Sharma Skin & Hair Surgery price guide
Delivering natural looking results paired with incredible service & care.
When determining the cost of a hair transplant in Edmonton, there are a few key variables that need to be taken into account. The truth is that not all hair loss is the same, which means treatment needs to be determined individually for each patient, making static hair transplant pricing protocols both difficult and ineffective. Our aim at Sharma Skin & Hair Surgery is to restore your hair as close to its natural state as possible. For reference, the average hair transplant patient will require over 1,400 grafts.
How Much Will My Surgery Cost?
The typical hair transplant is around the $10,000 mark, but it truly depends on how large of an area they are restoring. Smaller areas can be as low as $6,000, but larger areas – like the frontal hairline & midzone will be more. If you are hoping to get an idea on cost, a good starting point is looking through our before & after gallery for a similar case to your own. You can also visit our Hair Transplant Financing page to compare which ‘graft amount’ bracket you may be in. The majority of the price for each hair transplant procedure is the number of grafts being relocated. Outside of that and a small fee for our post-care solution, there are no additional fees.
Monthly Payments for Your Procedure
Being a Medical Clinic we do not have an in-house financing team or offer payment plans for our surgeries. For this reason, we have partnered with Beautifi, Canada’s specialized provider of plastic surgery, medical and cosmetic procedure financing. Their goal is to give Canadians access to surgeries and procedures they want or need, without having to worry about the large up front cost.

Payment Plans Financing Hair Transplant Surgery
Many of our patients want to enjoy the confidence and improved self-image that comes with getting their hairline back, but prefer to pay monthly for the treatment so they can receive the treatment sooner. We have brought together financing options to accommodate the needs of these patients. For qualified individuals, you can have the benefits of a restored hairline immediately.
Hair loss journeys
No two people will have the same experience & treatment when dealing with hair loss
As mentioned, hair loss varies from patient to patient. Everybody has a different shape of head, different natural hairline, and varying hair thickness. Causes of hair loss are often different as well. These are all important considerations when determining the right treatment for each patient.
Treating all hair loss the same is going to leave many people with misshapen or awkward hairlines, inconsistent hair thickness between treated areas and existing hair, poor longevity of the treatment, and will often “look” as though surgery has taken place. The best hair transplant surgery is the one that nobody will notice. If your hairline is restored following its natural growth patterns, nobody will ever know you had surgery at all… this is the goal. The quality of this work demands individual patient consideration and a high level of surgical and artistic skill on behalf of the surgeon.
Dr. Sharma will consider the following when determining the cost of the surgery:
- The areas affected by hair loss
- The most likely cause of the hair loss
- The number of grafts per follicular unit (between 1 & 4)
- The techniques that are best suited for the patient (strip harvest, or F.U.E./F.U.G./F.I.T. harvest)
- The Shape and contour of the natural hairline
- The specific goals the patient wishes to achieve
- How coarse or fine the hair is
- How straight or curly the hair grows
- The status of the donor area of hair
Traditional Hair Transplant Pricing
The traditional method of hair transplant pricing is based on a “per-graft” basis. Many hair transplant clinics in India or Turkey, (well-known areas offering budget hair transplants) base their hair transplant pricing on this traditional pricing system.
The problem is that by limiting the treatment to a specific number of grafts you’re not going to get the natural looking hairline you deserve in every case. Getting the hairline right requires an artful eye and flexibility on the number of grafts given, and/or the technique used.
Many doctors providing these treatments in regions like Turkey or India offer low prices and use a standard protocol-based approach to hair transplantation surgeries in their clinics. This is great for reducing the overall cost of a hair transplant, but it doesn’t effectively address the patient as an individual. It often fails to deliver the highest quality results that are demanded of a procedure like hair transplantation.
What is a Graft?
A graft is a collection of hair follicles. During a hair transplant procedure, Dr. Sharma redistributes the follicles which can contain single or multiple hairs. During your hair transplant, we use a motorized micro punch to loosen and relocate each graft the desired area.
One Price Doesn't Fit All
Based on these factors, creating a one-size-fits-all pricing per graft comes with numerous problems and limits the surgeon to a specific set of parameters. Using more individually tailored pricing plans allows surgeons like Dr. Sharma to perform his art more fluidly, and delivers far better results. He has been doing it this way for over 10 years and has found nothing but positive results.
Dr Sharma prefers to price hair transplants based on the individual needs of the patient, taking all of these variables into consideration to develop a fair price for the patient’s goals.
