PLASTIC SURGERY UPDATE: MICHAEL JACKSON WAS FIRST WITH THE FACIAL HAIR TRANSPLANT
It looks like Michael Jackson was a pioneer in a peculiar form of plastic surgery and now it’s caught on with all kinds of men! We’re talking about beard transplants! When he was younger and dreamed of looking like Diana Ross, Michael had electrolysis on his face to remove whiskers. Later in life, he yearned for that George Clooney “five o’clock shadow” and he actually had hair transplanted to his face. We were both shocked and revolted, but now the surgery has caught on among guys who want to fill in gaps and create designer stubble. Page Six says it’s all the rage among Brooklyn hipsters these days. Can beard weaves be far behind?
