Paddy Reilly is having a Hair Transplant

14 Jul 2017

The professional boxer, and star of Glasgow's first reality glamour series GLOW, visited DHI Scotland to stop his receding hairline.

“It’s the best thing I’ve ever done,” he said.



“I didn’t need a hair transplant but I wanted to change my hairline. Like a lot of guys I was a bit self conscious but DHI were really patient with me and gave great advice.

“Anyone who feels self conscious or nervous should get to DHI.”

Dad of one Paddy, who recently became single, hopes his new hair will be his crowning glory when the show broadcasts later this year.


George Kottaridis, clinic director at DHI Scotland, global hair restoration specialists who have clinics in Edinburgh and Glasgow, said: “We’ve been doing hair restoration for several different areas of the body for many years.


“We extract hair from the back of the head one by one with very small instruments – smaller than any other clinic around the world. Then we implant the donor hairs into the area where the patient wants to increase the density.


“It’s a pretty simple, yet sophisticated process performed under local anesthetic, and depending on the type of procedure and case it can take from two to six hours.”


Although there has to be a suitable and healthy area to harvest donation hair, success rates for the treatment are high, with George confidently stating after 200,000 procedures, treatment works in "literally every case”.
