Doctors use what's called micrograft technology to deposit hair bulbs into the skin. The most popular styles for pubic transplant, according to one Korean blog, are a shield and a fan.

The procedure doesn't come cheap — it costs around $2,000.

But that hasn't stifled interest. According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, demand for pubic implants grew by nearly 160% between 2010 and 2012.

So maybe the anti-pube, pro-Brazilian wax tide is turning?
