My hair is thinning in the crown and the front. I’m not bald yet but I’m on the way. I’m interested in follicular unit hair transplantation and I’d like to know how much I can expect to pay, what is the risk of infection and how long for recovery?
Those are great questions! The cost of a hair transplant procedure will vary depending on your choice of doctor and how many follicular unit grafts you need. Without seeing photos of your hair loss, it would be impossible for me to speculate on your total cost but you can expect to pay around $4 to $5 USD per graft.
There are many variables that affect hair transplant healing, hair growth and recovery times and these issues can be better addressed by scheduling a free consultation with one of our recommended hair restoration physicians.
I highly recommend that you spend some time on our hair loss forum and social community researching our doctors, looking at before and after hair transplant photos and communicating with patients before making any decisions.
