The man opted for this cosmetic procedure due to premature balding, which caused his hairline to recede early.
He revealed that baldness runs in his family, as his father and brother also experience the same condition.
Due to this, he invested $6,000 in a hair transplant surgery in Turkey, a procedure that involves moving healthy hairs on the scalp to areas with thinning hair.
He explained that hospitals in the US were charging double that amount but he was able to get the procedure done cheaper in Turkey.
The X user, with the handle @LasTrain2London, posted photos of his head before the procedure, immediately after the procedure, and a recent photo.
“This is what Turkey did for me 🌹”, he captioned the post.
The tweet has sparked a flurry of comments on social media, with many people expressing interest in undergoing the procedure because they are also balding.
