Hair transplant cost: Is this the most important factor?

By Alex

When it comes to getting a hair transplant, or any medical procedure there is a lot of different things to consider. Most people will begin with looking at the price and in some cases, look around trying to find the cheapest clinic. But is cost the most important factor? We’re investigating this today.

The cost of a hair transplant?

The most popular question we receive is how much is a hair transplant? A question that unfortunately does not have a simple answer, there is not one single price tag we can put on a hair transplant as many different factors come into play.

Hair transplant cost will vary between patients and it can change dramatically depending on the number of grafts a person requires. The more grafts you need the more the hair transplant will cost. The amount you pay per graft can differ from clinic to clinic and you can pay anywhere between £4-£10 per graft.

At the Harley Street Hair Clinic, we have a few different tools to help you work out the cost of your hair transplant before you even visit the clinic. You can use our graft calculator to get an estimate of how many grafts you’ll need transplanted.

Once you know how many grafts you need transplanted you can take a look at our cost structure, this will give you an estimated cost for your transplant. If you would like an accurate cost the best thing to do is visiting us at the clinic for a consultation.

What other factors should I consider?

We understand that cost is a major factor when it comes to getting a cosmetic procedure, but we think there are other factors that you also need to consider before making a decision if you should go ahead with your hair transplant and where to get the transplant done.

Although a hair transplant seems like a lot of money it is important to remember that this is a one-off cost when you compare this to a lifetime of hair loss medications, hair pieces, and even hair restoration shampoos the prices over time will begin the even out. A hair transplant is the most permanent hair restoration treatment available and this should be considered when thinking about the cost.

We also think it’s important to consider the quality and service you will receive from a reputable clinic in the UK. Going abroad for a hair transplant can seem very appealing as it’s a cheaper option, however, not all clinics in foreign countries offer the same quality or even the same revolutionary procedures that you can find here in the UK.

What is the most important factor when getting a hair transplant?

There is not one single important factor to considering when getting a hair transplant, it’s important to consider a number of different things.

However, we believe one of the most important factors to consider is that your donor hair is a finite resource. The hair found at the back and side of the scalp that is used for a hair transplant is a valuable resource, and if the hair transplant procedure is not done correctly it could result in you needing further transplants to fix it.

Having to have further hair transplant procedures can become difficult as there will be less donor hair available. The key to a natural looking hair transplant is ensuring enough hair is transplant from the donor area to ensure the top of the scalp is fuller, but also, to ensure the donor area itself still has enough hair to look natural and blend in – something that can become difficult after multiple transplants.

It’s very important to spend a lot of time researching clinics you’re interested in, this way you’ll get a feel for what clinic is offering the best service and treatment for you.
