Hair transplants are typically priced by the graft in North America. The average graft across the country contains 2.2 hairs and can range in price from $3 to $9. It is important to note that some clinics separate a large number of grafts into one hair grafts to increase the price of the procedure. Although there is a need for one hair grafts in certain areas to create a natural look, too many single hair grafts can drive up the price of your hair transplant! Nationwide, prices can range from $3,800 – $20,000 per procedure depending on the surgeon, technique employed and size of the procedure.
Some clinics, including the PAI Medical Clinics, price by the Level or number of hairs. We feel like this is a more straight forward honest approach. Although its important to use single hair grafts in the right places, we also feel that there are times when keeping hairs together in their naturally growing bundles results in a better looking more natural result. Additionally with our unique Multi-unit Grafting™ procedure we can transplant more hairs per procedure than most clinics across the country minimizing the number of procedures needed.
Why is minimizing the number of procedures important? By minimizing the number of procedures needed, you minimize your overall cost, your time away from work and overall recovery time. Our Multi-unit Grafting™ and Mega Sessions are efficient ways to accomplish this.
Transplants have a cost per hair, or graft. If the clinic still charges by the graft, be sure and find out how many hairs will be transplanted. Then you can easily calculate the cost per hair. While cost / price is an important part of making your decision, it’s not the only one. Quality of work is the most important part of your investment decision. Since hair transplants are permanent, you want to be sure you invest in a hair restoration surgery you’ll be proud of – not ashamed of. After all, whether it’s a good hair transplant or a bad hair transplant, in either case it’s permanent!
The best way is to call or visit our clinic and speak with us about your particular situation. Your overall hair restoration goals need to be discussed in detail. Also, an examination of your donor hair is recommended to better determine your overall candidacy for hair restoration surgery. If you are not able to come in for a full analysis and consultation, we recommend you send pictures of the areas of hair loss as well as profile and a picture of the back of the head. While many patients today are hair restoration candidates, some are not.
