The words “hair transplant” may not seem or sound appealing at first – that is until one finds out who has had it and how it turned out for that person.
One recent example is singer-songwriter Robbie Williams, the man behind the hit songs Feel, Angels, and She’s the One. Last November, Williams revealed he had a “thatch” done while in Los Angeles, which explains why he has been sporting luscious locks. When asked about it:
“I’ve lived in LA for a long time and they say, ‘If you sit in a barber’s shop for long enough, you’ll get a hair cut’. Well, if you live in Los Angeles for long enough you’re going to get some surgery.” Robbie joked during his appearance on the Graham Norton Show which airs on Friday night.
The 39-year-old star—who has been sporting a silver streak in his hair recently—remained frank about his surgery as he reiterated the fact he didn’t need to have the treatment.
He said: “I’ve had a thatch done, I’ll tell everyone now. I didn’t even need it. That’s the weirdest thing. I had like three months off and got bored so thought, I’ll go in.”
Williams joins the unofficial league of extraordinary gentlemen who had received the treatment, a league which includes other big names like former footballer David Beckham, entertainment manager Louis Walsh, Hollywood star Mel Gibson, and TV chef Gordon Ramsay.
Among the variety of hair loss solutions today, hair transplant seems the most popular choice for men. A survey by a company that helps consumers find doctors shows more men are asking about hair transplants. In terms of getting hair transplants as affordable as possible, Mexico is the most common answer.
The hair transplant process uses healthy follicles with surrounding skin and tissue called grafts. One professional says that hair transplants in the United States cost $5 to $10 a graft, but the average male patient needs 1,500 to 3,000 grafts. Meanwhile, a Mexico hair transplant treatment, such as that offered in Baja Hair Center, can cost up to 75% less than that in the U.S
That’s a pretty huge price difference, and that’s why it’s no wonder that many clients would prefer to travel all the way across the border just to get a hair transplant in Mexico.
