Fue hair transplant Cost
Hair transplant is a delicate surgery in the sense that it can affect the appearance of a person and regain on destroy his or her self confidence. Baldness is an issue that is being faced by a large number of people these days. With an increase in resources, more people are considering hair transplant surgeries and in order to cater to this increasing number of candidates, surgeon offer competitive prices to entice patients. It is human nature to keep the cost of any commodity in mind and to decide whether it should be purchased or not after the cost of that thing has been accepted. The hair transplant procedure is also a similar case since the cost of the procedure is the most considered factor by the candidates. Hair transplant is an expensive surgery and all surgeons cannot perform it. This surgery is done in two ways, the strip harvest method and the follicular unit extraction (FUE). The strip method involves removal of hair in the form of a strip, which is then dissected into smaller units and planted on the bald patch. The donor site is usually on the back of the head and the wound from strip removal is stapled together and is scarred permanently. On the other hand, FUE involves extraction of individual hair follicles and then these follicles are planted on the bald patch. Small incisions are made at the recipient site and hair follicles are set in to give a natural finish. FUE hair transplant is costlier than strip method since it ensures no scars and a much more natural look. Technically as well, FUE requires more skill and experience from the surgeon since the final look depends on the surgeon totally. Apart from skill and expertise, the surgeon also needs to have an artistic hand so that he plants hair follicles in the same pattern as the rest of the existing hair on the scalp. Due to all these reasons, the FUE costs more than strip method, while hair transplant on the whole, irrespective of which method is being used, is more expensive than ordinary cosmetic procedures such as lip augmentation and dermabrasion. FUE hair transplant is being done all over the orld but some places are more expensive than others. Countries such as Pakistan, Thailand and Malaysia are cheaper for hair transplants as compared to countries like the United States and United Kingdom. In the developed western countries, FUE hair transplant surgery may cost between 8,000 Euros to 10,000 Euros. While the same surgery using FUE method, if performed in Pakistan costs between Rs70,000 to Rs150,000. The surgeons usually charge according to the number of grafts planted and so if a person requires lesser grafts to conceal baldness, he will naturally pay lesser than someone who needs a larger number of grafts to conceal baldness.
