N.E. Patriot Wes Welker Gets a Hair Transplant

While it is usually news of Tom Brady's hair that captures the attention of football fans, this week, it was fellow New England Patriot Wes Welker who has people talking. 

The 31-year-old wide receiver recently revealed that he underwent a hair transplant after noticing his hair was starting to thin. 

He is apparently happy with the results because he has decided to appear in radio, TV and print ads with his surgeon, Dr. Robert Leonard, starting in the fall to talk about what the procedure was like and to raise awareness about hair loss. I'm glad to see that Welker had a good experience and that he has chosen to share it with the thousands of men suffering from hair loss! Raising awareness on the new technology available for hair transplant, such as the less-invasive NeoGraft FUE, is important, and having a celebrity endorsement such as his will no doubt encourage other men to seek treatment! 

The NeoGraft FUE transplant has become a popular procedure among athletes as it avoids them having stitches in their donor area and calls for minimal recovery, usually three days, so it doesn't keep them out of the gym or off the field.
