It can be a frightening process to pursue a hair transplant, and many people feel as though they are the only person who is suffering from hair loss and
choosing surgical treatment. These individuals should know they’re not alone. Hair loss affects the vast majority of people and the hair transplant industry is one of the fastest growing cosmetic surgery industries in the world.
We have compiled an extensive list sharing the details of celebrities who have experienced hair loss and we believe have undergone a hair transplantation. We hope this will help show our readers they are not alone, and many of their idols have suffered from the same issues.
In our experts’ opinion, Elon Musk would have needed at least two hair transplants to conceal his relatively aggressive hair loss. Although he has not officially confirmed whether or not he had a hair transplant, he most likely would have gotten several transplants between 2010 to 2018.
He appeared to have Norwood scale 4 when his hair loss was at its most extreme which would have required 4,000 to 5,000 grafts to fully cover his bald spots.
We believe he must’ve needed an initial hair transplant to harvest a large number of grafts and a secondary transplant to fill in thinning areas as his hair loss progressed. For him to maintain the results he has obtained with hair transplants he is most likely using a medication like finasteride to stop future hair loss.
Wayne Rooney is one of the few celebrities who has been interested in publicly documenting his hair transplant journey. He has publicly shared the details of his two hair transplants.
His norwood scale 3 hair loss has required an original transplant of 2,500 hair grafts in 2011 and a further 1,000 hair grafts in 2013.
Although he has never publicly confirmed treatment, we believe it is clear that Gordon must’ve had an hair transplant around 2011. At one point in time his hair loss was at roughly a Norwood scale 3. He most likely received a transplant of 2,500 grafts to fill in his temporal region and receding hairline.
Jamie Foxx has never publicly confirmed his hair transplant, although it is pretty clear he must have had an hair transplant around 2007. He had been at roughly a Norwood scale 2 of hair loss before the transplant.
After showing signs of hair loss in previous years, his hair line had appeared to move forward significantly. He also showed off a tattoo on the back of his head around 2007 which covers the place where a possible FUT scar would have been.
Elton John spoke of getting two unsuccessful and painful FUT hair transplants in his autobiography during the late 1970s which did not provide the results he had hoped. At this point in time hair transplant technologies were not well developed and the results were still unnatural.
He stated that he did not follow the doctor’s instructions well and lost the transplanted hair. He suffered from an advanced Norwood scale 4 hair loss which caused him to have significant insecurities and he continued to seek out treatment. He had a final FUE hair transplant in 2013, and combined with the use of Propecia and Rogaine has maintained a full head of hair since then.
John Travolta has not publicly confirmed whether he got a hair transplant, however the difference in his hair line over the years is a clear indication that he must have gotten a transplant.
Travolta had advanced hair loss at roughly a Norwood scale 4 which would require around 4,000 hair grafts to provide the full head of hair he now has. We can estimate he had his operation around 2014 to 2016.
Stallone’s hair loss was not very advanced, he appeared to be at a Norwood scale 2 before 2013. We believe he had a hair transplant in 2013 as his hairline then appeared much lower. He wouldn’t have required a large number of grafts to fill in his temple area.
Like Stallone, Ben Affleck had a less advanced form of hair loss. He was at an early Norwood scale 3 before his supposed hair transplant. He had a receding hair line at his temples and a thinning vertex area at the crown of his head. After analyzing before and after photos of him we believe he must have gotten a hair transplant done in 2014. It is unclear whether he has taken any form of medication to maintain his transplant results.
Although he hasn’t confirmed seeking hair loss treatment our experts believe Tom Hanks must have had a hair transplant. He received a subtle, natural improvement of his hairline with a transplant at some point in 2014.
He was suffering from a receding hairline at his temples which are characteristic of a Norwood scale 2. The hair transplant created an age-appropriate, full hair line for him.
Jude Law was suffering from advanced hair loss between Norwood scale 3 or 4 when his hair loss was at its worst. He attempted to initially hide his hair loss by wearing hats regularly in public before turning to more permanent treatments.
We believe he must have undergone two transplants, the first in 2011 and the second in 2014.
Mel Gibson has not confirmed his hair transplant, but his changing hair line is indicative of the treatment. He was suffering from an advanced form of hair loss at a Norwood scale 4 prior to treatment. It is believed he had his transplant done in 2005. He now has an age-appropriate, full hairline which suits him very well.
Matthew McConaughey has denied receiving a hair transplant and has claimed that the medication known as Regenix is the only treatment he uses for hair loss. He had a significantly receding hair line at his temples characteristic of a Norwood scale 2.
After 2014 his temples appeared to have become much fuller and laid further forward. It is highly unlikely he would have seen these new hair growth results without the help of a hair transplant.
No official statement has been made by Costner confirming or denying if he sought treatment for his hair loss. Our experts believe he must have gotten a hair transplant around 2006 or 2007.
He had shown signs of a receding hair line and thinning on the top of his head, he was at roughly a Norwood scale 3 of hair loss. After 2007 he had increased density at the top of his head and a lower hairline from what we believe is an FUE method hair transplant.
Sean Penn has not publicly remarked on his hair loss. He had a Norwood scale 2 degree of hair loss with receding temples. He appears to have had a hair transplant at some point as his temples have regained their hair. The results of his treatment look very natural.
Cryer had an advanced form of hair loss at Norwood scale 5 with extensive thinning and balding at the top of the head and along the hair line. He has not come forward about having a hair transplant, although he had discussed using coverups while filming tv shows to hide his hair loss.
It is clear by the significant improvement in his hair density than he must have had at least one hair transplant, likely several.
Cage hasn’t confirmed suspicions that he has gotten a hair transplant, although the difference in his hair line makes it clear that he must have. He was displaying symptoms of hair loss at roughly a Norwood scale 4 with an aggressively receding hair line. We believe he would have gotten a hair transplant around 2014.
Robbie Williams has been relatively open about the hair transplant he underwent in 2013. He underwent an FUE method procedure and was pleased with the results at first until he noticed further balding after the transplant.
He has turned to using a powder to conceal the further thinning and give the appearance of greater density.
Iglesias has not publicly confirmed whether he sought treatment for hair loss, but it is well known that his father, Julio Iglesias, pursued an unsuccessful hair transplant. Enrique Iglesias appeared to be suffering from Norwood scale 3 before he showed an obvious improvement as a result of a hair transplant.
Al Pacino hasn’t commented on his hair loss publicly. He has a Norwood scale 3 degree of hair loss although his longer hairstyle helped him to disguise the hair loss for a long time. Little is known for certain about his transplant but his hair line appears much denser and lays lower on the head.
Beckham has never publicly confirmed that he underwent a hair transplant, although many people have suspected he had a transplant done in 2018.
He displayed thinning along the top of his head and a bald patch at the crown of the head, he was in-between a Norwood scale 2 to 3. Our experts believe he had an FUE method of transplant performed.
Khan has had four hair transplant surgeries in total, two FUE and two FUT. He began his hair transplantation journey in 2003 with an FUT hair transplant in India. He wasn’t pleased with these results as a scar was left on the back of his head. He then traveled to Dubai to have his FUE hair transplant. He was much happier with the results of this procedure. He went from a Norwood 2 to 3 degree of hair loss to having a full, thick head of hair.
We hope you can have a little more confidence and assurance when pursuing a hair transplant as a solution to hair loss. This extensive list of celebrities should show you you’re not alone in your struggle with progressive hair loss. Many people have elected to have a hair transplant in fact, it is one of the fastest growing cosmetic surgery industries.
