Male pattern baldness is a common problem. However, modern medicine has gone so far that a hair transplant yields 98% . The methods of transplantation are different, so the prices are differentiated. The average cost of hair transplant on the head is 60,000 – 80,000 Rupees, the price for working with eyebrows reaches 115 thousand Rupees.
Applied transplantation techniques
Clients are offered 3 methods of hair transplantation:
FUT technique. It is also called an operating room. It consists in cutting off a flap of skin with a scalpel from the back of the head. The latter is divided into grafts – parts with hair follicles. These grafts are implanted in the place of baldness. This operation is fast, it is budgetary, but it has drawbacks. So, men cannot afford a short haircut after it, since a scar is visible. Repeated surgery is often not possible due to damage to the occipital region. Hair sometimes does not take root due to damage. In addition, the healing period is the longest. Guaranteed result 50% .
Method FUE . During this operation, skin areas with hair follicles are removed using a special device called a rotor mechanism with a rotating tube at the end. Scars in the places of removal from the occipital area remain minimal – 1.5–5 mm, just the diameter of the piercer. A transplant lasts longer than in the first case, and is more expensive. At the same time, the survival rate of donor hair is higher, and the wounds heal faster. The degree of survival is up to 70-80% .
HFE technique . It is similar to FUE operation, but the fence and landing are carried out entirely manually with micro-needle tools. This option is the most painless, as it does not require cutting the skin. Skin damage is minimal, micro-wounds remain, which heal quickly and without traces. During the procedure, follicular associations are seized. Hair survival reaches 98% . Thanks to the manual method, donor hair is placed at a natural angle with natural density. The cost of the operation is slightly different from the FUE method. This operation allows for a second transplant.
What factors influence cost
The chosen technique.
The degree of alopecia (baldness).
Transplant area. In addition to hair on the head, eyelashes and a beard are implanted. For example, working with eyebrows requires jewelry accuracy. In this regard, the price for each graft and follicular union is higher.
Clinic and service level. In addition to making a profit, the medical center focuses on reimbursing the costs of specialists, purchasing and updating equipment and supplies, and arranging the interior.
The number of transplants, which depends on the transplantation method used. The HFE technique gives a greater density of donor hair than other methods. At the same time, a greater number of transplants, scrupulous jewelry work and a long operation time are required. As a result, the price goes higher than FUT.
Region of service provision. It all depends on the level of competition in the city. In big cities, even trichology centers make decent discounts due to the large number of clinics. In remote regions, for example, in the Far East, prices are higher due to low competition. Therefore, it is often more profitable to transplant in the capital. It should be borne in mind that in the regions, as a rule, operations are carried out only according to the FUT technique.

Where to apply for a service
Meanwhile, the choice of the clinic should be approached thoroughly, especially when transplanting hair from the back of the head with the surgical method. After all, donor material is limited, and therefore an unsuccessful operation will not only fail to produce results, but will also deprive the follicle for further transplantation. In general, the survival of hair depends on the degree of intervention and the amount of work.
