Thanks for posting your query.

If the hair is lost we call it alopecia.

Alopecia is of many types. The most common alopecia in middle aged males us male pattern baldness.

This is more of genetic origin.

The treatment for it is difficult and has to be continued life long.

There are different treatment options like minoxidil lotion, oral finasteride, mesotherapy etc.

Hair transplant is used as last resort when all other treatments fail and when the hair loss is extensive.

Hair transplant is not very effective in all cases. Its expensive too. The hair follicle from the back of the head is transplanted on the bald area because male pattern baldness doesn't affect the hair on the back of the head.

You will need to visit a hair transplant expert for the same.

Please let me know if I can address any other queries that you may have.
