Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' to a bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'.
Hair transplantation can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.
This surgical procedure, which takes several hours, involves local anesthetic to numb the scalp and removing a strip of hair follicles which are then dissected and implanted into small incisions made on the scalp. Most clients require at least two to three sessions. The time required to achieve complete growth ranges from 3 to 12 months.
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. Taking the time to discuss this with your surgeon and asking any questions you may have will allow to you select the best option for you.
Hair Transplantation Costs
Hair transplantation costs are not definite because each person's hair loss classification and amount of donor hair varies. Because every patient has a unique treatment recommendation depending on their hair loss, hair transplantation can often vary from $4,000-$16,000. To get the most accurate quote, please consult with your surgeon or the clinic prior to surgery.
Hair Transplantation and Health Insurance Coverage
Since hair transplantation is an elective cosmetic surgery, health insurance does not typically cover the cost. For patients who are looking to move forward with a procedure quickly, financing is available now.
