It's El Mundo to reveal important and interesting details on Rafael Nadal's hair transplant done in a clinic in Madrid a few weeks ago. An outpatient surgery that was pretty painful for Rafa, who had a local anesthetic.
The process was divided in two days, where Nadal has been treated for more than ten hours. According to what the doctor Mato Ansorena revealed, the therapy used was the Follicular Unit Extraction, which consists in removing the follicular units, which are composed each one by 2-3 hairs, from the nake in the case of the Spaniard player.
In that part of head, 'the hair never falls. It gets implanted in the frontal part of the head, where Nadal needed the hair', Ansorena said. Because of the tough process, Rafa had to wait for 15 days to have a "normal" life again, it means being able to sleep in any position and play sports.
The definitive look will be a reality in April because it takes six months to see the final result of this new and innovative treatment. Here is Nadal practicing in Mallorca on Friday night with the new hair that is still working in progress:
