecting stereo-microscope, and re-implanted the hair just behind the frontal hairline. The repair was followed by three small sessions of follicular unit hair transplants using hair taken from the permanent zone in the back and sides of his scalp.
