Cricket is known as the gentleman’s game. There was an era when the game was played only by the selected few from the gentry. With time, the game evolved and more commercial aspect came to fore. Players started becoming models in their spare time and their looks started to matter as much as their cricketing prowess.
Australia in the last couple of decades has been a top side in the world and their players have cashed in on the commercial opportunities provided by their success. Ricky Ponting has been one of the most successful Aussie captains of all times. He has also made a name as a dashing top order batsman with killer styles.
However, the 40-year-old started losing his hair a while back and even though this had little effect on how he performs on the field, it could damage his off field career. So what did he do? Well he opted for a hair transplant to correct the problem and regain the lost hair. It is a hush hush affair as far as the former skipper is concerned but his sudden hair improvement has been an obvious sign.
There was a noticeable amount of hair loss in the frontal areas of the head. Since the players are always under scrutiny, it didn’t take the fans a long time to realize the Punter, as he is lovingly called, was going bald.
The nature of surgery is open to speculation but the most likely procedures here were either the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) or the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Since there is no official word, there can be no certainty.
Ponting is not the only Australian cricketer to get a hair transplant in recent times and legendary spinner Shane Warne also has recently undergone the knife to get his locks back. Warnie was quite open about the whole affair and did not try to conceal the fact he got hair restoration. It now seems to be becoming rather common amongst the celebs to not hide such procedures.
If you too are suffering from hair loss and want to keep yourself looking young and smart, a hair transplant surgery is certainly not a bad option. You should meet a hair transplant surgeon to discuss the possibilities.

"I was really pleased with my experience at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery. I had to cancel the first date I booked, because of my daughter, but when I called them the next day, they fit us in that afternoon, which was really good. My mum and I went to a free consultation for Laser Assisted Liposuction, and it went very well. We were really impressed with the doctor, Dr. Juan Tadeo Krogulec - he was lovely. He spent as long as we needed with us, and didn't rush us. He was really thorough and not only did he answer all of our questions, he answered others we hadn't even thought of asking! I think that when the time comes for treatment we'll probably be going with them.".
I am very satisfied with my results. I strongly recommend this clinic for every one who wants great result and its very cheap to :). Dr. Cagtay and his team are very professional and do take care of their patients.".
