I’ve got male pattern baldness. Am 23. Lately i have been losing hair on eyebrows. My dad had lost his eyebrows in young age due to side effect of some thyroid medicine. My query is, is loss of eyebrows a part of male pattern baldness? What should one do in eyebrows loss. Thank You
The more common causes of eyebrows hair loss are genetic causes which run in families, or hypothyroidism. I recommended that you check with your primary doctor for blood work on thyroid level, TSH, & FT4. There are other causes of eyebrows hair loss, such as ezcema, imflammatory skin disease, plucking of the hair (trichotelomania), drugs, infection, and autoimmune disease. Like hair loss on the top of your head, eyebrows can be well addressed with a good modern hair transplant as well. I recommended that you may first do some blood work to rule out diseases causing the hair loss. Then, a trial of Propecia and Rogaine may help, but I doubt that these drugs will return eyebrow hair. After that, you may come to see me for free consultation and consider a hair transplant.
Here are two examples of eyebrow restoration:
