Did Elon Musk Have a Hair Transplant?

Did Elon Musk have a hair transplant


Last Updated 2/27/2020

With more and more celebrities getting hair transplants, the public has gotten a glimpse at the resulting possibilities, leaving many individuals who have suffered hair loss and thinning with hope for a resolution. Clients are coming to our practice feeling inspired by the celebrity success in hair transplants. One celebrity, in particular, Elon Musk, has shown significant hair growth recently, leading the public to ask, “Did Elon Musk get a hair transplant?”

It makes sense that most celebrities and those who can afford hair transplant procedures have these procedures done unnoticed. We can pay our thanks to the incredible amount of research and the latest technology for the natural and attractive outcomes in hair transplantation. Celebrity hair transplantation is also a fairly minimally invasive procedure with little downtime. This allows people (and celebrities) to return to their daily lives with minimal interruption and noticeability. Hair transplantation is also the only permanent solution to hair loss, unlike other solutions such as medications. Without this research and high technology, hair transplantation would be an entirely different experience.

Elon Musk’s Hair Transplant


In short, yes! We believe Elon Musk did have a hair transplant. There is no other technique or treatment that could bring a Class III or IV (in Norwood), such as in Elon Musk’s case, back to a solid hairline that I have ever seen in my practice as a hair transplant surgeon. Here is the breakdown:

Elon Musk Before Hair Transplant

Before the Elon Musk underwent a hair transplant procedure, his hair appeared to be thinning and losing volume. These losses lead to a hairline that is not solid and does not shape the face of the individual. In general, hairline recession and/or a less defined hairline can lead individuals to feel less attractive and as though the aging process is showing.

Could medication have cured Elon’s hair loss?

It is unlikely that Eon’s hair transformation is due to medication. There are two medications often prescribed in order to resolve hair loss and thinning. However, I have known that these drugs are not quite capable of making a transformation as grand as this one. These drugs are more likely to be used to stop hair loss rather than to re-grow hair that has already been lost.

Therefore, in order to achieve a more youthful look, we believe Elon Musk must have sought out a hair transplant procedure. This restored the hairline to be fuller and far more defined. It also increased the density of the hair follicles resulting in a scalp with more hair.

Elon Musk After Hair Transplant

Overall, since his hair transplant, Elon Musk has a solid hairline, a dense scalp of hair, and no signs of hair loss, thinning, or balding. This resulted in him appearing to have a brighter-looking face that is more youthful.

Elon Musk is not the only celebrity who has underwent a hair transplant procedure. One of our very own celebrity professional baseball clients, Jose Canseco, has had a hair transplant procedure. He has got on board with many others to quit suffering from the frustrations of hair loss. It is wonderful to see celebrities also sharing their experiences and outcomes with the public to inspire and bring hope to others. It proves that hair transplants are an incredibly effective solution to hair loss, while also being fairly discrete and natural.
