If you are faced with severe hair loss which your doctor confirms is not caused by a temporary factor, then one option that you may want to consider is a hair transplant. However, in order to make that decision, you will probably first want to know, amongst other things, how much would a hair transplant cost you.
Depending on the cause of your hair loss, you may find that your medical insurance covers at least part of the cost of the surgery. For example if your hair loss is considered to be a reconstructive treatment as it was caused by something like trauma or burns, then it may be covered. Otherwise, you will have to bear the hair transplant cost yourself.
To give you a rough idea of how much a hair transplant will cost, it is in the region of $4000. Naturally this figure can vary according to a lot of factors. For example, if you suffer from a mild case of hair loss, you can expect that the cost will be lower from someone who has a severe case of hair loss.
The cost of the hair transplant can also vary greatly depending on your expectations. Therefore, in order to obtain a more accurate indication of the hair transplant cost for you, it is a good idea to arrange a consultation with a medical professional trained in hair transplant surgery.
The consultation with a hair transplant surgeon is generally not free. Saying that though, if you are considered to be a suitable candidate and you do decide to proceed with the surgery, the initial consultation costs are usually reimbursed. Both the cost of the consultation as well as the reimbursement does depend though on which company you choose to carry out your hair transplant.
Whatever company you decide to consult, be sure that they are qualified to carry out hair transplants and have experience of carrying out this type of surgery.
If you are considering undergoing a hair transplant then you need to keep in mind that it is a form of surgery and therefore there is a risk attached to the process. In addition, results of the surgery cannot be predicted to a high degree since all people are individuals and can react differently to the treatment. Therefore as part of the overall hair transplant cost, you also need to consider the cost of any additional touch-up surgery that you may require to achieve the look that you are after.
