The cost of the hair transplant may vary from $1,500 in India or Turkey to $20,000 and over in the USA. Usually, the hair transplant is out-of-pocket. Insurance companies consider the procedure as a cosmetic one, so do not cover the hair transplant cost.

That’s why the hair plantation cost is one of the key factors why people decide to do this procedure not at home, but in other countries.

The approximate number of grafts required for every case.

What does the hair transplant price depend on?

Worth saying that only a doctor can calculate the hair transplant price during the consultation. But there are such factors that significantly influence the hair transplant cost:

  •  
  • The country. The average hair transplant cost varies from country to country. For instance, the price in Europe may be up to 2 times lower than in the USA. The price policy in Europe, Korea, Israel is approximately at the same level. The best hair transplant prices are in Turkey, India, and Malaysia. They are 20-50% lower than in Europe.
  • The clinic. The hair replacement cost may vary within the country in different medical facilities. Some centers offer special prices for a hair transplant. But it is better to avoid clinics with suspiciously low hair transplant costs.
  • The hair transplant type. FUE (seamless) hair transplant cost is usually higher than the FUT hair transplant price. Learn more about these techniques below.
  • The hair transplant cost per graft and its quantity. It is difficult to determine the average hair transplant cost because it depends on a number of grafts a patient needs. From 1,000 to 7,000 grafts may be required. The bigger number of grafts is necessary, the higher hair grafting cost is.
  • The size of a hairless area. The hair transplant cost for beard, head, eyebrows differs due to the size of these areas. The same concerns the hairline transplant cost.
  • Surgeon’s skills and experience. Doctors with vast experience and positive patients’ reviews may ask for a higher fee increasing the hair transplant price. The choice of a highly-skilled doctor is a key factor to the procedure success. It is better to pay a higher hair plantation price and be sure of the result.

Except for the above-mentioned factors, it is necessary to calculate the travel charges. For instance, people who want combine treatment and vacation will spend more money. Also, the hair replacement cost may be affected with airport-clinic transfer or taxi, accommodation for 5 days (a compulsory duration of stay in a country to gave a hair transplant).

6. Hair transplant cost may differ by 20 (!) times depending on the country. About the hair transplant surgery cost read below.

 

Nowadays, doctors apply 2 main hair transplant techniques:

  •  
  • FUE (follicular unit extraction)
  • FUT (follicular unit transplantation), or Strip method.

 

FUE hair transplant technique

FUE is a minimally invasive seamless hair transplant type. During the procedure, a doctor extracts hair follicles and creates grafts (a group of 3-4 follicles). The follicles are taken from the nape area or other parts — the breast, legs, beard. Then, these grafts are transplanted to the hairless area without incisions or stitches.

FUE hair transplant steps:

Step. 1. “Drilling-out” the follicles with a special microsurgical instrument, their extraction, and preparation.

Step. 2. Creating the channels for a hair transplant in the hairless area.

Step. 3. Single-piece implantation of grafts in the prepared channels.

FUE technique is performed in 2 ways:

  •  
  • Manual. A doctor transplants the grafts using a special tube. This is a time-taking process — up to 6 hours. During this period, a doctor may get tired and become less attentive. That is why only up to 3,000 grafts can be transplanted for 1 session. The number of sessions also influences the hair plantation cost.
  • Robotic. Some clinics are equipped with robotic units. The devices do not ‘get tired’ and can perform a hair transplant as long as necessary. The hair transplant cost with a robot is higher than a manual one.

Duration of the FUE hair transplant procedure: 5-8 hours.

FUE hair transplant technique

Advantages of the FUE hair transplant: no scarring, fast recovery period.

Disadvantages of the FUE hair transplant: it is not applied for patients with the large hairless area, the hair transplant operation takes more time than FUT one.

The FUE hair transplant cost is more expensive than FUT one due to its low-injury rate and accelerated recovery.

FUT hair transplant technique

FUT is a hair transplant method when a doctor takes a hairy strip from the donor area and then divides it into grafts.

FUT hair transplant steps:

Step. 1. A doctor marks the donor’s skin area (strip). Its length is 20-25 cm, width — 1.5 cm.

Step. 2. A doctor carefully cuts out the marked skin area with a lancet. Then the injury is stitched.

Step. 3. The received strip is divided into grafts (a group of 3-4 follicles).

Step. 4. A doctor creates the channels in the recipient area with a special instrument.

Step. 5. The grafts are implanted into the prepared channels.

Duration of the FUT hair procedure: 3-4 hours.

FUT hair transplant technique

Advantages of the FUT hair transplant: it is applied for patients with a big in size hairless area, shorter operation time.

Disadvantages of the hair transplant: high injury-rate and scaring.

The FUT hair transplant cost is cheaper than the FUE one. It does not require such an accuracy than the FUE transplant.

Recovery after the procedure

The rehab duration after a hair transplant is individual; it depends on personal features.

A patient does not need admission after the procedure. After the operation, a doctor applies a bandage on the donor area, prescribes painkiller (if necessary) and special shampoo to boost the healing process. A patient needs to visit a doctor on the 5th day after the operation.

The result after a hair transplant is visible in 6-10 months. Before this, a patient needs to pass the following steps:

 

1 month after a hair transplant

 

The healing process after a hair transplant takes 5-10 days. A special shampoo is used to wash the head. A patient can wash the hair as usual in 2-3 weeks. This shampoo is usually included in the hair transplant cost.

As a rule, in 20-25 days after the procedure, transplanted hair starts to fall out. This is a normal condition. The process takes about 2 months.

 

2 months after a hair transplant

 

Within the 2nd month, a patient can see a growth of a new hair. It is thin but soon becomes denser.

 

3-6 months after a hair transplant

 

The growth of transplanted hair is active. A patient notices that it becomes thicker.

 

6-10 months after a hair transplant

 

During this period a patient observes the most impressive ‘before-after’ difference.

 

1 year after a hair transplant

 

It takes a year to estimate the final hair transplant result. In rare cases, it may take a little longer.

 

How much does hair transplant recovery cost?

The previously calculated hair transplant you should pay in the clinic changes rarely. But additional charges may appear during the rehab period. However, they won’t affect the hair transplant surgery cost significantly. Among them are:

  •  
  • painkillers to make the recovery period more comfortable
  • antibiotics to prevent infection
  • anti-inflammatory drugs that reduce post-surgical swelling.

If the recovery period is complicated, additional visits to doctor may be required. It also influences the hair transplant surgery cost.

 

Hair transplant: results

People who suffer from hair loss or baldness often consider a hair transplant as the most effective solution of their problem. After the procedure they receive:

  • The perfect visual result. Transplanted hair grows the same way as patient’s own.
  • Transplanted hairs do not fall out.
  • Scars are absent or almost invisible (if the FUE technique is applied).
  • A patient feels confident and looks great.
