EXCLUSIVE: Love Island’s Dom Lever reveals he’s had a hair transplant to restore his receding hairline – and the new dad says he ‘didn’t feel a thing’


He’s used to being in the public eye and looking his best.

And now Love Island star Dom Lever has ensured his locks are always camera ready by having a hair transplant at KSL Clinics to restore his receding hairline. 

The new father, 28, was filmed during the procedure, which he said didn’t hurt at all, but did admit he ‘might be feeling it in the morning’.

In a video shared with MailOnline, the reality TV star is seen laying on the treatment table for stage two of the procedure.

He explained how the doctor has just finished the ‘incisions’ and that so far it had all been almost pain free.

In the procedure, hair follicles are removed one by one from the donor area and then small incisions are made for the hair follicles to be placed on the new site.

Dom said: ‘Other than the anesthetic going in, I didn’t feel a single thing. Now it’s just putting them [the hairs] into the front of my head. I can’t wait to get finished really.’

The father-of-one is then seen smiling after having the treatment and has a bandage wrapped around his head.

He said: ‘That’s me done for the day, had the hair transplant as you can see. It’s been amazing, literally took half the time I thought it would.

‘Everyone here’s been amazing, made me feel super welcome, and I literally didn’t feel a thing.

‘But I imagine I’m gonna feel it in the morning. It’s just about after care now and as you can see that’s my new hairline so thank you KSL.’

Speaking after his hair transplant, Dom had nothing but praise for the team at KSL, who have clinics in Kent and Manchester, who worked on him.

He said: ‘Everyone made me feel proper at home and secure, this place is amazing whole team are gents.

KSL have also performed hair transplants on X Factor contestant’s Jack Quickenden and Christopher Maloney, singer Gareth Gates and actor Joe Swash.

‘Just because we chose to share an image yesterday does not mean that’s when they ere born. Dom, baby and I are happy, healthy and recovering at our own rate.’
