What type of hair transplant has Elon Musk had?
Elon Musk is undeniably one of the most influential men of the decade. His advancements in technology, particularly with Tesla and SpaceX, risk-taking entrepreneurial adventures, and dedication to standing up for his businesses and beliefs have seen him become a prominent global figure. Having been in the spotlight in the world of technology and business for nearly 20 years, Elon Musk has changed a lot in terms of his looks, going from a fresh-faced go-getter to a seasoned suave veteran of multi-million dollar deals.
Elon Musk hairline
Part of his look that has changed noticeably is his hairline. During the 1990s, interviews with Musk showed that his hairline was thinning and receding. As a man in his late twenties at the time, this is not an uncommon occurrence, if an undesirable one, for this age group – almost one-third of all men will experience some hair loss by the age of 35. Naturally, being a forward-thinking man quick to embrace new technology, it seems that Musk took the decision to undergo treatments to reverse this process around the late 2000s.
While it’s possible that Musk used prescribed medications to help encourage his hair growth, the only way to achieve such dramatic and long-lasting results as he has, is through a hair transplant. Musk has been seen with a full and rich head of hair, erasing any previously thinning spots around the crown of his head, typically wearing it in a coiffed manner that suits his slick businessman exterior.
Choosing an FUE Hair Transplant
As a pioneer in new science and technology enterprises, Musk may have gone for the most modern form of hair transplant available – a follicular unit excision (FUE) transplant. With over a 98% success rate, quick surgery time and a short period of recovery that shows full results in 8-12 months, FUE hair transplants are the most popular form of hair transplant, and one of the most common cosmetic procedures for men.
FUE hair transplants work by removing hairs from areas of the head unaffected by thinning. These are removed individually, and planted into the affected areas of the hairline. Hair is usually taken from the back and base of the head, which is least likely to be affected by thinning. Once the new follicles are implanted, they heal up and embed naturally into the hairline, growing in thick and full to cover any affected areas and leaving the patient with an excellent result.
Musk’s thicker, fuller hairline has been attributed to helping him stand out as one of the most influential men of recent years, as his new hairline lends him an air of confidence and masculinity.
