Thinning hair and balding are common occurrences for the majority of men. However hair loss does not happen the same way or at the same timescale for everyone. Recognising the type of hair loss you have is the first step to determining the right treatment plan — our hair consultants will be able to give you more advice and help you understand your particular type of hair loss. To allow you to initially determine what classification of hair loss you may have please take a look at the illustrations below.
All the classifications of hairloss shown below are able to be treated using a variety of our affordable hair regrowth, replacement and transplant procedures. Contact us today to arrange your free conultation.
- Class 1 represents a normal head of hair with no visible hair loss
- Class 2 is characterized by the beginning of a receding hairline and a “widow’s peak” on the forehead.
- Class 3 patients exhibit a more significant decline in hair above the temples as well as receding from the forehead. Hair loss is starting to become significant on the crown.
- Class 4 hair loss may become more noticeable on the crown or patients may have significant hair loss above the temples and/or front anterior areas.
- Class 5 hair loss approaches significant levels with most hair loss occurring on the top of the vertex and crown. Hair transplantation for this Class and higher Class levels may require more grafts to provide coverage and density.
- Class 6 patients show major hair loss, but still have areas with donor hair available. Transplanting this hair can still have excellent results.
- Class 7 patients show the most significant loss of hair. There may still be sufficient donor hair for transplantation; however, results may be limited.
