Hello Tanveer!

It's good to know that you realise the nature of your problem and are willing to learn about it's solutions.

The treatment for androgenetic alopecia is two fold. First line of defense is medical treatment which slows down the rate of hair loss and improves the thickness of existing hair. Second line of defense is to reclaim lost territory by hair transplant.

Hair transplant gives you new hair in the areas which are totally bald while medical treatment preserves and improves your existing hair. Hair transplants are a permanent solution while medical therapy gives temporary relief. Best results are obtained by a combination of two.

Feel free to ask if you have more queries.
Best regards,
