Hair Transplant Costs
The cost of a hair transplant in Connecticut and the rest on the Northeast depends mostly on the degree of your hair loss, how many grafts are needed to meet your expectations, and/or how many sessions you may need to complete your hair restoration procedure. Other factors that can impact cost is the patient’s desired hair density and the technique utilized – follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular unit transplant (FUT) also known as linear extraction or “strip” harvesting. During your personal consultation with Dr. Scott Boden he will review the factors that will both impact your results and ultimate cost.
Hair transplant costs can also vary based on the expertise of the hair transplant surgeon and philosophy of the medical practice. Dr. Boden has over 13 years experience performing hair transplantation and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, and the only surgeon in New England recommended by the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons . Dr. Boden performs only one hair transplant procedure per day. You are the only focus. Many commercial chains may perform more than one procedure at a time and still cost more because of heavy overhead and advertising budgets.
Our approach is to perform the highest quality procedure and to make the procedure as pleasant an experience as possible.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) costs are usually more than traditional follicular unit hair transplantation because it is much more time intensive and involves more time and attention to detail when removing the individual hair follicles one-by-one. Our fee for FUE hair transplants generally begin at around $6-7,000.
Linear extraction (“Strip” procedure) is typically more efficient and more follicles can be harvested at one time. Our costs typically begin at $3-4,000 for a conservative procedure and increases depending on the number of follicles transplanted in a session.
When you meet with Dr. Boden for your personal consultation, you will learn about causes of hair loss, medical options to retain your existing hair, and receive a firm quotation for a hair transplant procedure if this is the right option for you.
When researching costs for hair transplant you may come across offers for cheap surgery. Cheap surgery is no bargain. Often the cheaper quotes don’t include other costs that are then surreptitiously added on after you have committed. You may be quoted cost per individual hair, not cost per follicle, which typically contain 1 to 3 hairs each. Also it is worthwhile noting that many other physicians will add on charges at the end of the procedure for “extra” grafts that are obtained. Dr. Boden always aims to obtain more than the quoted amount of follicles and does not believe in charging extra for additional follicles.
Other expenses to keep in mind when calculating a hair transplant cost may be the price of any extra medication, blood tests, anesthesia, and facility fees.
