Cost Of Hair Transplant Surgery

Updated on August 22, 2010

A hair transplant is the most effective way to eliminate balding. This modern day procedure is safe and offers amazing results. Anyone who is interested in getting a hair transplant is most likely curious as to how much it will cost. Hair transplant cost is determined through a variety of different factors. 

The following will provide you with step by step instructions on how to estimate your hair transplant cost.

Step 1


To start, measure out the area on your scalp that is affected by balding. Hair transplants are charged by the square centimeter. This means that you will have to pay a base price for every square centimeter of hair that you need tranplanted into your scalp. This base price can be anywhere from $150 - $500 per square cm. To measure, take an erasable marker and carefully outline the area that is affecteed by baldness and break this area down into square centimeters using a ruler.

Step 2

Determine Price Per Square CM

Figure out how much you will be paying per square centimeter. You can find this info online or by contacting a few hair transplant surgeons through your phone book.

When searching for a base price for your price per sq. cm. be sure to compare atleast 3-4 different surgeons prices. Price for hair transplants vary, so price shopping is essential towards finding the best price for the procedure.

Step 3


Once you have established how much you will be paying per sq. cm. The next step is to multiply the amount of sq. cm. of hair transplantation by the base price you found in your research in step #2.

An example of the formula will look something like this: 20 cm. squared (the area of hair transplantation needed) multipied by the base price of your cost per cm. Lets say your base price for transplantation is $200 per sq. cm.) This means the cost would be: 20 x 200 = $4000. So basically someone who needs 20 sq. cm of hair tranplantation who found a base price of $200 per cm. sq. would pay $4000 for the procedure.

Step 4

Consider Maintence

Apart from your initial estimated hair transplant cost, you will also need to consider the maintenace of your hair transplant. After a patients recieve a hair transplant, he will need to periodically recieve additional hair transplant sessions. The cost of such maintenance will add up to approximately $2,000 per month.

Step 5

Schedule A Consultation

To officially confirm your hair transplant cost, schedule an appointmen with a hair transplant specialist. Such a specialist will analize the balding area and give you an estimate as to how much it will cost to fill in the affected area. Many specialists offer free consultations to their potential patients. You can find a hair transplant specialist in your area through an online search or in your local phone book.
Step 6

Payment Plans

If the total cost of your hair transplant is out of your budget, consider paying for your transplant through a payment plan. Many hair transplant surgeons will offer a payment plan for the procedure. Often times this plan is offered through 0% financing for a certain period of time. This will make paying for your hair transplant procedure a breeze.

In Closing

Many who spend money on topical treatments and other hair growing treatments spend more money on such treatments (over a period of time) than a hair transplant procedure may cost. In the long term hair transplant can be more affordable than other treatment options.
