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.
