Trends: 3 Top Male Athletes Who Have Had Hair Transplants

Written by Dr. Griffin

Recently, rapper Tyga admitted that his lush locks were the result of a successful hair transplant. However, Tyga isn’t the only famous male face who has undergone a hair transplant to restore his receding hairline, even if he is one of the few celebrities to admit undergoing the procedure. Whether famous or not, men and women can look forward to similar positive results by visiting Griffin Hair Restoration Center of Philadelphia.

Famous male athletes who have undergone hair transplants

In the past everyone teased basketball player LeBron James about his changing and fading hairline. One day it seemed filled in with a dark substance mimicking hair, while other days his bare scalp was hidden behind his famous headband. Recently, many reporters and fans have speculated that Lebron received a hair transplant since his receding hairline is now naturally filled in with new hair. Expert hair transplant surgeon Thomas D. Griffin, MD, who has more than 30 years of experience in dermatology and dermatopathology, is pleased to offer patients similar natural looking results. Dr. Griffin, who is based in Philadelphia, knows how to help battle hair loss and regrow hair in a completely natural looking way.

Lebron isn’t the only athlete with hair transplant rumors buzzing. The public has often speculated about the previously receding, yet now lushly filled hairlines of soccer star David Beckham and American football phenom Tom Brady. Though neither have come forward publicly regarding a hair transplant procedure, many experts have commented on how only a hair transplant could offer such natural looking results.

English professional footballer Wayne Rooney, who once suffered from baldness and now has a naturally thick hairline, has gone on record on Twitter to say he underwent a hair transplant. “Just to confirm to all my followers I have had a hair transplant,” wrote Rooney. “I was going bald at 25 why not. I’m delighted with the result.” While most celebrities and athletes do not admit they’ve had a hair transplant, Rooney’s “confession” normalizes this extremely effective and natural looking procedure.

You can still play sports after a hair transplant

Many athletes in the public eye have undergone hair transplants, which is obvious as they begin showing up to sporting events with thicker and healthy-looking hair. One of the advantages of having a hair transplant performed by expert Dr. Griffin is that it does not stop you from continuing your daily activities, including sports. Only the first week after the procedure we recommend refraining from heavy exercise. In general, however, you can keep playing most sports and hair implants should not affect your daily life or exercise routine in any way.

The latest hair transplant techniques feature much more natural-looking results and ensure speedier recovery times compared to previous methods such as the “strip surgery”. Dr. Griffin’s virtually painless hair restoration procedure can provide a boost in self-esteem and self-confidence which can have a positive impact on the playing field.

By visiting Thomas D. Griffin, MD., FAAD, FACP at Griffin Hair Restoration Center of Philadelphia, you can experience natural results without worrying about sweating off hair powders or temporary inks while playing sports. With Dr. Griffin you can take your thoughts off your balding scalp and get your head back in the game where it belongs.
