Method, developed in Italy, costs about 50 thousand reais and requires monthly maintenance; Arrested, businessman Eike Batista had his head shaved and the ‘prosthesis’ torn away
Entrepreneur Eike Batista, who has been imprisoned since Monday in Rio on charges of paying bribes to former governor Sérgio Cabral (PMDB), has been using a silicone prosthesis to conceal baldness for at least 10 years.
Vaughn, Eike had his baldness exposed after arrest, when his head was shaved – as is common practice among prisoners – and the prosthesis was removed before being taken to the Bandera Stampa Prison, known as Bangu 9, in the Gericino Complex, in the North Zone of Rio.
According to VEJA, the prosthesis consists of a tailored silicone film filled with micro-holes with diameters of the exact size of the patient’s hair. The yarns are handcrafted. The finished prosthesis is fixed with biological glue on the head – the area that will receive the film is previously scraped.
The method is known by the name of “capillary densification”. The technique was born in Italy, invented by Cesare Ragazzi, almost 50 years ago. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive method and therefore considered 100% safe. The prosthesis is so natural that it is not easily identified with the naked eye and not easily perceived by the touch.
The technique, however, requires monthly maintenance. Eike fulfilled the correct term and was attended in his house, in Rio de Janeiro. The businessman paid all the expenses of the professionals who were moving to attend him. The patient is free to perform any type of movement, including water sports. The average price is around 50 thousand reais.
Eike has already admitted having had a hair implant in 2010, but was not released if the process worked.
