“Should never have done anything”: Joe Rogan on his failed hair transplant experience

Joe Rogan, a UFC colour commentator, has a large scar on the back of his head from numerous hair transplant procedures.

The most popular hair transplant technique is strip harvesting, which involves removing a strip of skin with hair follicles from the posterior scalp and transplanting it to the balding region. The operation left a scar on Rogan’s posterior scalp, which can be seen on the back of his head.

He revealed on his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience that he had a hair transplant three times in his late twenties and detailed the operation when discussing the mark.

“The way they do (hair transplants these days) is they take a single thing (hair). It’s not like the old way of doing it. But they (used to) take a big strip of hair. So there’s like a big scar on the back of my head like a smile, for the rest of my life,” said Rogan.

Rogan has been a well-known TV personality since his twenties, and an individual’s chances of success in the TV and entertainment industries are heavily reliant on his physical presence.

The UFC colour commentator revealed that he had the hair transplant because he was afraid of missing out on opportunities.

Should have just shaved my head: Rogan

“I had a hair transplant. Had my first one when I was 26. three of them ’cause my hair was falling out and was freaking out.Was freaking out because I was on TV too… should never have done anything. I should have just shaved my head from the beginning,” said Rogan.

Rogan has gone bald in recent years and does not consider undergoing cosmetic procedures to improve his physical appearance. He revealed that his lack of hair has not harmed his chances at success.

Rogan has been the most recognisable face of the UFC’s broadcast team while also being one of the most popular podcasters.

He signed a multi-year exclusive contract with Spotify worth an estimated $100 million in 2020, causing his net worth to skyrocket in a relatively short period of time.
