It is not usually believable that hair loss can be so disturbing for a hair loss patient but it is utterly true.

Hair loss is extremely worrisome and problematic when the nature of this disease is genetic.

However, hair loss takes place due to several reasons like improper diet, chronic disease, hair products, stress, seasonal changes, and hormonal changes but genes are primarily responsible for genetic baldness.

For the treatment of male pattern baldness you need the Best Hair transplant doctor in India because there are several fake clinics active in the field of hair restoration.

Usually, the surgeon checks your hair and scalp before the treatment for a correct and error-free diagnosis.

Experts generally, measure the severity of baldness with the help of the Norwood scale.

This scale has seven following phases to measure the severity of male pattern baldness.

Phase 1:

This stage shows no hair loss. It means you will observe a totally natural hairline on the forehead.

Phase 2:

This phase is the start of the hairline recession. Crown area, at this time, seems quite normal.

Phase 3:

You may observe clean signs of hair loss at his phase. Hair loss is significant in both temple areas.

Phase 4:

This stage is enough to prove that you are facing male pattern baldness. at this phase, the crown also begins to lose hair.

Phase 5:

This phase is the start of a difficult time for the patients. Hair loss on the temple area and the crown area is more significant and it is about to merge with each other. Only a thin layer of hair separates these two hair loss areas.

Phase 6:

At this stage, hair loss at the crown area and hair loss at the temple are merges with each other to make a large bald area on the scalp.

Phase 7:

A spars layer of hair remains in the back and sides of the head at this phase of male pattern baldness.

Hair loss treatment

After checking the condition of scalp and hair thoroughly, experts use three main approaches called medication, non-surgical treatments, and surgical treatment.


Hair loss medications are available for preventing hair loss but their effects are limited. Moreover, the patients have to use these medications on the regular basis to have sustained results.

Non-surgical treatments:

At the initial stages of hair loss, doctors may use non-surgical approaches like PRP hair loss treatments and low light laser therapy.

These treatments are effective to prevent hair loss and promote hair re-growth.

However, these treatments are not suggested for a completely bald scalp.

Surgical treatments:

Hair transplant is the most reliable surgical treatment for genetic baldness.

In this approach, healthy and baldness-resistant hairs are pulled out from the back and sides and transplanted to the bald area.
