In exclusive pictures published by The Sun, Mike can be seen sitting in a surgeon's chair while hairs were removed from the back of his head and replaced around his receding hairline.
Despite being covered in blood and the op taking a whopping eight hours, Mike still managed a smile.
Although Mike has not spoken directly about the procedure, he has retweeted the photographs, adding: "In need of some TLC."
Mike joined the cast of TOWIE in 2015, however bosses suspended him until further notice following an alleged incident in August.
The 22-year-old reality star is due to appear in court on 14 December to stand trial for allegedly assaulting a police officer, a charge which he denies.
Meanwhile, Mike's TOWIE co-stars have been busy filming this year's Christmas special. Along with ice-skating antics and visits to a turkey farm, some of the cast members travelled to Liverpool for some festive filming.
TOWIE are yet to confirm when The Only Way Is Essexmas will air on ITVBe.
