Thanks for the query.

Most suitable Hair transplant is the Follicular Unit Extraction which involves putting individual hair follicles into the scalp .
You will need to continue use of Minoxidil and finasteride tablets prescribed from your Dermatologist to prevent further progression of the condition .
Costs vary from Institute to Doctor : from 0000 to 2.5 lakh rupees.

take care
