FUE Hair Transplant or Follicular Unit Extraction is a surgical hair restoration method in which individual hair follicles are extracted from a baldness-resistant donor area (typically the back of the scalp) and are implanted on the thinning or balding areas of the patient’s head.
Most men become bald gradually over years, whereas women fall prey to thinning hair. In the past baldness was considered as an irreversible process, with people believing that the hair lost once cannot be restored. But surgical Hair Transplant proved that conception wrong. Now you can easily regrow the lost hair and enjoy a youthful appearance.
Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant is the latest technique used for surgical hair restoration that gives you permanent growing, natural-looking hair that looks healthy, and that too without any scarring. The transplanted hair grow like other hair on your scalp because the donor source is the most natural possible – hair from your own scalp.
Cost of FUE Hair Transplant
Cost of FUE hair transplantation varies widely from one person to another depending on the following factors:
- The extent of hair loss
- Texture and type of the patient’s hair
- Number of grafts to be transplanted
- Size of the area that needs to be covered
- Your desired result, including hair density, hairline design
- Donor hair characteristics (volume, texture, color, and waviness)
That said, the real secret behind getting a good result lies in the surgical skills and experience of the personal physician performing the procedure. The reputation of the physician and the geographic location of the clinic also play a vital role in determining the cost of treatment.
The cost of FUE hair transplantation per graft is higher than the cost of hair transplantation by the FUT or strip method since the former requires the grafts to be harvested individually by the surgeon, and it takes a lot of time, patience and experience.
Generally, the cost of FUE hair transplant in Dubai can range between US $4 per graft to US $15 per graft. Of course some clinics will discount the fee for the larger number of grafts. This is in contrast to the strip method of hair transplantation where the cost can range between US $2 to US $10 per graft.
It is amusing and quite an interesting fact that many men most of the people with hair loss look for the cheapest option available for their hair transplantation. But as they say, you get what you pay for. There are cheaper offers available, but don’t let the low cost of procedure lure you at the expense of quality of procedure. Never compromise on the expertise of the cosmetic surgeon, no matter what is the cost of the procedure.
