How Much Does NYC FUE Cost?

Leading Hair Transplant Clinic in NYC

In New York, many men and women are excited about the hair transplant industry’s latest innovations.

FUE, (Follicular Unit Extraction) offers more natural looking results and faster recovery than hair transplants of the past. However, the cost of NYC FUE treatments still reflect the reality that this is a cosmetic surgical procedure, and permanent results come with a higher price tag. It can be confusing to figure out what your hair transplant procedure fees will be, and whether the treatment is a worthwhile investment for you. Here, we’ll break down the cost of NYC FUE so you can plan your own hair transplant transformation.

In most cases, people can expect their individual hair transplant price to be personalized, because each person’s hair loss and transplant needs are unique. The pattern of hair fallout, the density of remaining hair and the goals you have for your procedure will determine whether you choose to have 500, or even 3,000 grafts transplanted.

Per Graft Fees

The majority of surgeons will price their procedures based on per graft fees. The number of grafts transplanted and charged for will depend on a few different factors. One, is the size of the recipient area on the scalp. FUE hair transplant technology can work wonders for subtle areas like patchy facial hair, covering scars or filling in receding hairlines. These smaller fixes require fewer grafts to make a big impact. The texture of a person’s hair is also a cost consideration because fine, pale hair typically requires more grafts to fill in an area.

Luckily, many surgeons decrease the cost per graft when the amount reaches certain increments, such as, per 1,000 grafts. This can make transplanting a high number of grafts more economical for those patients who need it, though their overall costs will still be higher than those who transfer fewer hair follicles.

NYC FUE & FUT Hair Transplant Costs

FUE is time consuming and meticulous, requiring long hours of focus and delicate graft handling by your surgeon.

Each, individual follicular unit is removed one by one with a punch tool, then carefully implanted to recipient sites. Because of the tedious nature, NYC FUE costs are usually higher than FUT or, strip method hair transplants.

The most sophisticated the technology and practice, the higher overhead costs will be and those fees are passed on to the patient. As well, expect to pay a bit more for hair transplant surgery with a renowned practitioner who has a wealth of experience and a great reputation. Prices vary between locations and it can be well-worth it to visit a number of different clinics when deciding what hair restoration procedure is best for you.

At Nova Medical Hair Transplant, we recommend that you schedule a complimentary consultation and visit with your hair transplant surgeon in person. The best way to determine what you should expect your procedure cost to be is to find out what you need and learn what’s possible through the procedure.

1. How to Pick the Right Surgeon?

At Nova Medical Hair Transplant, we believe your confidence begins with your comfort. You can feel free to schedule complimentary consultations with more than one NYC hair transplant expert and ask critical questions to make the best choice. A hair surgeon with not only extensive experience but a sense of artistry and in-depth knowledge of hair is essential. Your surgeon will craft a unique plan for you —your existing hair, and your future locks. Many people don’t consider that progressive hair loss means their future results could look different.

Because FUE is a repeatable procedure, undergoing more than one can help you maintain your look in the long run, but you’ll need to partner with an expert who has a long-term plan for you too. Ask them how they’ll ensure you have natural results still in 10 years. Ask them about their post-operative follow-up schedule and what you can expect from their support and their staff during your recovery. You’ll be in contact many times over the next year as you patiently watch your new hair grow in, and you should feel entirely comfortable sharing your concerns and celebrations with the surgeon you choose.

2. Does the Procedure Hurt?

While not described as “pleasant,” NYC hair transplants are usually described as “not too painful.” If you’re expecting to be bedridden and medicated, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Modern FUE procedures are minimally invasive. They’re designed to be a-traumatic, and in the hands of a skilled surgeon, you can count on a relatively comfortable and fast recovery.

During the hair transplant, your scalp will be numbed with an injectable anesthetic. Most people report feeling achy from lying still during long sessions, more than due to their scalp.

Your hair surgeon will likely prescribe pain medication or advise you about over the counter anti-inflammatories you can take. Be sure to ask first because some medicines lead to unwanted bleeding. You might experience itching, and it’s essential that you don’t scratch, so use topical, soothing solutions or medication provided by your surgeon.

One sure way to decrease discomfort and heal faster is to keep your head propped up. Avoid bending over or lying flat, and you’ll prevent unpleasant blood pressure increases in your scalp.

3. How Long Before My Hair Starts to Grow?

You may have guessed already; NYC hair transplants are not instant. You’ll need plenty of patience, but it helps to know what timeline to expect. After your FUE, new hairs will start sprouting up between 3 to 4 months post-op in most cases.

A few crucial points to take note of if you want to avoid disappointment:

The transplanted hairs will probably fall out. Don’t be alarmed, but the way your hair looks at first is temporary. The transplant process causes shock loss, and each little follicle usually sheds the hair within it to make way for new ones. This can be disturbing if you’re not prepared, but we assure you—new hairs are on their way!

Another point to take note of is that the initial hair growth may appear wispy, sparse or stick out at odd angles. It takes several months for full thickness to grow in and sometimes more than a year before hair will take on natural direction and style.

If you want to ensure the fastest healing and fuel new growth, talk to your hair surgeon about PRP for hair.

4. Are the Results Permanent?

Asking about the permanence of your investment is smart. Your NYC hair transplant results should be very long-lasting once hairs have grown in. Throughout the natural life of a follicle, the new hairs are expected to have permanence.

Your surgeon will harvest follicle grafts from the back and sides of your head. First, they’ll examine you carefully to determine where the thickest, most robust growth is. Those hairs make ideal transplant grafts because they’re naturally DHT resistant. While the strands on your crown and hairline shed due to genetic pattern hair loss, most men have hair at the back, which resists the hormone responsible for fallout. Those strong roots retain their resilient properties in the new location.

Once your hair grafts are healed and new hair is growing strong, you can feel free to cut, style, shampoo and treat that hair as you usually would.

Pro tip: You may notice ongoing hair loss as your native follicles continue to shed over time. This depends on your hair loss progression and when you choose to intervene. Hair loss can be unpredictable, and if new areas of thinning appear, talk with your surgeon about plans for maintenance FUE.

5. How Much Time Do I Need Off Following My Procedure?

Of course, you can take all the time you need! Some people plan to get back to work and life as soon as possible after an NYC hair transplant. In most cases, this is possible after just 3 to 5 days, depending on what your job entails.

You’ll need to avoid direct scalp contact and a few activities such as workouts or swimming. We recommend allowing yourself at least a few days at home to rest, but busy go-getters find the recovery from FUE doesn’t hold them back much.

If you prefer the utmost discretion, you may want to wait a couple of weeks until all signs of redness and small scabs have faded. Some people choose to work from home or take a short vacation to heal their scalp and all signs of surgery before returning to social lives.

After your hair transplant, you can cover your head with a soft, wool hat, and this is especially convenient during fall and winter. Your new hair won’t grow in until roughly four months post-op so for a few months; you’ll look just like your usual self.

Those who choose FUE hair restoration will have tiny, pale dots for scars instead of a long, FUT incision. It’s easy to hide the donor marks as soon as the hair grows in roughly 1 cm.
