Hair Transplant Basics: A Consumer Guide 2020

Surgical hair transplantation has manifested in many forms over the past several decades but one factor has remained constant; hair transplant surgery is still, by far, the most reliable option for achieving quantifiable and consistent results for treating hair loss. This references the ability to grow hair where once there was no hair and is not intended to imply cosmetic outcomes. This greatly depends on the type of hair loss as not all forms of hair loss can justify surgical intervention.

Am I A Candidate

There are many factors that go into considering surgical hair restoration. On the surface it appears to be a simple affair. You see that you are losing your hair so you go online and start looking at the galleries of the first few hair transplant clinics you find. You see one or two that look good with favorable Yelp reviews so you call or visit for a consultation and you make the decision to have surgery. This is exactly what you should do when researching a mechanic to fix your car but not what you should do when considering surgery.

Hair transplant costs have varied widely for the past few decades. In the 1970’s and 1980’s the cost of a single “plug” graft would cost anywhere from $20.00 to $50.00 each. When the doctor would perform surgeries of 200 grafts on four or five different patients every day the money would pile up quickly.
