KRIS Boyson has been pictured out with plug marks as he sparks rumours he's had a hair transplant.
The 31-year-old looks to have followed in the footsteps of Wayne Rooney and Coronation Street actor Jack P Shepherd by undergoing the procedure to make himself look "years younger".
Hair transplant surgeon Asim Shahmalak said that Kris Boyson had almost certainly had a transplant to bring his hairline forward and fill in the balding areas around his temples.
Surgeon to the stars, Dr Shahmalak, from Crown Clinic in Manchester, said: "Kris looks like he is about two weeks into recovery.
"Those marks at the front of his hairline and around his temples are where the new hair has been moved.
"It will have been extracted from the back of his scalp. He would have had small scabs in those areas immediately after the operation which have now healed and the shaded area just beneath his swept back hair is where the new hair will grow.
"Kris is 31 now. By that age around a third of men are losing their hair, particularly if baldness runs in the family. He is right to take action now because his hair loss is only likely to accelerate over the next few years."
Dr Shahmalak believes Kris had an FUE procedure (follicular unit extraction) which means donor hairs are removed individually from the back of the scalp and then replanted in the balding areas.
"Techniques have improved markedly in the last ten years and you can now have a long-haired FUE procedure which precludes the need to fully shave the back and side of the scalp to obtain the donor hairs.
"Instead a narrow strip of hair at the back of the scalp is shaved and the donor hair is removed from this patch."
Dr Shahmalak is known as the surgeon to the stars because of his work with leading celebrities such as model Calum Best, TV doctor Christian Jessen and Homes Under The Hammer presenter Martin Roberts.
He said that the age of first time hair transplant patients had come down markedly in the last decade.
Dr Shahmalak said: "I am seeing lots more relatively young men - those in their twenties and early 30s who see how stars like Robbie Williams and Calum Best look years younger after their procedures and want to do the same.
"They don't want to wait till they are bald before taking action. Kris is to be applauded for getting his hair sorted out. He will look years younger when it grows back."
A lot has changed for Kris in 2020 after moving on from Katie Price with Bianca Gasgoine.
