Average Prices for a FUE Hair Transplant Surgery
|Country||Hair Transplant (FUE)|
A graft refers to a piece of living tissue that is surgically moved from one body site to another, without bringing its own blood supply with it. After it is placed into the target site, a new blood supply will grow in. Hair follicles naturally grow in groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, known as follicular units. FUE hair transplant surgeons will aim to harvest and transplant hairs in their natural groupings to promote uniform hair growth. The surgeon will harvest each follicular unit (graft) with a hollow needle between 0.6mm and 1.0mm in diameter. Then, the surgeon will use microblades and fine needles to insert the grafts into the target sites, angling the grafts in a consistent pattern for a natural look and density.
There are several factors that contribute to the cost of a hair transplant surgery. Click on each title to expand for more details.
You are paying for specialist care. It’s wise to choose a hospital with surgeons that are highly specialized in, and who have an excellent reputation for performing the procedure. A good hair transplant surgeon should make patients aware of any possible complications and side effects that could arise from the treatment, and be available for you to contact if you have any questions or concerns once you’ve arrived back home. These professionals undergo specialist training and as such they may charge higher fees.
The number of grafts that you need for your hair transplant surgery will directly affect the price; the more grafts, the higher the final price of the treatment. Unless a surgeon or clinic offers a fixed price regardless of the number of grafts needed (as it often happens with our partner clinics in Turkey), the number of grafts will determine the final price.
There are different hair transplantation surgery techniques. The most commonly performed is the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure, where each follicular unit is transplanted one at a time. Other procedures include Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), or strip harvesting, that involves removing a strip of hair from the back of the head (donor area) and placing the units in the recipient area, and ARTAS, a robotic hair restoration system that automatically finds the best hair to harvest for transplantation. Once hair is harvested, it is then transplanted into the thinning areas.
Depending on the procedure chosen or recommended, the final price of the treatment may vary. Our Hair Transplant Guide gives a thorough overview of hair transplant surgery. Have a look to learn more about procedures, recovery time, and more!
The country, or city, where you will choose to have the treatment done will considerably affect the price. While in Australia prices can get as high as 16000€, more affordable options are available in countries like Turkey, Poland, Hungary, India, Thailand, or Mexico. Due to lower living and labour costs, prices are lower but the quality of medical care is not compromised.
