Actor/presenter Paul Gerrard always viewed hair loss as an inevitable condition that many men have to deal with.
Highly confident, assured and ebullient, Paul’s motivation to restore his hair was sourced in a desire to sustain the versatility of acting roles in theatre, television and film, he enjoys.
In February, Paul underwent hair transplant surgery with renowned physician Dr Jennifer Martinick.
The transplant, which involved replanting 3000 grafts into Paul’s hairline and crown area, was performed at Martinick Hair Restoration’s Sydney clinic, Man Cave Sydney.
While he sought permanent hair restoration for professional reasons Paul says he never imagined the enormous personal boost that restoring his hair would bring.
“Versatility is really important for an actor and restoring my hair will give me a greater playing range.
“This was my motivation for having a hair transplant.
“I am aware that I look much younger when I wear a hat, but it hadn’t occurred to me just how much a new hairline would transform my appearance and how positively my friends, associates and hairdresser would respond. It has given me such a boost.”
As a regular television presenter Paul’s professional life demands an impeccable appearance, demanding more regular appointments with the hairdresser than most people.
Within two days after the transplant Paul attended his hair dresser in Sydney’s north shore for a trim.
“This was to even my hair length as the sides were long relative to the top of my head where the hair has been shaved for a transplant.
“My hairdresser commented on the neatness of the transplant, how fine the stitching was and the artistry of the work.
“I’ve since visited my hairdresser twice within the past three weeks for trims to keep the haircut balanced.
“With a little powder over the top of my transplanted area, I was fine for the bright lights of the television studios and the transplant looked great.”
