Know The Numbers
The Cost of a Hair Transplant
At Nova Medical Hair Transplant, one of the most frequent questions we receive is, what does a hair transplant cost? It’s no surprise that those researching the option of a hair transplant want and need to know the numbers. Today’s minimally invasive hair transplant surgery offers faster recovery and can produce more natural-looking results than ever before. However, advanced technology and results available today come with a cost. The price of any cosmetic surgery is high compared with temporary and less effective alternatives. Often, people will try topical medications, shampoos and supplements with variable effects before finally seeking a permanent hair restoration option.
The cost of hair transplant surgery is not always easy to predict without in-person, in depth consultation. Each patient is different, and their aesthetic goals will be as well. A few different factors determine costs between individuals.
Amount Of Hair
One way that you can get a good idea about your procedure pricing is considering the amount of hair you want to transplant. Procedures which transplant a higher number of grafts typically cost more because hair transplant surgeons often charge per graft. 3,000 grafts transferred will therefore cost more than 2,000. However, the cost per graft may lower as the overall numbers increase, for instance, with the addition of each 1,000 grafts. This economy of scale makes larger jobs as cost-effective as possible for the patient.
Hair transplant procedures which move more follicular units also take longer than smaller sessions therefore based on the time required, your surgeon may charge more. For example, a 7-hour session would cost more than a 4-hour session in most cases.
