Do you suffer from alopecia areata? Do you want to know if hair transplant is
a viable treatment option for alopecia areata? Let’s discuss this further. Hello, I am Dr. Sachin Pawar, Hair Transplant
surgeon, Hair MD, Pune. Before we discuss if hair transplant is a
viable option for alopecia, let us try and understand alopecia and hair transplant. So, what is alopecia? Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition
in which the hair loss patterns are unpredictable. This condition may be seen in any gender and
at any age. In this condition, your immune system considers
your hair follicles as a foreign element and attacks them. This causes the hair follicles to shed. Alopecia depends on many factors. The reason behind your immune
system attacking your hair follicles is unknown. Mostly this is based on
genetics. If your family or relatives suffer from alopecia
areata, there are chances that you will too. If you suffer from alopecia areata you can
suffer from other autoimmune diseases like thyroiditis or vitiligo. There are different types of alopecia such
as alopecia totalis, alopecia universalis, diffused alopecia, ophiasis alopecia
and alopecia areata prognosis. In all these types, the hair loss occurs in
specific areas, but it also can be unpredictable. There are several treatments available for
alopecia such as intralesional corticosteroids injections,
Minoxidil, topical corticosteroids, Anthralin, Diphencyprone,
Immunosuppressants, and Light Therapy. These treatments may result in temporary hair
regrowth. If your immune system starts attacking the
hair follicles again, these hair will also shed. So as you may have seen, in this case, the
hair loss is unpredictable but it is also diffuse. This means that hair loss can occur on any
body part. This
type of hair loss has no defined or predictable boundaries. As you may know, to do a hair transplant we
extract hair follicles from the healthy and so called permanent zone and implant
then in the recipient area where they grow normally. Having a stable donor area is very important
for a hair transplant. The hair
in the donor area should not be prone to hair loss because of DHT or any
other reason. If there is no stable donor area on the scalp,
we cannot perform a hair transplant. If a hair transplant is done without a stable
donor area, the transplanted hair will also fall off. Now as we discussed, the hair loss pattern
is not predictable in alopecia areata. There is no predictable pattern hair loss
and there is no stable donor area. That is why we do not recommend hair transplants
to alopecia patients. They need to take other medical treatments
from time to time. I hope that you have understood why hair transplants
are not recommended to alopecia treatments. If you have any other questions, ask us in
the comments below. If you are suffering from alopecia you should
go to a dermatologist near you. There are several medical treatments that
are effective for alopecia to some extent. I know you must be quite concerned regarding
alopecia but you can overcome this. You can take help and support from your family,
friends and you can even join support groups for alopecia. Just don’t isolate yourself, stay strong
and you will be fine soon. I wish you all the very best. Thank you!
