Going from rugby to cosmetic surgery is an unusual shift in career, but one that Cardiff Blues legend Xavier Rush has done, with good results.
His Welsh transplant clinic, Head Quarters (HQ), has received good cosmetic surgery reviews, and, as a result, the former All Black is going to expand into Bristol. The new consulting rooms will be placed at one of Bristol’s premier office spaces, the Temple Quay Centre, just a few minutes of walking away from the Bristol Temple Meads train station.
Notably, the Head Quarters business started after Xavier himself underwent hair transplant treatment and was pleased with the results. In turn, he decided to start his own hair transplant business in Cardiff with his own state-of-the-art clinic, converting an old Georgian building in Cardiff’s Charles Street for it.
Part of what allowed Head Quarters to receive such good cosmetic surgery reviews is the fact that Rush partnered up with one of the leading hair transplant surgeons operating in Cardiff, Dr. Ted Miln. Rush explains that they start early and finish late, with consistent performance in the business thanks to a superb team.
Rush openly stated that he believes that Head Quarters and Dr. Ted will become leaders in the field of hair transplants thanks to their standard of medical excellence, and their unique processes which allow for maximum density without putting too much strain on the donor areas and allow for quick recoveries.
Notably, this is not Rush’s first business venture outside of rugby, as he also started a property development firm, X-Stream Developments, which is still in operation alongside Head Quarters. This particular venture was started by the sports star in the early 00’s.
Rush says that the glory of property development; taking something unloved and neglected and bringing its former glory back, is not that much removed from what Head Quarters is doing with hair restoration.. He says that Head Quarters isn’t about sales number, or number of restorations, It’s about honest consulting and prioritizing the patient’s well-being, even if that means that they have to tell the patient that they can’t provide the best results for them.
