Former Wales star Robbie Savage has mocked former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan for undergoing a hair transplant operation in 2009. Commenting on Vaughan’s inclusion in the line up for the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing, Savage said, “I hope he can keep that squirrel on his head when he’s dancing.”
Vaughan admitted to undergoing a hair transplant operation in 2009, later becoming the public face of the clinic that carried out the procedure. Unlike Savage, who is still in possession of a full head of long hair, many men will share Vaughan’s discomfort in being criticised for seeking hair loss treatment.
Although Vaughan’s hair transplant operation appears to have been successful, the dramatic reappearance of hair made it clear that he had need surgical intervention - and it is this “miraculous” regrowth that has drawn the criticism of Robbie Savage.
For men who find that they are losing hair, or that their receding hairline is becoming more noticeable, it is essential to seek professional advice as soon as possible. By obtaining an accurate diagnosis, men will be able to define what is causing their balding and begin a tailored hair loss treatment plan to promote natural regrowth.
In our experience, the sooner a treatment plan is begun, the greater the chance of successful hair regrowth, and the earlier treatment begins, the less chance there is of the loss being noticed by other people. Any regrowth subsequent to treatment will be completely invisible to anyone other than the patient.
Although we cannot be sure of the underlying causes of Michael Vaughan’s thinning hair, we can state that by seeking treatment earlier he could well have avoided the need for surgery. The Belgravia Centre creates custom treatment plans tailored to the specific needs of each patient, many of which involve use of clinically proven, licensed medications and hair growth boosters to prevent further hair loss and promote natural regrowth.
Although Robbie Savage may still be in full possession of his hair, there always remains the chance that age and genetics may catch up with him, affecting his hairline. Nearly 40% of men the same age as Savage (38) will experience some form of hair loss a percentage which increases in line with age. At the age of 50, Savage stands a 50% chance of hair loss, at 60 that increases to 60% and so on, so there is always the chance that we may see a Robbie Savage with less hair in the not-too-distant future.
