FUE is a method
You need to have an examination before considering treatment options.
If you are a candidate for surgery, your focus should be on Results (not methods)
A bad hair transplant result from FUE or Strip is like Herpes. You'll carry it with you for life.
I want an FUE surgery
By balding in the back of your head, I am assuming that you mean the crown. IF that is the case, then FUE will NOT prevent it and if you are referring to the donor area, then FUE will make the hair less dense.

FUE maybe the best answer
Progressive hair loss.
Do not begin with surgery until u know u will have enough hair to finish with a good result. This is the same whether u have transplants or the Fleming-Mayer Flap.
Crown hair loss
At your age with what you describe without photos, I would presume you will have ongoing hair loss. You could presume that you will be as bald as the baldest man in your family after age 50. Hair transplants by FUE or any other harvesting method will not stop continuing hair loss. Transplants harvested by FUE will avoid a linear scar in the fringe and might allow for a shorter hairstyle. It is important however that the skill of the doctor be such that the quality of the grafts be equal to those that are harvested by the strip method and dissected by experienced technicians. Also be wary about transplanting the crown before transplanting the frontal hairline at your age. You may use up the majority of your good donor hair and not have much to use later when you need it in the front.
FUE or any hair transplant does not prevent hair loss, it just covers it up with a permanent natural solution using your own real hairs. You get no line scar with FUE. FUE is a harvesting method. The FUE harvesting method does not involve any scalpel or stitches.
