Dr. Robert Jones Price Comparison with other doctors for FUE
The selection process
For the exercise of comparing prices, after thoroughly researching all options available, two other physicians were selected. After consultations with each, the first only offered the follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) procedure. The other did both, but for FUE, offered several sessions of 400-500 grafts per day and the cost per graft is much higher than Dr. Jones charges. Due to Doctor Jonesí extensive experience with the FUE procedure, he is able to extract 1800 FUE grafts in 2.5hr. An entire procedure of 1800 FUE grafts takes about 7.5 hours.
Consultations and customer support
Another thing to note is that at other consultations, you may not actually meet a doctor. Everything may be handled by sales people who, in many cases, have had a hair transplant procedure. However with Dr Jones, you will deal with Dr. Jones himself. Nothing can replace the feeling of assurance, knowing that you are dealing directly with the person who will be performing the procedure. Even after the procedure is completed, you can contact Dr. Jones directly, to ask questions.
During the procedure, the only pain experienced is the initial pin prick of the needle for the local anesthetic. After that, the procedure is quite comfortable. After the procedure, you will be given a prescription for Tylenol 3 and anti-inflammatory pills. However, after the first day, you may not need the pain-killers
FUE hair transplants are the future of hair transplant surgery. However, with other companies which are less experienced with the FUE procedure, you may be lead to believe that it is an unattainable or extravagant procedure, with regards to both cost and duration. Dr. Jonesís ability to provide the state-of-the-art procedure, at a reasonable cost, speaks directly to his research and experience with the procedure, and his ability to refine his technique and skills.
