Age 18
Treatment(s) Hair Transplant

My bald McDonald's arches are filling in with new hair, and it’s all thanks to Bella Vou!

What motivated you to consider Hair Transplant?

Growing up Essex where everyone's trying to look their best, made me really aware of going bald. Since The Only Way Is Essex came onto our TV screens, this has been an even bigger issue for young men like myself.

My mates would say they didn't notice my hair, but I hated it. It affected my confidence. Chatting to people, especially to girls, I'd feel like the old-looking bald guy. I'd think, “I can't have my hair cut like that, like my mates," because I had a high hairline, which looked like the McDonald's M!”.

On windy days I'd wear hats to keep my hair down and I would regularly brush my hair to cover the bald spots so it didn't look so bad.

What was your experience, in surgery?

The operation took four and a half hours. It didn't hurt. In fact, it was quite boring. I had strips of skin, with 2000 follicles attached, removed from the back of my head, which left a small scar. These strips were then transplanted across the top of my head by a team of six clinicians.

Has it been worth it?

Since my hair transplant in March, I already have more confidence. Since having it done, my bald McDonalds arches are filling in with new hair, and it’s all thanks to Bella Vou and their amazing team of staff.
