Has actor Jeremy Piven had a hair transplant?

The growing number celebrities who have gone under the knife to reverse the process of male pattern baldness has been increased according to a one of the world’s leading hair transplant surgeons who is adamant that American actor Jeremy Piven has undergone the procedure.

Dr Bessam Farjo boasts a celebrity client-list that includes Dragons’ Den multi-millionaire Duncan Bannatyne and operates The Farjo Medical Centre, performing the first ever live streaming of a hair transplant procedure last year when he operate on former Premier League and England footballer Michael Gray. Dr Farjo claims that photographs of Piven taken on a Hawaii beach in 2010 clearly show the results of having received such a cosmetic procedure.

In one of the photos, Piven is seen removing his cap to reveal a large scar running across the back of his head and what Dr Farjo explains is a characteristic of a ‘strip method’ hair transplant. He comments: “From the picture, I would say he has had around 3,000 grafts, costing up to £9,000.”

Piven is perhaps most memorable for his starring role as Ari Gold in the television series Entourage, which has earned him Golden Globe and Emmy Awards.  He can currently be seen in the Sunday night ITV drama series ‘Mr Selfridge’, portraying Harry Selfridge – the founder of the Selfridges department stores.

Viewers will see the good-looking 47 year-old sporting an impressively thick mane and Dr Farjo’s assertion about the actor’s strand-by-strand hair transplant, would appear to hold some weight. Back in the early to mid-1990s, Piven featured in several films as well as TV shows such as Seinfeld and Ellen, with a receding hairline that is drastically different from his look in the present day.

Of course, Piven is just the latest celebrity to opt for an expensive hair transplant procedure that can sometimes cost tens of thousands of pounds. In June 2011 Manchester United and England footballer Wayne Rooney caused a stir when he posted a picture onto his Twitter account showing his slightly bloodied and painful-looking head, following surgery at a London Harley Street clinic.

At the time, Rooney had been on the receiving end of jibes from teammates and was applauded by many for speaking about his transplant with a buoyant attitude saying: “Just 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” before later revealing more to his thousands of Twitter followers and added: “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” and “’I had it done in Harley street hair clinic London. Thanks to all the staff who looked after me.”

Setting patients back thousands of pounds for just one procedure of a potential many, hair transplants can only be afforded by a small minority of the millions of men around the world suffering with male pattern baldness.  In times of a crippling recession and austerity in Britain and many other countries, these expensive procedures are simply not a viable option for most.

For both men and women suffering from hair loss, Medical Specialists Pharmacy have a huge range of effective and much cheaper treatment options such as Propecia to combat male pattern baldness, Regaine, Alpecin caffeine shampoo, and for women: Florisene and Dianette– which can also be used for acne, hirsutism and contraceptive purposes. Visit the Men’s Health or Women’s Health area of the Medical Specialists website to find out more information on how to obtain these hair loss treatments.
