I want hair transplant surgery, but can’t afford it. I found a clinic offering very inexpensive surgery. Should I get the cheap hair transplantation?
Price is important; I understand that. I do, however, always share the following “warning” when I hear this question: one quality hair transplant with a trusted physician is usually more cost effective in the end. “Discount” hair transplant surgery sometimes results in touch-ups or, in unfortunate cases, repairs. At the end of the day, this costs more.
Can you get good results at cheap rates? Sure. It happens. Is there any obvious correlation between price and quality? No. And this isn’t what I’m saying. What I am saying is this: I’ve simply seen too many cases where patients used price as their ONLY determining factor in choosing a clinic and ended up with poor results and repair procedures. I hate seeing this happen to hair loss sufferers, so I always share the above. I recommend thoroughly reviewing all physicians you’re considering for surgery. Consult with a number of hair loss doctors, review your options, and pick a surgeon who meets all your needs. Be careful, however, selecting a surgeon based on price alone.
