How Much Does a Hair Transplant Cost?
One of the most common questions we get asked is, “How much does a Bosley hair transplantation procedure cost?”
While each patient is unique, the usual cost of a hair transplant ranges between $6,000 and $10,000 but can deviate higher or lower depending on your restoration needs/goals. Where you fall in that range depends primarily on the number of hair grafts you’ll need to achieve the results you want. The best way to get an accurate cost estimate on a hair transplant is to come in to Bosley for a free consultation. Also, by having a consultation, you may learn that you don’t need a hair transplant and can benefit from one of Bosley’s non-surgical hair restoration solutions.
A Bosley physician and counselor can give you a price estimate when they perform your hair and scalp analysis, and the following information will help you understand how hair transplant costs are calculated.
How Are Hair Transplant Costs Calculated?
The cost of a hair restoration is calculated on a per-graft basis, with each graft consisting of 1, 2, 3 or 4 hair follicles. The number of grafts you will need depends on your hair restoration goal but usually ranges between 600 (for minimal hair loss) to 3,000+ (for extensive hair loss). Generally, the higher the number of follicular unit grafts, the lower the “per-follicular unit graft” charge. For instance, if you receive a 1,600-follicular-unit-graft transplant instead of an 800-graft transplant, it won’t double the cost.
Cost per Graft
Since each patient’s hair loss classification, donor hair and treatment recommendation are unique, we can’t give you an exact cost per graft without seeing you in person. To get a quote, schedule a free consultation with a Bosley counselor where you can discuss the benefits and cost of each hair restoration option.
Cost of FUT vs. FUE
If you’ve been researching hair restoration options, you’ve probably heard of the two primary hair restoration techniques: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). If not, here’s a quick rundown.
In general, the cost-per-graft of an FUT procedure is lower than that of an FUE procedure due to the time-intensive nature of the FUE procedure. However, improvements in FUE technology and the rise in popularity of the procedure have lowered prices so that the difference in price between the two techniques is now much smaller. Your Bosley counselor and/or physician can explain the benefits of each procedure type and help you determine which option is best for you.
The True Value of Bosley Hair Restoration
Bosley hair transplantation is a simple yet artistically and technically complex outpatient procedure performed by the foremost experts in the field. It’s not a temporary cosmetic solution like a wig or a hair system. These temporary solutions may seem tempting because of their lower upfront cost, but if you keep them for more than a few years, the cost of maintaining them will be significantly more than that of a permanent and natural-looking Bosley procedure, which requires no ongoing maintenance.
You need to ask yourself, “How much is it worth to me to have a full head of hair for the rest of my life?” We think you’ll agree that the benefits are well worth the cost of the procedure.
What’s Included in the Cost
Each Bosley procedure is performed by an experienced Bosley-affiliated physician and highly trained care team of nurses and technicians — all working together to make sure you’re comfortable and to help you achieve excellent results.
In addition to the procedure, the cost includes local anesthesia (administered during your procedure), pain medications (as needed), and postoperative hair and scalp care products. Your support team will provide step-by-step instructions and guidance throughout the process.
Hair Transplantation Financing
While the value of hair restoration is clear, we understand that the upfront cost associated with a hair transplant can seem daunting to some. With multiple financing options,* you can have your procedure now and pay in installments that fit your budget. Payment terms vary by provider, and your Bosley counselor can help you select the payment plan that is right for you during your free, private consultation.
