Soccer superstar balder Rooney has just announced on twitter that he has undergone hair transplant surgery.
@WaynerooneyJust to confirm to all my followers I have had a hair transplant. I was going bald at 25 why not. I'm delighted with the result.
It's still a bit bruised and swollen when it dies down u will be first to see it. Anyone recommend any good hair gel. Haha
I had it done in Harley street hair clinic London. Thanks to all the staff who looked after me.
I am a bit surprised by this, as I didn't think Rooney would make a good candidate for transplant surgery. He is practically a norwood 4 at the young age of 25, which usually means the balding is aggressive and will continue. Although no one can predict the future, I would hazard a guess that he would have reached a norwood 6 by the time he was 40. Various sources claimed Rooney was taking medication such as propecia too, which have unfortunately for him not seemed to have worked.
This means that eventually, his baldness will catch up with his transplant, leaving gaps of hair and a very odd looking result. Future operations will be necessary to counter this, which should not be a problem financially for the millionaire Rooney.
But he will eventually run out of donor hair, no matter how much money he has. I can only hope Rooney was made aware of this before undergoing the procedure, and I would question the ethics of anywhere that didn't make this clear to him.
New Update : Here's the first picture of his new hairline. It is still healing and will take several months to grow back properly.
Norwood Rating : his new results have yet to be seen, but he will be hoping to have gone from a 4a to a 2.
