Calum Best: hair transplants have made me look five years younger

POSTED: 31 March 2015

Many of you may have seen recent articles about the Crown Clinic's client Calum Best.

Calum, 33, has written a book about his famous father, the late football legend George Best.

The book was serialised in the Daily Mail newspaper and told in harrowing detail how Calum struggled to help his father as he struggled with alcoholism.You can read more about it here:

It took a lot of bravey on Calum's part to share such tales of heartache and I am sure that the book will provide comfort to other families who have been left to cope with loved ones in the grip of this awful addiction.

Calum is going through a very successful phase of his career as a model and a televsion personality. He was a big hit on Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year and a day rarely goes by when you don't see a story about him.

Calum has always been very generous in acknowledging the role played by Crown Clinic 's surgeon Asim Shahmalak in helping him stay so young looking.

Calum has had three successful hair transplants under our surgeon. Each time, he chose to have the FUE (follicular unit extraction) method favoured by celebrities such as Wayne Rooney. This is where follicles are harvested individually and transplanted in the area where male pattern baldness is most evident - in Calum's case, around the temples.

Calum said: "'I've read research saying that baldness can make men look 10 years older. I would say keeping hold of my hair has made me look at least five years younger. The difference in my self-esteem is immeasurable.'
