What determines the price of head hair transplant?

The cost of hair transplant may vary depending on:

  • The prestige of a medical institution - in clinics with a higher level of comfort and technical equipment, treatment with the same method will cost much more than in less well-known clinics;
  • The image of the center in which the treatment is carried out - the better the image of the clinic, the higher the cost of transplantation;
  • Patient gender - the cost of transplanting one tissue site containing living hair follicles is practically independent of gender. However, after the onset of the first symptoms, women in most cases seek medical help almost immediately, which allows starting treatment at earlier stages of the disease;
  • Transplant area - the more extensive hair transplantation is required, the more grafts will be needed for its implementation and, as a result, the higher its cost. It should be noted that many clinics, when transplanting more than 1 thousand grafts, can significantly reduce the cost of the procedure;
  • Number of transplants - as mentioned above, the more hair follicles need to be transplanted, the higher the cost of transplantation;
  • Method used - The number of grafts used for transplanting at a site of the same size may vary depending on the technique used.

Hair transplantation method affects cost

Hair transplant cost depends on the method

It should be noted right away that a hair transplant operation is, first of all, a low traumatic and highly effective intervention that allows you to fully or partially restore the lost hair. The implantation itself is performed by professionals, based on several proven therapeutic methods. The most commonly used are HFE, FUE and FUT techniques. They are relatively similar in nature to transplant and differ significantly in price. To answer the question "how much does hair transplant cost?" each method needs to be studied in more detail.

HFE

One of the safest ways to completely restore lost hair. Its essence lies in the collection of hair material and implantation into a specially prepared area. One of the proven advantages of this technique is completely manual implantation, which avoids the appearance of aesthetic defects in the area of donor material collection.

FUE

An innovative technique consisting in the semi-automatic transplantation of donor material, performed using a specialized device - a small drill with a motor. Donor material is essentially a piece of tissue with a diameter of one and a half to five millimeters. Immediately before the intervention, the transplanted fragment is divided into pieces, one millimeter at a time. One piece should contain up to five hair follicles.

The transplant is performed manually by placing the donor material into a micro-incision made with a scalpel at the transplant site. The downside of FUE is that small scars from incisions remain in the area of material collection and transplantation.

FUSS

It differs from other techniques by the method by which the donor material is taken, the receipt of which is carried out by removing a tissue layer (containing a large number of living hair follicles), followed by crushing it into separate fragments (grafts). The transplant is performed on an outpatient basis, under local anesthesia. The method has one, but a very significant drawback, namely a long scar in the area of material sampling.

High invasiveness makes the method one of the cheapest and most widespread. Currently considered obsolete.

Stage of baldness affects pricing

Stages of male pattern baldness

Transplantation for men may be necessary in case of baldness, which develops because of hormonal changes or hereditary predisposition.

Naturally, the price of hair transplant in men directly depends on the stage of the pathological process, which is divided into three stages: I (baldness in the frontotemporal zone), II (the appearance of triangular hairless areas) and III (hair loss in the parietal zone).

For each of these stages, a different number of grafts will need to be transplanted during the operation, therefore, transplantation for baldness in the first stage will cost much less than in the third stage.

How much does hair transplant cost in women?

Hair transplant for women

Hair loss in women follows a different algorithm than in men. For example, the first signs of female baldness are fragility of hair and a decrease in their density in the parting area. The reasons for its occurrence are also different; in women, baldness is provoked not only by hormonal or hereditary factors, but also by improper care, adverse weather conditions or mechanical injuries.

As for the hair transplant operation itself in women, it is performed using the same technologies and for the same reasons as in men. Therefore, the cost of hair transplant for women at the same stage will not differ.

The cost of the operation in different countries abroad

The cost of a scalp hair transplant varies depending on the country, the level of the transplant center, the qualifications of the trichologist performing the procedure, the area of baldness, accomodation and the chosen method.

Approximate cost of treatment in:

  • Germany - the approximate cost of an operation in this country is seven thousand euros;
  • Spain - on average, transplantation will cost from three to seven thousand € and more;
  • Turkey - hair transplant in this country will cost much less than in Europe. The minimum cost of treatment is one and a half thousand dollars, and the maximum is about three and a half thousand.
