Hair Replacement Cost
There are many factors that affect hair replacement cost at the National Hair Institute. Both men and women lose hair on different levels and as a result they will need different hair replacements. Hair replacement cost will be different for each person as there will be differing amounts of hair that needs replacing.
The National Hair Institute has hair transplant procedures that are guaranteed to provide a permanent solution to hair loss. Whether you have slight hair loss or extreme balding, the National Hair Institute will work out a suitable procedure and hair replacement cost.
Before the hair replacement cost is decided, patients undergo a hair loss assessment from our qualified counsellor. During the assessment, the counsellor will carefully go through each option and help determine which hair transplant procedure is suited to your requirements.

The National Hair Institute Consultation
Once you have visited the National Hair Institute for your hair loss concerns, we will take the time to sit down with you and discuss an overall solution. The consultation process is more than just working out the hair replacement cost, it is designed so you can obtain detailed information and walk away with informed knowledge.
Current Hair Loss Situation
During the consultation we will assess your current hair loss and determine the severity on the hair loss scales. Men’s hair loss is determined by the Norwood Scale whereas women’s hair loss is determined by the Ludwig scale.
Assessment of Donor Region
The maximum amount of hair that can be obtained out of one FUG procedure is determined by the level of density, flexibility and length of a patient’s donor region (back and sides of the scalp.
The National Hair Institute will determine the number of follicular units growing per square cm in the donor region. Typical donor density regions are:
- Below Average density 45-59 per cm²
- Medium density (most common) 60-74 per cm²
- High density 75-90 per cm²
The term donor flexibility is defined as the ability to move the skin located within a patient’s donor region in different directions. The easier and further that the skin can be moved, the more hair that can be obtained by the hair transplant surgeon on the day.
The National Hair Institute will measure the length of your donor region to determine the maximum number of follicular unit grafts that can be obtained from one procedure. This will help to create the hair replacement cost, as it is based on the follicular unit grafts inserted.
The characteristics of your hair will also affect the hair replacement cost and will be discussed during the consultation. The National Hair Institute will work out your hair type, colour and shaft diameter.
Maximum Follicular Unit Grafts
After assessment of the donor region and above factors, the maximum number of follicular unit grafts can be obtained. An estimate of hair replacement cost and time can then be given.
You will have the opportunity to indicate which hair replacement option you desire. We will also assess which hair replacement will bets suit your hair loss.
After the consultation has taken place, the National Hair Institute will also send a personal assessment to ensure you have all the information to make a decision you’re comfortable with.
Factors That Affect Pricing
Hair replacement cost for each patient at the National Hair Institute will be based on the number of grafts performed during the procedure, the patient’s hair loss history and expectations of hair re-growth. The National Hair Institute understands that not everyone loses the same amount of hair, which is why we tailor our hair transplants to individual circumstances.
Hair replacement cost will be determined by the doctor or client counsellor during the consultation stage. Hair replacement cost is dependent on the size and area of balding to be treated, the density of hair hoped to be achieved, the density of hair in the donor areas and the elasticity of the skin.
Not everyone has the same hair loss problems or hair and skin type, which is why it is important to distinguish the hair replacement cost according to the individual. During the consultation, mentioned above, patients will be informed of the number of grafts that need to be removed for the procedure to be a success. You will also be told the hair replacement cost depending on your hair loss severity.
A hair replacement can cost anywhere between $10,000 to $30,000. Hair transplants for men will be slightly more expensive than women’s as the balding is usually more sever. Hair replacement cost varies from person to person and the prices listed above shouldn’t be used to estimate the hair replacement cost at the National Hair Institute. The hair transplant cost might be dramatically less depending on the treatment you require and what we can help you obtain.
When thinking about hair replacement cost, you should keep in mind what you’re really searching for is value for money. Hair replacements that provide quick solutions may cost less, but will not provide the satisfying results a hair transplant can offer. The hair replacement cost may seem higher at first, but will offer viable results in the long run.
So when considering your hair replacement cost, keep in mind you only have one opportunity to get it right the first time.
