Wes Welker

Hair Transplant

Bald is not beautiful ... it's embarrassing ... and men should do whatever it takes to hide their hairless shame ... so implies Wes Welker -- the new face of hair transplant surgery.

The 31-year-old New England Patriots wide receiver has revealed ... he underwent hair transplant surgery back in July after noticing his hair was starting to thin.

In fact, Welker is enjoying his new thickened mop so much, he's agreed to star in an ad campaign with the man who re-populated his melon, Dr. Robert Leonard of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates.

According to the LHTA, Welker's procedure went down in July -- with doctors "transplanting follicles to an area of Welker’s scalp where his hair had started to thin." 

5 hours later, Welker's dome was good to go ... and according to LHTA, Welker was "immediately able to resume his regular activities, including training for the football season and even wearing a helmet."

It's hard being teammates with Tom Brady ... that beautiful sonofabitch.

That doesn't look like a hair transplant, it is too dense and would not have grown in that fast. It looks like he is wearing a Hugh Hefner style wig

Your story has 2 major problems due to sloppy reporting, TMZ:

1) You repeatedly say, "Back in July." Not sure what month it is where you are, but where the rest of us are it's still July.

2) If he had his hair transplant this month (July), the hairs would still be about 1/8 inch long (they're trimmed super short before they're transplanted) and would not be at all noticeable, so your "After" photo is a joke -- he just has the same old hair combed differently, probably to cover the grafts until they're grown out.

Again, great reporting TMZ. Can't believe they snubbed you for a Peabody once again.

Tom Brady was a patient of Dr. Leonard's as well. Look at Brady back in 2003/2004 and now.

He had the Jude Law look going on before the wig transplant.
