The footballer – like many men – was becoming increasingly conscious of his receding hairline.
However, he decided to take the matter into his own hands and undergo cutting-edge FUE (follicular unit extraction) surgery.
“I was really conscious in my footballing days of my receding hairline, especially as it became just as much about the TV appearances and magazine shoots as the game itself. Each day I was worried how long I had to last,” Jason said.
Jason added: “There’s a stigma about these this of thing, but it’s as easy as popping into a spa nowadays. The team at Farjo really put me at ease, and I’m thrilled with my restoration results.”
The Farjo Hair Institute carries out over 400 operations each year at its Manchester & London clinics. More than 5,000 people have travelled from across the UK, Europe and as far as the Middle East, Australia and the United States to be treated at the clinic.
Since retiring he has played in charity football matches, appeared regular as a match analyst on LFC TV and married his wife Lucy Edwards.
Baldness is thought to run in the family. Men who worry about hair loss often think if their father isn’t bald that means they won’t lose their hair either.
But is this really the case? Express.co.uk revealed the truth of the matter.

If you want to make your hair look fuller you need to be very specific with your hairdresser about the shape you want.
A bald head is the very realistic nightmare that half of British men can expect to face by the age of 50. A bald man can resent his shining head and many pay out large sums to try and save his crowning glory.
Men may soon be able to take a test to discover if they will lose their locks.
The test that is being developed will study a man’s genes, to pinpoint whether they have a genetic make-up that will make them bald.
