How Kevin Costner transformed his hair and looks years younger

POSTED: 13 October 2020

Kevin Costner is one of the best known stars in Hollywood.

He is 65 now - an delicate age for a top actor who has always traded on his locks.

The Dancing With Wolves star had been suffering from male pattern baldness for several years.

His hair had been thinning noticeably at the front of his hairline and he was ageing noticeably.

But look at how his appearance has changed in the last few years.

Oscar winner Costner looks years younger and the front of his hairline has been almost completely replenished.

The most likely conclusion is that the star has benefitted from at least one hair transplant.

To get that fresh covering of hair, he may well have had multiple procedures.

He is to be congratulated on his choice of surgeon because his new hair hair looks great.

It has a nice natural look and he has restyled it in an attractive way.

Costner is one of several Hollywood stars who have remodelled their looks effectively by tackling their male pattern baldness.

He will almost certainly have had FUE (follicular unit extraction) procedures.

This is where hair is extracted from the back or sides of the scalp and replanted in the balding areas.

Around 80% of our consultant hair transplant patients at Crown Clinic chose FUE over the more traditional method of hair transplantation, FUT

(follicular unit transplantation).

With FUT the donor hair is obtained by surgically cutting a strip of skin from the back of the scalp and removing the grafts under a microscope.

FUT does not suit men who like to wear their hair short or shaved because the scarring can be seen if you do not chose some reasonable length on your hair.

Our consultant hair transplant surgeon Asim Shahmalak treats lots of high profile figures.

They know that they can prolong their careers by covering up their baldness.

Dr Shahmalak works with footballers keen to protect their image rights, which can be worth millions.

He also works with actors who don't want to be pigeon-holed into older roles. With a full head of hair, their range is far wider.

Dr Shahmalak's famous FUE patients include the Coronation Street star Jack P Shepherd, Homes Under the Hammer presenter Martin Roberts and the former footballer Didi Hamann.

His most famous FUT patient is the TV doctor Christian Jessen, who has had two FUT transplants at Crown Clinic.

Wherever Kevin Coster went for his procedure, it was money well spent. You are looking terrific, Kevin.
