The Cost of FUE Hair Transplants
FUE, or follicular unit extraction, has become very popular among those seeking hair a restoration procedure. At Dermatology & Hair Restoration Specialists, F.U.E has become 60% of the procedures we perform. In setting our prices, we have given great consideration to the average person’s budget restraints. We strive to offer the best service and results that we can give but we also believe that it shouldn’t cost a fortune. We guarantee natural results and we work hard to ensure that the extraction sites are as dispersed and undetectable as possible. When a graft is cross cut or damaged while being extracted it is referred to as “transected.” Dr. Sean has done so many F.U.E. procedures that his transection rate is below 2%. And the patient is not charged for the small number of grafts that are transected.
When considering cost we feel that all of the above should be considered. Though we feel that hair transplant should be affordable we also feel that our prices are adequate compensation for the dedicated work of a highly skilled doctor and technician team. Because we only perform one surgery per day each patient gets the full attention of Dr. Behnam and his technicians. All of this should be considered when seeking a doctor for hair transplant.
For a one day FUE procedure we charge $6.30 per. Patients who have straight hair can get 1000 to 1200 grafts in a day. There is a $4000. minimum. Patients with curly hair will get less depending on the intensity of the curl. For two days of F.U.E the charge is $6.10 per graft. Acell is an FDA approved wound healer that has been proven to reduce scarring up to 40%. It also diffuses the scarring making it less detectable. The donor area will heal fine without it but Acell is recommended for patients who want to wear hairstyles that are really short on the back and sides. Currently Acell is an additional $750 per day.
Those seeking an FUE hair restoration procedure should have a free consultation with Dr. Behnam and as many other doctors as needed to feel comfortable making their choice. Cost is important but we feel it is not the only factor to be considered. Patients should feel confident in the doctor they choose. We never charge for consultations and some patients have more than one consultation with us before they decide to schedule a procedure. We know that having a procedure is a big decision so we understand if a patient needs to see us more than once to make a decision. Each meeting will be treated as a medical evaluation. The area to be filled will be measured and the number of grafts will be calculated. We are committed to being clear and honest about the cost and all other aspects of the procedure.
