Male Pattern Baldness, Male Hair Loss
The images below show the different categories of male pattern baldness or hair loss as well as the hair restoration and hair replacement options suitable for each category.
Class 1 Male Pattern Baldness
Men considered Class 1 hair loss have not lost any appreciable amount of hair, so neither surgical hair restoration nor artificial hairpieces are required.
Class 2 Male Pattern Baldness
Men with Class 2 hair loss are usually experiencing the beginnings of frontal temporal hair erosion that may become quite severe in 5-10 years. Hair Transplantation is usually a viable option. In consultation, Dr. Jones will determine whether or not you are a candidate for hairline Micrografts. They will take into account your age, family history, amount of hair loss, type and texture of hair, and amount and quality of donor hair available in developing their prognosis and treatment plan.
Class 3 Male Pattern Baldness
Men with Class 3 hair loss are experiencing accelerating hair loss that often becomes severe in 5-7 years. Hair Transplantation is usually an option. In consultation Dr. Jones will determine whether or not you are a candidate for hair restoration procedures.
Class 4 Male Pattern Baldness
Men with Class 4 hair loss are experiencing substantial frontal temporal recession and, often, an enlarging “bald spot” toward the back of the head. Some men choose natural, permanent Hair Transplantation. In consultation Dr Jones will determine whether or not you are a candidate for hair restoration procedures.
Class 5 Male Pattern Baldness
Men with Class 5 hair loss are experiencing very severe frontal temporal recession and, often, an enlarging “bald spot” toward the back of the head. Some men choose natural, permanent Hair Transplantation. In consultation Dr. Jones will determine whether or not you are a candidate for hair restoration procedures.
Class 6 Male Pattern Baldness
Men with Class 6 hair loss are experiencing very severe frontal temporal recession and an extremely large “bald spot” toward the back of the head. Some men choose natural, permanent Hair Transplantation. In consultation Dr. Jones will determine whether or not you are a candidate.
Class 7 Male Pattern Baldness
Men with Class 7 hair loss may be candidates for some transplantation procedures. With a limited donor site usually only the hairline can be recreated leaving the crown area bald.
Dr. Jones changed my brother’s life! He has confidence and a new sense of self. The quality of work is exemplary in that you would never know my brother had work done. Incredibly impressed.
