Twitter provides the perfect platform for soccer stars to keep their fans informed of their every move. After Wayne Rooney took to Twitter to promote […]

Research, Don’t Rush!

Posted on

I received an email this week from a man who enquired from us about having a hair transplant a little over a year ago. The young man in question came in with an uneven and slightly receding hairline. He was a potential candidate for surgery but, as with all our patients, we advised him to […]

Propecia Side Effects

Posted on

It’s not surprising to read the latest headlines damning the drug on its harsh side effects. One minute we’re told that aspirin causes cancer, the next it helps to prevent it – it’s hard to know what to believe! A recent article in a men’s health publication condemned the use of the hair loss drug […]

Wayne’s Hair Is Beginning To Wear Thin

Posted on

Wayne Rooney has been in the headlines once again recently, not because of his terrific footwork, but because of his hair transplant.

This week I headed down to the BAAPS conference in Birmingham along with a patient who very kindly agreed to accompany me as a case study for the day.

Posted on

The recent criticism surrounding celebrity hair transplants has brought up a few questions and I’d like to take the opportunity to set the record straight. Some of the media has a tendency to sensationalise stories to ‘make’ news, but this could be detrimental to anyone considering surgery. Firstly I wanted to talk about Jason Gardiner. […]

Is Katie Price Tearing Her Hair Out? Probably!

Posted on

Katie Price is not the first female celebrity who is said to have suffered from hair loss. Less than a year ago, photographs emerged of Naomi Campbell showing visible bald spots. Two very different women, one cause of hair loss – traction alopecia! This problem is something I’ve commented on many times before. But for […]

Hair Transplants Are On Top!

Posted on

A recent article to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Esquire magazine named the 20 men who’ll most shape and influence the next 20 years and, rather flatteringly, I made the shortlist! It’s a huge honour to be placed alongside the likes of Prince Charles but the best part of it all, is that it really […]

Luscious Locks? They’re More Than The Job’s Worth

Posted on

I came across an article recently in The Sun, revealing that men would rather lose their jobs than their hair. The results came from a poll conducted by the Institute of Trichologists and claimed that Welshmen are the biggest worriers when it comes to hair loss. There’s no doubt that, over the past few weeks, […]
