Hair transplant surgery. Image 5 of 9. Surgeon using a punching tool to make holes in the crown of a man's head during a hair transplant operation. The patient has male pattern baldness (alopecia), which is being treated by a cosmetic surgery procedure known as punch grafting, the most common method of hair transplant. Plugs of skin containing hair follicles will be inserted into these holes to replace hair lost through baldness. For a sequence of images of punch grafting, see M590/210 to M590/218.
