Actor James Nesbitt revealed a thicker-than-usual head of hair at a charity event in Manchester on Monday night. Refreshingly, he is being completely upfront about his transformation, and has confirmed via the Press Association that he had a second hair transplant.
Nesbitt, 45, has been losing his hair for several years and has spoken openly about the difficulties he faced dealing with the condition; ‘It’s ridiculous, but it’s horrible going bald. Anyone who says it isn’t is lying.’ Having tried several treatments over the years, Nesbitt has now taken the plunge with two hair transplants, after he became worried the hair loss was affecting his career.
Of making the decision to undertake a transplant Nesbitt commented: “(losing my hair) was practically an obsession. But also, I’m an actor, so I’m in the public eye a lot and I really felt that my hair loss could affect my career prospects.
“So, after many agonies and a great amount of thought – and believe me it’s something I didn’t take lightly – I took the decision (to have the transplants).”
It’s thought Nesbitt underwent Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), a relatively new, and virtually undetectable, form of hair transplant where individual strands are taken from a thicker patch of hair and planted into the balding areas, where they take root and regrow.
Nesbitt has since lauded the decision as life-changing – and his career certainly seems to have bounced back, with a role as dwarf Bolfur in the eagerly anticipated film The Hobbit.
