Married At First Sight’s Samuel Levi recently underwent a life changing experience – a hair transplant.
After feeling self-conscious and struggling with his hair loss for years, the reality television star is now feeling like he’s a completely new person.
The 29-year-old influencer told Daily Mail Australia of the procedure: ‘My confidence has changed dramatically, and I feel like an entire new person.’

‘I am no longer wearing hats as often, which is such a major thing for me,’ he continued.
‘When I look in the mirror now I am really starting to like the person I see.’
Samuel explained that since the surgery back in May he has been inundated with messages from followers asking advice about getting their own hair done.
The beauty influencer underwent a hair transplant at a Bondi clinic, after three years of feeling ‘insecure’ about his receding hairline.

‘I have always had a big forehead, and had constant remarks made about it over the years,’ said Sam.
‘It made me so self-conscious, and insecure and really does hurt deep inside.’
‘I noticed my hair was thinning as the years went by, and I especially noticed this during my time on TV,’ he added.

‘I am all about trying to be positive, accepting everyone for who they are, but at some point you really have to look at whatever is making you feel bad about yourself.’
Samuel said the comments would make him feel insecure about his hair, so he decided to explore his options.
‘For me, that was my hairline, my thinning hair, and I wanted to change that and move forward feeling confident and loving myself,’ he said.
Supportive: ‘My partner Liam [Cooper] has actually been so damn supportive, it has made this process so much easier, allowed me to feel comfortable,’ he said
‘I’m not getting any younger, and want to live my most happy and authentic self, and want to display this. This was the way to do it,’ he continued.
Samuel added he had the full support of his boyfriend Liam Cooper, who appeared on last year’s season of MAFS Australia.
‘Liam has actually been so damn supportive. It made this process so much easier, and allowed me to feel comfortable,’ he said.
Regrowth: The procedure involves taking hair follicles from the back of the head – where hair is at its fullest and thickest – and placing them at the front of the hairline

‘There’s been no judgement. Nothing. He has been with me from the start of me talking about the idea of going through with it, to coming with me and looking after me once I left the two-day surgery.
‘This has certainly helped me a lot, especially during this vulnerable time with my appearance, going bald and shaving my hair off, and how I am basically looking afterwards, for the next few months ahead.’
The procedure involves taking hair follicles from the back of the head – where hair is at its fullest and thickest – and placing them at the front of the hairline.
Hair grafts are extracted in follicular units comprising of 1-4 hairs through a follicular unit extraction (FUE) method.
A hair transplant in Australia can cost anywhere between $10,000 and $20,000, depending on the extent of the hair loss and the type of procedure you have.
