The use of hair-pieces is a non-surgical procedure which supplies the patient with additional hair. To this extent, a hair-piece often constitutes an alternative to the various surgical solutions. In fact, we believe that it should be used more often as a method to complement the surgical repertoire, a mixed programme combining a hair-piece with surgery, giving excellent results in the treatment of major baldness. Enormous progress has been made in recent years in the field of hair-pieces as regards both their composition and their conception. Very many hair-pieces are currently commercially available. Their main differences relate to:
— Type of hair used
— Base on which the hair is implanted
— Mode of fixation of the hair-piece
