Everyone is different and it follows that everyone’s hair is different – right down to the DNA level. That means that every hair transplant is different too. Hair transplant pricing can vary considerably as a result.
To begin with, it depends on the amount of baldness that you wish or need to cover. Some individuals may have only a small amount of thinning hair in a small patch and so will need less work than someone with a large bald patch. When it comes to hair transplant pricing you can’t just call up on the phone and “get a quote.” It’s not like buying tires!
Furthermore, there are a range of different procedures for carrying out hair transplant surgery. There is the Follicular Unit Extraction process, Follicular Unit Transplantation, Robotic Hair Transplantation, Low Level Light Therapy, Platelet-Rich Plasma Hair Growth Therapy, the EPIC™ Procedure, all of which are offered by Silicon Valley Hair Institute as opposed to other hair transplant surgeons who may only offer one procedure.
Then there is the question of exactly what you want to achieve. You may simply want to enrich the look of your eyebrows. More and more women are looking for pubic hair transplantation. For many years, women have been persuaded to undertake laser hair removal or waxing to remove hair from the pubic area. However, recently some celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Cameron Diaz have promoted the idea of “full growth” in this area and as a result it appears to be coming back into fashion. Some Asian and Italian women have also expressed interest from a cultural point of view.
Using the ARTAS robotic procedure developed by Dr Canales and his team, healthy hair follicles are removed from the scalp in a process which leaves no visible scars and are then implanted into the pubic area one at a time. The process is virtually painless and the hair will begin to grow in about 3 – 4 months producing a lush growth which can last for a lifetime.
In some instances – not many, it has to be said – it is possible that a hair transplant may be covered by insurance. For example, if you have suffered hair loss as a result of a car accident or a medical condition, it might be the case that you could get reimbursed from your insurer.
