Akon has confirmed that he underwent a $7,500 hair transplant.
The musician confirmed traveling to Turkey for “a treatment” to restore his hairline in an interview with Bootleg Kev.
“In the beginning, my whole front was loose, it was real thin,” the 49-year-old told Kev, who asked if it was a painful procedure. “Nah, no. The painful part is the beginning when they gotta numb you up. That numbing ain’t no joke. They stick a needle like this big, non-stop.”
Akon acknowledged that a graft was taken, and despite the discomfort, he seems to be satisfied with the treatment overall. He said, “It looks wonderful,” to which Kev made a joke about Tory Lanez visiting the same doctor.
