After leaving Victoria Beckham’s 40thbirthday party in 2014, telltale signs that Gordon Ramsay’s hair transplant showed when he was spotted with a fresh new hairstyle. The celebrity chef’s hair – which was a bizarre fringe and half-shaved style – was reportedly his second hair transplant.
Gordon Ramsay’s First Hair Transplant
Back in April 2011, Ramsay was spotted leaving a hair transplant clinic in Los Angeles. He was wearing a black surgical-style cap on his swathed head.
He was also seen sporting a very puffy face which suggested that he experienced an allergic reaction to his first hair transplant. Patients can experience some swelling which can work itself from the head to the bottom of the face.
However, Ramsay denied the claim, blaming that he had some allergic reaction to horses and a run-in with illegal fishermen during the filming of illegal shark fin fisherman for a TV show.
Ramsay said, “I had petrol doused, gasoline poured all over my hair and I had a horrific infection. Then I was in Napa for Christmas two weeks after the shoot and went riding with the kids, and had a horrendous allergic reaction to the horses, combined with the problems I had with my scalp, so it was just a hair nightmare.”
Gordon Ramsay’s Second Hair Transplant
Renowned hair loss expert, Dr. Shahmalak of Embarrassing Bodies said that he’s certain that the celebrity chef had a second hair transplant. “This time, he has had an FUE procedure similar to Wayne Rooney’s two hair transplants.”
Sporting that new ‘do on Posh Spice’s birthday in 2014, the back of Ramsay’s hair was shaved and visible red pin pricks were seen at the bottom of his hairline – which a lot of professionals say is a key sign of having undergone a hair transplant surgery.
The look is so different from his usual spiked blonde hairstyle. That time, Gordon Ramsay even used a product to camouflage the shaved patches of what’s under it.
Under the FUE, the head is shaved and then individual follicles are harvested from an area of the scalp where the hair is abundant – normally the back or the side of the head.
He added, “In Gordon Ramsay’s case, the hair has been harvested from the back of the head – which is why you can see all the red pin pricks where the follicles have been removed.”
“There are two to three individual hairs in each follicle and these and then replanted by the surgeon into the area of the head where the patient is showing signs of male pattern baldness,” he continued, “It is not clear where the transplanted hair has been placed in Ramsay’s case. The long fringe combed forward may be covering the recipient area where he has had worked performed.
Dr. Shahmalak said Ramsay will have bolstered a receding hairline that he may have had work on his crown as well. Luckily for our favorite chef, the hair that was transplanted on his head is permanent and will stay in place for the rest of his life.
Gordon Ramsay’s Hair Transplant Cost
It reportedly costed him around $25,000 for a hair transplant in the Alvi Armani hair transplant clinic in Beverly Hills for the FUE treatment (Follicular Unit Extraction).
Has Gordon Ramsay Had Plastic Surgery?
The “Hell’s Kitchen” star admitted that he had work done to improve his appearance for an American audience, admitting, “Simon Cowell suggested that now I’m a success in America, I should do something. So I had a filler put under the deep crevices. It hurt.”
He took his advice to freshen up his look with some surgical assistance, oozing confidence with his flawless complexion as he posed for several red carpet events with a slight hint of smile.
Gordon Ramsay confessed, “I’ve got four children, and they’d say; ‘Dad, why have you got so many wrinkles on your face when Clementine’s daddy has no wrinkles?’ The lines were pretty horrific, like Scarface, and I was never embarrassed by it but my children helped me become more paranoid about it.
