Has Kevin Spacey Had A Hair Transplant?

kevin spacey hair transplant belgravia centreIt was the kind of tennis that enthusiasts dream of, as Andy Murray beat Roger Federer to make it to the final of the Australian Open, where he will face Novak Djokovic. However, eagle-eyed spectators may have clocked the Usual Suspects star and Artistic Director of The Old Vic theatre Kevin Spacey at the match. They may also noticed his hair loss seems to have disappeared.

Pattern Hair Loss: The Usual Suspect

The Hollywood actor seemed to enjoy the men’s singles semi-final match at Melbourne Park, and was looking particularly dapper. On closer inspection, though, the star appeared to be sporting a healthy head of hair, a marked difference from recent photographs where he appeared to be experiencing male pattern hair loss.

Going from a receding hairline to a reasonably full head of hair can be achieved by using a hair loss treatment programme. For hair loss like Spacey’s, The Belgravia Centre would usually prescribe our unique high strength minoxidil 12.5% cream. Significantly stronger than over-the-counter hair loss treatments, our minoxidil formulation has been able to achieve an unprecedented level of regrowth for our patients.

American Beauty Without A Hair Transplant Op

A hair loss specialist might also recommend that the American Beauty star use the daily medication Propecia, which works by blocking the androgen that causes male pattern baldness, DHT. Propecia stops DHT attacking hair follicles on the scalp, and as over a long period of time DHT can cause follicles to stop producing new hair, this is a key step in preventing further shedding.

However, if Spacey has not been medically treating his hair loss with clinically approved medications, there are two further potential causes behind his new hairstyle. It could be that the actor has had a hair transplant. A hair transplant is only necessary for bald areas that have become utterly bald and shiny, as at this point, new hair cannot be grown.

There are two types of hair transplant operation: strip surgery is the cheaper and quicker option that involved a strip of hair from the back of the head being removed, and the hairs taken out of the strip and the following day being transplanted onto the top of the head, leaving a scar on the patient’s lower scalp. The newer type of transplant, Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, transplants hairs one by one from the back of the scalp to the top, and does not leave a scar. It could also be that Spacey is wearing a hair piece.
