Chicago-based surgeon Dr. William Yates has provided the Academy Awards gift bags with vouchers for free hair transplants using a new-age procedure, according to NBC Chicago.

2014 Oscar Nominees Receive Hair Transplant Vouchers in Gift BagsThe voucher comes in first on the list of ridiculously priced gift bag items, as its cash value is $16,000 (just slightly more than the second-most expensive item, a $15,000 walking tour of Japan).

Yates uses equipment known as ARTAS, which he says is less invasive and results in a shorter recovery time than hair plugs.

When asked if he was worried about potentially handling the heads and hairs of A-List celebrities, Yates doesn't seem fazed. "Everybody's hair is the same to me," Yates says.

Wonder if any nominees will look a little different in the coming year? We'll have to wait and see!
