In this method, the surgeon first removes large grafts or plugs, dissects them and then plants them in the recipient area again. Then, they use additional camouflage procedures using the hair from the donor area.
In this method, the surgeon uses lasers to target and destroy the plugged grafts, visible hair plugs and low, unnatural hairlines.
This method is used to cover the scars of a hair transplant.
