Published on July 2, 2012 by

In an ideal world, even the baldest man could have a fulfilling hair transplant and have his entire head covered with hair again. Obviously, this is realistically not always the case.

Thinking of Visual Walls When Building Up the Frontal Region of the Scalp

Published on May 5, 2012 by
