Today, most of the people are facing hair fall problems. That's why the demand for hair transplantation has been increased. The hair fall problem starts from thinning of hair which becomes a permanent loss of hair in future. The reasons for hair loss problems include change in climatic conditions, change in the pattern of lifestyle, certain types of diseases, change in the healthy diet routine, change in the level of hormones, stress at both personal and professional levels, etc. The permanent solution to this problem is hair transplant surgery. How much does hair transplant surgery cost? There is not a definite answer to this question. This is because different hair transplants have different costs. Also, the cost of hair transplantation varies from clinic store clinics. For example, if we search for hair transplant cost in Mumbai, we will find a lot of results on the internet with different costs.
The hair transplant surgery is generally of two types FUT and FUE. FUE hair transplant cost different from FUT hair transplant cost. Darling Buds Hair Transplant Center is the place which offers hair transplant surgery cost in Mumbai at affordable rates.
The cases of genetic baldness have increased in the past many years. The techniques of hair transplantation help fight these problems. Many surgical techniques of hair transplantation are available today like Anagen Q+ FUE technique, DHI techniques, etc. These techniques have challenged the problem of hair fall. If a hair transplant is done properly, it will not only give you a great look but also boost your self-esteem.
How much does hair transplant surgery cost? Cost is one of the main factors that every person considers while taking hair transplant services. Most people think that the cost of the best hair transplant is high. This is because they do not know how the cost of a hair transplant is calculated. The cost of hair transplantation depends on the number of grafts. The formula to calculate the cost of hair transplant is:
(Cost per graft) X (Number of grafts).
If you call a clinic for an enquiry about the cost of hair transplant, they will tell you the approximate cost. The exact cost of hair transplant procedure is determined only after the completion of harvesting of grafts. The actual cost can vary from 10% to 20% from the approximate cost.
The hair transplant surgery cost depends on a number of factors like skill of the surgeon, severity of baldness, etc. Let’s see the factors determining the cost of hair transplantation in detail:
If we compare these two methods of hair transplantation, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a more time consuming method. While FUE harvesting takes 2 to 3 hours, FUT hair transplantation is completed in approximately 20 minutes. That’s why FUE hair transplantation costs 2 to 3 times higher than that of the FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) hair transplantation technique. Still, FUE is considered as the best method of hair transplantation. This is because FUE is the minimally invasive technique of hair transplantation.
Let’s take an example of the USA. In some states of the USA, the hair transplantation is carried out by technicians rather than the team of doctors. These technicians are always in a hurry because they have to do another hair transplantation in another clinic of the same or other city. If we compare the hair transplantation done by technicians to that done by the doctors in the terms of cost, the first one is cheaper than the latter one.
The skill set of a surgeon is another important factor that affects the cost of hair transplant. Of course, no expert other than the plastic surgeon knows well the procedure of wound healing. We also see that other specialists are engaged in the procedure of hair transplant. This is because they lost license in their own specialities ENT, Dental, Anesthesia, Cardiology, Gynecology, etc. A hair transplant specialist should have at least 5 years of experience in hair restoration procedures. The more the experience is, the minimum are the chances of getting prone to potential risks. If you consult the best surgeon for a hair transplant, you will have to pay a high price. But it is not always true that costly services are the best. Therefore, you should choose wisely.
A skilled technician charges a high amount of hair transplantation. This means that a low-cost clinic has inexperienced technicians for hair transplantation procedure. In India, the model of hair transplantation is the replica of TURKEY MODEL, where a technician performs more than 10 hair transplant procedures simultaneously in day and night shifts. This is the major cause of unnatural results, infections, unsafe procedures, etc. because the technicians do not get enough time to sterilise the operation rooms. The deaths due to hair transplantation at low cost clinics are reported due to this reason. Another reason for the mortality rate in hair transplant is the lack of surgical background of technicians.
The cost of hair transplantation can be calculated roughly with the help of a graft calculator. However, this technique does ot work for the persons who are not the candidate of hair transplantation. The cost of hair transplantation is calculated on per follicle or per graft basis. This is what the best surgeons do. This calculation depends on the type of baldness a person is suffering from. The Norwood Scale is the basic calculator to determine the cost of hair transplantation procedure.
The graft damage rate is also known as Transection rate. The graft damage rate depends on the skill of harvesting a doctor possesses and the techniques and pieces of equipment used by him.
Hair transplantation is a surgical process therefore, clinics should maintain proper hygiene. Besides this, the clinics should also have a proper sterilization and infection control facility. Some clinics are poorly ventilated. This creates a favourable condition for infection. At Darling Buds clinic, we perform only 1 to 2 cases a day in order to reduce the risk of infections. This increases the cost of hair transplantation procedure but it is an important point to be considered for your safety. If any patient asks for a discount, then he will compromise with the results of hair transplantation due to cost cutting.
Travel costs are paid by the patients themselves. But this is an important factor for determining the total cost for hair transplantation surgery. It depends on the patients. Some patients add this cost to the total cost of hair transplant while some do not.
As stated previously here that the cost per graft is calculated by using a graft calculator. By knowing the number of grafts required by the bald area, one can calculate the cost to some extent. The density of the follicular unit is calculated on a per square centimeter basis. The requirements of every person vary as per their hair pattern. This affects the price of FUE hair transplantation procedure.
The cost nearest the exact cost can be calculated by a complete hair analysis followed by a proper consultation. The following rates for hair transplantation are available at 5 Rivers Clinic of Dr. Bhatti. But these rates are not the same at Dr. Bhatti’s another clinic for hair transplantation, Darling Buds Clinic.
This is how the hair transplant cost in Mumbai is calculated.
These are the tentative rates for hair transplantation which will give you a rough idea for the cost of hair restoration. Darling Buds Clinic provides discounts to its customers in the months of April, May and June.
There are many clinics in India which offer 0% EMI schemes to support their customers financially. Customers who are interested to avail such schemes must consult the clinic and the concerned person to get details. Your insurance will not cover the cost of hair transplant. This is because hair transplant is a cosmetic surgery.
Due to the availability of easy financial options, hair transplantation today has become more affordable than before. Most of the people still have a misconception that hair transplantation is too expensive. Due to this, they visit uncertified clinics. The survival rate of hair follicles at such clinics is less than 50%. By undergoing hair transplantation in such clinics, patients will face bad results after which they have to visit a reputed clinic which in turns cost them double. Therefore, it is suggested that you should not consider the cost only for hair transplant.
