How much does a hair transplant cost?
Price is really important in making a decision about surgery but even more important is to have the best possible surgery results and this should be done right first time round as unlike face-lifts and other cosmetic procedures a hair transplant is a permanent procedure. Many patients will only have one surgery and its crucial that it is done right and delivers the best expected outcomes to avoid any worries and wasted time as well as wasted money. Prevention of further hair loss is to be seriously considered upon advice by the surgeon as it is not just about having the surgery. Many people worry about the price and we understand that it is important to know if the surgery is in your budget and below is a guide price.
- In order to determine the price for your personal hair restoration a consultation is necessary with the surgeon as only he can determine what the surgery plan should be if it is possible.
This has two benefits firstly you get a lot of information about hair restoration and secondly an accurate assessment of the number of grafts needed and type of surgery.
We can charge a nominal fee for our consultations and they are no obligation. Should the patient decide upon treatment this nominal fee is discounted from the treatment price.We can charge a fee because our consultations are directly with the surgeon and due to the no attendance of free consultations. Many patients contact us quoting the large number of grafts they have been quoted elsewhere. We find these estimates misleading and over inflated designed perhaps to justify the price they have been quoted.
Is there a fixed price depending on my graft numbers?
The price depends upon the complexity of the surgery as well as the number of grafts.If the price was dependent solely upon the number of grafts/ hair this would be more of a retail shop rather than a clinic. Every patient is unique in terms of the complexity of surgery required, the hair restoration plan and its future management. Many patients are misled by clinics promising huge graft numbers such as 3500 grafts or more for extremely low prices. If a deal looks too good to be true then that is probably the case. When considering price and graft numbers it is important to consider preserving your donor area and not having unnecessary excessive graft numbers which simply shifts the problem to the donor area if this has been over harvested.
Rest assured the prices are reasonable and affordable for the majority of the patients that we see. We don’t give prices on the phone without a consultation solely based upon the number of grafts that have been calculated by another clinic as they are often wrong in their estimations.
Our prices for a surgical FUE hair transplant start from around £2500. The price will depend of the type of surgery ie beard, eyebrow, head, mustache. Sometimes a patient might need a very small rectification from a procedure done elsewhere and for this we quote individually. The highest price is not dependant on graft numbers but each patient's surgery needs. We try our best to make our prices accessible and affordable for every single client. We know we are not the cheapest on the market nor the most expensive but we are confident that we are one of the best in the UK and we deliver upon our results and patient expectations. Post operative care is part of our price promise and you can rest assured that after your procedure you will always get the best advice and help should you need it and this offers you a huge peace of mind. Many of our patients do keep in touch with us for medication or treatments as preventing further hair loss in areas that have not been transplanted is an on going project and we are here to support this rather than a one stop surgical procedure offered by cheaper clinic where patients cannot contact and see their surgeon again.
How does the booking work?
In order to secure a date for the surgery a deposit is taken from every patient with the outstanding balance to be paid nearer the surgery date but prior to the day of surgery.
We now offer Finance plans so you can go ahead and get your surgery done without waiting. The finance rates are set by the finance company and are available upon request.
All our consultations are direct with your surgeon Dr Malkani who will conduct a thorough examination and give a price for the treatment or surgery at the end of the consultation. The consultations are not price driven and there is no sales pitch. You can rest assured that your medical examination has been carried out thoroughly. The benefit of a consultation with the surgeon is that if you decide to go ahead with surgery you have already met the surgeon ahead of surgery and know what to expect on the day.Most patients find the consultations incredibly informative with Dr Malkani and they feel they know a whole lot more about hair restoration and their current situation than before they came to see us. Being well informed is crucial in making a good decision about your hair restoration and in making the right choices even if that means not having surgery.
During the consultation Dr Malkani will carry out a detailed examination of the scalp and the area that needs to be covered. Dr Malkani will then calculate the number of cm squared for the area. We then calculate the number of grafts that are necessary to give a good coverage of this area using the total number of cm required for that area. We also could consider the difficulty of each case depending on the type of hair and the extend of hair loss. During the examination the type of donor hair will be examined in detail.
A cheaper price doesn't always work out best.
Price is a very important consideration but equally important is the quality of your treatment.It should be stated that a hair transplant is a permanent procedure and if carried out by someone inexperienced because of the lure of a cheap price the consequences are irreversible and extremely upsetting. The key to a good hair transplant is a good donor area and its size. Your donor area which is finite and limited. Once hair is removed from the donor area it cannot be replaced so it’s absolutely vital that the hair is transplanted correctly and grows. Donor hair is vital and precious.Dr Malkani is a highly experienced surgeon and has a excellent rate of growth of transplanted hair. When patients have had extremely cheap unsuccessful procedures elsewhere they come to us looking for a rectification but if the donor area is decimated by over extraction of grafts there is very little we can offer to help in these situations.
We can give you a better idea of pricing depending on the size and type of procedure during the consultation with our surgeon.
Our quality and price promise
Dr Malkani only ever carries out one hair transplant procedure a day to ensure the highest results for each and every patient and this is part of our price promise.
This is unlike most other clinics where there are two or more cases a day and surgeries can be rushed and we have found that patients have come to us as they have not been happy with their outcomes elsewhere.
FUE/FUT Hair transplant surgery for head hair, beard, mustache start from £2500.
Please note beards and eyebrows cost more due to the complexity of surgery involved even though the graft numbers are less. Price is quoted upon consultation with the surgeon.
Eyebrow transplants from £3000 to £4500
Our price for Hair Restoration tablets £250 for one years supply.
PRP therapy packages are discounted per treatment depending on the number of treatments that are booked.Price is given upon consultation depending on the number to sessions needed to gain a tangible result and the type of hair loss.
PRP for the face is £350 a session. Discounted to £250 a session for packages.
Our prices are intended to be UK market competitive but we do not compete with prices where the clinics carry out substandard work whether in the UK or abroad or by inexperienced teams .We always advise patients to have a cooling off period of at least one week before a decision is made to go ahead with the surgery. After a consultation we do encourage people to have other consultations so that they are able to make an informed choice.
The day of the surgery
We always give our patients preoperative instructions well before the surgery day.On the day of surgery we will make sure the patient is fully consulted again about the procedure and feels sure about the surgery. Although it has never happened with Dr Malkani in the fifteen years of doing hair transplants, and a decade of FUE surgery, the clinic offers a guarantee in case of failure of hair growth to rectify or resolve any issues. We want all our patients to be happy with the results of their surgery.
