"Performing in front of a live audience of thousands of screaming fans can be pretty intimidating for even the most seasoned performers," says 'N Sync member Joey Fatone. "You're being scrutinized by your fans. Back then, I was the only one in the group getting thinner on top. I became self-conscious and started wearing hats more often. Having a full head of hair was important to me so I asked my manager what I could do about it. The answer for me was going to Bosley for a hair restoration procedure. It's where lots of celebrities go."
Now Joey says he is feeling more confident these days. In fact, it's something he credits with making his self-confidence soar and helping him take his career to the next level. "Have thinning hair? Well that's life, but the beautiful thing is that now you can do something about it. You don't have to accept going bald."
Fatone believes there are several important steps to take when considering hair restoration.
As with any surgical procedure, always do your homework first. Since any licensed surgeon could undertake doing hair restoration, it's wise to select a surgical practice that performs these procedures full-time and has a great track record.
Have a face-to-face consultation with your hair restoration physician about your hair loss. This candid discussion of goals, expectations and treatment plans will help you achieve the best results.
It's important that your surgeon has the ability to create natural looking results by designing a personalized hair restoration plan that takes into account your age, facial structure, existing hairline, quality of hair and long-term goals.
For nearly 40 years, Beverly Hills, California-based Bosley has performed more than 250,000 hair restoration and eyebrow procedures and more than one million free consultations for men and women who have suffered from hair loss and progressive baldness. Bosley physicians focus on three key areas: Prevention, Retention and Restoration. Preventing hair loss from degenerating or getting worse, Retaining the hair the patient still has and Restoring the hair they have lost.
In addition to its restoration services, Bosley offers products that complement hair regrowth, including FDA-approved medical treatments designed to help patients preserve native hair and to maximize the results of their restoration. The company also has an extensive hair care line, including a line of hair care and styling products.
Fatone says he doesn't care who knows about his secret to success. "I'm happy to be associated with Bosley because they're the world's leading hair restoration expert. I'll tell anyone else out there concerned about hair loss that Bosley worked for me and it'll work for him or her. Hey, if you have something about yourself you don't like, you change it," he says.
Currently, Fatone is traveling the country with his cooking show "My Family Recipe Rocks," which airs Sunday nights on the Live Well Network. 'N Sync has sold more than 50 million records worldwide and still remains one of the biggest groups of all time.
