How Much Does A Hair Transplant Cost?

edmonton hair transplant prices - dr anil sharma mdWhen 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. The number of grafts can change dramatically from one person to another, and the best technique to use for the process depends on the patient’s goals, and the severity of the condition.

Our aim at The Sharma Skin & Hair Surgery Clinic is to restore your hair as close to its natural state as possible. We begin by conducting a detailed consultation to identify every variable with our patients in order to find the best solution possible for each individual case.

Traditional Hair Transplant Pricing Systems

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, or the technique used.

Many doctors providing these treatments in regions like Turkey or India price themselves low, 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.

Everybody’s Hair Loss Is Different

As mentioned above, nobodies hair loss is ever the same. Everybody’s head has a different shape, different natural hairlines, and variable hair thickness. The cause of the hair loss is often different as well, which is an important consideration to make when determining treatment.

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.

Why We Don’t Price Hair Transplants Per Graft

Based on these factors, 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.

How We Determine The Cost Of A Hair Transplant

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 (can be between 1 and 4)
  • The Shape and contour of the natural hairline
  • The techniques that are best suited for the patient (strip harvest, ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant, or FUE/FUG/FIT harvest).
  • The density of the patient’s natural hair follicles
  • 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

Hair Transplant Techniques

We offer a range of hair transplant techniques to best suit our patients. As mentioned previously, everybody’s hair loss is different. This requires that we offer different solutions to the same problem.

The FUE Technique

The most popular technique we offer at the Sharma Clinic is the FUE technique (stands for Follicular Unit Extraction). This is the most effective transplantation technique, suitable for large areas of hair loss. It works by shaving strips off hair follicles off the back of the neck, and then spacing them out across the bare areas of the scalp. It requires a few weeks healing time for the hair to fill in and return to normal, but has a higher success rate than other treatment options.

The No-Shave Technique

Another popular option is the “no-shave technique”, also referred to as the “no-cut” technique. It involves taking small samples of hair to make “windows” as the donor hair, which remains covered by the surrounding hair, making them less noticeable than strip harvesting or FUE transplants.

This is a great option for women and men who wish to have bare spots touched up, but don’t have a few weeks to wait before the hair grows back again. This is perfect if you need to go back to work right away and don’t need to cover your hair while it heals. It allows you to return to your normal life without looking very different at all after the surgery.

Having flexibility on treatment options and techniques allows Dr. Sharma to provide more personalised care for every patient.

Budget Hair Transplants Prices Overseas

There are many low budget hair transplant clinics available, especially in places like Turkey and India, however, it’s important to remember that people looking for a clinic to do their hair transplants are not akin to shopping for clothes or electronics.

This is surgery, it’s permanent, and it’s your everyday appearance. This is a procedure that needs to be done right the first time and in a way that you will forever be pleased with the results.

It’s hard to fix a hair transplant that has been performed poorly, but easy to maintain one that has been done right the first time.

Doing it right involves time, skill, and flexibility on the number of grafts and techniques used. We can estimate the number of grafts needed to cover an area with computers, but the details that matter, like your natural hairline contour, and graft distribution requires “in the moment” judgement of a skilled surgeon. This is something a computer estimate cannot deliver but is the part that matters most.

Not all hair transplantation clinics in Turkey or India are low price clinics, but in order to find a place that actually delivers the type of quality they advertise, you need to look deeper than their ad campaign. Consider what it takes to do a surgery like this, and how important it is to have it done absolutely correctly from start to finish, and in such a way that will give your hairline the artistic aesthetic is deserved.

Additionally, travelling to Istanbul, Mumbai, or Delhi for a hair transplant will require you to pay additional fees for travel expenses like air fares, hotel costs, and transportation. Even with a cheap hair transplant, the trip can end up costing more than normal by the time all of this is taken into account.

Hair Transplant Travel Reimbursement Program

For our overseas or out of province patients, we have developed a travel reimbursement program. We will cover the hotel costs for two nights with a procedure covering over 1500 grafts. Contact Dr. Sharma’s office today for details on the travel reimbursement program.

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 a financing option to accommodate the needs of these patients. For qualified individuals, you can have the benefits of a restored hairline immediately.
