How much does a hair transplant cost?
How much does a hair transplant cost? The patient who decides to have a hair transplant is sometimes understandably disoriented in the midst of the many offers he finds in the media, especially online, and sometimes ends up using insufficient or even incorrect parameters to judge the quality of the service that is offered.
The decision-making process should take into account these factors, which have a direct impact on the cost of hair transplantation:
Who performs the surgery. Hair Transplantation is a medical procedure, and as such must be carried out by surgeons.
The risks. Despite being a procedure defined as "Minor Surgery", Hair Transplantation is not without risks. Medicines such as Lidocaine and Adrenaline are used which, although in common use, can cause serious problems in inexperienced hands.
The therapeutic path. It is not necessary to consider only the moment of the transplant but also the before (talk to the surgeon, receive an adequate evaluation) and the after (be followed accurately, have the possibility to be checked whenever the circumstances require it).
Legal protection. In the event that something goes wrong during the surgery, the patient must be able to obtain a solution to the problem or, in extreme cases, obtain compensation. In Italy the patient is protected, as professional insurance is mandatory for doctors.
Verification of the result. After the surgery, the patient must have the opportunity to verify that he has kept what he was promised: we refer in particular to the exact number of follicular units actually transplanted.
Insights into the cost of hair transplantation
How much does a hair transplant cost? This is certainly the most popular question when it comes to autotransplantation for the treatment of baldness in the best European centers.
Unfortunately, the multitude of conflicting and dubious information on the Web certainly does not help the potential hair transplant patient to obtain clear information on the cost of the surgery. The spreading of the most imaginative offers on the Internet, often even unlikely, continues to increase confusion about the right price for hair transplantation.
That is why we have prepared these insights: to go into detail on what hair transplantation actually is and examine all the specifications that determine the final cost. At the end of the reading, the patient will be in possession of all the necessary and sufficient information to evaluate the offers of trichological surgery with criteria.
Cost of hair transplant: the factors of the right price
To understand what determines the price of a hair transplant, it is first of all necessary to assimilate a basic concept. Hair transplantation does not consist only of the operation itself, or rather those six hours during which the patient's follicular units are taken from his donor area and grafted into the recipient area.
Rather, hair transplantation is a long and complex process within which the patient must be guided by a team of professionals who can ensure:
the guarantee of results, that is, the success of the intervention and the achievement of the aesthetic result that the patient hoped for;
intraoperative safety, essential since the FUE autotransplant is in effect a surgical intervention;
post-operative follow-up, closely linked to the previous points: the patient must be followed up regularly in the days and months following the surgery.
Guarantee of results and cost of the hair transplant
Before undergoing a hair transplant, it is very important that, during the consultation with the doctor who will perform the operation, the patient receives clear and comprehensive information on what can be expected in his case in terms of results. In particular, it is necessary to understand if the intervention can be done and if the patient's expectations correspond to the technical possibilities (in consideration, for example, of the qualities of the donor area).
