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. Thanks
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.
