Caption: Hair transplant surgery. Hair plug for use in a hair transplant operation. This cosmetic surgery procedure, known as punch grafting, is performed to treat male pattern baldness (alopecia). Hairy scalp is harvested from the back of the head, and divided into plugs. Each plug contains at least one hair follicle. The plugs are implanted in holes in the bald region of the scalp, where the hairs will take root to replace hair lost through baldness. Punch grafting is the most common form of hair transplant.
