Whilst it is a luxury, the cost of a hair transplant may be the best investment you ever make. Rather like a new suit it allows you to regain the confidence that might be missing from your life since you succumbed to male pattern baldness. However, pinning down the exact price can be difficult due to the number of variables involved in calculating the cost.
Why have your hair transplant in the UK?
The internet is full of low-cost prices for hair transplants in developing nations. Hair transplants are a relatively safe treatment, but it is still a surgical procedure, with all the scope for problems to arise that this entails.
As well as having to face a range of public health situations that are relatively unknown here at home, you also need to face the fact that you will be recuperating in a foreign nation, away from home and in many cases without English-speaking medical staff to assist you if something goes wrong.
You also will be recuperating in an unfamiliar hotel room rather than in the comfortable surroundings of your own home.
What is the cost of a hair transplant?
The main arbiter of the cost of a hair transplant is the number of hair-producing follicles that you will need to be transplanted. The more hair you require to be taken from the donor site and moved, the more the procedure will cost. However, in general, hair transplant prices in the UK tend to run between £2,000 and £5,600 with an average of around £4,000.
The only way to be sure of the exact cost of the surgery would be to visit an independent surgeon for a free consultation.
