Cost and Financing
Cost of the Procedure
Selecting the hair restoration practice to perform your hair transplant procedure is a big decision and the cost for the procedure can be a driving force in making your final decision. There are many factors that influence the cost for the procedure. However, as a general rule, most hair transplant specialists charge per number of grafts for each session.
At Meshkin Medical, we charge $3.50 per graft for FUT and $7 per graft for FUE for up to 2000 grafts. The price for each graft will decrease for more than 2000 graft sessions. We do offer seasonal discounts and promotions.
How is the cost for the procedure determined?
Determining the cost of your hair transplant procedure depends on the degree of hair loss. Your donor hair has to be examined to determine the amount of quality donor hair that can be safely harvested. The donor availability and the degree of hair loss help establish the surgery session size and the actual price range. Most hair restoration practices charge an average price per graft for the harvested donor hair per session. That average price per graft is impacted by the type of procedure you choose to have, whether it is FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) Strip, or FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). All these factors are combined to determine the actual cost for your surgical hair restoration.
Are hair transplants affordable and what is an average cost?
Now, more than ever before, surgical hair restoration is affordable. Typical procedures range from $3,500 to $12,000, depending on the number of grafts and the technique used to harvest the grafts. An average cost for a procedure at Dr. Meshkin’s clinic is close to $7000. To help you plan financially, we have different seasonal discounts available. We also offer student and traveling discounts. Financing is also available through www.carecredit.com and www.lendingclub.com for clients seeking monthly finance options.
Are there any additional costs involved?
Not for the actual procedure. However, you may need to buy post op care for an additional cost and also pay for your post op medical prescription from a pharmacy.
Can I finance my procedure
You can apply at their website to find out if you qualify.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept all forms of payment including credit card, cash, cashier’s check and financing. We do not accept personal checks as a form of payment on the day of the procedure. Checks should be cleared at least two weeks prior to the procedure. To confirm the date of the procedure, a deposit is required and the remaining balance is due in full on the day of surgery.
Is there additional cost for the second procedure?
Since hair loss is progressive, you may need additional procedures in the future. The cost for the second procedure is independent from the prior surgery and is based on the number of grafts and the technique you choose to do.
Should cost be a driving factor for the procedure?
While cost may be a driving factor in your decision, you have to make sure you are getting quality care for your money spent. At Meshkin Medical, you will get the best quality hair transplant from a well recognized and experienced hair transplant specialist with the most competitive price. However, if cost is the only factor, whatever you pay for a bad hair transplant is way too much.
