David Beckham turns into the ‘Invisible Man’ at 39 - according to a Crown Clinic survey

POSTED: 15 July 2014

You may have seen lots of coverage for Crown Clinic  in the media in the last week.

Our new survey was  covered by Mail Online, the Sun, Daily Express, The Times and the Daily Star. You can read the Mail Online piece here:


The polling showed that men stop being seen as sex objects by younger women at 39 - the same age as David Beckham.

They begin turning into 'The Invisible Man' from the end of their 30s onwards - and are viewed more as father figures than sex symbols.

Our surgeon Asim Shahmalak explained: "Turning 40 is key turning point and it is the most popular age for men to seek a hair transplant.

"You only have to look at Robbie Williams to see how true that is. He turned 40 in February and admitted having a transplant to fill out his temples where he had started to lose his hair. He clearly didn't want to become 'The Invisible Man.'

"He realised that a hair transplant is the one simple cosmetic procedure that men can have to improve their appearance. They are not interested in liposuction or facelifts - but they do desperately want to keep hold of their hair.”

 Five signs that you have turned into The Invisible Man 1 Women no longer eye you up in a bar 2 Greying hair 3 Double chin 4 Thinning hair 5 Bad teeth
