Baldness Surgery

Springer-Verlag
Paris, 1994. 341 pages, 620 illustrations.

The purpose of this book is to take stock of the surgical treatments of male pattern baldness. The first part is devoted to anatomy, treated in the perspective of surgical treatment. A new classification, established by the authors, leads to an immediate therapeutic approach and shows the inadequacies of the previous classifications. Objective analytical methods have been used to monitor the efficacy of most of the proposed surgical procedures.

More than half of the book is devoted to the actual surgical techniques and the signs leading to that treatment. Its originality lies in the new techniques described in detail, some of which are still unpublished.

In light of these techniques, the signs and subsequent options have been completely transformed, moving baldness surgery from the stage of a technique (implants) to that of a technology, ie a set of complementary techniques.
