Hair Restoration Blackrock (HRBR) can confirm that Louis Walsh was treated by Dr Maurice Collins. Dr Maurice Collins is founder and Medical Director of HRBR.
Dr Collins commented today – “Louis Walsh has decided to let it be known to the public that he has had a hair restoration procedure, carried out here at Hair Restoration Blackrock. Like James Nesbitt he has spoken about his hair surgery to try and encourage other men who have hair loss issues to seek proper advice regarding their concerns.
When Wayne Rooney made it known that he had hair transplant surgery carried out in the summer of this year, he did a huge amount to remove the stigma that was associated with hair loss and hair restoration surgery.
The general public frequently interpret hair transplantation as a cosmetic ‘vanity’ procedure. Nothing can be further from the truth as it brings about an improvement in self-esteem and self confidence, and also an inner contentment. To give you an idea of the extensiveness of hair loss, a few stats: 30% of men at 30 are affected, 40% at 40 and 50% at 50.
We would like to congratulate Louis Walsh on his ongoing success with the X Factor.”
