Hair Transplant Cost and the New Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Procedure
The Bosley LaserComb, Propecia® (a prescription drug for men only) and Minoxidil (part of Bosley Professional Strength for Men and Bosley Professional Strength for Women) are all hair loss treatments that could be part of your complete hair restoration treatment plan as decided by you and your Bosley physician.
These FDA approved treatments along with the only permanent solution to hair loss, hair transplant surgery, result in a perfectly natural look and restored hairline that is virtually undetectable.
One of the most recent advancements in permanent hair restoration is the follicular unit extraction procedure.
The best candidates for the FUE procedure are:
1. Patients interested in a smaller procedure, one typically up to around 1,000 grafts
2. Patients where the donor supply is limited
3. Patients where scalp elasticity is limited
4. Patients who need or want to wear their hair short
5. Patients who don’t mind having their donor hair clipped short at the time of the procedure
Using the FUE technique, the Bosley physician extracts individual follicles that contain 1-3 hairs. These follicles are taken from the donor area and moved to areas of thinning or baldness. This differs from the FUT procedure where follicles are dissected microscopically from the donor strip that has already been removed from the patient.
The cost of Bosley permanent hair restoration is as individual as the patient and is based on a variety of factors. However, generally speaking, the cost of a hair transplant is based on the number of grafts transplanted in the procedure. The greater the number of grafts, the higher the cost.
Your final hair transplant cost will be based on a few factors and can only be provided by a Bosley physician.
These factors include: your current level of hair loss, donor hair availability, the characteristics of the available donor hair and the results you desire.
