If you are experiencing significant hair loss, then you may want to consider having an unshaven FUE hair transplant. After all, if it makes you feel more confident and happier with yourself, then why not? You certainly won’t be alone in having the surgery either, as some of the most famous celebrities around the world have undergone treatment.
What is an unshaven hair transplant?
With this type of hair transplant, you do not need to shave your head before the procedure. Generally, the transplant will be carried out in the same manner as a normal FUE transplant. The only difference is that your surgeon will identify the healthiest hairs, so that they are harvested, transplanted, and grafted. Because of this, it is better suited for those suffering from small amounts of hair loss, rather than severe cases of hair loss.
Some patients are anxious about this part of the process before hair restoration, however, there is no need to be. Advancements and research into technology have led us to the point whereby FUE can be carried out without shaving the head. This is especially desirable for those in the public eye, as well as those who want to keep their hair transplant a secret.
Celebrities who have had a hair transplant
As mentioned, unshaven hair transplants are particularly prevalent for those in the public eye. Below, we will take a look at some of the celebs that have had this procedure. After all, can you ever remember seeing Mel Gibson or Louis Walsh completely bald?
The Manchester United footballer had to be the first person on the list after his hair transplant took the news by storm in the summer of 2011. Wayne Rooney proved that you are never too young to have a hair transplant. The then-27-year-old announced the news on his Twitter page and said that at 25 years of age he was going bald and that he was delighted with the result. The striker even shared a picture of his bloodied scalp after undergoing the follicular unit extraction procedure, which set him back approximately £13,500.
The Northern Irish actor has been very public about the hair transplants he has undergone, and he was so pleased that he went back for another one. In fact, Nesbitt has gone as far as to say that the surgeries he had changed his life.
It’s no surprise that the Braveheart actor started to lose his hair: after all, he does have eight children! The 56-year-old has never publicly confirmed having a hair transplant; however, those close to the actor have revealed that he underwent the treatment and apparently Mr Gibson is more than happy with the results.
The X Factor judge wasn’t afraid to splash the cash, spending a whopping £30,000 on the procedure. The 60-year-old has joked that he is going to give Gary Barlow the number for the doctor so that he can have a hair transplant as well.
So there you have it: the benefits of an unshaven hair transplant, and the male celebrities that have undergone hair transplants. And they are not the only ones, here are a few that just missed out on the list: Jason Gardiner, Tom Arnold, Gordon Ramsey, Matthew McConaughey, Dennis Miller, Jason Donovan, Rob Brydon and Duncan Bannatyne. Therefore, if you are experiencing hair loss, why not consider an unshaven hair transplant? And don’t worry, you won’t have to spend as much as Mr Walsh did…
