Are you wondering how much it would cost to get a hair transplant? If you’re reading this, the answer is probably yes. The best we can do is tell you that the most hair transplants cost somewhere between $2,000 and $15,000. We’d like to give you a concrete number, but the answer depends on a number of factors.

Most importantly, how extensive your hair loss is will greatly affect the cost of a hair transplant. The more grafts that you require (and the more sessions needed to transplant these grafts), the higher the cost will be. A typical hair transplant procedure involves transplanting somewhere between 1,000 and 4,000 individual grafts. Most hair transplant clinics typically charge between $3 and $10 for each individual graft, with $4 or $5 being the most common prices. Additionally, many clinics drop the price of each graft if you commit to having a large number of them.

Where you have the procedure done is also a key factor in determining the price you pay. Simply put, some hair transplant clinics charge much more than others for what is essentially the same procedure. Sometimes, large chains are more expensive than small, private facilities, due to their overhead costs. This isn’t always the case, though.

Don’t forget that the cost of the grafts isn’t the only thing you’ll pay. It’s important to account for additional costs like medication, blood tests and anesthesia when making your budget for a hair transplant.

Our Advice

Take the time and shop around for the best price in your area. Don’t assume that the most expensive doctor is the best (or that the cheapest is the worst). Take the time to speak to several hair transplant surgeons in person and find the one that’s best for your unique situation.

Is it Worth It?

Despite the hefty price, the vast majority of hair transplant patients report that they would gladly spend the money again. For a few thousand dollars, you can get back the self-confidence that you may have lost when you began to lose their hair. It’s impossible to put a price on that.
