Hair Transplant Cost - Is USA Still The Best Option?

Updated on April 28, 2012

Hair is a very important aspect of one’s appearance. Scientific surveys have shown that 9 out of 10 people suffering from baldness undergo severe depression. They also feel inferior to others and so shrink away from an active social life. If, you are also suffering from baldness or receding hairline then there is a lot you can do about it. One of the best option available today is hair transplant.

Most people do not consider this option thinking that hair transplant is very costly. But, this is not true. There was a time when this treatment was actually very expensive and out of the reach of the middle-class man. But, with the passage of time and advancement in technology hair transplant cost has gone down considerably.

Average Hair Transplant Cost

Hair transplant cost is calculated either on the basis of the cost per graft or the cost per session. The number of sessions you will require depends on how much of your hair is being transplanted. Most clinics will tell you the cost per graft that you will then have to use to find out the total hair transplant cost. The average hair transplant cost actually depends on which country you are getting it done from. Hair transplant cost in USA can be as much as 6-8$ per graft.

Hair transplant cost in Mexico and hair transplant cost in Canada can be a little lower than this, with an average cost per graft being 5-6 $. However, hair transplant cost in India is dramatically low, about 2-3 $ per graft. But, this raises the doubt as to whether or not it is safe to do your transplant from India. Well, India is a developing country with a lot of potential. The technology available in India is almost as good as the one available in USA. This is the reason, every year, hundreds of men and women visit Indian clinics to get their hair transplant done.

Where Can I Get The Best Treatment?

India is technology-wise “almost” like the other developed countries. So, if you are ready to spend a couple of thousand dollars more, then it is advisable that you get the transplant done in the USA. In the USA clinics, you will get the best doctors in the world. Added to that, you will also get top-notch service. Atlantis 2000, International is very popular amongst the USA hair transplant clinics, given that they provide good service at really low prices. In fact, they claim that they offer the best treatment at the lowest price in the entire USA. Another popular clinic in the USA isHasson & Wong. It is often believed that even if you don’t begin at Hasson & Wong, you will end up there.

To Conclude

Although many countries offer hair transplant services, it is best to go to the USA if you can afford it. You can check on the internet to get a detailed fee-structure of the leading transplant clinics. And, make sure to keep provisions for additional expenses like the fees of the anesthetist, charges of blood tests etc., because these are not included in the hair transplant cost per graft figure.
