The principle of baldness reduction is to remove a part of the bald area by playing on the elasticity of the scalp. The result is immediate. Usually an area of 10 to 12 cm long and 3 to 4 cm wide can be removed. This technique is particularly useful in the region of the tonsure or top of the head for patients with a good elasticity of the scalp. It is not necessary to shave the hair for this plastic surgery procedure.

This baldness treatment is done on an outpatient basis with a return home the same day.

The baldness reduction can be repeated two or three times at a few months interval in order to treat a large area of hair loss. It is necessary to wait a few months between each procedure so that the scalp regains its suppleness and elasticity.
