    The Associated Press: Might be more to Tom Brady's hair than eye can see

    Take heart, guys. Tom Brady may not be perfect, after all.

    With his chiseled good looks, Super Bowl trophies and supermodel wife, the New England Patriots quarterback sure seems to have hit the genetic jackpot. According to one report, though, Brady is facing the same struggle as millions of ordinary Joes.

    Hair loss.

    The National Enquirer reported that Brady's car was spotted outside Leonard Hair Transplant Associates in Cranston, R.I., on Nov. 9. That would be the office of Dr. Robert Leonard, described on his website as "New England's foremost authority on hair restoration."

    "Guys just don't want to be bald," said Dr. Raymond Konior of Premiere Hair Restoration in Chicago. "Great heads of hair are perceived as being stronger people, better-looking people."

    Leonard's office wouldn't confirm if Brady was a patient, saying in a statement that, to protect patients' privacy, "We don't comment on, confirm, deny or otherwise discuss matters related to our client list." But if Brady is having hair restoration, Konior said it's highly unlikely he's doing it with five weeks left in the regular season and the playoffs looming.

    A call to Brady's agent, Don Yee, wasn't immediately returned.

    Hair restoration is a surgical procedure and, like any other, requires recovery time. While it varies by procedure and patient, it's usually at least a week.

    Procedures can last anywhere from four to 14 hours, depending on how much hair is being moved, and can cost between $5,000 and $18,000.

    "Once it's healed, that hair acts like it was always there," Konior said. "It's like a broken bone. Once it's healed, it's healed."

    The Enquirer said Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen, was behind the do-over. When Brady was razzed about his shaggy, Justin Bieber-like look earlier this season, he indicated it was his wife's doing.

    But a bad cut is one thing, a surgical cut is another, said Michael Shaun Corby, a celebrity hair stylist and global creative director for Alterna Professional Haircare in Los Angeles.

    "A lot of people think only women have a bad hair day, but men can be affected just as much," Corby said. "Men have the same problems, they just don't feel attractive if they don't have a good hair day."

    Maybe even Tom Brady.

    I dated a guy back in law school who used Propecia. Said it was better than Rogain.

    This is the stupidest article of all time..

    My wife gets her hair done right next to Leonard Hair Transplants... sometimes we go together, and I wait outside listening to the idiots on the radio..

    In the common parking lot there is a white escalade with the RI license plate, TBrady... it is there just about every time I have been there. Believe at one time Brady did own property in RI, but he sold it.. does anyone think that #12 is going to drive around with vanity plates with his name on it.

    Idiotic press, they need something to do...

    Apparently he uses the hair from his new Uggs to plug into his scalp. I guess the wife wants that furry ugg feeling always touching her ankles.....

    If his wife is stressing about his bald spot, that's not good. It means she's very vain, for one thing. Also hair loss is progressive...I started getting "thin" at 30 and now it's a baseball sized spot which is VERY thing at 45.

    There's basically little you can do. Plugs are stupid because the part they "harvest" hair has the skin "stretched". It's best to just man up. It's inevitable. You can't fight it. Propecia is a hormone drug stops you from producing DHT which is related to sex drive, agression in general etc. Minoxidil may work but I don't think permanently.

    I thought I'd be balding by now, but I'm not. Still, my plan when it happens? 1 Guard and/or shaving razor.

    As for Tom, he could have a purple mohawk as long as he's throwing TDs. :D
