Hair Transplant Surgery Cost in Pakistan
Hair transplant surgeries are being performed everywhere in the world but there are some places that offer cheaper hair transplants while the quality and results are equally promising. Countries like Malaysia, Thailand and Pakistan offer hair transplants at better costs than the developed countries of the west. The cost of hair transplant surgery depends on a few factors such as health care cost, equipment and the doctors. In Pakistan, the doctors charge lesser fee than the doctors in the west. Almost al surgeons charge according to the number of grafts planted or the procedure chosen. There are basically two methods through which hair transplant is done. One is the strip method and the other is the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Strip method involves extraction of hair in the form of a strip from a site f good hair growth, usually from the back of the head. This strip is then dissected into smaller units and then planted on the bald patch. The area from where the strip is removed, also called the donor site, is then stapled back together using stainless steel staples, which are formulated for surgical use and leave a prominent scar. The strip method is easily carried out and does not need much skill and expertise. The FUE method involves extracting individual hair follicles which are planted on the bald patch. This method requires more skill and expertise along with an artistic hand. The surgeon has to analyze the existing hair pattern and then has to plant the follicles in the same pattern so as to give a natural look. Apart from the plantation, the donor site all has no scars and hence this form of surgery is more preferred. The hair transplant surgery costs somewhere between 8,000 Euros to 10,000 Euros in the developed countries of Europe. The same kind of procedure, if performed in Pakistan costs between Rs70,000 to Rs140,000. Of course, the cost of surgery is directly proportional to the amount of work being done. If a person is getting hair transplant through the strip method it will cost him or her lesser than if FUE method is used. Similarly, through the FUE method if lesser grafts are planted than it will cost a person lesser than if there is a high number of grafts planted. The surgeon has a team of technicians to assist the procedure and hence it is not only the surgeon’s fee but also the technicians’ fees that create the cost to elevate. Any candidate must do some basic research before getting the procedure started. The choice of surgeon primarily depends on the skill and the cost he or she offers. Of course, no one wants to compromise quality for price, but even then it is based on good research and study, that a good surgeon can be consulted who is renowned for his skill and success in hair transplant surgeries.
