Elon Musk Hair Transplant

Elon Musk Hair Transplant


Elon Musk hair transplant has become one of the most researched topics in the hair transplant category in recent years. US billionaire businessman Elon Musk's hair was very sparse when he founded the PayPal company in 2000.

The genius man of our time, Elon Musk looks charming with his bright eyes, confident appearance, and attractive full hair. However, he didn't always look great as he is today. When we looked at his old photos, he had a receding hairline on his head and thinning hair.

When did Elon Musk get his first hair transplant?

Elon Musk had his first hair transplant in 2003 when he was 32 years old. Before Elon's first hair transplant, Norwood 4- Norwood 5 hair loss was present. It is healthier to recommend a two-stage operation to patients with this degree of hair loss. When the image that emerges after this operation is examined, we can see that the transferred number is not very high and the density is kept low.

Which Hair Transplant Method did Elon Musk Prefer?

While we may never know exactly how many sessions of hair transplant Elon Musk had, we are sure that he had at least one FUT session. Although there is a clear FUT trace in some of his photographs, this trace does not attract much attention in his recent photographs. This also makes us think that Elon had a micro-pigmentation procedure.

Most likely, FUE was applied in the first session of Elon Musk's hair transplantation, in which less intensive transplantation was performed, and then FUT was applied to preserve the remaining density in the donor area.Elon Musk Hair Transplant Before After

Elon Musk Hair Transplant Procedure

As we mentioned above, although the method used for Elon Musk's hair transplant is not known exactly, it is estimated that he preferred the FUE method in his second hair transplantation. FUE hair transplantation method is performed under local anesthesia in the polyclinic and takes between six and eight hours.


FUE hair transplantation consists of quite a lot of grafts. The donor area and grafts are located in the neck and temples. The hair at this point has the feature of never falling out, even if it is transplanted to another part of the skull. As a general rule, the head is completely shaved before the follicular units are collected.


A Psychological Perspective of Full Hair


Hair is always a critical appearance factor for both men and women. Depending on whether the hair is thicker or less frequent, it also affects the sense of confidence. Today, having strong and healthy hair is considered one of the main ways to attract the attention of the opposite sex. Therefore, hair loss can lead to loss of self-confidence as well as other psychological problems. With the technical and technological developments in microsurgical instruments in the last decade, natural-looking hair transplantation is now possible.

Considerations After Elon Musk Hair Transplantation

The effects of Elon Musk hair transplantation have become visible in a short time. Mild pain and swelling on the forehead are common in the days following hair transplantation. To avoid this, you will be given appropriate treatment. For the first two nights, it is best to keep your head slightly elevated with pillows to prevent forehead swelling and rub the grafted area against the headgear. The bandage placed on the donor area is removed the day after the operation.
