Hair Transplant Costs
Hair loss sufferers do not have to worry about hair loss any further. Now, there is a broad range of different hair loss treatments that can be undertaken to restore your hair.
Hair transplants can transform the life of those that undergo this kind of surgery, but for many, they are unsure about the cost of such a procedure.
Hair transplant surgery doesn’t have to be expensive. On the contrary, prices can vary depending on the patient and what they need from their surgery.
Typically, in the UK, hair transplant can cost around £3000 to £10000. Of course, this is largely dependent on the needs of the patient. After all, everyone has different needs when it comes to hair implantation surgery.Click Here to Book Your Free Consultation
There are typically three different types of hair transplant surgery that is undertaken with their respective prices:
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) (The Method We Recommend)
The FUE method of hair transplantation involves the removing of healthy hair follicles from the donor area. These are extracted from the scalp and grafted onto the balding areas, which ensures that the hair can grow, covering the areas that are problematic for the sufferer.
This kind of treatment is one of the most popular types of hair transplantation method in the UK. Typically, the price of FUE can vary depending on which clinic you use. What is more, the price is dependent on the extent of the hair loss problem and how much work is needed to rectify the hair loss issue.
Many hair loss sufferers can expect to pay around £5,000 – £6,000 for this procedure. Of course, this pricing is approximate as each patient will have different needs. As a general guideline, this kind of treatment will cost about £1.89 to £3.99 per graft/hair follicle. This is one of the most affordable kinds of transplant.Click Here to Book Your Free Consultation
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)
Hair replacement surgery can also be undertaken via the FUT method. This is where the hair is taken from a donor area and grafted onto the scalp in ‘strips’. This allows the hair to grow under the strips and can be a permanent solution to hair loss problems. As the donor region is healthy, the hair can grow back in its place.
The onset of FUE transplantation means that this kind of surgery is deemed more invasive, but it is a cheaper solution to hair transplant surgery. On average, this surgery can cost over £4,000 in total which varies depending on the extent of the surgery needed. The cost per hair follicle is around £2 to £5. We do not recommend this method as it leaves a large scar on the client’s scalp.
Direct Hair Implant Technique (DHI)
The DHI hair transplant technique is the latest in cutting edge hair transplant technology. With this new innovative technology, hair is encouraged to grow, this is done by extracting living hair follicles and implants them in the balding area.
This ensures that hair growth can be stimulated in the best possible way. This surgery can cost in the region of £6,000. Typically, the cost of this treatment per follicle is roughly £2 to £6.
It is very similar to the FUE method of hair transplant.
