    hello Dr.
    My name is Sam. I have KP as a health insurer. They won’t cover hair transplants, Why i don’t know. I am disfigured and my scare is a health risk caused by sun exposure.
    I have been told I have one of the largest Nevus sebaceous (or nevus sebaceus, also known as an “Organoid nevus” or “Nevus sebaceous of Jadassohn” is a congenital, hairless plaque that typically occurs on the face or scalp.[3] Such nevi are present at birth, affecting males and females of all races equally.[4] The condition is named for an overgrowth of sebaceous glands in the area of the nevus.( mine however did grow hair in many parts. (LIKE MY TEMPLE POINTS)

    Mine is across the left side of my face (which has had skin flap surgerY to remove most of the defect on my left cheek)done by tissue expantion surgery that was horrific. my left temple point however along with my entire upper left scalp has the ugly birtch defect that was once totaly covered by hair now visable.
    I will always have to wear a wig on top with a hair piece no matter what, but i do think not having my temple points wither away is making things worse. Having them restores would make my fake wig on top look better. I buy top of the line human hair lace front wigs but they have their downsides. Can hair be transplanted over a birthmark defect where hair once fully covered the defect?

    Sam,

    If you’d like to discuss this situation with Dr. Limmer, feel free to contact his clinic:

    However, it’s very difficult to assess your situation over the internet and without the consulting physician present. I do recommend contacting Dr. Limmer or another one of our recommended hair transplant surgeons. Good luck!
