Quick Guide: Hair Transplant Surgery Costs

Baldness in men can be solved through hair transplant surgery. In this modern world, a hair transplant procedure can be done in any country all over the world, but the price differs from one country to another. Here are the factors that can affect the price of a hair transplant session:

Severity of the baldness

One of the most important factors that affect the price of any hair transplant surgery is the amount of follicular grafts needed for the hair transplant procedure. Making an estimate of the follicle requirements for the grafting region is the most important part of the hair transplant process. Generally speaking, pricing is dependent upon the Norwood classification or Stage of Baldness which generally ranges between Type I to VII.


The two most commonly known hair transplant surgery procedures are Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), also known as the strip technique and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), also known as the no stitch, no scar procedure. A hair transplant procedure that will be performed by a highly experienced surgeon will likely be safer and more successful, but will most likely be more expensive than if it is done by a less experienced surgeon. The cost also varies by geography. In the U.S., hair transplant procedures cost anywhere between $8,000 to $15,000. In other countries, the cost could range between $3,500 and $8,000. However, you need to factor in travel and other costs. Also, it is desirable to have your follow-up care, if any, done in the same city where you have your hair transplant.


Most surgeons offer the conventional FUT technique for hair transplantation. A specialized clinic such as MAXIM Hair Restoration that is dedicated to hair transplants will offer a number of procedures depending upon the need of the client. FUE is increasingly in demand since there is no scar in the donor area at the back of the head. However, its more expensive. Some centers also offer robotic hair transplants and biofibre hair transplants. However, the outcome depends upon the quality of the surgeon and team that performs the procedure rather than technology.

Quality of the medical clinic

The amenities, the tools and equipment, and the kind of technologies at the clinic where the hair transplant surgery is done will affect the cost of the procedure. The patient should consider the benefits of going to a high quality medical clinic and compare it to the possible expenses he will shoulder for the treatment. It is recommended that clients choose a center or surgeon that is dedicated to hair transplants.


Since cosmetic procedures are usually not covered under a health insurance plan, the patient will need to shoulder the total cost of the hair transplant surgery. Most clinics accept credit cards.

Hair transplant surgery should not be taken lightly. You should make sure that the surgery is done by a professional, experienced surgeon at a reputable clinic. The cost of the hair transplant surgery should not be the utmost concern of patient, but the success and the safety of the procedure.
