Abstract

The surgical treatment of androgenetic alopecia may be conveniently subdivided into three broad areas: (a) punch hair transplantation, (b) alopecia reduction, and (c)flap hair transplantation procedures. This chapter provides a brief description of the major components of each of these and an overview of concepts for their utilization.
