Why Hair Transplant is Expensive?

Hair transplant is a very special and experience required process and also costs are high because it is expensive. In other words, Hairplant is expensive because it is a medical procedure that requires special experience and very special team and all of it is hand made.

As you’ve researched the hair transplant in several clinics, you may find that none of them offer cheap price rate for the procedure. There was a time when hair transplant procedure is considered to be an exclusive one. The truth is everybody can take their own hair transplant procedure. Hair transplant is indeed more expensive than other treatments including medication or therapies. However, hair transplant is the only permanent solution where other treatment can no longer maintain the hair loss.

Here are the reasons why the hair transplant is expensive at the most time:

Long and Detailed Procedure

A single session of hair transplant may take 4-8 hours to complete. The surgeon will harvest the hair follicles from your back head one by on in FUE methods. The average of 2,000 hair grafts is carefully handled by the surgeon. The follicles are then divided into grafts which will be implanted one by one in the balding area. That’s why the more grafts needed for your hair transplant procedure, the most expensive it becomes.

Hair Transplant Surgery Licensed

Hair transplant should only be performed by the licensed surgeons. The license covers up any necessary skills, training, experience, precision, and other factors need to perform a proper hair transplant surgery. Only by the licensed surgeon, the hair transplant can be successfully completed and provide a normal hair growth and a natural look. The surgeon not only delicately harvest the grafts but also implant them in the natural pattern individually. A more natural result provided by expert hair transplant surgeon, the more expensive it might be.

Hair Transplant Medical Terminology

They should meet any standards in supporting the surgeon on the procedure. The regular time of hair transplant procedure can only be achieved by a full team. The complicated and long procedure is worth a higher price rate.
