How Much Does Hair Transplant Surgery Cost?

One of the most commonly asked questions we hear first is, ‘how much does hair transplant surgery cost‘?
The cost for hair transplant surgery at Utah Facial Plastics is variable depending on the method and number of grafts needed to help you achieve your goals. Often times there is a range that we offer with the low end being enough to cover your area(s) of concern and the higher end for maximum density.
The strip-method, or FUT (follicular unit transplantation), works well to restore hair loss and makes up approximately half of the hair transplant surgery cases performed by Dr. Thompson. This option involves a strip of scalp being removed from the back head to obtain the grafts from that are then transplanted to bald or thinning areas of the scalp. Cost for this technique is based upon how many grafts you need. A smaller session (500-1000 grafts) ranges from $2-4000, a medium session (1000-1500 grafts) ranges from $4-5000 and a larger session (1500-3000 grafts) typically ranges from $5500 to $8000.
For FUE (follicular unit extraction), where follicles are extracted one at a time, the cost is more due to the advanced technology we use with NeoGraft. This option leaves no linear scar on the back of the head and comes with a quicker recovery. NeoGraft also involves particular technicians that aide in the extraction of the grafts and have years of experience with NeoGraft procedures as they are assisting with them multiple times weekly across the country. At this time, Utah Facial Plastics charges a flat $6 per graft for this method up to 1200 grafts and then $5 per graft for any amount on top of that.
It’s important to keep in mind that these prices are as of August 2018 and are subject to change in the future.
