10 Celebrities That Undergo Hair Transplant Surgery

When it comes to their looks, celebrities do not compromise. This is one aspect of their lives they cannot afford to let down. Many Hollywood celebrities have (and still do) invested a fortune just for their appearance to be enhanced.

Breast augmentation, Liposuction, Brazilian Butt Lift, and Rhinoplasty are the most common plastic surgery procedures on most female celebs' to-do lists. Liposuction and Rhinoplasty are also popular among Male celebrities, but it is the Hair Transplant procedure that tops their list.

This article will present to you 10 male celebrities who have had hair transplantation surgery in the past decade. But before we delve into any details, here is a brief discussion about Hair Transplant surgery.

Hair Transplant

A hair transplant surgery is a cosmetic procedure that involves transferring hair follicles from an area of sufficient hair growth (known as the donor area) to a bald area (referred to as a recipient area). You can think of it as a procedure designed to combat baldness.

More often than not, people think that a hair transplant is a procedure done to one’s head, but it can also be done to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard, and chest hair.

Having been first performed in the late 1930s by a Japanese dermatologist, hair transplant surgery has come a long way and it has advanced over the years, thanks to the advent of technology.

Due to these technological advancements, dermatologists now use two safe techniques when performing a hair transplant. The first technique is known as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) —this method involves harvesting single hair follicles from the donor area to the recipient area. The second technique is referred to as Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), and it's different from the first one in that hair follicles are transplanted as a small group.


Why Choosing the Clinic So Important?

Many foreign patients face the challenge of choosing a clinic that’s right for hair transplant treatment. If you have conducted thorough research on the internet, you might have noticed that many clinics claim to be the best when it comes to hair transplant procedures. In all our articles, we often advise our readers to be extra careful when it comes to choosing the right clinic to have a medical or cosmetic procedure.

The success of a hair transplant procedure, or any other surgery, is determined by where you have the surgery or by the surgeon who performs the procedure. It’s best to have it at a clinic that has a high success rate and that uses technologically advanced equipment to perform the surgery. One such hospital you might want to consider is Acıbadem in Turkey —this institution has a reputation for giving satisfying results and their hair transplant success rates are high.

Having said that, here is a list of the 10 celebrities who have had successful hair transplant procedures.

Jeremy McConnel

The ones I get the most are: “I love your hair!”, and “is it naturally like that?” (since it will air dry into long coils) prompting me to show them that a couple of coils actually change rotation halfway down. “who would pay for that I reply?” Then there’s the “women would die for that hair!”, and rounding out my top five are: “Can I touch it?” (sweet little old ladies or women of color have said that) and “Look at those curls, I’m so jealous!”.
