While only a few have admitted to it, there are loads of celebs who once spouted odd and lonely hairs and today have full heads of luscious locks, leading us to believe they’ve almost certainly undergone surgical hair transplants. Photos of John Travolta taken in 2011 versus images of him taken in 2014, for example, show a dramatic improvement in terms of hair growth and a completely reversed receding hairline. Others like Jude Law, James Nesbitt, Matthew McConaughey, Billy Bob Thornton, Kevin Costner, Tom Hanks, Wayne Rooney, Mel Gibson, Nicolas Cage, Shane Warne and even former Proteas batsman Jacques Kallis, have also gone from practically bald to famously fabulous. Dr Larry Gershowitz is South Africa’s most prominent expert in hair transplants, having specialised in the medical field of hair transplantation for almost 20 years, 12 of which have been spent at a leading hair clinic in South Africa. His perfectionism, artistic expertise and innovative techniques place him on the forefront of medical hair restoration and transplantation. Under his leadership, Medhair has become a trusted name in the field, and earned its position amongst the most renowned surgical hair restoration clinics in the world.
