I am someone who currently is probably not the best candidate for a hair transplant but may be interested in the future if my pattern of loss continues. While the FUE procedure looks like a desirable option it is expensive for someone on my salary/budget. I’m curious about how much the cost of hair transplantation has gone down or up in the past and what that could mean for the affordability of hair transplants in the future. Also, I understand that the costs of hair transplants vary based upon the quality as well as other factors but Im wondering more from the perspective of the hair transplant industry as a whole. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!
Hair transplant pricing follow the rules of supply and demand. There are discounters who sell it for less and many of these discounters will not provide the same quality. Quality is defined by the percentage of grafts that really grow and the art of the distribution of the hair. Price ranges from follicular unit transplants range between $15 and $2/graft depending on where you live. FUE (follicular unit extraction), on the other hand, seem to have a slightly higher rate ranging from $20/graft to $7/graft. Because of the recession, prices have dropped. We have dropped our FUT (strip method) pricing by 20% to reflect the hard financial times in the economy. See our fees here.
