Hair Transplant Costs: How Much Will It Set You Back?

You’d be forgiven for thinking that hair transplant operations can only be afforded by the super rich, especially when you read stories about the likes of Robbie Williams and Wayne Rooney undergoing the procedure.

Hair transplants, however, aren’t as expensive as some people think – the price you pay will usually depend on the extent of your hair loss, and the intensity with which you want to replace lost hair. Many of our clients come back to us to say that their hair transplant has been money well spent, the treatment that we provide can help to restore the natural hairline – and in some cases it can stop hair loss altogether. We know what it takes to achieve results with our hair loss patients, and that’s why we have such a good reputation for delivering a straightforward service to our clients.

Demand for hair transplant operations has spiralled recently – with a 260% increase in the number of men enquiring about hair transplant surgery. There has also been a huge surge in the number of men willing to travel abroad to undergo hair transplant surgery – the figures are up 180%. Although traveling overseas for the procedure is often seen as a cheap way of combating the problem of hair loss, once you factor in the cost of air tickets and accommodation, it’s often cheaper to remain in the UK for the treatment. Other factors to consider include regulation of drugs and medical professionals in overseas countries – not every country has a controlled system in place like the UK where only approved drugs and individuals can carry out the procedure for the safety of patients.

The actual cost of your transplant will vary according to a range of factors. Typically, hair transplant surgery costs anything from £2,000 to £10,000 or more. There are two types of hair transplant surgery for consideration: FUE and FUT.

FUE stands for follicular unit extraction and involves taking healthy groupings of hair from elsewhere on your body and transplanting them to areas on your scalp where you’ve experienced hair loss. After just a few months the transplanted hair should grow normally – this kind of treatment doesn’t lead to permanent scarring and is usually carried out in just one session.

FUT stands for follicular unit transplantation and it’s a procedure where naturally occurring units of hair are transplanted in groups of one to four. This transplant procedure is often favoured because once complete, hair grows naturally and it’s virtually impossible to tell that the hair has been transplanted.

Many men turn to hair transplant surgery because there are no drugs or other cures proven to bring back lost hair. Although some drugs available can halt or slow hair loss, there are currently no drugs that allow men to regrow hair.
