As the new Premier League season kicks off, and some of the nation’s best known faces take to the pitch once more, the tabloids have once again been focusing on one of their favourite off-pitch topics: Wayne Rooney’s hair transplant.
This time it was not a lack of hair that caught the paparazzi’s eyes, but rather the colour of it. During the first game of the season against West Bromwich Albion, in which the Manchester United striker opened his goal tally for the season, Rooney’s hair appeared to be receding less, but fans were surprised to see that it had gone grey in places.
Hair transplant woes
The 25 year-old footballer underwent a hair transplant operation in June of this year, which reportedly cost £30,000. This was to tackle the hair loss and receding hairline he had suffered from since his early twenties. The reason for the player’s hair loss is the genetically inherited condition Male Pattern Baldness.
Despite the high cost of the transplant, the results thus far have been far from favourable. Last month the tabloids reported that Rooney actually appeared to have lost more hair, after he was pictured playing a series of friendly games with Manchester United in America.
These most recent pictures have caused some to speculate that the hair transplant is a failure.
Was a hair transplant really the best choice for Rooney?
The high cost of hair transplants and the long duration of these side effects may be off-putting to many men experiencing Male Pattern Baldness. Wayne Rooney’s transplant was particularly expensive if it did indeed cost £30,000: usually costs range between £3,000 and £12,000, depending on the amount of hair to be transplanted.
So is there a more affordable and dependable way of treating Male Pattern Baldness? Our hair loss experts at The Belgravia Centre think so. We use a range of pharmaceutical and clinical treatments, and other hair growth boosters to develop a personalised approach to hair restoration. Most importantly, our methods do not require risky and expensive surgical methods.
Propecia and Minoxidil are two of the main pharmaceutical hair loss treatments we use. Both have been scientifically proven to be effective in not only preventing further hair loss due to Genetic Hair Loss, but also in promoting hair re-growth. Both treatments have also been licensed by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory agency (MHRA) in the UK and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US.
We use these treatments in conjunction with a wide range of supportive treatments, including laser combs and nutritional supplements. Take a look at some of the success stories on our website to see the results we regularly achieve. Best of all, you don’t need a footballer’s salary to afford our hair loss treatments.
