Patients seeking a hair transplant in Manila, Philippines also benefit from the reduced cost when compared to similar procedures performed in the United States, but there is still a price variance to be expected based on the extent of the coverage desired and the type of procedure selected. A patient requiring extensive coverage who opts for the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure should expect a greater cost than a patient requiring minimal coverage using the same procedure. It is important to remember that a number of factors influence cost, but none more so than the total number of grafts required for providing sufficient coverage for areas of the scalp affected by baldness or thinning hair.
Of course, the FUT procedure tends to be the less expensive option when compared to the FUE procedure, but there are a number of other factors beyond cost that a prospective patient should consider before making any decision. For this reason and many others, it is always best to take advantage of the availability of a preliminary consultation in order to speak with a hair transplant surgeon regarding the best course of action based on the unique needs of the patient.
In Manila, prices generally range between P. 120,000 to P. 250,000 per procedure. Variance depends upon whether it is strip, FUE and no. of grafts.
