The cost can vary vastly.
The cost of a hair transplant is very much case dependent.
It depends on the clinic you choose, the type of procedure you undergo, the complexity of your case and the number of grafts needed to address your concerns.
Hair transplant costs in Northern Ireland vary based on the skillset of the hair transplant surgeon and the goals of the clinic providing.
Some clinics will very much treat the procedure as part of the conveyor belt and you could simply be a number to rush through for profit. Carrying out multiple procedures daily.
Others may leave the job to poorly trained technicians.
And while you may believe you benefit from receiving a great deal, this belief is short sighted. Your promise of great results from the discounted surgery eventually becomes a nightmare with poor graft growth and unfixable donor area scars.
The actual cost of a hair transplant surgery in Northern Ireland should be looked at from your long-term results and satisfaction and not only from the perspective of how much you can save.
The hair transplant cost can also differ with each method.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Extraction ( FUT or strip method) are the two most commonly performed hair transplant procedures today.
FUE is more expensive than FUT, and there are good reasons for that.
During FUT, the surgeon cuts a strip of skin from the back of your scalp, 6 to 10 inches long and 0,6 inches wide. He then closes your scalp with sutures. The technicians take the strip of skin and trim it into individual follicular units under microscopes.
With FUE, on the other hand, the surgeon will extract the hair follicles one by one, leaving behind tiny holes less than 1mm. FUE is less invasive with a faster recovery time. It is also more time-consuming and technically demanding. The skills and expertise of the surgeon are of utmost importance. Today, FUE has become the gold standard of hair restoration procedures. Nothing else comes close to delivering natural-looking results without the need for a linear scar on the back of your scalp. Patients benefit from a much more comfortable procedure and have no visible scarring.
The number of grafts is a significant factor when considering the hair transplant cost.
The larger your thinning or balding area and the smaller your hair thickness, the more grafts you will need to gain the density you require.
The image below represents the Norwood Scale of hair loss and can be used to calculate roughly how many grafts your procedure might require.
Each area will require between 500-1000 grafts depending on the level of thinning, your hair thickness and the desired density of the transplanted hair. You can expect to pay anywhere from £1 to £5 per graft.
Those who suffer hair loss in the frontal area or just in the crown may benefit from a hair transplant procedure that involves 2000 grafts and is expected to cost around £3500 – 5000.
Most patients with advanced stages of hair loss affecting the frontal area and the mid-scalp or the crown of the head, require 4000+ grafts; these hair restoration procedures are performed in two consecutive days or 8-12 months apart and cost between £6000 and £8500.
Finally, patients with the most advanced stages of hair loss, who have a large bald area on the top and front of the scalp, but their hair on the sides of the scalp remains relatively high, may benefit from hair transplants that involve 5000 or more grafts which would require multiple surgeries; the cost varies from £8500 – £11,000.
A good hair transplant isn’t the cheapest, it can be the best investment you make to gain back the confidence you have lost. Don’t forget that when you are looking at low-cost hair transplants around Northern Ireland.
