This image is part of the sequence Healthcare: Man undergoes scalp incision during baldness reduction cosmetic surgery


Caption: Baldness reduction surgery (Sixth of 9 images). Surgeon's gloved hand holds a staple gun to the incision in the scalp of a male patient during baldness reduction surgery. The incision is being sutured with staples. The patient has male pattern baldness (alopecia) affecting the crown of his head. This is being treated with cosmetic surgery known as baldness reduction, an alternative to hair transplant. The technique consists of cutting out an area of bald skin. Surrounding areas of hair-bearing scalp are then stretched to replace the bald area and sutured closed. The surgery is conducted under local anaesthetic. (See photo's M590/091 to M590/099 showing the surgery sequence).
