Elon Musk is widely considered to be one of the greatest minds of modern times. He has made a huge impact with his businesses and is constantly striving to invent ways to change the world and humanity. Though his creative skills have led to him being listed as the 54th richest person in the world (Forbes, February 2018) the 47-year-old has not managed to avoid a problem that troubles many other men: male pattern baldness.
Elon Musk’s Hair Loss
Photos published in the press throughout Musk’s career show his changing head of hair. In 2002, when he sold the Paypal company, he was already showing typical signs of male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). His hair was thinning at the front of the scalp with the extent of loss putting him at stage 3 or 4 on the Norwood Scale, a chart which provides a visual guide to male hair loss. Fast-forward to 2018 and Musk’s hair appears to have grown back. This has led to many people speculating as to whether the Tesla CEO has had hair restoration work done.
Did Elon Musk Have Hair Transplant Surgery?
Since androgenetic alopecia causes progressive and permanent hair loss, it would be expected that Musk would now be at at least a stage 5 or 6 on the Norwood Scale. The fact that he is not strongly suggests that the entrepreneur has indeed undergone hair loss treatment. The experts at Vinci Hair Clinic say that the transformation in the tech guru’s hairline looks to be the result of hair transplant surgery. It is likely that Musk had a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure as it is minimally invasive and requires little downtime for recovery. Vinci’s specialists say that Musk may also have opted to use the hair growth medications minoxidil or finasteride. They are the only two medicines approved by the FDA to treat male pattern baldness and can improve on the overall results of a hair transplant surgery.
