Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Baldness consultation. Doctor examining a patient's balding head. The hairline has receded to a V-shape known as a widow's peak. This type of hair loss (alopecia) is hereditary and common among men. The normal scalp hairs fall out, and are replaced by finer, lighter hairs. The thinning starts at the temples, and progresses to the crown. The condition is not serious, and the only problem is cosmetic. There is no absolute cure, but creams and tonics are often used as well as the wearing of a wig or toupee. Surgery is also an option, where hair taken from the back of the head is transplanted to the balding patches, but there is no guarantee of success.
