Men and women alike, anybody and everybody who suffers from hair loss problems or genetic baldness opt for this kind of surgery. Apart from hair loss, in case of any accidental scars or illnesses that cause serious hair fall that results in baldness or an unpleasant look due to lack of hair; people turn to hair transplant surgeries. The cost of hair transplant surgery has seen a downward trend during the recent past. This is primarily due to an increase in the number of clinics and medical centers offering hair transplant. Since there is a greater demand for hair transplant, the competition among doctors has also increased. Due to this competition, there is a better chance for candidates to get a hair transplant procedure at a competitive cost. The surgeons performing this kind of an intricate procedure need to be skilled and experienced and due to this the cost of the hair transplant procedure is not too less. However, the candidate must keep in mind that in order to improve their look and get rid of baldness, they have to entrust their appearance to a surgeon and therefore the surgeon’s skills and expertise are worth a lot. The cost of hair transplant depends on a few factors, such as the surgeon’s skills, clinic environment and facilities and the type of hair transplant required. Many individuals want drastic results while some require lesser amount of hair to cover their head. This is of course in proportion to the cost of the procedure. Normally, surgeons charge according to the number of grafts planted. If there are only 1,000 grafts planted, the cost will naturally be lesser than a procedure that involved transplantation of around 3,000 grafts.
There are two methods of hair transplant; Strip harvesting and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). The strip harvesting method is cheaper since it involves the removal of a strip of hair from an area of dense hair growth. Then this strip is further dissected and planted on to the bald patch. The FUE method involves extraction of individual hair follicles that are transplanted on to the bald area, using individual incision instead of pasting. The FUE method, if used during surgery, is much more expensive than strip harvesting because it involves a greater level of care and expertise on the surgeon’s part. Plus the amount of work involved in this surgery is more and it gives much better results than strip harvest. Strip harvest leaves a mark on the donor area, where staples are used to stitch the wound from strip removal. The overall cost of a hair transplant ranges from Rs75,000 to Rs140,000 depending on the amount of grafts, number of sessions and surgical skills.
