Male Pattern Baldness Diagnosis

Typical male pattern baldness is usually diagnosed based on the appearance and pattern of the hair loss, along with a detailed medical history, including questions about the prevalence of hair loss in your family. Dr. Sean Behnam performs a detailed history and physical exam to determine the etiology of your hair loss.

An experienced hair loss specialist should examine the scalp under magnification (preferably with a device called a densitometer) to assess the degree of miniaturization of the hair follicles. This assessment is very important for recommending the proper course of treatment.

Dr. Behnam uses the densitometer to determine whether hair loss is due to natural aging or due to abnormal scarring.

Norwood Scale

This chart of hair loss pictures is a useful tool for diagnosis (and to avoid misdiagnosis) and for describing the extent of hair loss for treatment purposes. There may be times you will have to relay this information via telephone or the Internet to physicians or practitioners from whom you are seeking information. Note that there are many variants in pattern hair loss; the images on the Norwood Scale have been cited as the most typical.
