About the Norwood Scale
The Norwood scale is a way for medical professionals to evaluate an individual’s level of hair loss. Patients in the beginning stages of depletion are placed in categories two and three of the scale, while those who have lost a substantial amount of hair are moved further down the scale. Category seven on the Norwood scale is reserved for those suffering from severe baldness either due to genetics or injury. The scale, as categorized from one to seven, is only useful for male patients. There is another way to classify women battling hair loss.
Severe Hair Loss Treatment
Those suffering from severe hair loss usually begin to research possible remedies after coming to grips with reality. During the course of research, men find that there are three forms of severe baldness treatment to consider:
- Hair loss medications
- Use of wigs and hairpieces
- Hair transplantation
Hair Loss Medications
Although medications such as Minoxidil, commonly referred to as Rogaine, is an effective alternative for those experiencing hair thinning, it does not help individuals suffering from severe hair loss. Finasteride, much like Rogaine, is also a remedy that does nothing to help those with little to no hair follicles.
Use of Wigs and Hairpieces
Using hair-mimicking garments to cover baldness is a remedy that many turn to in an effort to quickly, but temporarily, fix the problem of hair loss. Hairpieces come in different forms and quality. Regardless of the type used, the practice involves a lot of maintenance due to its need to be refreshed regularly and reapplied.
Wigs and hairpieces are not believable in most, if not all, instances. Without a temple point and hairline, the substitute is easily detectable as artificial. Constant fear and embarrassment due to discovery is a mental burden that individuals who opt for hairpieces instead of severe baldness treatment cope with on a daily basis.
A common, but limited method of hair transplantation is by the way of strip harvesting. This surgery involves cutting a piece of skin from the back of the head and carefully extracting hair follicles from the sample. Strands are transferred from the strip to the balding area as a way of treating hair loss. Although strip harvesting can be effective, it is not an option for those suffering from severe balding since hair follicles must be present on the scalp for the procedure to be successful. Dr U has innovated a much more effective severe hair loss treatment for men all over the world.
Dr.UGraft was created by Dr. Sanusi Umar to provide extreme baldness treatment to patients who cannot undergo traditional hair loss surgery because of donor limitations. The method involves an advanced form of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) that cuts around individual hair follicles instead of taking a strip of skin from the back of the patient’s head.
Results from FUE treatments are much more desirable than the effects of strip harvesting restoration that leaves visible scars and only partial coverage. Minor punctures are made during FUE hair restoration surgery that heal with time and leave barely noticeable wounds.
Traditional methods of FUE are effective for those suffering from hair thinning, but Dr.UGraft is better suited for severe baldness treatment. Here are a few reasons why Dr U’s method is so effective:
- Dr.UGraft allows for efficient hair extraction from any part of the body. This method, known as Body Hair Transplant (BHT), allows Norwood scale category six and seven patients to have hair taken from their beard, torso, legs and arms to restore hair to the scalp.
- Gentle pulling preserves the graft during extraction so more follicles can be used during restoration.
- Wounds caused by Dr.UGraft heal faster than traditional FUE equipment.
What Patients Should Know
- Not everyone will qualify for Body Hair Transplant.
- Conducting research before undergoing hair loss treatment gives patients a better understanding of what to expect.
- Finding a surgeon with creativity and vision is key to a successful session of severe hair loss hair transplant treatment.
- Norwood scale category seven patients should be content with results that resemble that of a category two individuals.

Baldness affects all of us, even the rich and famous.

Ironically the solution has been available to them by way of the UGraft Revolution.
