hi doctor ,I’m a 48 year old male who’s had seb derm in my eyebrows for the best part of thirty years .this has caused shedding of the eyebrows over the years as the scales seem to lift the hairs and they fall out . I’m now desperate as the loss is obvious and the patchiness makes me depressed and very self concious .I’m considering a transplant after having read of your success in this procedure ,but I’m concerned that the condition will continue and then I’ll lose the transplanted hairs . In your opinion ,do the transplanted hairs have more strength in the brow because they are implanted deeper ? have you had any feedback from patients who underwent this procedure as a consequence of eyebrow loss from sebderm like mine ?
The transplanted hair will behave like the hair in the back of your scalp (the donor hair) and they may be more resistant to the effects of the dermatitis. Scalp hair transplanted to the eyebrow will continue to grow long (as your scalp hair does in their original position) so you will need to trim it.
