Are there surgical procedures available?
The most commonly known surgical procedure is hair transplantation. This is when hair is removed from an area of the scalp that is determined to be less likely to be effected by genetic hair loss, the hair is then reintroduced to the scalp where the hair is needed (once the hair is removed from the donor area hair will not grow back in that area). Another procedure is scalp reduction, this is when a balding or thinning area of the scalp is excised (removed) this procedure strives to reduce the amount of balding or thinning area from the head completely. There is also the flap method. This is when a section of hair from the side of the head is moved to the front or top of the head.
