Julian McMahon is an Australian actor and model who is best known for his work on the TV series Home and Away, Charmed and Nip/Tuck, as well as the Fantastic Four movies. The roles he plays tend to be highly confident personalities and the star’s handsome, masculine features have won him many fans around the world.
Over the years, there has been much speculation about whether Julian has experienced hair loss problems. Eagle-eyed fans have noticed that his crowning glory has gone through some changes over the years. As he has aged, his hairline thinned considerably, but more recently, it is looking fuller again.
Could this be a case of life imitating art? Some readers will remember an episode of Nip/Tuck in which Julian’s character, plastic surgeon Christian Troy, has a hair transplant. The character wants to disguise his balding temples before appearing on a TV show with his business partner to promote their clinic. Unfortunately, he develops folliculitis and ends up staying off screen.
Has Julian had hair transplants too? According to Salvar Bjornsson, Vinci Hair Clinic CEO and a leading hair loss expert, yes. If you compare photos of the celebrity from just a few years ago to current images, you can see a real difference.
He had significant recession at his hairline, but a good donor area for the surgeon to extract grafts from. Salvar estimates that Julian’s hair transplant surgery would have totalled between 2,500 and 3,000 grafts. Today, Julian’s hair is looking as thick as it did in his younger years.
We have to hope that unlike Christian Troy, Julian did not have his hair transplant surgery just before a big event. Recovery after surgery is quick and depending on the transplant technique, stitches may not be necessary. Nevertheless, it wouldn’t be ideal to have treatment directly before a special occasion when you wanted to look your very best.
After-care is simple but it is important to allow time for healing, and for the grafts to grow. Vinci Hair Clinic provides their clients with full guidance on how to look after their hair transplants and are always available to answer any questions after treatment.
