    Hair Transplant Cost


    There are some things we try to fix with products, a certain shampoo, a certain workout regimen that will help you lose that last five pounds. Lifestyle changes can sometimes change your entire life if you take control over it. Some things about our appearance can be fixed with a little patience. However, others need a little more TLC from a skilled expert.


    It's no secret that many cosmetic surgeries are not covered by insurance since most of the time, they are elective surgeries that are not a medical necessity. When someone starts considering cosmetic surgery, so much research goes into finding the right surgeon, the right clinic and a cost you can feel comfortable with. You don't want to skimp on cost and end up with a inexperienced surgeon nor do you want to pay more than you are able to at another clinic. There are so many clinics and doctors offices that are all competing for you to choose them - but how do you decide if the surgeon is the right one for you? You want to be smart about cost, but it also should not be your only focus. With hair restoration surgery, for example, your options are endless.


    When researching the hair transplant cost, it's important to also learn about the advanced techniques, the type of clinic and the surgeon who will be performing the transplant. First is the technique. The most advanced of today are either the Strip Harvesting Technique or Follicular Unit Extraction. When you visit with the surgeon, they determine first if you are a good candidate for hair restoration, and then determine what technique will be used.


    The cost of hair transplant can range anywhere from $3,000 up to $12,000, depending on how many grafts you need and the technique. Some can get enough results for only one session, while others who are experiencing more overall total loss of hair need anywhere from 2 to 5 sessions, depending. The cost can tell you a lot about the clinic - keep this in mind. If you are in Nordwood stage 7 (nearly total loss of hair) and a clinic is telling you that you will see optimal results in only one session - the clinic is giving you unrealistic expectations of the results. Someone who has lost nearly all their hair except the donor hair in the back will not get maximum results from one session. Be weary of pushy sales tactics by clinics that are just looking to get you to swipe your credit card and are not looking out for your well-being or giving you the correct information about your hair restoration procedure and the cost of hair restoration.
