WARNING: Some of these pictures are gory AF
We all know that celebrities are defo not strangers to the whole plastic surgery thang. But tbh most of the time we assume it's women. And dammit, it's 2018 and men are living their best surgery life too.
In the past we've seen famous dudes speak about their nose jobs or botox but the rise in hair transplants has been about as fast as Chrissy Teigen memes appear after an award show.
BUT BEFORE YOU CHECK OUT THESE GUYS TAKE A LOOK AT THE REAL COST OF CELEB SURGERY...
1. Kyle Christie
Back in 2016, Geordie Shore lad Kyle admitted he had gone through a hair transplant and the pictures were gory AF. Then, in April of 2017, underwent a 12-hour beard transplant because he’s admitted he felt insecure about his ‘sparse’ scruff and wanted to accentuate the hair procedure he’d had the year before.
2. James Locke
TOWIE’s Locke rang in 2018 with a present to himself – hair. According to the star he spent £6k on the operation to hit back at trolls that said he looked like Hitler. He told The Sun: "They cut off my head in one picture, and replaced it with Hitler's. I thought that was a bit strong. This was when I was at the National TV Awards, and I had to have that Justin Bieber hairstyle, 'the flip' covering my face as I had just had my hairline done and it was still healing. The trolls just went for me. They destroy people, but luckily I'm thick skinned, and even Justin Bieber himself 'liked' my tweet."
3. Wayne Rooney
The footballer spent a mega £30k on hair plugs back in 2011, being one of the first celebs to come out and admit that he felt insecure about his hairline. He tweeted at the time: “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. 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.”
4. Calum Best
CBB’s Calum admitted that he has had three hair transplants, starting in his twenties and the most recent before his 2015 Celebrity Big Brother appearance. He said: "There is no doubt the three procedures have changed my life. No man wants to be bald when he is older. I have been losing my hair since my early 20s. Nature's plan was for me to have thin and patchy hair across the top of my scalp. But the great thing is, we don't have to follow nature's plan.”
5. George Sampson
In April of last year, the Britain’s Got Talent dancer announced had lost his hair from a combination of alopecia, genetics and spinning on his head during his dance moves. He admitted: “This is something I've considered having done for years, I have always been convincing myself I'm not worried or it's not a big deal but really it is. I am only 23. It's not only for my own confidence but also being in my line of work which is very image orientated and unfortunately I felt my hair (lack of) could affect my work."
6. Brian McFadden
The former Westlife star went under the knife in February so add some locks to his head. He admitted On Instagram: “The last few years my hair line has been thinning and receding due to my life style and the general stresses we go through in life. It's been really making me self-conscious and uncomfortable so I decided to do something about it."
7. Jake Quickenden
Former X Factor star Jake wanted to feel confident on his wedding day so decided to visit a surgeon in August 2017 about his hair, before he’d even proposed. Sure. He told the Loose Woman panel: “I didn’t want to walk down the aisle feeling less confident so one of the main reasons was so I could feel as confident as she can. A proposal will be happening, obviously I don’t want to give anything away.”
9. Jeremy McConnell
At the end of 2017, Jeremy went through beard and hair transplant while on a break from his community service, in Turkey. A source close to Jeremy told The Sun that he wanted to look his best to try and get back into modelling work in 2018.
