Joe Buck Hair Transplant Revealed – See the Story with Dr. Mohebi
Joe Buck is an acclaimed sportscaster known for his work as the lead announcer for both baseball and football for Fox Sports. The 52-year-old is also well-known for the changes in his hairline thanks to multiple hair transplants over the years. While many patients only have one hair transplant surgery to get the results they desire, Joe has undergone multiple procedures in the past including one that impacted his ability to speak. Joe Buck recently made the decision to undergo another hair transplant using the services of Dr. Mohebi and our Los Angeles hair transplant team.
Our staff has put together a behind the scenes video spotlighting Joe Buck’s latest procedure. Dr. Mohebi also explains why older hair transplant techniques, such as the ones Joe had in the past, led to complications with patients and why they are not used by medical professionals anymore.
This informative video takes patients inside our Los Angeles surgical center for a look at how Joe’s hair transplant surgery is performed. The patient is also a big part of the video as Joe shares his thoughts about the surgery before, during and after the procedure:
FUE Hair Transplant – How it Works
A hair transplant is essentially what the phrase says as donor hair, taken from another area on the body of the patient, is moved/transplanted into the balding area of the scalp. The surgery works to rejuvenate the hairline of the patient and provide a fuller and thicker appearance to the hair on the scalp.
The most popular hair transplant technique currently performed by surgeons across the country is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). In this hair restoration procedure, the hair grafts are individually harvested from the donor area of the body. FYI: The donor area is usually located on the back and sides of the scalp as the hair located in this area is resistant to balding.
The extracted hair grafts are removed from the donor area and placed in the balding area of the scalp. Because this hair transplant method removes the hair grafts on an individual basis, the procedure does not leave a linear scar on the scalp so it is not obvious to others that the patient had a hair transplant.
Celebrity Hair Transplant – Is it Right for You?
Patients that want to have a hair transplant, while keeping this fact anonymous, should consider having Celebrity Hair Transplant™ by Dr. Parsa Mohebi. This outpatient hair restoration surgery requires minimal downtime on the part of the patient and includes little to no detectability after the surgery.
It is a non-shaven FUE hair transplant procedure that allows patients to enter the hair transplant process with long hair. In addition, most patients will not need any trimming or shaving of the hair so they can wear the same hairstyle before and after the procedure. Please note this hair transplant procedure is more labor intensive than other hair restoration techniques so the total amount of hair grafts that can be transplanted is more limited in number.
Joe Buck and Hair Transplants
When it comes to having a hair transplant, Joe Buck is not afraid to admit he had a procedure. In fact, he recently discussed his latest hair restoration procedure on an episode of his popular podcast with Oliver Hudson, “Daddy Issues” As seen below, Joe shares the news with Oliver starting at the 11:20 mark:
This was not the only time Joe addressed hair loss, and hair transplant surgery, on his podcast. Just this week, the latest episode of the show featured our very own Dr. Parsa Mohebi as the special guest! The episode is available now and can be found on most major platforms where the public listens to podcasts including Spotify, Stitcher and Apple Podcasts as well as the website of the show.
Here is a sample of the conversation this week between Joe Buck, Oliver Hudson and Dr. Mohebi:
Dr. Mohebi joins the conversation at the 12:44 mark and instantly starts taking questions from the curious and engaging hosts of the show. It is interesting to watch the conversation progress as even Oliver Hudson, a man who seems to have a healthy and full head of hair, has the doctor take a look at his hairline to see if he might need medical help in the future.
The chat with Dr. Mohebi touches on:
- The self-image of a person before, and after, a hair transplant
- The changes in hair restoration technology over the years
- Other common questions many people want to ask a hair transplant but have not had the opportunity to ask them in the past
The fact that Joe Buck, a famous and successful broadcaster, had a hair transplant shows that hair loss can impact anyone regardless of their age, profession or status in life.
