Factors That Affect a Hair Transplant Cost

To answer the article question, yes, your hair loss, and the desired results you want do have an impact on the hair transplant cost.

It’s a simple equation of the time and effort involved in the surgery and most practices charge based on a per-graft basis. We look at this in more detail below, and some other cost factors like the surgery location and aftercare regime.

Hair Loss Severity

Hair loss severity is directly linked to your hair transplant cost. This is because the cost is typically calculated based on the number of grafts required. The more grafts you need, the more the surgery will cost – it’s that simple.

A hair transplant to correct a severely receding hairline should theoretically cost less than surgery to correct a receding hairline and balding/thinning on the top of your head.

Desired Results

Ultimately, the cost is greatly impacted by the end results you want. For example, if you just have a receded hairline that you want restored the cost is less than if the top of your scalp was virtually bald and you wanted a full head of hair.

As a result, you have to set your cost expectations accordingly based on what you want to achieve. The more you want in terms of combating your hair loss, the more the hair transplant will cost.
