I just visit a clinic to do hair transplant for my crown area. He sugeseted I add 2500 grafts using FUSS but the cost looks very expensive. He wants $17,320.00 ….so is this realistic price or what?
I agree that this price would be high for strip excision hair transplantation, which normally ranges from $3 to $6 at the top hair restoration clinics (with price breaks for larger sessions). However, if your proposed surgery (FUSS ?) is different name for FUE (Follicular Unit Excision) then this higher price may be realistic since the price per graft for FUE is typically double that of strip excision for the same number of grafts due to the tedious time consuming nature of FUE surgery.
You may want to consider doing strip excision surgery to reduce your hair restoration costs. In my opinion the end result is just as good or better. But make sure that quality is your number one consideration. Fortunately the best hair tranpslant clinics also typically offer the most reasonable prices (that’s just one of the reasons they are the good guys).
Best wishes for restoring your hair.
