Hair transplant surgery. Image 3 of 9. Surgeon preparing plugs of hair from a strip of hairy scalp. The skin was harvested from the back of a man's head. The patient has male pattern baldness (alopecia) on the crown of his head. The plugs will be implanted on the crown by a cosmetic surgery procedure known as punch grafting. This is the most common form of hair transplant. For a sequence of images of punch grafting, see M590/210 to M590/218.
