Hello. I am a 21 year old male who has been suffering from Alopecia since I was a child. Is eyebrow transplantation right for me? I have some eyebrows but they are sparse, and thin. I’ve tried medication such as cyclocort, minoxidil (5%), and cortisone injections, but results have been minimal.
Yes, this is an effective procedure for someone with your condition. Once performed, the transplants are permanent. There are several donor areas I can use- the best is the scalp, but if there are not hairs available for transplanting in that area,
I have used the legs, chest, and big toe for donor areas. It would be a pleasure to evaluate any photos you send to me, along with whatever information you can provide me with about your alopecia.
