Cost of Hair Transplantation
HAIR TRANSPLANT COST
Cost is the crucial factor that can affect your decision of undergoing hair transplantation. Many people believe that hair transplant is the most expensive treatment but the fact is that it is a beneficial investment for a fuller head of hair.
Clinics offering hair restoration services differ on the basis of procedures, quality and cost, so running behind only cheap hair transplants can be a wrong decision for restoring your looks , so there is need to understand the cost factor of this surgical procedure so that you can take a rational decision.
Cost of Hair Transplant in India is not fixed; it can vary from patient to patient according to the needs and expectations. The factors that can affect the hair transplant cost in India are;
- The extent of baldness
- Area to be treated during surgery
- Number of grafts to be extracted and implanted
- Number of sessions required for compete procedure
- Cost calculating policy of clinic
- Per graft cost variation
- Selection of clinic and surgeon for treatment and the reputation of the clinic
- Method applied for transplantation
- Technology used for surgery
- Additional treatment given like PRP THERAPY however some clinics offer one free session of PRP THERAPY
- Cost can be higher if the clinic also offers the financing facility according to the rate of interest charged
So it can be said that cost can vary according to individual’s requirement for instance if a patient has level 2 or above Norwood scaling baldness, then the cost of the treatment can be higher. For Norwood scaling of level 1 or 2 baldness, cost can be less whereas it can be higher for level 3 and it is calculated per graft.
For higher levels like 5 and 7, cost of treatment is calculated in lump sum so it can be higher according to cost calculation policy of clinic
In India, cost per graft is Rs 25-30 so in total it can vary from Rs 40,000- 80,000, depending upon this range generally clinics calculate the cost by multiplying the total number of grafts transplanted with cost per grafts.
However some other costs are also included in the total cost of treatment like
- Surgeon fee
- OT charges
- Accommodation charges
- Medications given
- Documentation or registration charges
- Some clinics also add consultation fee in total cost
- In few clinics, there are also some other hidden costs included in the total cost
Cost of treatment can be different for the different methods used for the transplantation surgery due to the difference in the basic method of shifting follicles from donor part to recipient as follows
Follicular unit transplant (FUT)
In this method surgeons extract the strip of hair bearing skin from the permanent zone of the scalp, generally taken from the back scalp. Strip of less resistant hair follicles is dissected in normal grouping of hair 1-4 and then transplanted in the bald portions according to requirement. In this method there is need to close with stitches the donor area after extraction
Follicular unit extraction (FUE)
In this method follicular units are picked and extracted individually from the donor part on the basis of best quality and then transplanted in the recipient area at adequate depth, distance and angle to give natural appearance to patient.
Generally clinics charge higher in case of FUE method.
