Dealing with a Receding Hairline

Receding hairline is a very common type of male pattern baldness. In a receding hairline, hair loss usually begins near the temples, creating a “V” pattern of baldness in this area.

The receding hairline differs from a frontal bald spot. In the frontal bald spot, the hair at the temples may recede, the entire front of the forehead also experiences hair loss, resulting in full frontal baldness.

A receding hairline is often accompanied by “vertex” baldness – or a bald spot at the crown.

Norwood Hair Loss Classification System

The Norwood Hair Loss Classification System categorizes types of mail pattern baldness. It makes little difference to you what kind of baldness you have, but it may help when you are talking to your hair transplant surgeon. Note that receding hairlines are classified as Norwood Classifications I, II, or III.

The good news for patients looking for solutions is that a receding hairline is treatable with hair transplant surgery.
