COMB OVERS RETURN: Soap stalwart Chris Bisson reveals he’s had a hair transplant over fears his balding would ruin his career
12th June 2020
He is one of the best-known faces on British telly after more than two decades in Coronation Street and Emmerdale. Chris explains: “You are cast older when you start losing hair. It reduces the amount of parts you can play”.
The Manchester-born actor confided in others who had undergone similar procedures before booking into the city’s Farjo Hair Institute. He says the results have made life easier both on and off screen. Other high-profile patients of the Farjo Hair Institute include Cold Feet actor John Thomson, Coronation Street’s Alan Halsall and England football legend David Platt.
Explaining the new procedure, transplant expert Dr Bessam Farjo said: “The two surgeries with Chris involved 2,903 grafts and 6,400 hairs, and for the second one we also added a treatment called platelet-rich plasma.
