The male hair loss is defined by the Hamilton Norwwod scale:
The Hamilton-Norwood scale describes seven types of genetic hair loss at men. It was developed in 1951 by Hamilton and 1975 modified by Norwood.
- Type I: No, or not yet visible hair loss.
- Type II: Hair loss runs from the front in the direction to the back of the head and forms a slightly receding hairline.
- Type III: The receding hairline now runs more and more towards the back of the head and is clearly visible. In addition, a tonsured form (a circle) on the back of the head can appear.
- Type IV: The frontal region becomes more bald and the tonsure bigger. The two affected regions grow slowly together.
- Type V: The zones of severe hair loss are only separated by a narrow border.
- Type VI: The hair loss is passed into each other.
- Type VII: From the original hair image is only a fringe of hair (donor area) left and a full bald can be seen.
The only life-long-lasting method for aesthetic hair image reconstruction is own hair transplantation according to the Moser method. Our method is described in the international medical scientific standard textbook of hair surgery "Hair Transplantation" as the most state-oft-the-art solution. The book is an essential basic literature in the study of hair transplantation surgery. In the upcoming fifth edition Moser Medical will again present its research results.
