STAR Wars legend Warwick Davis has had a £10,000 hair transplant performed by a robot.
The actor underwent the pioneering five-hour procedure after reading up on techniques to bolster his barnet.
Pals say 3ft 5in Warwick, 48, “looks and feels great” after the surgery but the final result will not be apparent for months.
Star Wars regular Warwick — Wicket the Ewok in the first films — had the stitches-free transplant under local anaesthetic.
It was done by the world’s only transplant surgery automaton — the Artas Robotic System — which used algorithms to select the best hairs for harvesting from his head.
Its micro-arm removed follicles from hairy parts of Warwick’s bonce and inserted them into his balding areas at the Farjo Hair Institute clinic in Cheshire.
A source said: “Warwick was becoming increasingly self-conscious about his receding hair.
"He may not be a traditional Hollywood leading man but he’s always in demand and is recognised everywhere.
“He’s really pleased with the result.” A spokesman for Warwick did not comment.
