Of course, hair transplant technology and techniques have improved immeasurably, too and what was impossible twenty or thirty years ago is now a reality. All it takes is the time and money to have your hair transformed.
Celebrity hair transplants are now affecting the way the general public feels about hair transplant surgery themselves. The better publicity and the obvious benefits are making ordinary people who have experienced hair loss decide to give it a go themselves.
Famous hair transplant recipients in the news

Mel Gibson, Kevin Costner, George Clooney, Johnny Depp and Jennifer Aniston have all been well publicised celeb. clients for successful hair transplant surgery, as well as sports players like Wayne Rooney and David Beckham.
