It is estimated that the famous footballer, who has come to the agenda with his hair loss as well as his successes, has male pattern baldness. When comparing the pictures at the beginning of his football career with those of Liverpool and Stoke City, the spills are much clearer.

If you are curious about the famous footballer’s hair loss process and hair transplant adventure, read on for Xherdan Shaqiri’s amazing change.

Who is Xherdan Shaqiri?

Xherdan Shaqiri was born on October 10, 1991. Raised in Switzerland, the turning point in his career was his performance at Basel.

After Basel, he was part of the squads of Bayern Munich and Liverpool, which are among the biggest teams in Europe, and achieved significant success there.

He is one of the names behind Liverpool becoming Premier League champions 30 years later. He has won the biggest trophies in Europe, such as the Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup.

Xherdan Shaqiri is one of the names of male pattern baldness seen in the majority of men. Being constantly in front of the media and being closely followed ensures that the changes in her hair are noticed.

When almost 25% of men reach the age range when their hair becomes thinner and falls out, the hair loss in their hair has started to attract more attention. Due to the hair loss he has experienced, he has become an important name that was once on the agenda.


When Did Hair Loss Begin?

Male pattern baldness affects a very large proportion of men. Studies have shown that this problem is seen in 25% of men who reach the age of 21. Unfortunately, Xherdan Shaqiri was also included in the 25% bracket.

In the famous footballer, whose hair began to turn at a very early age, the retraction of the hairline and the openings in the temple area appeared. Spills in the hill area were limited.


Did He Really Have Hair Transplant?

Xherdan Shaqiri is one of the names who have hair transplantation. The famous name, who lost part of his hair at an early age, aimed to gain his old appearance with hair transplantation.

If he had chosen a quality clinical and experienced surgeon, the results could have been better. However, in this state, it seems to have been freed from the old openings.

Xherdan Shaqiri hair transplantation was performed with FUE technique. The grafts taken one by one from the nape and side areas of the patient were transplanted to the balding area and the baldness was completely eliminated.

What Kind Of Procedure Is Applied With Grafts During Hair Transplantation?

The use of the patient’s own hair in this technique ensures that the result is natural and harmonious.

For male pattern baldness, it is recommended that patients wait until at least 25 years of age and that hair transplantation is performed after the hair loss stops. Thus, the result that will emerge will be permanent. The permanence of the procedure results is also closely related to the doctor’s experience and the technique he has used.

Xherdan Shaqiri’s Hair Adventure

Looking back at Xherdan Shaqiri’s FC Basel days, his hairline has receded. Then, in the days of Bayern Munich, hair loss progressed further. In this period, the front hairline is almost like an M letter.

This is the first time fans have noticed that the famous name has had a hair transplant. It was claimed that the name, which stayed away from the fields with the claim that he had a 2-month calf problem, had hair transplantation during this period.

  • In 2019

The change in the famous footballer who returned to the fields after the calf problem he experienced was directly noticed. There are important marks on their temples and front hairline that indicate FUE hair transplantation.

From the outside, the fact that the hair was denser and healthier was the most important sign of hair transplantation. Fans have commented that he is using the injury time to get a hair transplant.


After Hair Transplantation

After hair transplantation, it was seen that the openings in the temple area were completely closed. The new hairline created is round, not straight. It is stated by experts that the treatment of temples during sowing is not carried out in the natural way.

Generally, after hair transplantation, definitive results appear after 12 months. In some, this period can extend up to 18 months. While the graft density in the temple area of the famous name is 30-35 / cm2, the density in the back section is 40-45 / cm2.

What kind of hair transplant did he prefer?

In the FUE technique, the hair taken from the nape and side areas that are not affected by the shedding is transplanted to balding or sparse areas. All transactions are done individually in this process. This method was also preferred for the hair transplantation of the famous footballer.


The FUE technique is performed under local anesthesia and the recovery time is shorter. In addition, the results of the procedure begin to be seen in a short period of time, such as only 3-4 months. For definitive results, it is necessary to wait 12 months.

At the end of the procedure, the natural hairline is recreated and the density of the hair is brought to its natural level. Hair transplantation performed by experienced surgeons with the FUE technique does not require a new procedure.

After FUE, the necessary care procedures should be carried out and the doctor’s instructions should be acted upon. With this application, a success rate of over 95% is achieved. The success rate of the procedures performed in our clinic is higher than 97%.


How Many Grafts Were Used in Hair Transplantation?

While hair loss in Xherdan Shaqiri was intense in the temple areas, it was relatively less in other areas. According to the examinations made through the photographs, it is estimated that between 1500 and 1700 grafts were used in hair transplantation.

For hair transplantation, it is sufficient to shave the hairline with the donor area. There is no obligation to shave the hair completely. But for this it should be remembered that a person should not experience excessive baldness.

Decline of the Hairline

Hairline regression occurs very slowly, and a large proportion of people do not care about this condition. However, this neglected situation leads to the permanent loss of hair.

The change in appearance due to hair loss can cause different psychological problems, especially the lack of self-confidence.

Those who lose their hair look older than they are. Accordingly, problems such as self-dislike, not being able to look in the mirror may become obsessive in people. Due to obsessions, the quality of life decreases markedly. This affects people negatively in every way.

In order not to experience these negativities, the regression of the hairline should not be neglected and the necessary measures should be taken in a timely manner.
