How much does a hair transplant cost?
The cost of a hair transplant will vary, depending on the size of the bald or thin area, the method of graft harvest (FUE versus strip), who is performing the procedure, and the geographic location of the clinic (east and west coast of the U.S. are the most expensive). The least expensive method is called the strip harvest method and the most expensive is the ARTAS robot for FUE. The cost in my clinic may be $4-$5/ graft for a strip harvest (FUT) or $5-$8/graft for FUE.
At the low end expect to pay $3,000 for a hair transplant at the Hair Sciences Center, and at the high end you can expect to pay $15,000 or more. There are clinics offering cheaper transplant procedures, but please exercise caution, vet the clinic, and thoroughly research the individual physician who will perform the procedure. For your convenience Dr. Harris has compiled questions to help you properly vet a hair transplant clinic or physician. Poorly executed hair transplants performed by chain or inferior clinics are all too common, and unfortunately a sizable percentage of Dr. Harris’ practice is devoted to correcting these surgeries.
