Facial Hair Implants
Similar to a hair transplant, moustache and facial hair implants take hair from other parts of the body that have a lot of hair e.g. back, legs.

We all remember a time when everyone had a stretcher in their ear. Ear repair surgery is predominantly used to combat the effects of this body modification.
