Following in the footsteps of Wayne Rooney, heartthrob and famous ‘IT’ boy about town, Calum Best, has been added to the list of celebrities,who have had a hair transplant procedure.
Calum, the son of footballer George Best, was reportedly fed up of losing his hair prematurely and wanted the hair transplant procedure to help pump up his confidence and low self-esteem.
Now 31 years old, Calum has been losing his hair since the age of 23 thanks to a number of reasons, mainly that he did not look after his hair when he was younger. Calum admits that years of bleaching his hair did not help, nor did pulling back his mane into a tight ponytail and thus causing the onset of traction alopecia, a condition where hair shafts are placed under excessive tension, causing the hair to be pulled and the follicle to be damaged.
During the procedure, Calum had 1,850 individual hairs moved from the side of his scalp, where his hair is thickest, and planted to the front where his hairline had begun to recede greatly.
When asked to comment about his new thick head of hair, Calum said: I am so pleased I had it done. I was fed up of losing my hair and wanted to look good. You only have to see how much better people like Wayne Rooney, James Nesbitt and Gordon Ramsay look after having similar operations.
Until recently, hair transplant procedures have been difficult to carry out and have not been always successful. Older hair transplant techniques, such as the Strip Surgery procedure, leave scarring and do not always produce the natural results that the patient (or practitioner) desire.
The Private Clinic hair specialists Dr. Raghu Reddy and Dr. Kouremada Zioga offer the most advanced, minimally invasive hair transplant methodologies and techniques available today.
The Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant procedure (FUE) involves removing healthy hair follicles directly from a donor area on the scalp, usually at the back of the head where the hair is plentiful, and grafting them onto the bald or thinning areas.
Dr. Raghu Reddy is one of the most sought after hair transplant specialists in the UK. He has spent years perfecting the advanced method of FUE hair transplant to ensure better results and minimal downtime, and is the leading authority on FUE hair transplant procedures in the UK.
Dr. Kouremada Zioga is one of the most experienced FUE hair transplant surgeons, having carried out over 2,000 procedures to date. She has worked extensively throughout Europe and has treated many high profile patients from across Asia and the Middle East. Her experience in reparative treatments to scarred areas, particularly resulting from the Strip Hair Transplant procedure, is extensive, with highly successful results.
Both Dr. Kouremada Zioga and Dr. Reddy perform hair restoration on the face, including on the beard, mustache and eyebrows, and are able to perform some hair transplants using body hair.
