Hair transplants are surgical procedures that move hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' to bald or thinning areas of the scalp. When introduced, hair transplants used to cost a fortune. But as the technology advanced, the price of a hair transplant is reducing.
Hair transplantation is worth everything as it allows for natural-looking hair restoration.
What is a Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which hair is transplanted from elsewhere on the body to the balding scalp. The surgery is typically done in stages, with the first stage involving removing a small number of hairs from the donor area. These hairs are then placed individually on the balding scalp to create a natural-looking hairline. The second stage involves the transplantation of additional hair into the recipient area, and the final step consists of the re-growth of healthy hair on the balding scalp.
How Much Does a Hair Transplant Cost?
There is no definitive answer to how much a hair transplant costs. Prices vary based on the type of hair transplant, the surgical technique used, the location of the hair transplant, number of grafts, number of sittings, the experience of the surgeon, etc. Generally, a hair transplant will cost between a minimum of $600 to a maximum of $25,000, depending on all these factors.
The hair transplant costs are high in western countries and lower in Middle Eastern and Asian countries.
