Alopecia is an atypical condition in which the immune system attacks the follicles and causes hair loss. This can take a variety of different forms. Alopecia areata presents as one or more patches of baldness in random areas of the scalp. This condition can progress to alopecia totalis, in which all head hair is completely lost. In patients with alopecia universalis, there is a total lack of hair on the entire head, face, and body. Another related condition is called scarring alopecia (cicatricial alopecia), in which inflammatory processes destroy the hair follicles and replace them with scar tissue. The most common cause of scarring alopecia is a skin condition called lichen planopilaris.
Hair transplants are almost never a suitable solution for alopecia, given the nature of this condition. Alopecia areata is unpredictable, and since the patches can appear anywhere, there is no “safe zone” to extract donor grafts from. In cases where alopecia affects the entire head, there are no available donor grafts at all. This creates a very distressing situation for most alopecia sufferers, who frequently resort to wearing hairpieces or hats in order to hide their condition.
