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)?

Costs of small hair transplant procedures

The real cost for the doctor is to set up the surgical facility and mobilize the appropriate staff. The cost for the doctor is fixed and will be the same if he perform 100 or 500 grafts so generally we charge a minimal fee of $3000 but at times we do reduce that fee when the surgical case is small

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.
