How Much Does A Hair Transplant Cost through The Foundation for Hair Restoration?

If the cause of alopecia (hair loss) stems form a genetic predisposition toward balding, or from an autoimmune disorder, then creams and topical remedies will have little or no effect. Therefore hair transplant procedures are one of the best solutions. This is done through individual hair grafts. Hair transplant costs are calculated based on the number of grafts required to cover the area affected. The more grafts, which may be done in mega sessions, the cheaper the overall price.

Average Hair Transplant Cost in the United States

The average hair transplant cost for a man suffering from alopecia will be between $3 to $10 per graft, which means that a total procedure may total around $10,500 to over $20,000. If that hair transplant cost is shocking, here’s some good news. Many hair transplant surgeons offer packages if you commit to more than 1000 grafts, lowering prices according to volume. In some cases, where a small patch of balding requires only a thousand or two thousand grafts, the total price may between $4,000 and $8,000.

What’s FUG, FUE and FUT?

When choosing a grafting or transplant specialist, what you’re looking for someone who will perform either follicular unit extraction, also known as FUE, or follicular unit grafting, abbreviated as FUG, which involves a donor strip and small incisions. FUE is done by means of removing a single hair and then implanting it elsewhere by a technique that punches the hair into the bald area on the scalp. Donor hair can come from different parts of the body not only the scalp. FUT stands for Follicular Unit Transplant where groups of hairs are transferred from one area to another instead of single hairs.

It’s estimated that the FUE grafting system may require as few as 2,500 hairs to cover an average bald spot on a male patient’s scalp. This may be done by dividing the 16 plus operating hours into two sessions.

The procedure you and your specialist choose will dictate how much the transplants will cost.
