I am looking seriously into getting a hair transplant in the next 6-8 months. Is there a general price that you can provide? I will be looking to get the most possible grafts to look the most natural. I have a receding hair line and I want to know if I can create my old hair line and want to know how natural it will look. Also, with all these hair transplant physicians I see, how come so many of them look bald?
When it comes to restoring the hairline, hair transplants are one of the only ways to regrow hair in this area, since Propecia and Rogaine typically do not regrow hair in the hairline. But be very picky about the hair restoration physician you choose as their skill and results do vary widely. But done right no one should ever be able to tell that you’ve had a hair transplant. I strongly suggest that you spend time on our Hair Restoration Discussion Forum and discuss hair transplant surgeons who you are considering with their actual patients. Prices typically range from $3 to $6 per graft. However, some hair transplant clinics discount the per graft price to $2 per graft after 2,000 grafts. This does make it more affordable to do large sessions.
As for why some of the surgeons are so bald, I think that some of them just don’t have enough donor hair to surgically restore their hair.
