How Much Do Hair Transplants Cost?

Hair loss affects over 80 million Americans. That’s a lot of people. If you are one of those people, it’s only natural to miss a full head of hair. Because wigs don’t typically cut it, hair transplantation is another option worth considering. But how much do hair transplants cost?

At other clinics, cost varies from $4,000 to $23,000, depending on the type of hair transplant. Small bald spots typically cost on the lower end. Meanwhile, expect to pay a higher number as you replace more hair; however at our clinic the price is the same for everyone, $6,995.

There are some fluctuations in cost that depend on various factors. Below, we will discuss your aspects and compare them to potential alternatives.

What is a Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which healthy hair follicles are taken from one area of the scalp, typically a thicker and more resistant area, and transplanted to another area where the hair is thinning or has been lost altogether. This is done to restore lost hair and improve the thickness and overall appearance of the hair.

The process of a hair transplant typically involves removing a strip of hair-bearing scalp from the donor area, which is then dissected into individual follicular units under a microscope. These units are then carefully transplanted into the recipient area, where they can begin to grow new hair.

There are two main types of hair transplant procedures: follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). FUT involves removing a strip of hair-bearing scalp, while FUE involves extracting individual follicular units directly from the scalp using a specialized instrument. If you have severe hair loss and require a FUT transplant, we do not currently offer those at this time. A free consultation will determine if an FUE transplant is right for you.

At Bubolo Medical, we offer a range of hair restoration options, including advanced techniques like NeoGraft and ARTAS, to provide our patients with the most effective and minimally invasive procedures possible. If you are struggling with hair loss, contact us today to learn more about our hair transplant services and how they can help you achieve a fuller, more natural-looking head of hair.

Factors That Impact Hair Transplant Costs

Several factors determine hair transplant prices:

  • How many individual hair follicles need to be transplanted, referred to as the number of grafts.
  • The type of procedure (strip harvesting, FUE (follicular unit transplantation))
  • The time required for the surgery
  • Location – other locations and countries might charge differently

There are three types of methods: strip harvesting, follicular unit extraction (FUE), and the older punch grafts technique. Each hair transplant method has its pros and cons.

What is Strip Harvesting or Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)?

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is the removal of an entire strip of hair. Hair follicles are individually harvested from the strip for placement on thinning areas.

This hair transplant was popular in the old days and has largely been replaced by other forms (like FUE) for a more painless procedure. FUT also inspired hair plugs, which look fake by today’s standards.

At our clinic, we do not use the strip harvesting method. It’s more painful and leaves a scar. However, it is usually a more affordable transplant procedure. It typically costs no more than $10 thousand.

What is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?

When considering the cost of hair transplants, FUE should be your second consideration. FUE hair transplant procedures move individual hair follicles from your skin.

Instead of taking entire strips, skilled hair surgeons use “micro punches,” which prevent noticeable damage. The result is a clean and realistic look with a full head of hair.

Given the greater attention to detail, this procedure is typically more costly. FUE hair transplant procedures usually cost $15 thousand but cost up to $30 thousand with larger-scale projects.

Do People Still Do Punch Grafts?

Hair plugs or punch grafts are an obsolete form of hair transplants. As a result, specialists no longer follow this technique.

There’s also no pricing discussion on this, as medical professionals do not follow this procedure.

Still, given the high price of this medical procedure, some people believe they can save money through overseas travel.

Can You Save Money on Hair Transplants By Going Overseas?

If you can get a hair transplant in Turkey or South America, it would roughly equate to the same price by the time you pay for travel. The days of traveling to find lower hair transplant prices are over.

Nowadays, technology has allowed surgeons to reduce the number of transplanted hairs needed in a procedure while maintaining great results. Prices have also decreased further now that robots can help.

How To Be an Informed Consumer of Hair Transplants

Hair transplant machines are super accurate and reliable. To keep our price at our fixed-rate at under $7,000, we let the patient choose. Do you want your transplant done by the robot, or do you want the FUE transplant done by hand?

Other clinics charge old prices and outdated procedures; it’s best for their bottom line. They draw in prospective patients with specials like “$x.00 per graft” or “$4,000 off.” The first question you should ask yourself is $4,000 off of what price?

If you don’t hire a clinic that prioritizes transparency, then sitting through a consultation can be like being hounded by a car salesman. We are changing the way hair restoration consultations are done. You know you’ll pay $6,995, no matter what. The consultation is to examine your hair and determine if you’re a candidate.

How Technology Has Impacted Hair Transplants

By now, you are aware of high hair transplant prices, and here is what you need to know: people had to pay higher fees for each graft because supply and demand were at play in determining the pricing. Fortunately, technology has improved drastically, and surgeons can reduce the number of hairs needed while still achieving great results.

That means that the price of a hair transplant is also reduced because robotic machines can do most of the work with little risk for error.

Are Machine-Assisted Transplants Right For Me?

Not everyone is a good candidate for robotic machines. Pale skin with blond hair or dark skin with black hair will require a physician to do the transplant. Skin that blends in with hair is impossible for most machines.

There’s also room for personal preference. Some people prefer the machine, and others prefer a clinician doing the transplant by hand. Because by-hand transplants take more time, they typically cost more money.
