FUE over-harvested with scars and depleted donor area (photos)

More and more patients are experiencing over zealous surgeons who take out too many grafts from their donor area in doing FUE. I know that many patients want a lot a grafts so that they can get their hair back as quickly as possible, but pushing the envelope is a real problem as many men, who have donor densities that are not high, get this type of result and eventually may become bald in the back of their heads.  If some of the hair does not recover (some of what we see is the result of shock loss), then the only option to treat this is scalp micropigmentation (https://scalpmicropigmentation.com/scar-covering/).  I have discussed the limitations of FUE in previous posts here: https://baldingblog.com/2017/07/21/many-fue-grafts-many-fues-grafts-one-know-safe-limits/
