FUE graft cost
It depends on the part of the country. I have seen $3-$6 per graft. What really matters is experience. You want a place that is busy and has experience.
Cost of FUE
The cost can vary but we tend to charge between 6-8$ per FUE and between 3-4 for strip grafts. I think patients should focus on the talent and experience of the surgeon more than the cost as the results are dependent on the doctors experience.
Cost of FUE
Consider non surgical methods such as Rogaine for now. There are many methods of hair transplantation. Wanted them RFUE and another can be a surgical flap. Grafts can be taken with as few as one hair follicle or multiple follicles. The quality of the hair, the number of follicles per unit and the location in which the hair is to be placed are all important determinants in the final result. While it is a common misconception that hair can and should be taken from any location, taking appropriate hair from an appropriate location is key to success. For instance, one cannot always use hair from a beard to replace a frontal hairline. The orientation in which Harris placed is also important. If the frontal hairline is being created then it is important to make sure that hairs are aligned in the correct orientation. The way the hair is also laid down, for example a staggered pattern versus a straight line will also change the quality of the result. You should certainly visit with a surgeon who does many of these types of transplantations as well as offers multiple options for hair restoration. The cost can vary by geographic locale. In general they can arrange from $7000-$25,000. When you go over consultation ask for before and after photographs.

Cost and Price for FUE Hair Transplantation
The cost of FUE hair transplantation is between $6-8 per graft compared to $4 per graft using the FUT or strip method. Both procedures have pros and cons. Look for a well qualified surgeon with experience. I like to offer a personalized approach to hair transplantation were I am involved in every step of your experience, including the consultation, procedure, and postoperative care.
Cost of FUE Transplant
Any type of hair transplant totally depends on the number of hair transplants being performed. Typically less grafts can be transplanted using the FUE method at any single session.
Cost of FUE
any where from 5-12 dollars per graft. I like the FUE approach for cost effectiveness since we harvest naturally occurring follicles. Example- 4 hair follicle = 1 graft vs splitting a 4 hair follicle with strip method into 4 grafts.

It depends on how many grafts you would need ultimately. It could be 3000 or 20,000 multiplied by the cost of each graft which varies from surgeon to surgeon. You should also look into the Fleming-Mayer Flap, which transfers the hair is a solid piece, not blade by blade.
