How do I get rid of a bald spot?

I was born with a bald spot on the back of my head. It is about an inch in diameter. I heard about hair transplants but can you only get that procedure if the bald spot was once able to grow hair? Is there any way I can get hair in my bald spot?

You need an examination for a better understanding of why you have a bald spot before considering treatment options.

These types of bald spots will usually support hair from a hair transplant. See a doctor who specializes in this area and ask about it
