Hair transplantation is widely recognized as the most effective current treatment for male pattern baldness. Until now, however, it has not received comprehensive treatment in a single book.

This new work, the first devoted exclusively to hair transplant surgery, provides information on patient evaluation, operative planning, and the step-by-step details of surgical technique. Written by a team of leading experts, the book focuses throughout on procedures that have proven successful in the authors' own clinical experience, including:

  • Help in planning the right operation for all types of
    pattern baldness

  • Pointers on combining standard grafts, minigrafts,
    and micrografts to achieve a natural appearance

  • Advice on treating younger, rapidly balding patients

  • Information on designing surgery that ages with the patient and produces permanent, high-quality results
