Jimmy Carr’s appearance transformed by hair transplant

POSTED: 23 July 2020

The comedian Jimmy Carr has come out of lockdown with a completely new look after having a hair transplant.

Jimmy, 47, did not have severe male patient baldness like a lot of celebrities who seek hair transplantation.

However, he did not like the way his hair receded at the temples - this kind of hair loss can significantly age a man.

In Jimmy's own colourful words, his hairstyle made him look like 'a snooker-playing vampire.'

Jimmy joked that his hair had been "socially distanced from my forehead" and he wanted to change his look

Jimmy wanted his hair filling out at the temples so that he would have a straighter hairline.

You can see the difference in Jimmy's hair in the attached pictures. He really does look years younger and it is likely that the transplanted hair will grow back even more.

Jimmy said: "I had enough hair, it was just in the wrong place. I just  wanted to tweak it and make it better. It was a bit of redistribution."

Jimmy is one of several stars who have gone public and talked about the benefits of having a hair transplant.

Like most celebrities, he will almost certainly have had a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure where individual hairs are taken from the back and the side of the scalp and replanted on the top.

This new hair is permanent and should last Jimmy for the rest of his life. 

At Crown Clinic, our consultant surgeon Asim Shahmalak treats lots of high profile public figures including the Coronation Street star Jack P Shepherdformer footballer Didi HamannHomes Under The Hammer presenter Martin Roberts and ex-Gogglebox star Chris Butland-Steed. They all had FUE procedures at Crown Clinic.

Around 80% of Crown Clinic patients now choose FUE.

Dr Shahmalak has also performed two FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) procedures on the TV doctor Christian Jessen. With FUT, the donor hair is obtained by surgically removing a strip of skin from the back of the scalp. Around 20% of Crown Clinic patients choose this more traditional method of hair transplantation which is less labour intensive than FUT and therefore a little cheaper.
