Jeremy Piven Plastic Surgery Before and After Facelift

Jeremy Piven's Head Scar Analyzed

Jeremy Piven loves plastic… plastic boobs that is. His companion is sporting a pair of obviously fake breasts.
Jeremy Piven’s head scar is not from a facelift or as he claims, ‘stage injuries’, but are actually from a hair transplant, where scalp is cut from the back of the head and then used to fill the balding patches in other portions of the head.


In the past, actor Jeremy Piven, 44, has used toupees to cope with hair loss. (See photos below.)

Recently he adopted a new tactic: hair transplants. The photo above shows a line in his scalp where hair plugs were removed so they could be transplanted higher on his head.

This strip method of hair transplants is common, but an alternative, the Neograft system of Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, was approved last year by the Food and Drug Administration.

It automates the process of removing individual hair follicles from different locations, which typically allows hair restoration specialists to collect hair for transplants without creating a visible scar.

Neograft systems are currently available in Los Angeles, Pasadena and at the OC Aesthetics Medical Group in Orange.

Hair transplants aren’t cheap. Filling in a bald spot can cost $5,000.

The actual price will depend on the doctor, the hair-replacement technique used, the extent of hair loss, and the patient’s hair type.

“Although linear harvesting or ‘the strip-method’ is the least expensive way to transplant hair, it can lead to a ‘tell-tale’ donor scar which may be visible from a distance if not covered with enough surrounding hair,” says Dr. Alan Bauman of Boca Raton, Fla.
