Hair transplant is a favorite treatment of hair loss patients. Everyone loves the idea of growing hair back once they are lost due to permanent hair loss. After surgical restoration of head hair, Facial Hair Transplants are becoming quite popular. Despite the increasing popularity of facial hair transplants, many men still prefer to shave their beards rather than getting the bald patches filled. This reluctance is primarily due to a common misconception that facial hair transplants are very expensive and out of the range of a common man. Well, it is not the case always!
Factors affecting cost of facial hair transplant:
You must not think that the procedure will cost you high just because your friend has paid much for a hair transplant. Facial hair transplant cost is different for every individual because it depends upon multiple factors, including the number of hair grafts required, technique used, area under treatment, and the experience and reputation of the surgeon performing the procedure.
Hair restoration facilities generally charge their patients on per graft basis. Cost per graft is shared with the patient and the total cost is obtained by multiplying it with the number of grafts needed. So, if you need more grafts, obviously you will have to pay more and vice versa.
Like the traditional hair transplant done on scalp, cost of facial hair transplant also depends on the surgical technique used. Since facial hair transplant generally needs fewer grafts, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is mostly used for donor hair harvesting. But if you need a significant number of donor hairs, even strip removal method is not out of question. The former is an expensive technique as compared to the latter. This is because FUE needs a surgeon’s more time and effort than FUT.
One element that you must keep in your mind is that the cost of the treatment is actually a trade-off between your money and the quality of the results. Good surgeons who practice latest techniques in well-equipped hair restoration facilities often charge high. But, results that their surgeries show are in no comparison with the results of surgeries performed by ordinary surgeons.
It is pertinent to mention here that hair transplant surgeons deal every patient on an individual basis and let them know the exact cost only after a complete examination of the areas of problem. Your doctor may also suggest you some medicines along with surgical hair transplantation. Use the medicines as prescribed for best results.
Beware of cheap facial hair transplants:
Although facial hair transplant cost in Dubai is already less, some low quality surgeons are offering even low prices—at the expense of quality and your health. Never let low price tempt you, as treating health complications caused by low quality transplants is way expensive than paying for a quality transplant. The same is true of bad results. Correcting a bad hair transplant is more expensive than having a good quality transplant in the first place.
How to minimize facial hair transplant cost:
Good clinics generally announce discount offers for individuals on major occasions like Eids, Christmas, and New Year etc. If you feel that your surgery is going to cost you much or you are just seeking a low-priced facial hair transplant, schedule your treatment accordingly. Some surgeons also offer discount on large hair transplants. This offer is beneficial for patients who have large balding areas or want to treat multiple areas on face, like mustaches, goatee, beard and sideburns.
The estimated facial hair transplant cost in Dubai starts from AED 15000. However, it will again depend on the size of the area that needs to be treated and the number of grafts required.
