Hair loss is very common these days but the condition becomes a severe problem when it leads to baldness. There are millions and millions of people including both men and women who are suffering from baldness. Those who suffer from this condition try lots of treatments including home remedies, topical medications and oral medications to get rid of this condition but none of them is as effective as hair transplant is. The demand and popularity of hair transplant is continuously increasing and no doubt it is the most effective and permanent solution to baldness. However, before you go under the knife you must be aware of important things associated with procedure and hair replacement cost is the most important one. Here we will discuss about the same factor.
Well, when it comes to the cost of hair replacement, it is not possible to know about the exact cost of the procedure. This is so because it varies from patient to patient depending on number of important factors. However, your surgeon can tell you about the exact cost of the procedure. Below given are some factors that are important to consider while determining hair replacement cost.
The cost of your hair transplant is determined on the basis of grafts according to your particular hair restoration requirements. Generally the cost of surgery is determined on the basis of following factors.
- Severity of hair loss
- Amount of hair available on donor area
- Texture, color and type of hairs on donor area
- Results you desire to get
Although your hair replacement cost will be determined depending on your needs but it also depends on general range of hair grafts required for restoration of hair. Some patients select to have more than one hair transplant procedure to get desired results. Transplantation of more hair during one procedure lowers the total cost of procedure on the basis of grafts.
Besides above given specific factors that are associated with the procedure of hair restoration, there are some other factors also that influence the overall cost of the procedure. These factors are given below.
Type of the procedure – The procedure of hair transplant can be performed using two techniques that are FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). The cost for these two techniques is not the same. Though it’s on your surgeon to determine the exact cost, generally FUE hair transplant is expensive as compared to FUT hair transplant.
Number of sessions – Sometimes the procedure of hair transplant can’t be done in single session depending on the number of grafts required. Performing hair transplant surgery in multiple sessions increases the overall cost of the procedure.
Equipment used – The technology used for surgery also influences the overall cost of procedure. Use of latest and the most advanced equipment increases the cost of the procedure.
Expertise of surgeon – The overall cost of the procedure also varies depending on the expertise of the surgeon. Having procedure done by highly qualified and board certified hair transplant surgeon will obviously be expensive.
Reputation of clinic – The reputation of the clinic you have selected for the procedure also affects the overall cost of the hair replacement.
