Hair transplant-– In a hair transplant, grafts are removed from the back of the head and placed in areas where there is no hair or thinning is noticed.
Scalp reduction— In scalp reduction surgery, the bald patches are cut off, and the rest of the scalp is sewed back together. This makes one’s head look full of hair once again, but it can leave a scar running down the middle of your head and also the skin stretches.
Rotational flap surgery— This is an old method of concealing hair loss. In rotational flap surgery, the tissues at the back of one’s head are rotated so that they come back to the front of the head which immediately gives an impression of a full head of hair.
Tissue expansion— In tissue expansion, tissue expanders put under the skin where hair growth is maximum. This area is then inflated with saline water for a few weeks which stretches this skin and increases the hair-bearing area. Here are some causes of male pattern baldness.
