Britain's Got Talent star George Sampson has revealed his hair transplant was a "massive success". Taking to his social media pages, the 23-year-old shared a picture of his newly shaved head - days after he told fans he was struggling with hair loss. "Had the best day ever thanks to wonderful people of @juvidaclinics... the transplant was a massive success and now recovery begins...," he wrote alongside the snap.
Fans were quick to wish the dancer a speedy recovery, with one writing: "Glad it went well, hope you have a speedy recovery." Another follower said: "Well done buddy @georgesampson and hope your feeling better soon." A third post read: "Welcome to the club! The next few months will go very slowly, but when the new growth starts it'll change your life."
Last week, in a lengthy post, George confessed he has wanted to undergo the procedure for a long time because he was suffering from alopecia and a genetic condition. Posting on Twitter, the TV star wrote: "On the 26 April 2017, I will be travelling to the Juvida Clic, Skipton, to have a HAIR TRANSPLANT… This is something I've considered having done for years, I have always been convincing myself I'm not worried or it's not a big deal but really it is. I am only 23."

He continued to explain why he has suffered for hair loss, writing: "It's not only for my own confidence but also being in my line of work which is very image orientated and unfortunately I felt my hair (lack of) could affect my work. My hair loss comes from three things; alopecia (caused by a lot of stress and loss of a family member), genetics and head spinning, as the hair loss is not only a receding hair line but a strip down the centre of my head. I spend so much time doing my hair (well Lauren does) to try and cover up as much as I can and to make use of the hair I do have. I've decided I've had enough of that, I want my own hair, I am only 23 and balding seems like something which happens to older men so I decided I will go through with a transplant."
