There really is no exact science when it comes to classifying patients using the Norwood scale. I am sure if you asked several hair restoration physicians to categorize your hairloss you would get some say you are a stage 2, some would say stage 3, and even a few who would say you do not fit exactly into either category. The bottom line is that if you are not happy with your current hairline then you should do a few consultations to see what your options are regarding hair transplantation and at the very least what you can do to prevent further hairloss.
