Hear from a few military servicemen we’ve had the privilege of serving & helping get their hair back:
Jeff B. honorably served for years in the United States Army Special Forces. When he returned home, he became a firefighter, then an actor… and started noticing his hair loss impacting his self-esteem.
“Losing my hair did blindside me. I mean, I knew it could happen, but the thing that blindsided me most was how it affected me. I thought I’d just be the guy that would man up and be tough and shave my head and move on and do my job and that was that. But I thought about my hair even while I was going to do my cool G.I. Joe missions.
“My moment where I realized it was time to have hair restoration or do something about it was the first time I chose to shave my head and the military was not the one telling me to. I continued shaving my head because that was the only way I felt I could cope with my hair loss. And I realized that’s not the way I wanted to live.”
“Green Berets, Navy Seals, anybody in the special operations community, they are some of the finest, most elite men on this planet, always have been, always will be. But at the end of the day, they’re still human. They’re still looking at themselves in the mirror when they brush their teeth.”
Travis Mills: Retired United States Army Staff Sergeant & Recalibrated Warrior
Travis Mills is a retired sergeant who’s now a motivational speaker & advocate for veterans and amputees. He lost portions of both arms and legs from an IED while on active duty in Afghanistan – and shortly after returning home, he also started losing a lot of his hair prematurely.
We’re currently working with him to restore his hair with an FUE hair transplant. Follow along at @bosleymedical to witness Travis Mills’ ongoing hair restoration journey and be inspired by his strength!
Hair Transplants for Military – FAQs
Can I keep my head shaved to a military cut if I get a hair transplant?
Yes, you can. An FUE hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure where the hair follicles are extracted and then implanted one at a time. The procedure leaves no linear scar and after a short healing period, the donor and recipient areas are virtually undetectable. Hair can be kept short with no ongoing maintenance required.
