Last month we wrote a blog post on what we believed were the best celebrity hair transplants.
After careful consideration, we crowned James Nesbitt’s full head of hair the best resulting celebrity hair transplant, based on his natural looking results. Nesbitt was closely followed by Wayne Rooney’s new locks.
Celebs who have previously revealed to have had the procedure include Jason Gardiner, Alistair McGowan, Rob Brydon, Kyran Bracken, Mel Gibson, Elton John, Shane Warne, Duncan Bannatyne, Liam Neeson and Gordon Ramsey. And, more recently, X Factor judge Louis Walsh – who is still the talk of the tabloids with his impressive head of hair.
We asked our hair transplant expert, Dr.Reddy, what he thought about each of the celeb treatments, to which he revealed:
“James Nesbitt has had two surgeries a year apart to get the desired density. It appears he had somewhere in the region of 2000-2500 grafts, possibly involving 4500-5500 hairs. The surgeon has taken care of the facial aesthetic and designed an age specific hair-line. Overall I believe it is a very desirable outcome.”
When commenting on Wayne Rooney’s head of hair, Dr.Reddy added: “Wayne Rooney, as widely publicised, has opted for an FUE. I believe his primary considerations were his age, amount of pain involved, recovery period, outcomes and the fact that he likes to keep his hair short.
Rooney had a two day procedure involving 2000-2200 grafts, yielding 5000-6000 hairs. Again, the hairline looks very natural and the surgeon has resisted the temptation of going for a low hairline as this would have compromised the number of available hair for future hair transplants. Overall I think that the result of the treatment is a good aesthetic and surgical outcome.”
Louis Walsh’s sudden hair growth is always a tabloid favourite, so we thought we’d also ask Dr.Reddy to share his views on the music mogul’s new look, to which he replied with:
“Louis Walsh’s hair looks different, because he has had thicker hair from the back transplanted. It appears that the hair at the back was darker than the hair at the front. This does happen as the hair at the back is stronger and has deeper pigmentation.”
Dr.Reddy is a certified doctor and a member of the British Medical Association. Dr.Reddy’s main area of specialisation is hair loss and hair transplant procedures. Having practised both the Strip Method and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant, he has spent years perfecting an advanced method of FUE Hair Transplant, for better results and less downtime. His technique – the 3G FUE – is a great leap in advancement compared with other traditional techniques. Dr. Reddy performs the 3G FUE Hair Transplant exclusively at The Private Clinic.
