Have you ever wondered why some hair restoration clinics offer much cheaper surgeries than others? In this blog, we explore what is factored into the price of a hair transplant and why some clinics charge so much less than others.
Your Hair Restoration Needs
One of the main factors that determines the cost of hair transplant surgery is your individual needs. The number of grafts needed will depend on how advanced your hair loss is. When more grafts are needed, the surgery will take longer to complete and the cost will be higher.
Type of Surgery
There are two main types of hair transplant surgery in use today: Follicular Unit Transplant FUT and Follicular Unit Extraction FUE. Both of these methods offer excellent, natural-looking results, however FUE tends to be slightly more expensive. This is because of the difference in extraction method. For FUT, a strip of hair follicles is removed from the back of the head and divided into grafts for transplant. For FUE, individual follicles are harvested using a micro-punch, which requires somewhat more skill and precision than FUT.
A Quality Clinic
Running a hair transplant clinic to the highest standards involves considerable investment, which is another factor that affects the cost of the treatment. A good quality clinic will have state of the art medical equipment and be fully insured and registered, as well as paying fair wages that honour their employee’s time and expertise.
Cheap Hair Transplant Surgeries
With every passing year, there are more clinics offering heavily discounted hair transplant surgeries. Though their offers might sound tempting, such low prices should ring alarm bells. The clinic may be reducing their costs by employing inexperienced staff, using poor quality equipment, being under-insured and not following proper safety practices. Such clinics are putting their clients at risk of infection, scarring and worse.
