Probably, you know what hair transplant or may be not. Hair transplant is process of removing hairs from the part of head where hair fall does not occur and carefully planting them to balding areas. It’s a surgical method carried out under local anaesthesia which makes it completely painless and comfortable. Hair transplant provides permanent and natural looking results.
Although, the cost of hair transplant is affected by several factors, they are the cost determinants.
Let’s know what are these.
The cost of hair transplant is, usually, given in per graft. Therefore the overall cost of the procedure depends on the how much hair grafts are required to be planted on the scalp of the patient to cover the bald area. Generally, requirement of large number of hair grafts can lower the price of per graft.
Type of treatment
There are two types of procedures available for hair restoration: FUT(Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE(Follicular Unit Extraction). These procedures have different costs. Generally, it’s been seen that the cost of FUE is more than FUT. However it depends on surgeon for which type of surgery he charges more.
Place of the clinic/doctor
As we can see in the picture the price of the hair transplant is varying in different countries. Just like on city level prices of hair transplant in India, could be different. Metro cities doctors charge more for hair transplant than the small cities.
Prices can shuffle due to high competition as more numbers of clinics are located in a single area or city.
Less hair In donor area
Not having enough hair on the back side of the scalp can affect the price of hair transplantation. The doctor would first evaluate the donor area of the scalp and perform diagnosis. In such cases, doctors take hair from another part of body & harvest into scalp bald area that is called body hair transplant & it may increase the cost by 10 to 15 %.
Complexity of Surgery
Due to certain issues hair transplant can be complex like skin elasticity. Skin in the different part of the body comprises a different level of elasticity. like on knee skin can be pinched and pulled away, easier than the areas like chicks and palms.
In hair transplantation, it plays an important role because from the skin hairs follicles and tissues are extracted. Hard skin makes the process of extraction hard. Patients with such cases are treated with a higher cost than the normal.
Experience and Branding
The more experienced and proficient the surgeon would be the more he will charge for his services, resulting in desired results to patients. Often, surgeons with less experience do not provide the wanted results patients expect and their money can be wasted.
Also, doctors, holding multiple qualifications & awards in the field and membership of international medical organizations are more trustworthy for hiring their services. Yes, it can cost you more but results would be unbelievable.
