The cost of procedure
Today, the cost of a hair transplant is a vastly better value than ever before. Increased competition combined with the increased ability of a specialized clinic to produce large sessions of follicular units at reduced hair transplant costs has resulted in patients getting better results and increased density at lower prices.
Just a few years ago it was not unusual for a clinic to charge as much as $15 per graft, while providing patients with only small sessions of a few hundred grafts that achieved limited density and fullness. Today hair restoration clinics typically provide free no obligation consultations, with surgical sessions priced either per graft or by the session. Hair transplant costs typically cost between $3.00 to $8.00 per graft, with $5 to $6 per graft being about average. It is normal for the price per graft to drop as the size of the surgical session increases. Many clinics will offer a reduced rate per graft once a certain surgical session size (i.e. 1,000 or 2,000 grafts) is exceeded.
Although hair transplant surgery is not inexpensive, it can be the best hair restoration value given that the results are natural and last a life time. The cost of non surgical solutions like a hair system or hair loss medications can exceed the cost of hair restoration surgery when the long term costs are compared.
As a leading Los Angeles hair transplant clinic, we carry out a maximum of one hair transplant procedure per day; this allows the surgical team to carry out their work to a meticulous standard with no set time frame. A detailed personal estimate is always prepared following this first consultation and with relief; patients discover that despite the highly skilled intricacy of the procedure, the cost is in no way prohibitive. Typically, the cost of the procedure equates to that of a family holiday but, of course, unlike a holiday, the benefits of hair restoration are permanent.
Hair Transplant procedure cost depends on these factors:
- The size of the area that needs to be transplanted
- The degree of hair loss
- The amount of thickness you wish to achieve
- How quickly you want to achieve your final goal
Some patients want to have as many grafts as possible transplanted at one time. Others choose a more gradual approach consisting of a group of smaller procedures, reducing the initial cost and allowing future consideration of how far to proceed.
The cost per graft can be as low as $3. The cost per graft is greatly reduced as the number of grafts per procedure increases. We assert that you will get more value for your money at our office than you will get at any of our competitors, including the so-called bargain-priced clinics.
Consider not the cost per graft but the cost per graft that grows; you cant get a better value than you do with the vastly experienced, scientifically dedicated artistic staff at Beverly Hills Hair Restoration. The price per transplanted graft may not be the price you ultimately pay if the procedure is not performed properly. You want to pay for each transplanted graft that grows hair. Additionally, you want that hair to be properly placed with the natural direction of your hair growth.
At Beverly Hills Hair Restoration, we dont dissect the follicular graft units into smaller grafts and charge more. This is called graft splitting. We charge per graft and actual follicular graft.
If you lose your grafts due to poor or careless technique, you lose forever your living donor tissue, a limited, non-replaceable resource. These facts mean that many people end up paying much more to so-called bargain clinics for each hair that actually grows.
The bottom line: The VALUE lies in the EXPERTISE
We spare no expense in our goal of maintaining our reputation as one of the best clinics in the industry.
Our staff uses only the most current and powerful microscopes and operating lenses to separate the grafts and preserve the follicles, resulting in the full growth of the most natural appearing hair. This makes Dr. Kahens results so natural with the use of powerful microscopes to dissect the follicles. We charge per graft and not per hair. This has become a recent advertising technique for some hair transplant clinics. It is almost impossible to count the transplanted hairs but possible to count the transplanted grafts. You will end up paying more if you pay per hair.
Do the math: On average, there are 2.5 hairs per follicular graft. These qualities explain our enviable reputation and our long list of celebrity patients ? particularly those who spend their lives in front of cameras. We hope this helps you to make a more informed decision about what is best for you. If you acknowledge our reputation and history of success and you still seek a bargain, we are probably not the right clinic for you.

A quality custom hair replacement system on average costs $1,200 and needs to be replaced about once a year. In addition, a hair replacement system requires regular upkeep and reattachment every 5 to 6 weeks at about $75 per visit or $675 per year. Thus the cost of buying and maintaining quality hair replacement systems over 15 years is approximately $28,125.00 ($1,200 plus $675 in annual upkeep = $1,875 x 15 years = $28,125.00). This total cost well exceeds the typical cost of surgical hair restoration.
