Once upon a time, some of these alpha males had their crowning glory in all its glory; they were the bold and the beautiful! Sadly, however, things changed!
Their crowning glory was not as glorious as it used to be, and soon they become the ‘bald’ and the beautiful!
Well, this is the usual case of hair today, gone tomorrow! In retrospect, as more and more men became prone to hair loss, hair transplant surgeries, on the other hand, became more rampant. We bring you a list of 7 celebrities who went for such expensive hair transplant surgeries to salvage their receding hairline.
1) Sourav Ganguly
The former captain of the Indian Cricket Team has been always known for his unkempt and messy hair. However, that did not deter Sourav to take matter into his hands when he first started developing an easily noticeable bald spot in the middle of his head in early 2000’s. He immediately turned to Advanced Hair Studios for a hair transplant procedure, which worked rather well for him, for we don’t seem to notice the patch anymore.
2) Aditya Pancholi
Aditya Pancholi, who was very much in demand in the ‘90s, suffered a setback when he started losing his locks. The actor admitted his dislike of using a wig, and therefore resorted to laser hair transplant surgery in Dubai, unabashedly! The result, as we can all see, is phenomenal. He has lost weight, gained a mop of hair and simultaneously our respect, too! And let’s face it – he has never looked so suave!
3) David Beckham
The former British footballer had been having hair problems for over a decade. But, he dealt with it quite well with his unusual hairstyles to cover up the dwindling volume of hair. His hairstyles have included cornrows, faux-hawk and buzz crew cuts until he got a really unusual but brilliant idea. He got his singer-model wife, Victoria Beckham’s hair woven on his scalp! After all, marriage is all about being supportive starting from the ‘hair’-root level.
4) Shane Warne
The ever boisterous, wily spinner, Shane Warne’s hair loss has always been public, and so have been several hair transplants. Compare the Shane Warne from the time of his retirement from international cricket, and the one you saw in the recent Indian Premiere League. A full head of blond, wispy spikes is definitely a breath of fresh ‘hair’ for Warne!

There was a time last year when Govinda was an absentee on the silver screen and was hibernating in his real life, too. This was because he did not want his mop of fresh hair to get damaged as he had undergone a hair transplant surgery after taking the expert advice of Salman Khan – who himself has had this transplant. This only goes to prove that even older guys can achieve good results!
6) Gordon Ramsay
Displaying a not so successful attempt at hair transplant, this celebrity chef suffered what appeared to be an allergic reaction to the anesthetic used in his procedure. All this after consulting the guru of hair transplant – Dr Antonio Armani. Guess it’s safe to say that ‘Karma’ always comes back and bites you in the a**.
7) Abhijeet Bhattacharya
The famed Bollywood singer Abhijeet Bhatacharya too could not help taking the advantage of this scientific progress to treat his baldness. He also underwent laser surgery at the same hospital where Salman Khan was treated – ILHT Dubai. However, we don’t see a major difference in the singer’s look. Sadly, no one really cares!
With hair loss transplant procedures becoming so common and fuss-free, there’s no surprise that celebrities are increasingly and openly resorting to these procedures. Well, it’s any day better than accepting baldness as the way of life.
