How Much Do Hair Transplants Cost

The skill of your surgeon: This is a common correlation: If your surgeon is considered to be one of the best, they may charge more. Still, higher rates don’t always mean superior skill, so you’ll want to do your research.

How Much Does a Hair Transplant Cost?

A hair transplant typically costs between $4,000 and $15,000, varying depending on the procedure and clinic. Insurance rarely covers the cost.

Plenty of products promise to increase volume or help you grow more hair. But most aren’t that effective.

The best way to add or increase hair to an area can be with a hair transplant.

But how much does a hair transplant cost? There’s not a clear-cut, simple answer. Treatment and recovery come at a price, and both have multiple factors that will affect the total cost of the transplant.

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure that takes hair from one area of the head to a bald or thinning area of the head. These procedures can restore hair on the scalp that’s been lost due to age, disease, or injury.

They can also improve the appearance of thinning hair or bald spots. Doctors may also recommend them as a treatment for alopecia, which causes hair loss.

Hair transplants are typically performed as an outpatient procedure, so you won’t need to stay in the hospital overnight. The surgery usually takes place in a doctor’s office or clinic and is between 4 and 8 hours.

During a hair transplant procedure, a surgeon takes hair from an area of the head that has good hair growth and transplants it to a thinning or bald area. Hair is usually taken from the back or sides of the head.

The cost of a hair transplant is highly variable and typically ranges from $4,000 to $15,000. These costs are often all out of pocket. Most insurance companies consider a hair transplant a cosmetic procedure.

The cost of hair transplants is dependent on many factors, including:

Where you live: The relative cost of living in the area and the number of nearby surgeons offering the procedure can affect what a surgeon charges.

The type of procedure you choose: There are two types of hair transplants: follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). Each has a different cost.

The skill of your surgeon: This is a common correlation: If your surgeon is considered to be one of the best, they may charge more. Still, higher rates don’t always mean superior skill, so you’ll want to do your research.

How much hair you want to be transplanted: Wanting a few patches added will cost significantly less than wanting to increase hair across the entire scalp.

Travel costs: This isn’t something your doctor will charge, but it’s a cost you’ll want to consider. Sometimes you have to travel to find the best specialists, and these costs could impact your decision on whether you can afford the procedure.
