To find out which treatment is right for you, see the diagram that looks more like your baldness. You will also find treatment suggestions for each case.


Type 1

It is a type in which there are still no areas with loss of volume or baldness. But if the look of your hair is already bothering you and the amount is apparently becoming insufficient, you can simply undergo a clinical treatment with oral and topical medications; In addition to applications in the scalp. The goal is to slow down the hair loss and maintain the current volume until there is indication for a hair transplant.


Type 2

In this phase the frontal line is retracted and also a rarefaction of the hair in the area of the “entrances” occurs at this stage. Clinical treatment is important but a small transplant session may already be performed.



Type 2A

Mid-range session. The frontal retraction is evident, with the hair loss of the anterior line. Clinical treatment with topical and oral medications is necessary to inhibit hair loss. The transplant is the solution to redo the frontal line naturally using F.U.E. techniques. Robotic, Manual FUE or FUT.


Tipo 3

As “entradas” estão mais pronunciadas e o “topete” menos denso. Os tratamentos clínicos devem ser iniciados, mas o primeiro transplante já pode ser decidido para a restauração desta área.



Type 3A

The frontal retraction is more pronounced and the frontal (forehead) area becomes very high and large, losing the aesthetic balance of the face. The transplant is the solution to redo the frontal line naturally with the technique F.U.E. Robotic or FUE Manual.


Type 4

Besides the frontal retraction and the well-developed “entrances”, the crown also shows reduction or absence of hair. Restoring these areas through transplantation is important to eliminate bald or semi-bald areas. Clinical treatment should not be discontinued.


Type 4A

At this stage the baldness is already well marked. The crown is bald, well delimited and apparent. The frontal region also accentuates the bald part. The amount of hair lost is large and the bald areas are well defined. The transplant can restore the two areas (front and crown) less dense or in this first surgery the front with more density and the second surgery with more density in the back or vice versa.


Type 5

The frontal baldness already begins to interconnect with the crown. A small band of thin, low-growing hair remains in the upper region of the head (vertex), separating the crown from the frontal region. Clinical treatments can still be maintained if there is a reasonable amount of natural hair. The transplant is the solution to reverse the baldness that is becoming total.


Type 5A

The previous situation evolved even more with the loss of hair also in the upper part of the head. A remnant miniaturized fuzz or yarn can still be seen. A comprehensive transplant may cover the entire area and the individual ceases to be bald but with low density. A second surgery can be prepared in the future for greater density. At this stage the clinical treatment has no efficacy.


Type 6

The upper part of the bald area has evolved fully by attaching the crown to the wider frontal region. The baldness is already total and the transplant is the only indication. In this degree, the capacity and quality of the donor area begins to be evaluated for the definition of the best surgical strategy, depending on the offer of donor area and the patient’s desire. At this stage the clinical treatment can be discontinued because there is practically no hair in the area affected by the genetic inheritance.


Type 7

Due to the extension of the bald area the donor region is getting smaller and smaller. The donor area is analyzed for donation and density to allow megasession of transplantation or partial surgery.



Type 8

In this case it is not always possible to perform the transplantation with the amount of grafts required for complete coverage of the bald area. The capacity of the donor area is well reduced at this stage, making it impossible for megasession. The amount of grafts will vary according to what was possible to be collected in the donor area.
