Hair Transplants For Men

Norwood Classification for Males

Dr. Feinberg is a pioneer in hair restoration and an expert surgeon. He uses the latest technology to perform hair transplants for males who are experiencing hair loss, creating realistic and natural results. The surgical option for male hair restoration is a Norwood hair transplant.

The Norwood classification, published in 1975 by Dr. O’tar Norwood, is the most widely used classification for hair loss in men. It defines two major patterns and several less common types (see the chart below). In the regular Norwood pattern, two areas of hair loss–a bitemporal recession and thinning crown–gradually enlarge and coalesce until the entire front, top and crown (vertex) of the scalp are bald.

There are seven levels of loss in the Norwood scale. View the galleries below to see before and after results using the Norwood method. Book a consultation with Dr. Feinberg and get started now.
