For people who are losing their hair, hair replacement surgery is an option.

This procedure involves removing small pieces of scalp from a donor site and putting it in the area that’s balding, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

According to the ASPS, this procedure has been done for about 30 years.

The ASPS adds that hair loss is mainly caused by aging, family history of baldness and a change in hormones.
