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.

Never Consider a “Cheap” Hair Transplant Procedure

Hair transplants will change you forever.  Depending upon where you live and the competition in that area, there’s a fair market value which is easily determined by calling around.

If you’re looking for a “cheap” procedure, what you may really be asking for is “cheap” results and this may be a truer reflection of your self image.  If this is the case, a hair transplant is not going to change this, and no matter what you pay will end up being money you’ll regret spending.

If you really think you need a hair transplant, then consult with a hair transplant physician - often, this initial consultation is free.  Should he find you a “good candidate”, then you’ll be required to pay a deposit and a one-time fee for the surgery.  This should include any and all post operative visits.  Should the quoted price be out of your price range, then it probably makes more sense to wait and to save the money, rather than falling into a “cheap” procedure, as your results may reflect what you pay.

Costs vary by region in the country and from country to country. It can be as low as 3$/graft for FUE but what is more important is the doctor you choose, not the price.  You can get affordable quality work but make sure to research your options.

Hair transplant ranges in cost depending on a number of factors, including the technique used and how much coverage you require. Some clinics charge by the hour, but most charge a dollar amount per graft, which can be as little as $5 per graft or as much as $12 per graft.


Keep in mind that hair transplantation is a permanent procedure you will have to live with for the rest of your life. You should never choose the surgeon who is “cheapest” but rather the one who is right for you. Such an investment should never be made on a compromise. Best of luck to you.
