When the hair of a man's head is transplanted onto a woman's scalp, it's an extraordinary case of the impossible: hair transplants, often performed on babies with special needs, can be risky, expensive and extremely rare. And so it is that the hair transplanted on a newborn in New Jersey was transplanted to a newborn born with Down syndrome in California, where there is a shortage of the transpla...
The island nation of Cyprus has announced it will offer hair transplants to its football players in a bid to combat the scourge of hair loss.
The country is home to more than 20 million people, but the number of balding men has reached more than a quarter of the population, according to a recent government survey.
The Cypriot government says the country needs to tackle the problem because it has been overtaken by a new wave of bald men.
It hopes to attract around 5 million new footballers to the island next season, as the island continues to struggle with its own health problems.
The number of men with bald spots has risen to more to about 6 million, but most are from the former Soviet republic of Georgia and Armenia.
Cyprus has seen its population grow from 3.6 million in the early 1990s to 6.5 million today.
The island is home in part to the famed football team of Cyprus and is home for a quarter-million fans, but it also has a long history of problems with its hair.
The island was recently declared a “foreign territory” by the United Nations, but there are no formal restrictions on foreign visitors.
The current health crisis is exacerbated by a high rate of hair follicle cancer, the disease that causes hair loss and can cause a loss of facial hair.
A recent survey showed that more than half of men over 40 with bald patches had the disease.
There are no official figures for the number with the condition in Cyprus.
The hair transplant program is part of the government’s campaign to reduce the country’s population of bald and balding males.
It is hoped that this will help the country attract new football fans, as well as help control the growing number of hairless men.
The Cyprus Football Federation has been working to promote the program, and officials said they hoped to offer the surgery at a new facility in the city of Sathorn in the south of the island.
The plan is not the only way the Cypriots hope to address the problem.
In March, the government opened a new public swimming pool for boys, and a new swimming course for boys.
In March, officials also said that the country was set to introduce new gender-neutral clothing.
