Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure which involves the removal of hair from an area of good hair growth and then implanting them at a different site, where hair coverage is less or absent. Everywhere in the world, the latest methods of surgical hair restoration are becoming popular and due to this, surgeons are engaged in a healthy competition and reduce their fee and procedure charges to invite a larger number of patients. In Saudi Arabia, the number of clinics and medical centers offering hair restoration surgery are very few and people need to do some research in order to find a good surgeon as well as one who costs less. The cost is the most prominent factor why hair transplantation is not very widespread in Saudi Arabia itself. Patients travel to eastern countries in order to get a cheaper procedure done. The kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an expensive place when it comes to medical treatments and since there are many foreign surgeons and doctors there, the prices of even simple procedures are high. It is highly recommended that anyone in Saudi Arabia who seeks a best hair transplantation must travel to Asian countries such as Malaysia, Thailand and Pakistan. There are many urban settlements in Saudi Arabia such as Dammam, Jeddah, Makkah, Madina, Riyadh and Taif. However, the surgeons who can perform good hair transplants at a cheap cost are almost none. The average fee for the plantation of a single graft is $8. This way, we can easily calculate the cost of the total procedure since for only 1000 grafts, the cost of the total treatment becomes around $8,000. In case of a large number of grafts the cost becomes phenomenal and out of the reach of many people. On the contrary, the FUE hair transplantation procedure costs less than half of this in Pakistan, where the higher limit of a hair surgery is somewhere around Rs140,000 which is equivalent to $1,400 only. This makes Saudi Arabia a very expensive place for all kinds of hair transplantation surgery while in many countries the strip method costs almost half of the more technical FUE method. The strip method is less technical and requires a lower degree of skill and expertise. The follicular unit extraction (FUE) method involves the extraction of individual hair follicles which are then planted on the bald patch. This method cannot be performed by all surgeons since the surgeons have to consider the hair growth pattern and then plant the new follicles in the same pattern. Similarly the direction of hair follicles also has to be constant. The FUE method can also be done using the latest technique of mechanical transplantation using a robotic device called neograft. Hair transplant cost Jeddah is charged according to number of grafts and two to three times higher than Pakistan
