Celebrities in the entertainment industry often face enormous pressure to remain looking as young as possible.

Wayne also discussed his hair transplant experience in his autobiography.
James Nesbitt Speaks About Hair Restoration
Irish actor, James Nesbitt wanted to improve his appearance. Male pattern baldness had caused noticeable baldness on top of his head. While he wanted to look younger, he also sought a high, age appropriate hairline. This created a very natural looking improvement which he claims was life changing.
Thrilled with his FUE results, he has even become a spokesperson for the clinic who had helped him restore his hair.
Elton John Conquers Baldness
Elton John became a pop music sensation while he was still in his twenties. However, despite being so young, he had noticeable amounts of hair loss. But back in the 1970s, hair transplant methods still produced pluggy looking results. And this type of surgery developed a rather negative stigma.
Fortunately, though, Elton was able to experience the benefits of modern hair restoration surgery which completely turned his image around by giving him a natural looking full head of hair.
He continues to be a relevant music icon who is admired by younger generations of fans.
AJ McLean Shares Hair Transplant Photos With Fans

He wanted to undergo a hair restoration surgery to help him reverse the effects of male pattern baldness. The procedure created a very natural looking improvement.

Bernardo de Paula Restores His Hairline and Crown
Bernardo de Paula co-stars on the television series, Shameless, with award winning actress, Emmy Rossum. Over time, his hair loss became increasingly noticeable. This included hairline recession and baldness in the crown. As an actor, physical appearances are important for career success and even longevity.
Bernardo decided to take action and undergo an FUE hair restoration procedure performed by Dr. U. The results were phenomenal and extremely natural in appearance. He has even been able to sport a more youthful looking hairstyle, spiking his hair and combing hit forward, instead of towards the back.
And like other celebrities, he has embraced an open attitude in terms of sharing his results.
Many stars in the entertainment industry remain more discrete about hair transplantation and cosmetic procedures in general. There are actually long lists of celebrities who are believed to have undergone hair surgery. But no one knows for sure.
However, modern surgery has made it possible for actors, singers, models and other well known media figures to actually make baldness and thinning a thing of the past without the need to use wigs and hair pieces which can be detrimental for their careers.
