Silver-furred fox George Clooney, one of Hollywood’s most famous actors, may have reversed his hair loss and never had to deal with the daily agony of watching his hair fall apart in the shower or while combing.
Hair loss is common among men of all races, ages, and ethnicities, as male pattern baldness can strike men as early as their twenties or later in life, adding to the stress of daily life routine or when trying to manage a new family.
It happened to George Clooney, too, but George didn’t give it much thought before doing the opposite and restoring his hair. In the late 2000s, he took advantage of medical advancements in hair transplantation, and he continued his long career as an actor, screenwriter, and movie producer without pausing.
We can’t even say if George Clooney had a hair transplant today because his hairline density and structure aren’t up to par.
If you’re unfamiliar with hair transplants and how they’re typically performed, here’s a quick rundown:
In short, Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that involves removing hair follicles from one part of the body, known as the ‘donor site,’ and transplanting them to a bald or balding part of the body, known as the recipient site.’ The procedure is mostly used to treat male pattern baldness or even female. Patients who undergo hair transplantation regain their own hair permanently, as if they had never lost it.

- The first step of FUE hair transplant is local anesthesia
Apart from conventional needles that cause a lot of pain, the latest methods and techniques in the anesthesia world are used in the FUE technique A device that injects anesthesia into the scalp without feeling pain

- After extracting the follicles, the follicles are placed in a liquid called Ice Graft
This fluid maintains the follicle, nourishes it, and protects it from external factors

- After that, the doctor will start opening new channels in the balding area and transplanting the follicles using the DHI technique (Choi pens), which gives about 120 grafts per 1 square centimeter. This technique is considered one of the latest technologies in the field of hair transplantation.
