Had a Small Hair Transplant, it is Not Dense Enough. How Much Will it Cost to Make More Dense (Maybe 100 or 200 Follicle Units)?

You had one surgery so you should know how much you paid. Second surgery will likely be the same.

Re: Hair Transplant Cost

The cost of each graft is around $5-$12, depending on the doctor. Make sure you are clear about what is covered in the price per graft figures that you receive from various service providers. In other words, is the figure all inclusive, or are there additional fees? Ask about price points such as: consultation fees, post surgery medication, follow up visits and anesthesia

More transplants

Unless you are dealing with an area the size of a half dollar, 200 grafts will do very little

Hair Transplant Density

Hair transplant Density doesnt fully develop right away.  It can take a year to see the full effects of the transplant.  I would not rush into a touch up before then.  Small cases of 200 FU can range from 3.5/g to 12/g depending on the region of the country.   Of course, alwayd discuss with your doctor who did the hair transplant.
