Male Hair Loss Stages

Male pattern baldness is mainly caused due to the male hormone DHT (DiHydroTestosterone) and it can strike in as early as teens or twenties. The hairline starts to recede gradually in a pattern – starting with the crown.

Here are the symptoms of hair loss in men:

  • Excessive hair loss
  • Scaly scalp
  • Receding hairline in front, temples
  • Thinning of hair on the crown
  • Bald patch on scalp top
  • Partial and complete baldness gradually

Male pattern baldness majorly occurs due to genetic disorders and almost 80% of balding men have a history of baldness in their ancestors.

There are stages of male pattern baldness according to the Norwood-Hamilton Scale – a scale for determining hair count/volume. The stage determines the number of grafts that are required in the hair transplant. Dr. Kalia’s extensive proficiency about hair loss and hair transplant enables him to identify the hair loss stage at a glance, helping him provide the best and fruitful treatment.
