Wayne Rooney Is An Inspiration

POSTED: 30 May 2013

Wayne Rooney isn't just a magnificent footballer but an inspiration to thousands of men.

In being so open about his hair transplant two years ago, he inspired many men to come forward and seek treatment for their hair loss.

Many of those men would have continued to live in misery for years if it was not for Wayne's example.

He showed conclusively that a man having a hair transplant was no big deal - it's just a great and simple way of improving their appearance.

Wayne didn't hide away after the treatment - he openly tweeted a picture of himself.

Men struggling with baldness thought: "If it is okay for Wayne, it is okay for me, too."

Our bookings at the Crown Clinic surged by 25% after Wayne went public.

Interestingly, he received no negative taunts over the treatment.  We've all grown up a lot and respect people who want to improve their appearance.

Now Wayne's hair is again in the news.

Sadly the Manchester United and England star has continued to lose his natural hair.

So while the transplanted hair at the front of his scalp is still there and will be permanent for the rest of his life, he has two fresh bald patches further back on his scalp.

Our surgeon Asim Shahmalak was featured in a recent piece on Wayne's new hair loss on Mail Online. You can read more here:

Dr Shahmalak explained to the Mail that Wayne's new problems may have arisen because he had his first transplant too early - before his pattern of baldness had been estabilshed.

The good news for Wayne is that his problem can easily be remedied: he would need a second transplant and to start taking the drug Propecia. Propecia will stop further hair loss and Wayne won't fail any drug tests in taking it.

We wish Wayne the best of luck in whatever he decides to do.
