  • Male pattern baldness is mostly the result of a genetic event that causes dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a male hormone, to cause the hair follicles to atrophy. Male pattern baldness is a steadily growing affliction today and affects men from 16 years of age onwards.Due to multifactorial reasons, the last decade has seen an increase in the number of males suffering from MPB and the figure in India is alarming. This present study is the first of its kind in India. Beards and a full head of hair were seen as being more aggressive and less socially mature, and baldness was associated with more social maturity.

This present study is the first of its kind in India. Beards and a full head of hair were seen as being more aggressive and less socially mature, and baldness was associated with more social maturity.
  • Since figures for India were lacking, we at our center set out to do a survey alongwith a hair transplant firm seeking a footprint in the country.
  • E-mailers sent to men in middle and upper socioeconomic strataSuch large number of respondents suggest that MPB is a grave concern in Indian males.
  • Male pattern baldness is classified on the Hamilton-Norwood scale I-VII.
  • A rough rule of thumb is that the incidence of baldness in males corresponds to chronological age.
  • 65% respondents had received various medicines for MPB. Only 1.03% were happy with medication. In others hair loss continued despite exorbitant medicine costs involved.
  • Onset of hair loss sometimes begins as early as the end of puberty, and is mostly genetically determined. It was previously believed that baldness was inherited from the maternal grandfather. While there is some basis for this belief, both parents contribute to their offspring's likelihood of hair loss. Most likely, inheritance is technically "autosomal dominant with mixed penetrance"[citation needed].It has been speculated that this is an evolutionary event that signifies maturity and conveys greater authority on affected men.
