Hair transplantation is a highly specialized surgical procedure that relocates some of your existing hair from a donor site to areas of the scalp–called recipient sites–with thinning hair or no hair at all. The surgery generally takes four to six hours and is performed under local anesthesia in our office. Dr. Love excises a strip of skin 7 mm in width and 6-10” in length from the back of the head (donor site). This strip is then dissected into between 1,000 and 3,500 grafts (depending upon the patient’s needs). Each graft contains one to three hair follicles. These grafts are then planted into 16 gage needle holes into the designated recipient site of the scalp.
Hair transplant procedures are considered cosmetic in nature and are not covered by insurance. The surgery can range in cost from about $3,000 to $10,000, with the average procedure costing approximately $6,000 at about $3 per graft.
The other costs you can expect for hair transplants vary depending on:
- The amount of hair that needs to be transplanted. Part of the costs of a hair transplant procedure is determined per graft. Repairing just a few patches of thinning or balding hair will cost considerably less than restoring hair across the entire scalp.
- Post-procedure costs. To assist with your scalp’s recovery, you will be prescribed pain medication, antibiotics, or anti-inflammatory medication to reduce swelling in your scalp.
- Travel costs. The highly specialized nature of hair transplantation, as well as the lengthy procedure and mild sedation, means you may have to travel for the surgery. Be sure to take into consideration any travel or lodging expenses you may incur.
Your Hair Transplant Surgeon Matters
Hair transplant results that look and feel natural require attention to detail, aesthetic nuance, and technical expertise. Every single person’s hair is different and there is no one “standard” procedure. To ensure that hair transplants blend in seamlessly with your hair’s unique color, density, and appearance, grafts must be placed carefully and intentionally by a qualified surgeon with extensive surgical hair transplant experience.
