Why is Hair Transplant So Costly

Nothing beats the natural stuff. You teeth, your hair, your good skin are all gifts from the nature. One must ensure that he or she takes good care of these blessings. Once lost, most of them really do not have a true replacements and those that are available are at a high cost.

Hair transplants are quickly becoming the norm in this day and age. In the next few decades, we might see baldness as a rarity. Even though more and more hair transplants are taking place, people are complaining about the high price of these procedures. While the hair transplant cost in UAE is quite reasonable, the clinics in Europe and the US seem to be charging quite a hefty fee per graft.

There are a number of reasons as to why the hair transplant cost is still high. We shall look into the main reasons in the following lines.


There are various techniques being employed by surgeons in order to perform hair transplant surgeries. The newer techniques cost higher than those used in yesteryear and yield better results as well.

Surgeon Skills

It is important that the surgeons are up to date on these latest techniques. These techniques demand greater skill level and surgeons have to ensure they put in the hard miles to perfect them. The skillset of the surgeon factor in big time in the cost.

Man Hours

Hair transplants take a lot of time. At times a session can last up to eight hours. It is not an easy job and apart from the transplant surgeon, a number of other staff members also take part in the process. They need to be compensated for their efforts by the clinic performing the surgery and this adds to the cost of the surgery.

Limited Capacity

Hair transplants must be done in very specific conditions and by experts only. Since the number of surgeries that can be performed at a time are limited due to these factors, the cost soars up.

Equipment and Overheads

Hair transplant clinics need state of the art equipment in order to ensure that they are able to perform hair transplants with success. The clinic must also be kept in a very clean manner to ensure that it is suitable for such surgeries. The cost of the equipment and its maintenance as well as the other overheads factor into the high costs.

Research and Development

The hair transplant industry is constantly improving the hair transplant procedures. In order to continue the research and development, they need money. It is quite natural that they keep the cost of hair transplant high in order to ensure that they can fuel further research and development.
