Several options: Medical treatment is available from your physician. It's pricey but somewhat effective. Surgery requires a specialist. Or you can embrace your genetics and masculinity and decide you like it. 95% of good looks for a man is physical fitness. This is totally under your control, no matter where you do and don't have hair.

Depends: Causes include, but not limited to : vitamin deficiencies, poor diet, thyroid issues, anemia, hormonal imbalances/changes, medications, genetics, tension of hair (pulling back), damage from chemical treatments/dyes, obsessive pulling (trichotillomania) - the solution is find the cause, as each cuase has different treatment. Would talk to your physician and consider labwork.

Ask a primary doctor: A person having hair loss can ask his primary care doctor about it, because sometimes there is a medical disorder causing hair loss (although many times it's just male-pattern baldness). The doctor may have other patients who have had good results with local dermatologists, plastic surgeons, hair restoration doctors, etc... A search of healthtap did not turn up any oakland dermatologists so far.
