Justin had previously spent $14,000 (£10,000) on over 40 laser hair removal sessions, but now wants more facial hair as he approaches his 40s
‘I was pulling spikes towards the centre of my face to hide the spots on my sides that were less dense.
‘There’s a lot you can hide with make-up, but it takes such a weight off you, knowing you don’t have to do that anymore and has really built my confidence and self-esteem.’
Dr John Kahen, from Beverly Hills Hair Restoration performed the specialized follicular unit extraction, a hair graph transplant procedure that costs $15,000 (£11,000).
Justin said: ‘They took the little cookie cutter pieces from my head and on each little circle of skin that was around 2mm they could take two hairs.
‘The hair at the back of your head is more dense and genetically programmed to always grow.

‘Then they made little punctures in the skin around my eyebrows, forehead and sideburns area, then inserted the individual hairs and follicles in each one.
‘I had to let the skin heal and scab around the hair follicles, within two weeks the hair started to shed but then months later, the follicle that remains slowly starts growing new hair.’
Now Justin is amazed by how much fuller his hairline appears and says it has allowed him to feel more comfortable with aging.
He added: ‘I’m not trying to look younger, but to maintain the look I have now, I have an image to uphold as the Human Ken doll.
‘The transformation is quite impressive and is something that not many people realize is doable. The doctor implants eyelashes and even pubic hair.
‘I never knew you could do that until I went to see Doctor Kahen.
‘I’m really happy with how I look now, everyone talks to me about it, even my bank teller commented on how good my hair looks.’
