Introduction: Temporal recession in male-pattern baldness is common. The method of marking of temporal point practiced worldwide, described by Walter P. Unger, does not help in marking temporal triangle border in Indian population. We have found aesthetically superior way of marking temporal point and easy method of construction of lower border of temporal triangle. Case Series: The new marking was applied over 126 young male patients from March 2014 to December 2017; they were regularly followed up and results were observed. Conclusion: With the new method of marking, we found that the lower border of temporal triangle can be easily constructed and temporal point can be more aesthetically placed in Indian population.
