What type of hair transplant has Gordon Ramsay had?
Even famous celebrities aren’t exempt from hair loss and it’s common for them to opt for a FUE hair transplant. Genetic alopecia is extremely common and affects one third of men by the age of 30 and more than 80% of men aged 70 and over. Gordon Ramsay is one such person in the public eye who has restored their hairline with a transplant. But the question is, what type of hair transplant has Gordon Ramsay had? The answer could be follicular unit excision (FUE).
What happens during the process of FUE hair transplant surgery?
The FUE process is particularly attractive to many people who want a relatively less invasive hair transplant. There’s no need to be put under general anaesthesia as it is localised to the scalp, so you won’t feel a thing. Follicles from hair dense areas, like the nape of the neck, are extracted from the head and placed in areas that are patchier; FUE is great for restoring the hairline, which you can see from Gordon Ramsay’s fantastic looking results.
The whole process will take around eight hours and after some initial numbing injections you shouldn’t feel discomfort throughout the entire process. It can take a few months to start seeing some solid results as the follicle embeds itself; you might even experience some hair loss before your full head of hair comes through, but this is completely normal and will be worth it in the end.
What are the advantages of FUE hair transplant surgery?
It’s no wonder that the FUE process is such a popular procedure for celebrities like Gordon Ramsay, as it is an advanced procedure that delivers natural-looking results. The incisions made are very small and are unlikely to cause any visible FUE scarring. The follicle extraction site is also easy to hide until your hairline grows back in its final form. The procedure is ideal for people with a busy working schedule like Gordon as there is very little downtime and you won’t feel groggy after-effects of anaesthetic.
