If you’re one of the millions of individuals affected by hair loss, you probably have given some thought to hair transplants and other hair restoration procedures. You might have already even done some research.
But if you haven’t made those steps yet, and are just starting now, then you should at least know the very basics. So to help you get an understanding of the cost of a hair transplant, what it entails, and how long one lasts, we made this guide for you.
Hair Loss Basics
Most hair specialists will tell you this pretty basic fact: hair loss is very common amongst men. There are more balding men than one may think, and some 50% of men 50 or older will suffer from hair falling off their heads in some capacity.
And while some might accept the change and shave their heads, others decide to counter it with a variety of hair treatments, like a hair transplant.
Hair Transplants Are Permanent
Which brings us to this next point. If you are serious about getting the procedure done, you need to know that it is not simple to reverse. It is meant to permanently mask any balding issues. And it would require many surgeries to reverse this procedure, once you start it, it’s nearly impossible to reverse or stop and look the same as before.
There Is a Window For Failure
You should also be aware that there is a chance that the grafts won’t take or stick, and they will fail. Typically, however, a large amount of these grafts will take and they will cover up those that didn’t. This means that the failures are easily dismissed.
It Can Be Costly
But not extremely so. The cost of a hair transplant isn’t as large as you’d think, if you do the math and average out the cost-per-year. If you get a craft at 30, costing $12,000, and live to be 70, then that transplant lasted 40 years. That averages out to $300 a year, or $25 per month. That’s a significantly cheaper way to look at it.
Hair transplants are used by many to deal with the reality of hair loss, and in the end it’s up to you what happens moving forward. If you want to undergo the procedure, then do so, if you want to learn more, reach out. We’ll be happy to help with either option.
