Too many grafts in fine hair person

This is a depleted donor area in a person who has fine hair so the missing donor hair stands out very well. We call this over-harvesting even though he had less than 2400 grafts removed.  If you look below the area that was harvested, you can almost see through the normal untouched donor area.  This man should not have had as many grafts taken out as he now has a new balding problem or he should have been told ahead of time that this would be a problem.

Also, the harvesting extended beyond the permanent zone so if this man should develop a more advanced balding pattern, he will lose many of the grafts down the road.  SMP is a good treatment for both problems.
