Hair reconstruction

It is absolutely possible to remove those grafts.  Sometimes, doing it surgically and recycling the grafts is the optimal approach, particularly when donor hair is in limited supply, or old techniques like plugs are used.  For hairlines that are simply too low (but individual follicualr units are present), laser hair removal is the best option.  Pick a hair surgeon to do this for you, since your average hair removal practitioner will remove the hair in an unnatural pattern (i.e. too low, too high, or in a straight line!) and may not even be a doctor.
Good luck!

Reports poor results from frontal hairline transplants

I have been fixing hairlines for 25 years and have about as much experience as any doctor in the world doing this. You can not remove these grafts but you can reasonably camouflage them so that your hair line will meet your expectations.

Repair of two prior awful TPs

halt1,Thanks for your question. Yes it is possible, unfortunately repairs are common place. Most unsuspecting patients, can fall into the hands of inexperienced or sub-optimal providers if they are not careful or thorough in their research. I know how difficult it can be, because even physicians are getting fooled. Remember that talk is cheap, unethical providers can purchase ads in vanity magazines featuring the best of whatever city, in reality all that may be require is that the ad be bought. The bottom line is that true experts have done a lot of surgeries  and have a ton of data including photos and videos to show their results. Be sure that the results are visible on line on their web sites, or public forums. Sincerely,
