Pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia initiates from either the frontal area or the temporal triangles which further progresses to co lease and form a larger broader bald area leaving only a band of hair at the back and sides of the head in the advanced grades of baldness. The baldness is defined in various stages and is represented using commonly the Norwood grades of baldness which is explained as follows:
Class I: Entire hairline lies high on the forehead and is not actually balding.
Class II: Triangular areas of recession in the sides of frontal area and minimal recession on mid frontal area.
Class III: Borderline case. Deepening of triangular recession or can include thinning of hair on the vertex.
Class IV: Further frontal hair loss and widening of hair loss from vertex but still a wide band of hair present separating frontal and vertex hair loss.
Class V: Widening of frontal and vertex hair loss and continual breaking of separation line of hairs between frontal and vertex baldness.

Importance of assessing the grade of baldness before hair transplant
Hair transplant is an elective procedure which is chosen by the patient but cannot be an overnight decision. To plan for hair transplant you need to visit for a consult where the hair transplant surgeon assesses the various aspects of the hair transplant procedure. One of the primary things to assess during the consult is the grade of baldness based on which the most crucial decisions are taken. The decisions relying on the assessment of grades of baldness includes:
- Number of hair grafts needed for the procedure: The grade of baldness and available hair density at the donor area decides on the number of hair grafts needed to perform the procedure. The higher will be the number of grafts needed when the grade of baldness is advanced and extensive.
- Cost of the procedure: The cost of the procedure definitely relies on the area of badness as the higher the grade of baldness more will be the cost of the procedure.
- Technique used to perform the procedure: The area of baldness also decides on the technique used to perform the procedure. In the extensive bald stages and high density hair transplant the FUT hair transplant technique is considered a viable option. This technique could successfully provide approximately 3000 – 3500 hair grafts. FUE hair transplant technique is opted in cases of initial hair transplant and facial hair transplant. This technique could obtain approximately 2000 – 2500 hair grafts.
- Expectations from the results: The grades of baldness and availability of the hair grafts are very good parameter to judge on regarding how much you can expect from the procedure. If the grades of baldness is higher and the availability of the hair follicles at the donor area is scanty then you might not be able to receive high density hair transplant and the hair transplant surgeon would surely suggest you regarding how much you can expect from the procedure.
