Hi. Yesterday i was diagnosed with Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia. I was wondering if you know anything about having this disease and hair transplants. Since I was born with this can insurance cover it? I have spots and places where my hair will not grow. It requires me to wear hair extentions , and im thinking about a wig. Anyway , i was wondering if you knew anything about this.
Yes, I do know about ectodermal dysplasia. It is a genetic trait which can affect hair (among other things). I do not know how insurance coverage plays a factor in this, but I doubt that hair transplantation will be an option. With ectodermal dysplasia there are defects in the hair and skin that may make hair transplants not possible.
