Classifying Hair Loss - What Is My Norwood Class?

September 7, 2017

To get anywhere, you need to have a starting point. With hair loss or male pattern baldness, to “grade” that starting (or reference) point, we use the Norwood system of classification. The same classification system can be used to track the progression of hair loss. Understanding the current extent of loss as well as the pattern to which the balding is likely to follow is essential when looking at treatment options. Importantly, it can be used by doctors to document a foundation and then monitor and evaluate treatment outcomes.

We explain each class in the Norwood classification system below. To get a correct diagnosis for your hair loss, it is imperative to see a hair restoration expert. Only then will you have the right information to decide on your path for successful hair loss treatment.

FUT, FUE, DHI - Hair Transplant Differences Explained

June 8, 2017

Thinning hair can have such an impact on a person, it can cause stress, anxiety and loss of self esteem, making you feel like you’d do anything to remedy the situation. Making a rash decision on a hair transplant can have diabolical consequences for a number of reasons. Firstly, the result can be unnatural looking, you may have a low follicle survival rate and worse still, so much damage can be done to the donor area that corrective surgery may not be a possibility.

In this article we explain the difference between FUT, FUE and the DHI methods and why DHI stand head and shoulders above the industry in terms of process, quality and results.

Tomorrow is the big day! Tomorrow is the day of my DHI hair transplant. Firstly, let me introduce myself, my name is Mikko and I am a Manager at DHI Australia. So, why am I having a hair transplant? Recently my father has started to comment how my face gets longer every time we meet. 😉
