The subject of this book is the surgical treatment of male baldness.

The first part is devoted to the anatomy, seen from the viewpoint of surgical management.

A new classification is furnished by the authors, which conduces to an immediate therapeutic approach and shows the deficiencies of previous classifications.

Over half the work is devoted to surgical techniques as such and their indications.

The originality of this text consists of new surgical techniques, and especially flap surgery, which are described in detail, and some of which have not previously been published. In the light of these techniques, the indications have been completely transformed, converting the surgery of baldness from the status of a single technique (that of implants) to that of a technology.
