Elon Musk rarely misses the news for a long time. If you haven’t bought Twitter, you’re launching rockets into space or bringing the latest electric cars to market. Then there’s the usual media turmoil about his latest date, or how he’s been able to make millions of dollars in the last 24 hours. But lately, the press has asked less often asked questions about Mr. Musk. Has he ever transplanted hair?
If you are a reasonably balanced individual, you will probably wonder “who cares”. Well, really anything before you start doing more important things in your life. But the fact that this story was reported in the media is interesting from another angle. For a while, forget a little about Elon Musk. Did he ask a flocking question? did not do it. The real question to be answered is why anyone-anyone-choosing to receive hair recovery treatment is considered a newsworthy story in 2022.
Tycoon and actress
The story of Elon Musk’s flocking stems from Twitter spats with actress Angela Belcamino, who allegedly had been dating. The fact that she picked up a topic that many see as a hostile tweet is important. Was she trying to embarrass the big guys in the business world? Does she find it embarrassing to plant hair? This is an important point. This is at the heart of why some people are still hesitant to consider hair transplant surgery.
There is no doubt that many people still experience some hesitation before planting hair. In part, this is due to fear of the unknown. The whole process of hair transplant surgery is still a mystery to the general public. And face it who likes to step into the undeveloped waters. This type of fear can be alleviated if the client can contact the clinic and discuss it with the staff and medical team performing the procedure.
More difficult to overcome are the psychological barriers that underpin the story of Elon Musk, which surrounds hair transplants. Some good news: the barrier is slowly collapsing due to an increase in the number of celebrities who have been transplanted and then openly talking about it.
Celebrity flocking story
Increasingly famous names from the world of sports, music and cinema have come up to talk about their decision to flock. For example, in November 2020, UFC World Heavyweight and PRIDE Middleweight GP Champion Maurício Milani Rua chose Vinci Hair Clinic for hair transplant surgery on the Hair Follicle Extraction Unit (FUE). FUE surgery moves hair follicles from the lateral and dorsal donor areas of the back of the head to areas with hair loss. Shogun Rua was happy just not being able to discuss his decision to undergo this type of surgery.
A few months later, Brazilian mixed martial arts Paul’Boracina’Costa revealed that he also chose FUE hair transplant surgery to improve the appearance of the receding hairline. The UFC fighter, who will be fighting Luke Rockhold at UFC 277 later this year, is proud of his new look and will be happy to talk to him if he has any questions.
And more …
Singer Wagner Fiusa Carillo, well known as “The X Factor Wagner,” is another celebrity who has published about his hair transplant surgery. His success in the popular television talent show has led to constant media appearances in entertainment programs and magazines. Good for his career, this frequent exposure emphasized to him the fact that his hair is thinning. He has undergone FUE flocking at the Vinci Hair Clinic and has never regretted it.
Other major stars like Billy Bob Thornton and Kevin Costner chose to go down the flocking route. In the UK and Ireland, actors Jude Law and James Nesbitt, as well as sports stars Wayne Rooney and Paul McGinley, spoke openly about their steps. This is definitely a good thing. It’s just that kind of coverage that encourages others to consider getting hair recovery treatment and make it just another health care procedure.
Hair thinning and hair loss vary from person to person. There are different reasons, different degrees of severity, and different treatment options that underlie hair loss. Not everyone is suitable for hair transplant surgery and may not be the best treatment in all cases.
