The most common term heard nowadays is “hair loss”. A lot of people suffer from hair loss. It is inevitable for most since this is commonly part of the natural aging process. Because of this, a huge number of people just let their hair fall off naturally while others choose to deal with hair loss differently.
There are many ways for this condition to be resolved or at least be covered for a longer period of time. One of the most popular ways to do this is to undergo hair transplant surgery. Anyone is eligible for this as long as there are parts of the scalp that is healthy enough to be a donor area.
Let us first see causes of hair loss:
- Physical stress – Surgery, illness, anemia, rapid weight change
- Emotional stress – Mental illness.
- Thyroid abnormalities
- Medications – High doses of vitamin A (sometimes present in diet supplements), blood pressure medications, gout medications
- Hormonal changes – Pregnancy, birth control pills, menopause
- Androgenetic Alopecia – Male/Female Pattern Baldness
The cost of hair transplants varies because there is more than one surgical method to be chosen.
You can either have Strip Harvesting or Follicular Unit Extraction.
Strip Harvesting started earlier on and involves removal of a small piece of the actual scalp and it's transplantation on the part of the head with thinning hair. This procedure takes a shorter time but a much longer recovery period than the second one.
The second type of procedure, Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE, requires more effort but with this method, there will be no visible scars on the scalp and the recovery period will be a lot shorter. The reason for this is instead of removing a piece of the actual scalp, only the hair follicles are removed and transplanted. The process takes a longer time but once it is done, the patient would not have to suffer from scars on the scalp. Plus, based on the previous results, this is more effective than normal Strip Harvesting. The only drawback with this method is the higher cost for hair transplant.
Because FUE is more modern than Strip Harvesting, it is naturally more expensive.
The cost of hair transplant depends on the number of follicular unit transplanted.
The cost is in the form of package for your complete care that includes pre operation, operative cost and your post operative care.
