Hair transplants and hair renewal are becoming increasingly popular in the U.S. with more than 70,000 people undergoing the procedure annually, according to data from the National Center for Health Statistics.
While many patients say they are willing to spend upwards of $50,000 for a hair transplant, the procedure costs anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 depending on the patient.
In addition to the surgery itself, patients must undergo a battery of procedures, such as a hair follicle and scalp, as well as a series of skin grafts.
“This is a very complex procedure and it can be very time consuming, but we do know it is one of the most cost-effective treatments available to help people with hair loss,” said Dr. William W. Lattimore, director of the National Institute of Hair Loss and Repair.
“It’s also a very effective way to help with the hair loss associated with certain conditions, including multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple myeloma.”
