The Ludwig scale describes different types of genetic hair loss for women. All types described are characterized by hair loss on the forehead, the crown and the parting, while the frontal hairline remains relatively unchanged. The hair at the back of the head and sides may be affected or not. Regardless of the extent of hair loss, transplantation can only be carried out on women with healthy growth of hair on the sides and back of the head.

Type I

Hair loss can easily be hidden by cleverly placing the hair. Patients of type I have too little hair loss for a surgical hair restoration to make sense.

Type II

Significant hair loss and decreased hair density can be seen along the parting. Natural hair transplantation is recommended if the donor area has enough hair and it is stable.

Type III

Translucent scalp or bald spots on the head often associated with hair loss on the whole head.

The only life-long-lasting method for hair image is the Moser-method based hair transplantation. Our method is demonstrated in the international medical scientific standard work of hair surgery Hair transplantation as the most “state-of-the-art”. It is an essential basic textbook in the study of hair transplantation surgery. In the upcoming fifth Edition research results of Moser Medical will again be demonstrated.

For women who plan surgical hair transplantation, a thorough medical investigation is extremely important to ensure that the diagnosis of the cause is correct and to make sure that enough donor hair is available. To achieve optimum results, extensive surgical skills are required especially for women suitable for surgical hair transplantation.
