Hair Transplant Cost
How much does a hair transplant cost? Questions about the cost of a hair transplant are one’s we receive frequently.There are a few determining factors that dictate the cost of hair transplant surgery. As each hair transplant surgery is distinctive from one patient to the next, the cost of hair transplant surgery will also vary for each individual.
The Amounts Of Grafts Required?
One of the elements that determine the cost of hair transplant surgery is the number of grafts that a patient requires to meet his or her hair restoration goals. For an individual requiring 2,000 grafts, the cost of their hair transplant surgery, will be less than a patient requiring 3,000 grafts.
Surgeries requiring a larger amount of grafts, consequently take longer than those surgeries requiring a lesser amount of grafts. Therefore, with more resources committed to the larger surgery, the cost of surgery is directly affected.
However, with larger sized surgeries, an economy of scale can be achieved reducing the overall average cost per graft. Such examples are displayed below in the graft cost calculator for both FUT ad FUE surgery types.
Cost Per Graft
Hair transplant surgery is typically priced at a cost per graft. A graft is a natural cluster or grouping of hairs (typically 1-4 hairs), also commonly referred to as a follicular unit. FUE hair transplant surgery (Follicular Unit Extraction) involves removing these follicular units individually, one at a time directly from the scalp using a special instrument, while FUT (strip surgery) involves removing a strip of tissue containing hair and then each follicular unit is removed individually from the tissue or donor strip thereafter. FUE hair transplant surgery is usually more expensive as the process of FUE surgery requires a greater amount of time to extract the grafts due to the tedious nature of the procedure.
How Do You Determine The Amounts Of Grafts Required?
The amount of grafts required for surgery is determined by a few factors. One of those factors is the size of the area or areas that require coverage. When looking at the size of the area that requires coverage, also taken into consideration is the texture of a patient’s hair. Patient’s, who have finer hair, often require more grafts to cover the same area than those that have coarse hair. Therefore, the cost of hair transplant surgery will be greater for those individuals with finer hair.
Once we have an idea of the amount of grafts that are required to provide the needed coverage, we then assess the donor area of the patient (the area of the head where the healthy hair is harvested from) to ensure that the amount of grafts needed are available. We take into consideration the laxity of the patient’s skin in the donor area and the length and the width of the strip required. Although a more accurate assessment of the laxity and width and length of the strip required is better attainable in person, at Hasson & Wong, we’ve viewed several thousands of hair loss photos submitted via our online consultation form, so our online assessments are fairly accurate. In some instances though after assessing a patient in person (after providing an assessment online), we discover we’re able to extract more grafts than originally believed.

Hair Transplant Cost VS Hair Transplant Results
Many prospective hair transplant patients gravitate towards hair transplant clinics offering a “Special” or advertising “The Lowest Hair Transplant Rates!” While we all love a good deal, it’s important to remember, that this is surgery. The quality of the surgery should always set precedence over price. In fact, more times than not, choosing price over quality ends up costing you more in the long run. Not just financially, but emotionally as well.
At Hasson & Wong, a good portion of our business is devoted to hair transplant repairs (repairing the work performed by other hair transplant clinics). In these cases, many of the patients were lured by cost and a great presentation. We urge you to do as much research as possible when selecting your hair transplant surgeon.
In the end, you’ll find in many instances we are competitively priced and even lower than some hair transplant clinics that cannot produce results that rival ours. We believe our pricing along with our industry leading results represent compelling value.
