Q: 

Would surgeons do work on patchy hair loss ?

A: Are you speaking of the donor area as well? If the donor area is patchy, then I would say absolutely not. Sounds like you have Alopecia Areata. No HT doctor with any conscience at all would perform surgery on you. The good thing is that it usually resolves on it''s own. It doesn''t look patchy in your profile pics Levrais is right.
