    This document is a review of medical and surgical treatment options for androgenetic alopecia (AGA). The authors recommend the use of both finasteride and minoxidil for medical treatment, and follicular unit transplantation (FUT) as the gold standard for surgical management. The document emphasizes the importance of careful planning and execution of the anterior hairline to achieve a natural appearance following hair restoration surgery. Overall, FUT has become the gold standard for surgical management of AGA, and medical treatment can be used in conjunction with surgery to achieve a synergistic effect.
