Hair Loss in Men

Androgenetic hair loss, also defined as genetic hair loss, is the most common form of hair loss in men. Characteristically, in this type of hair loss, hair loss begins first in small areas on the left and right sides of the front hairline. This area progresses towards the back, causing the hairline to recede. This leads to balding of the front of the head. A similar development is often observed on the crown of the head, called the vertex, where the hair rotation area is located, and ends with thinning of the hair. Over time, these areas increase in size and eventually merge, resulting in a completely bald head, except for an area at the back of the head and on the sides, which is protected in the form of a crown.

Androgenetic hair loss can be inherited from parents. If this unfavorable genetic condition is not inherited from the parents, it can also be inherited from an aunt or uncle.

The development of hair loss varies
Depending on genetic predisposition and susceptibility, the final stage of hair loss can range from loss of the hairline to loss of all hair. The development of hair loss varies. In some men, the frontal hairline may persist as a small balding area without any flare-ups until older age. In rare cases, there may be a loss of hair on the crown without any hair loss on the sides of the hairline.
