• I report a two-year experience using Juri procedure of transferring twice-delayed parietal-occipital flaps to balding areas of the scalp. These operations allow massive transfer of genetically determined permanent hair to the cosmetically deficient areas of the scalp, whether the condition of baldness is the result of injury or hereditary factors. These procedures require careful thought in planning the hairline and necessitate minor secondary procedures to achieve the most satisfactory results. I discuss concepts for the design of the flap, and describe modifications in the surgical techniques as compared with a previous report. The Juri operation, although extensive, gives the greatest amount of hair transfer in the shortest period of time and has resulted in satisfactory cosmetic results in all patients operated on.
