Hair Transplant Payment Plans

Often we hear that while a hair transplant operation would be the most helpful and aesthetically life saving operation for a person, the cost is too great.

Step 1: Establish Your Hair Goals

Depending on your medical reasons for losing your hair, you may want to invest in a thorough hair transplant treatment sooner rather than later.

Important Hair Transplant Questions and Considerations

hair transplant considerations
Although the finished result of a hair transplant is something to get very excited about, there is a lot of thinking that needs to be done beforehand – after all, this is a major aesthetic procedure, and one that should be conducted by a master specialist who shares your vision. Here are some key considerations to know, understand and process before undertaking a hair transplant procedure:
The more original form of hair transplantation is follicular unit transplantation, or FUT, also called the strip method. This involves taking a strip of hair from the donor site and implanting it into the thinning or balding area. The hair follicles or grafts are then microscopically dissected from the strip and placed in the recipient area. The area where the strip was removed is closed using modern trichophytic donor closure techniques. When done properly, the scar is very fine and easily covered by the existing surrounding hair.
The FUE method, or follicular unit extraction, works by excising one hair follicle at a time from the donor area using a very small circular scalpel. These follicles are then transplanted one by one into the recipient area. When done properly and using the proper tools, these incisions are so tiny that once healed cannot be seen with the naked eye. This is why the FUE method of hair transplantation is sometimes called ‘virtually scarless’.
How Much Will It Cost?
The cost of a hair transplant varies depending on what the patient desires, the difficulty of the operation, graft extraction numbers, and whether additional treatments are needed. The best way to determine the cost for your hair transplant procedure is to meet with a hair restoration surgeon for a consultation. During the consultation, make sure to estimate a reliable graft and overall price quote.
What If…?
The ‘what if’ question often goes unasked, but it is just as important as all the others. The ‘what if’ question relates to any risks associated with the procedure. Find out what they are, and what the clinic’s policy is regarding what happens if something goes wrong. It is a very rare thing, but every surgery has its risks, and hair transplantation is no different.
What Happens Next?
You must be prepared to carry out an aftercare regime once your initial procedure has been carried out. This is very important, as it will aid in the healing process and optimize your hair restoration goals. Find out all the details and be sure that you can stick to the plan before undergoing surgery.
What Will It Look Like?
If you are considering having a hair transplant, you will most likely have imagined and dreamed of what the final result will look like. Talk these ideas through with your surgeon and find out whether the look you want is achievable. You don’t want to be disappointed when you wake up from surgery, so this is an important discussion to have beforehand.

The Bald Truth: Debunking Hair Transplant Myths (Part 1)

Men and women who are currently suffering from hair loss, balding and thinning may have ‘thought’ about hair transplantation at one point or another, however, few people have the heart of a lion to undergo such treatment. Despite latest research showing that the hair transplantation market is growing rapidly, many still have false notions about the procedure. This has prevented many balding men and hair thinning women to take the initial steps to restoring their hair and self-confidence. Read on as world-renowned Hair Restoration surgeon, Dr. Yazdan, reveals 6 common myths and the opposing facts related to a hair transplant.
Myth #1: A Hair Transplant is not affordable.
Fact: The cost of a hair transplant depends on numerous factors and some surgeons will charge by the number of grafts transplanted – hence why the price can vary. At Modena Hair Restoration, Dr. Yazdan doesn’t believe in this approach and charges by case. Though a hair transplant can be a little costly, its certainly affordable and can change your life and the way you perceive yourself forever.
Myth #2: The results are unnatural.
Fact: Yes, in the beginning of times hair transplants did not look so natural with the use of “Hair Plugs” however, we have come so far in cosmetic surgery over the past few decades. In the hair transplant industry today, your results are determined by the artistic skill and experience from your hair restoration surgeon. A skillful surgeon can determine the proper angle and location to create the best plausible artistic outcome. Read how to avoid unnatural results here.
Myth #3: The larger number of grafts transplanted in a single session, the better your results.
Fact: While the goal may be to move as many hairs as possible in one session, “Mega-Sessions” however, are not advised because of certain risks. Mega-sessions that are too large run the risk of sub-optimal growth and scarring. Read our article on the risk of mega hair transplant sessions here. It’s important to have a consultation with skilled hair restoration specialist to determine the cause of hair loss and whether or not you are a candidate for a hair transplant procedure.
Myth #4: Its better have a hair transplant at the initial stages of hair loss, not when you’re older.
Fact: Generally speaking, there is a greater chance of having a successful hair transplant outcome when a patient is a little older rather than younger. It’s common for men to start seeing hair loss and even a receding hairline in their early to mid-twenties. At this time, the pattern of hair loss is still unpredictable, and the hair loss has a greater chance of being extensive in the future and may require more surgeries in the years to come.

Myth #5: Robots such as the ARTAS or NeoGraft give you better results than the human-hand.
Fact: Although many people see newer technology as being “state of the art” this is by far the truth in this case. A laser hair transplant done by a robot or mechanical device is not the route you want to go and are not generally used by the most experienced hair transplant surgeons alike Dr. Yazdan. In fact, they were created to assist or guide inexperienced or “green” physicians from grimly mistakes yet, both the ARTAS and NeoGraft have their fair share of grimly risks as well including poor graft growth as a result from the laser damaging the tissue and concerns of the NeoGraft’s suction tears the tiny graft from the connecting fat tissue which leads to transection of the grafts and significantly impacts graft hair growth. You can read more about the use and dangers of robotic machines doing hair transplants here.
Myth #6: FUT is the better method than the opposed FUE method for hair transplantation.
Fact: Any qualified & educated surgeon who has both FUE and FUT/Strip technologies available at their clinic will not necessarily favor one method over another. Each method is patient specific and is employed based on the requirement of the patient. Sometimes even a combination of the two is used in order to achieve the best possible long-term results.

Still have more doubts? No need to worry – a transparent and confidential consultation with a top hair restoration surgeon can evaluate the health of your hair and scalp to give you your specific treatment options of both surgical and/or non-surgical procedures to give you peace of mind. A good surgeon will carefully access the donor area, check if the new hair in your scalp will grow after treatment and will match the texture & quality of your existing hair and then decide whether you are suitable for the surgery or not.

How to determine how many grafts you need for hair transplant surgery

The most common questions regarding hair transplants are how many grafts are needed and how much the procedure will cost.
To get an idea of the cost of your surgery, you’ll first need to get an idea of how many grafts you’ll need. While the cost is not always directly correlated to the graft count, the two numbers are often correlated.
To best answer these questions, you should meet with an experienced and qualified hair transplant surgeon. During a consultation, the stage of hair loss, scalp and follicle health, density of hair coverage, quality of donor area, medical history, and many other factors can be evaluated to give you an accurate idea of the amount of grafts you’ll need.
An additional factor to keep in mind is that hair goals differ from patient to patient. What makes one patient happy may not make another patient happy. These goals definitely play a role in the amount of grafts needed.
For first time patients, scalp hair transplant surgeries typically range between 1,000-3,500 grafts needed. All of the factors above will determine your exact graft count needed.
