Hair Replacement Surgery
Hair loss and hair thinning affect approximately 60 million men and women in North America. The most common hair loss is male pattern baldness, which is also known scientifically as androgenic alopecia. Until recently, there were only temporary solutions to hair loss.
Today however there are numerous hair replacement surgical procedures available, but generally most surgeries are performed whereby hair is moved from the back and/or sides of the scalp, where the hair is permanent (donor area), to areas that are thinning or bald on the front, top, or crown of the scalp (recipient area). Once transplanted, the hair will continue to grow for a lifetime.
Hair specialists can use any of several different techniques to fill in balding areas.Surgical hair replacement techniques including punch grafts, mini-grafts, micro-grafts, slit grafts, and strip grafts will result in a more modest change in hair fullness. Flaps, tissue-expansion and scalp-reduction are procedures for patients who desire a more dramatic change.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) are considered by most hair replacement surgeons to be the most modern and state-of-the-art hair transplant techniques available today.
Hair Replacement Cost
Hair replacement costs can vary widely depending on the surgery chosen, the amount of hair loss you have experienced, and the fullness or look you desire. Every patient has a unique treatment recommendation depending on their hair loss and so costs can vary from $4,000-$16,000. To get the most accurate quote, please consult with your surgeon or the clinic prior to surgery.
When choosing a clinic or doctor, remember that the their experience and how comfortable you feel with them is just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
Hair Replacement and Health Insurance
Typically most private health insurance and government health plans will not cover hair replacement surgeries, related medications or other procedures to alter the appearance of your hair line.
