He maybe the world’s richest man, but all those riches could not save Elon Musk’s hair.
That is why the founder of the Tesla car company transformed his appearance with a hair transplant.
You can see the remarkable change in his appearance in the before and after pictures below.
His hair is clearly thinning at the front in the before picture on the left, taken in his 20s.
Fast forward more than 20 years and the 50-year-old Musk has a full head of hair in the after picture on the right.
With FUE, the donor hair is extracted individually from the back and sides of the scalp – keeping any scarring to a minimum.
Celebrity patients of our consultant hair transplant surgeon Dr Asim Shahmalak who have had FUE transplants include Jack P Shepherd from Coronation Street, the footballer Didi Hamann and the model Calum Best.
With FUT, all the donor hair is removed in one go by surgically cutting a strip of skin from the scalp. The donor grafts are then extracted from the strip by technicians and replanted in the balding areas of the scalp by Dr Shahmalak in the same way as FUE.
The TV doctor Christian Jessen has had two FUT transplants at Crown Clinic with Dr Shahmalak. We don’t recommend FUT for patients who like to wear their hair short or shaved because the scarring is more noticeable than FUE. If you grow your hair slightly longer, as Christian Jessen does, the scarring cannot be seen.
Whatever method he chose, Elon Musk is to be congratulated on his transplant – his new hair looks fantastic.
