How much does hair transplant in Lahore Cost?
In Pakistan, all the major cities boast of surgeons who perform successful hair transplant procedures. In Lahore also, the field of cosmetic surgery is prospering and there are a few names that are acclaimed and esteemed for the level of services they provide. In contrast, the cost of hair transplant in Lahore is much less than that in any developed country while the surgery results are natural and equally permanent. The cost of a regular procedure ranges between Rs 70,000 to Rs 140,000. However, the method used for hair transplant also effects the final cost of the procedure. There are basically two methods used for hair transplant; strip harvest and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). While the strip harvest method involves removal of hair strip from a hairy patch, which is then dissected into smaller unites and planted on the bald patch, the FUE involves extraction of individual hair follicles that are planted on the bald patch. The cost of strip harvest is lesser since it does not require the same level of skills and expertise that are needed for FUE procedure. The surgeon not only requires a neat and observant mind but also needs to place the follicles in the natural pattern of existing hair. This skill is of course obtained with experience and it is a natural phenomenon that an experienced surgeon will of course charge according to the services provided. Apart from this, the individual cases that come at hand may vary and affect the final cost of the procedure.
Hair transplant procedures in Lahore cost many times lesser than anywhere in the world due to many factors. The competition among surgeons is one valid reason why the prices are lesser. Since there is an increasing demand and people are turning to hair transplant to restore their hair growth; the surgeons have to offer competitive prices in order to attract more patients. Secondly, the number of skilled surgeons is lesser and therefore they have to perform several procedures in a day and this means that the better their cost will be, the more satisfied a candidate will be. It is human nature to always assess whether the outcome was worth the price paid for it, and following this instinct, if the cost of the procedure is lesser, the patients leave the clinic satisfied and this in turn adds to the surgeon’s success. Lahore has become the hub of medical science and has a number of surgeons and clinics that have a large number of foreign patients. People travel from all over Pakistan and the world to seek treatment from these surgeons. It is only a proof that this is due to the cost-effectiveness of the procedure, while there is no compromise on the result. Many surgeons in Lahore provide follow up sessions that are free of cost, in order to ensure that the patient is fully satisfied with the treatment they get.
