Wayne Rooney was spotted leaving a hair loss clinic on Harley Street in London having had a hair transplant. He bravely removed his cap and made his way home donning a new set of follicles where he once had no hair.

Rooney was either so proud of his new hair or so eager to stay one step ahead of the inevitable media barrage that he posted a picture of his new scalp on twitter and told his fans that his hair would grow over the following months. The procedure that the Man U striker underwent is known as follicular unit extraction and costs around £12,000.

It is a quite a gory process, which involves the removal of follicles from the back of the head and the replanting of them in the areas where hair has fallen out thence, a new head of hair is born maintaining the careers of pop stars, film actors and now, famous footballers everywhere.

This procedure has a high success rate and among the bogus hair loss treatment fads and herbal topical treatments, it makes a lot of practical sense but Propecia is the less invasive option for hair loss treatment and is known to cause some regrowth in most users.
