What is the Cost of Hair Transplantation in the UK?

Modern techniques have made it very effective to deal with hair loss. One of the solutions that are now available is a procedure known as hair transplantation. The cost of doing hair transplantation is probably one of the greatest factors that many people consider before making a decision whether to use the procedure as remedy for hair loss.

When the procedure of hair transplant was initially introduced, the cost was probably one that only very few individuals could afford. Although the prices have gone down, the cost is still relatively high, and you will be safer doing a proper budget as part of your preparation for hair transplant.

In the UK, one of the major factors that determine how much you are likely to incur in costs is the extent of hair loss. The bigger the area that requires treatment, the more money you should be prepared to spend on the procedure.

Charges are usually calculated per graft which ranges between £2 and £5 per graft of hair. The more the grafts needed for a successful transplant, the more the money you will spend on the treatment. One other important factor that determines cost is the reputation, experience and quality of the surgeon you choose to do your hair transplant.

hair transplant is a type of surgery you should look at


A hair transplant is a type of surgery in which a dermatologist will move part of your hair from a healthy site to a part of your scalp that is balding. This usually happens under anesthesia, and should be treated like any other surgery. In fact, as such, be advised that you can expect some side effects, and that is the subject of this post. 

The first side effect will most likely be that your scalp will experience a degree of soreness. So your doctor will prescribe medicine for you to deal with the soreness–such as Tylenol, aspirin, and other painkillers, as well as antibiotics. Yet this is only temporary, and the pain usually leaves once the site of the surgery heals. Another side effect of such surgery will be that there may be bleeding from the site. If this happens in excess of what seems normal to you, check back in with your doctor. 

You may have an infection. Infections, if left untreated, can lead to other complications, such as death. You also may experience a lack of feeling in the area where you received the surgery. The hair that has been transplanted also may temporarily fall out. You may be able to reverse that by using monoxydil, or Rogaine. 

In Conclusion Every case is different. 

Consult a dermatologist who can tell you whether you’re even a good candidate for this procedure. If your concern is male pattern baldness, or female pattern baldness, the answer is most likely yes, unless your condition is due to chemotherapy, or there is not enough hair in other parts of your body to cause the surgery to be a success.
