FUT Hair Transplant Pricing
Each follicular unit contains 1-4 hairs. These are bound together by sebaceous glands and a tiny muscle called the arrector pili. The percentage of follicular units of each size is determined by your genetics. We do NOT break up follicular units in order to charge you more for a surgery. It takes us the same amount of time to separate follicular unit grafts whether each one contains a single hair or 4 hairs. Most people have a combination of 1,2,3 and 4-hair follicular units.
Traditional Donor Ellipse (Strip) Harvesting
This technique continues to be the gold standard for all women, and for men who need a large session and who are willing to wear their hair 1-2cm long in the back. This is because it allows for the harvesting of the greatest amount of hairs, with the least amount of trauma, from the most permanent donor zone, in the shortest amount of time. It also does not require shaving a large section of the back of the head.
Your fee includes all follow-up visits after surgery, as well as lunch the day of the procedure and a complete ‘go bag’ with items for postoperative care. We like to see our patients at 1 week, 1 month, 4 months, 8 months and 12 months after your procedure. Patients who live out of town may prefer to do a phone follow up. We are happy to change your dressing the day after your procedure if scheduling allows. (see FAQ: Post-operative instructions)
This technique is offered to men who wear their hair very short and do not want a linear scar in the back of the head. Each follicular unit contains 1-4 hairs. Dr. Rogers has the relative luxury of choosing what size follicular units are most needed for the particular goals to be achieved. If adding density is the goal, she can choose more 3-4 hair follicular units. If softening the hairline is what is desired, she can choose more single-hair follicular units. Either way, she must leave enough space between follicles so that the area heals well and looks natural. She uses magnification loupes to examine the donor area to select hairs.
Hair Transplant Costs
The cost of hair surgery is dependent on the size of the area being treated, your hair quality and density, and the number of surgeries needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Most hair transplant procedures cost between $4,000 and $10,000. Some patients may need multiple procedures to achieve desired coverage, or to address new hair loss developing in the future. We advise all hair loss patients to consider medical hair loss therapy in addition to hair transplantation, because it can help boost the results from surgery and prevent ongoing thinning in the surrounding areas. During your comprehensive hair loss consultation with Dr. Rogers, she will present you with treatment options, discuss costs, and provide patient finance options.
If more than 1500 follicular units are required, and you have adequate donor density, you may undergo a two-day procedure. Pricing is based on a flat session charge based on the graft range above and will be given on a case by case basis during your consultation with Dr. Rogers.
