John Cleese Admits Hair Transplant

Many famous people have opted for transplants recently

The latest person to admit to having had a hair transplant recently is none other than the famous comedian John Cleese. The star of the Monty Python series recently told Richard and Judy on their morning TV show that he had undergone a sophisticated and expensive hair transplant involving the removal of hair from the side of his head to be transplanted on the top of his scalp.

John Cleese who is now 69 years old, explained that he had thin strips of skin removed from the back of his head which were then divided into 800 individual hair follicles which were then inserted on the top of his head. John Cleese explained that he decided to have a transplant because he didn't like wearing wigs and he felt that his bald skull was oddly shaped and unattractive.

Many famous people have opted for transplants recently including the Prime Minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi, Paul Daniels, Elton John and more recently the cricketers Graham Gooch and Shane Warne. Hundreds of Hollywood actors such as Nicholas Cage, John Travolta and Mel Gibson have also been reported as having hair transplants to counter the effect of male pattern baldness.

Hair transplant surgery used to be fairly unsophisticated and it was always very obvious that somebody had made use of this type of surgery. Surgeons would insert hair plugs which made the head look like a hairbrush. Nowadays using sophisticated technology and precision instruments it is possible not only to spread the hair out evenly when it is transplanted but also to place it the right way so that it grows in the right direction.

A good hair transplant surgeon should be able to produce hair which is completely the same as normal hair growth. The best way to check up on the skill of a hair transplant surgeon is to ask to meet previous patients.

Fred how do you know he did not make a donation anyway? Surely he has a right to do what he likes! by admitting it, he is encouraging others who might be very upset that they are losing their hair.

Its not right to link hair loss to sex, its just not an issue.

It makes people insecure and is completely unrelated to how we perform!
