    Abstract
    BACKGROUND:
    The Norwood classification system is commonly used to ascertain the progress of androgenetic alopecia (Androgenetic Alopecia) with a robust and quick assessment, but it lacks precision in the frontal region, notably during the onset of male pattern hair loss.

    OBJECTIVE:
    Due to the ongoing technical improvement in restorative hair transplantation practices, we aim to develop simple quantitative methods for measuring the progression of Androgenetic Alopecia.

    METHODS:
    Here, we used a quantitative system to evaluate the progress of Androgenetic Alopecia of the frontal receding hairline in a case study with 41 patients.

    RESULTS:
    We found subtle differences in the extent of frontotemporal regressions that were not captured by the Norwood classification system. The majority of patients exhibited significantly larger right-sided frontotemporal regressions.

    CONCLUSION:
    These results indicate that the quantification system used is a valuable tool in complementing the Norwood classification system to more precisely determine the recessing hairline characteristics in early stages of hair loss. Our findings also suggest that hairline regression in Androgenetic Alopecia-affected patients is asymmetrical, a hitherto unnoticed disorder-associated phenomenon with unknown biological causality.

    Interesting that it's usually larger on the right side. I would have guessed that if it were an issue, it would be random.

    Ugh, I'm pretty sure my right temple is receding faster.

    Did you measure the frontal hairloss similar to the investigation ?

    My right temple went first, but now I think the left is worse.

    Right noticeably worse here as well.... WTF.

    Any theories? Heart is more to the left side... perhaps the left temple gets more blood supply and as such is resistant to the DHT choking it off longer than the right side. Just a shitty guess.

    Perhaps the position where we have the parting hairline?

    or perhaps the position where we support face on the pillow?

    Yeah, most likely a genetic pattern of DHT receptor expression

    Every face is asymmetric at some degree, why not hairline before Androgenetic Alopecia ?

    This is not the topic, or this will end with a showcase of every asymmetric NW0 famouses hairlines

    But beauty means symmetry, we pretty much all agree on that
