1. The number of grafts needed
This is one of the biggest factors that will affect the cost of a hair transplant. The number of grafts you need will depend on how much hair you’ve lost and what level of coverage you desire. For men who have moderate to sever balding and need their hairline to be rebuilt, the number of grafts needed will be higher when compared to men who need some filling in at the back.
2. The Clinic where you have your procedure done
Of course not all hair transplant surgeries charge the same rate for a procedure and the price you can expect to pay can vary a lot from one clinic to another. Generally the clinics that charge a higher rate will have very experienced surgeons and make use of the latest techniques.
3. The country where the surgery is performed
This is another big factor that will affect cost. There are many countries where you can get hair transplants carried out for a fraction of the price you’d find the US and Canada, however the practical considerations of getting to these countries often negates any benefits of money saved.
4. The number of sessions needed
Some clinics will charge by the number of grafts needed while others will charge by number of sessions. The number of sessions needed will depend on how many grafts are required for your transplant.
5. The experience of the doctor
The experience of the doctor performing your transplant is another factor that impacts costs. Typically the more experienced the doctor is, the higher the rate.
6. The distance you have to travel
If you choose to get your hair transplant that’s out of your city, or even in another country then the travel costs can soon mount up. You should always consider this, especially if your reason for travelling is to save money.
7. The technology used
A lot of clinics now make use of technology, particularly for the extraction process. This can sometimes affect the price of your surgery.
8. Insurance costs
It’s possible to get insurance to cover you in case you’re not satisfied with the results of your hair transplant but in truth this is usually an unnecessary cost if you get your procedure done at a reputable clinic.
A lot of surgeries will offer financing so you’re able to spread the cost of your transplant over a number of months or years. However, you’ll often find that you pay more overall when you use financing so this is something to bear in mind.
10. Aftercare Costs
After your surgery, you’ll be given a special shampoo and other items to help you with the aftercare. This is often included in the overall costs of your surgery but in some cases can be an additional charge.
