How ASG Hair Transplant Centre breaks down the Cost of Hair Transplant
The question about the cost of a hair transplant is automatic when it comes to hair transplant procedures. There are different techniques and so the procedures which make hair transplant costs complicated at times for some patients. FUT and FUE are two main techniques utilized by the surgeon to carry out a hair transplant. Nevertheless, a hair transplant cost will also be determined by the number of sittings required and the grafts needed.
Considering the leading hair transplant centre (ASG), different aspects are looked at before the procedure. During an examination, the surgeon at the leading centre is able to calculate the number of hair follicles needed and more than 3000 hair follicles can be extracted in one session.
FACTORS CONSIDERED WHILE DETERMINING THE COST OF A HAIR TRANSPLANT
While calculating the cost of a hair transplant, the following factors are considered at ASG hair transplant centre and perhaps in other centres.
- The type of the technique
Basing on the fact that FUE is an advanced hair transplant technique; its cost is always more elevated than the FUT technique. This is regardless of the country visited or the clinic.
- The extent of baldness
Normally grade III & IV require less grafts and that means that one will spend less cash on extraction and their implantation. Any baldness level beyond this level automatically exaggerates the cost than the normal.
- Means of extraction
The Robotic way of extraction is an advanced procedure where hair grafts are extracted by a robot. This is done in more advanced clinics since the technology is extremely expensive and requires large expertise.
- Cost per graft extracted
We charge a favorable amount per cost extracted and that only goes around RS.30. Other factors like the nature of the hair and the complications to watch out for while extracting the hair follicles can hike the cost per graft going to RS.50 or more.
THE COST AS PER THE TYPE OF HAIR TRANSPLANT TECHNIQUE
FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT COST
Follicular unit extraction is a minimally invasive procedure where a micropunch of 0.7mm or 1mm is used to extract individual hair follicles from the donor area which may be the scalp or the rest of the body, such as the chest, beards and the legs. Let’s look at the possible cost:
|NO. of hair grafts||Cost per graft||Service Tax||Total cost||In case of extra charges|
|1000 and less||RS.40||RS.5000||RS.46,000||RS.5,000|
The hair follicles can also be extracted and implanted in different sittings in case of extreme baldness where more hair follicles are required.
FUT HAIR TRANSPLANT COST
The follicular unit Transplantation is also known as the strip method and the hair follicles are extracted in the form of a strip. The strip is dissected to achieve individual hair follicles, which are implanted into the tiny incisions in the bald region. Let’s have an overview of the FUT cost.
|Strip/ No. of grafts||Extraction charges||Dissection Charges||Service Tax||Total cost||In case of extra charges|
|1000 and less||RS.10,000||RS.20,000||RS.5,000||RS.35,000||RS.3000|
|In case of more grafts||A new plan is devised||Body hair transplant may be considered|
BODY HAIR TRANSPLANT
Body hair transplant is a procedure performed using the FUE technique. During the session, hair follicles are extracted from the body to the scalp or from the scalp to the facial regions to correct the eyelashes, eyebrows, mustache or achieve a fuller beard. The cost of body hair transplant normally goes between RS.50, 000 to RS.80, 000 depending on the region to be worked upon.
ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT
A robotic hair transplant is simply a procedure performed by a robot. In some clinics, the robot only extracts hair follicles under the observation of the surgeon whereas in others, the robot will extract the hair follicles and as well implant them. Since it is an advanced procedure aimed at achieving perfect results, one must expect to spend more than 1 lakh to get this particular procedure. In other cases a discussion is vital with the surgeon for a reduction in the cost.
Should you choose a hair transplant clinic basing on the cost alone?
Absolutely no! Though it is to a patient’s advantage that he or she gets an opportunity to get a hair transplant, let not the charges in at any centre be the most important factor. Other factors have to be considered such as;
- The surgeon’s artistry, aesthetic skills, experience, and results
- The norms at the clinic- the clinic must be of a good standard
- Are the technicians or surgeons hired or full-time surgeons at the clinic?
Much as one wants to eradicate that bald, consider the possible results at a certain centre to live the coming years satisfied with the results or otherwise.
