For Immediate Release: Friday 16th May


The Motherwell striker believes tackling his hair loss head on is the way forward and a hair transplant at Scotland’s leading FUE clinic has allowed him to achieve his goal.

The Scottish football legend underwent an FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant at The Glasgow Clinic. The only clinic in Scotland with a manual FUE based specialist. Surgeon, Dr Harald Eberson implanted around 2,000 grafts on Thursday 15th May, giving Motherwell hero McFadden a new look for the new season ahead.

The 31-year-old has been entertaining fans at Fir Park this season having become a crowd favourite with Everton and Birmingham City after initially hitting top form with Motherwell. But he shot to prominence with that wonder goal in Paris that inspired Scotland to a 1-0 victory over France in 2007. Perhaps a new look for the former Scotland poster boy will help sign a new contract over the summer.

Dr Harald Eberson

The Glasgow Clinic’s leading resident FUE surgeon, Dr Harald Eberson, carried out James’ procedure. He said: “We’re delighted to be able to accommodate James here at our surgery and thoroughly enjoyed looking after him.

“We implanted around 2,000 grafts over the course of the day and achieved a great look that we know James is very happy with. It will take at least four to six months before we start to see a real difference to his hair and certainly a year before he can really appreciate the benefits.

“We’re hoping to see James model his new hair transplant on the pitch whether that be at Motherwell, Scotland or elsewhere, we wish him all the best for the future.”

Fraser Christensen

The Glasgow Clinic Director, said: “We’re very happy that James came to us for his hair transplant. He’s a well-known and well-liked character across Scottish and English football leagues and it’s been a real pleasure to have him here at our clinic.

“Hair loss isn’t easy for a lot of people to deal with, both male and female. It’s definitely becoming more talked about and less of an issue. Hair transplants are now a more sought after and affordable solution to people, especially when they realise what is actually involved.

“Here at the Glasgow Clinic we perform advanced FUE surgery a technique that’s revolutionary across the field and has to be performed by an expert surgeon. We take our procedures very seriously and are keen to educate those seeking a solution as to the best way forward.

“Having already set the bench mark with FUE surgery in terms of results and achievements, patients no longer have to travel abroad for this specialist surgery when we have one of Europe’s most talented surgeons supported by an extremely experienced team based here in Scotland.”

James McFadden

Husband and father-of-four, James is enjoying an illustrious football career, surely hair loss would be the least of his concerns. He said: “My hair was starting to fall out and I seen that other people had had it done and it looked quite good. I told the boys in the team on Sunday that I was getting it done and they were fine about it. I think these things are out in the open now and more accepted.

“You get stick and a bit of banter for having no hair so you might as well get stick for having some. It’s the same with anything you just take it. It doesn’t bother me at all. I wouldn’t hide it, not that you can hide it but it really just doesn’t bother me.

“My wife is happy with whatever I want to do. This is just for me though. I liked it when I had hair and I’d like to have it again. I’m not vain and anybody that knows me will tell you that. I just want to have my hair again.

“I have the same hairline as my dad, although he’s probably got a wee bit more than me. My brother has loads of hair and my mum’s dad has plenty hair too. So it’s just my dad and I.

“I found the Glasgow Clinic online. A lot of people go down to London, my pal did that. But I thought why not go to somewhere on my doorstep. I had a meeting with Fraser at the clinic with my wife and we had a good long chat about things.

“After this I’m going to go and enjoy my summer and think about what comes next in a couple of weeks. I’ll worry about what’s going to happen when I get back.

“I have really enjoyed being at Motherwell. I wouldn’t mind trying something different. I’m not desperate to go to another team in Scotland. If something came up abroad or somewhere else then I’d maybe give it a go. If I stay in Scotland then I’d rather stay at Motherwell.

“My wife is happy here and she’s a home bird but I’ll try my best to persuade her.”

The Glasgow Clinic, in 2012, performed the first ever FUE hair transplant surgery to take place in the country and implanted a world record in the number of grafts (2,684) implanted in one day by manual FUE.

The procedure begins with hairs being grafted directly from the scalp using a punch to remove the complete follicular units. They are then harvested under a microscope and by using very thin blades or needles to create new incisions; the hairs are replaced one by one as quickly as possible into the selected re-implantation sites with small forceps.

It’s a less invasive hair transplant procedure than other available treatments and causes only minimal scarring that is virtually invisible to the naked eye.

Ideal candidates for FUE hair transplants are those suffering from male or female pattern baldness, people suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania and hair loss due to radiotherapy or chemotherapy. It’s also a procedure used for beard reconstruction, eyebrows rebuild or burned scalp and scar repair.
