Snippet from the article:
From Wayne Rooney to James Nesbitt, the list of celebrity men who have resorted to hair transplants to revitalise their balding manes is a long one. As a result, inquiries about the treatment have shot up by 260 per cent over the last 12 months while 59 per cent of men say they would consider the treatment if they started losing their hair.
But as Michael Avola, 49, an unemployed former martial arts champion from Northampton knows only too well, the fiddly surgery doesn’t always go to plan. After he began losing his hair – and his confidence – at the age of 23, he turned to surgery in a bid to fix the problem.
‘They promised me there would be a really good result,’ he reveals. ‘They said the scarring would be invisible and that there would be full coverage at the front.’
Instead, after a bungling surgeon botched the operation, Mr Avola was left with a small amount of wiry regrowth and a front section without any hair on it at all. But six operations and Â£7,000 later, Mr Avola was left badly scarred and still bald.
The article mentions that Dr. Bessam Farjo did a 7th surgery on this man, though it doesn’t say who did the first six botched procedures.
