Former football star David Platt has hair transplant
Former England captain David Platt has gone under the knife for a hair transplant as he was beginning to notice his thinning hair during his work as a television pundit.
After spells as a striker at Juventus, Aston Villa and Arsenal he has seen himself regularly in front of the cameras as a football pundit and it was here he noticed his hair begin to recede at the front.
As part of the process, Platt, who is currently manager of FC Pune City in the Indian Super League had around 2,500 grafts of hair transplanted from the back of his head to the front of his scalp by a robot with him commenting on the procedure by saying:
‘I admit that I was more than a little nervous about having a robot perform surgery on me, but Dr Farjo and his team looked after me exceptionally well from start to finish and I’m really impressed with the final results. Having the robot working on my head was nowhere near as strange as I thought it would be once I had become used to it.’
‘I’ve struggled with male pattern hair loss for many years, and eventually got to a point where I decided it was time to address it, I’d seen the results of other public figures’ transplants and I thought, why not? Being on television meant that my hair – or lack of it – was very visible.’
Platt will be joining others from the football world who have had hair transplants, with Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney and former Liverpool ace Didi Hamann also going under the knife for their receding hairlines.
