It was only in the last 50 years or so that hair transplants were actually developed and it wasn’t until a few decades later that it was safely practicable on the highstreet. Previously, if you were experiencing hair loss of any kind – whether it was pattern baldness or a receding hairline, there were not many options available to you. Thankfully today, it is relatively quick and easy for men to resolve this troubling issue by getting a hair transplant from a trusted hair transplant clinic. This has been the case for many celebrities around the world. More and more male celebrities are opting for hair transplants to help them restore their hair to its former glory.
Having a hair transplant involves either; transplanting individual hairs onto areas of the head that are thinning or grafting pieces of skin with active hairs growing inside them. A hair transplant is typically carried out under local anaesthetic. This means that you will be awake but you won’t feel pain during the procedure. Because this is a type of cosmetic surgery it is not available on the NHS. Here are 5 celebrities that have greatly benefited from undergoing hair transplant surgery.
One of the most notable on this list was former Manchester United player Wayne Rooney. He started to suffer from baldness when he was just 25 years old. He underwent an FUE hair transplantation in 2011 and posted the news on Twitter: “Just to confirm to all my followers I have had a hair transplant. I was going bald at 25 why not. I’m delighted with the result. It’s still a bit bruised and swollen when it dies down and you will be first to see it. Anyone recommend any good hair gel. Haha.”
Second on the list is X Factor Judge and Westlife Manager Louis Walsh. He didn’t even notice he required a hair transplant until friend and boss Simon Cowell had told him about his thinning hair: ‘You know, you’re starting to lose your hair, dear” said Simon. Louis said ‘I am not, dear! And anyway, you’re going grey!’?” But Cowell persisted “Darling,” he sighed. “You are. You’re losing your hair”. Following this conversation, Mr Walsh said he was motivated into action when he finally had a look at the back of his head at the problem area.
Next up is the famous Hell’s Kitchen Chef Gordon Ramsey. His hairline began to recede and was restored by opting for what seems to be FUE hair transplant surgery. While he has never publicly spoken on his hair transplant, over the years many of his fans have noticed signs that a hair transplant had taken place. Unfortunately, also, the TV chef experienced what seemed to be an allergic reaction to the anaesthetic as his face was very puffy and swollen shortly after when he was pictured with David Beckham in LA. All the more reason that you do your due diligence and only opt for a hair transplant with a trusted professional clinic.
This Irish actor and TV presenter began to notice that he was losing hair and like a lot of men, became quite upset and concerned. Coupled with the fact that he was an actor and TV presenter, this meant he was always in the public eye and James felt that this could affect his career and other opportunities. Since then he has had several hair transplants and he is extremely pleased with the results. He even went on to say that “they’ve changed my life.” and that he has landed major roles in TV and film as a result.
The former Eastenders actor Joe Swash has spoken publicly about opting for a hair transplant earlier on towards the beginning of his career. He said that there was a pressure to look good on screen and mentioned that it was something he wanted to do and feel more comfortable about. He went on to say that because he was on TV and with all the work that he does, he wanted to look his best while also feeling great too.
