Hi, I am a 22 year old male studying in New York. Since August last year, i have been facing hair loss from my facial beard. Doctors claimed it is alopecia areata. I was under meds for about 4 to 5 months and it got better momentarily but i guess it came back since i am loosing my beard around my chin and neck area! I read a couple of your stuff on this website and i was eager to know if i would be able to do a beard transplant on the affected area considering i might be suffering from alopecia areata. Your help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease, potentially affecting all of your hair follicles. It could attack any transplanted hair that is placed into the balding area and those hairs will die. So unfortunately, transplantation isn’t a wise option for you. For more on alopecia areata, see the National Alopecia Areata Foundation.
