Exploring Dimitar Berbatov's Hair Transplant

March 8 , 2021

With his silky skills, Dimitar Berbatov was one of the most elegant footballers to grace the Premier League, and before he hung up his boots, he also made waves with his hair.

During spells at Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Fulham, the striker thrilled fans with his superb technical ability allied to his brilliant goalscoring feats.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest Bulgarian players of all time, he captained his country from 2006 to 2010, and became his nation's all-time leading goalscorer.

Dimitar Berbatov hair transplant before & after

Dimitar Berbatov announced his retirement from football in 2019 at the age of 38, but not before turning heads on the pitch once again by sporting an impressive full head of hair.

Where previously he had shown signs of baldness around his temples with a receding hairline, this was suddenly totally restored.

It appears he visited a hair transplant clinic for at least one treatment and most likely elected to have an FUE hair transplant (follicular unit extraction).

This involves follicular unit grafts being removed individually from the back and side of the scalp and then replanted in the thinning or balding areas.

It's a method that has the advantage of minimal scarring once the procedure is completed. Patients are usually left with tiny hair transplant scars less than a millimeter in diameter. These small scars are not noticeable once the hair has regrown past a grade 1 or 2.

FUE is particularly effective for patients who like to have their hair short or shaved - like Berbatov.

Take a look at our FUE before and after page for more examples of successful hair transplants conducted by The Treatment Rooms London.
