Before

This primarily depends on the quality of hair on your donor site. You are required to have a certain amount of hair density at the back of your head so we can transfer it to the desired area. If you have a large demand for density or coverage at the front of your head, then you need a large amount of eligible donor grafts in the back.

We are open from 9:00am – 5:30pm weekdays with occasional evening and weekend dates when required.

Hair transplants are commonly charged per graft. More grafts does not always mean a better result. Placement, skill, and precision are huge factors in your end result. Our Hair Transplants start at $6,000.
