Hair transplant cost and financing
How much a hair transplant will cost is very difficult to predict in advance since there are many factors that will affect the final price. Below you find an analysis of these factors.
Factors that affect hair transplant cost
- The choice of method for harvesting donor hairs – FUE or STRIP
- Quality of the donor hair – density, colour, thickness
- The size of the area to be treated/covered
- The quality of any existing hair growth in the area to be treated/covered
- The patient’s desires about hair density in the area to be treated/covered
In order to give an idea of the total cost, it should be mentioned that one treatment with the FUE method (8-16h) costs between £3,000 and £7,500. Bearing in mind, it may take more than one treatment to achieve the desired results the patient is looking for.
The cost of one treatment session with STRIP method (6-12h ) is normally between £1700-£4300. It is worth noting that – at least in the short term – it is often enough one treatment session since the STRIP method invovles a greater amount of hair follicles harvested and transplanted at the same time.
It may seem that the clinics have avery high hourly rate . However, one should keep in mind that a hair transplant engages many people and that the actual surgical procedure is only one part of the treatment.
