If you battle with hair loss and have arrived at the decision to have a hair transplant, one of your very first questions will be: How much does a hair transplant cost? Below, we give you an overview on how hair transplants are priced and factors you should consider when comparing prices and providers.

If you have thinning hair or expanding bald spots, you may already have tried different remedies promising thicker and more voluminous hair. No one wants to be the bald guy, and what is there to lose anyway?

So you might have bought a special shampoo meant to stimulate hair growth.

You might have splurged on a new hair stylist who all of your friends swear by.

Perhaps you’ve also raided your kitchen to concoct hair thickening mixtures from eggs, olive oil, honey, avocados, and, if the Internet is to be believed, even onions. The list of surefire hair loss remedies seems to be as long as the human desire for lustrous thick hair is strong.

If any of the above have worked for you, great! You are now the proud owner of a thick mane of hair. Provided you’ve gotten the smell out, you may now begin your new life.

But if you’re still less than happy with your receding hairline, or if you find that you only deceive yourself with an elaborate comb-over routine, keep reading.

Hair Transplant Cost: How Much is it and Does it Work?

As in any other area of life, the simple answer is this: You get what you pay for. The cheaper and more “home-made” the proposed remedy, the less likely it is to work. But is the opposite true as well? If you pay for an expensive hair replacement treatment, will it work?

You might not trust our answer, as we are in the hair replacement business, and have been for many years. But seeing a steady stream of patients come and go has given us a great vantage point from which to observe hair replacement candidates.

This is what we’ve seen: During an initial consultation, many clients express shock at the proposed hair transplant cost. Paying $5,000 to $6,000, perhaps even more, to sit at a hair clinic for the better part of a day and have hair grafts extracted and reinserted in the vulnerable areas of your scalp seems like a big commitment. Especially when you think of other uses this money could go towards – a substantial down payment for a new car, or a vacation in Italy.

We’re not going to sugarcoat it – hair transplants aren’t cheap.

But this is what we’ve also seen: Once a patient has received a personal treatment plan and can imagine the results 3-6 month down the road, the excitement builds. The day of the procedure can’t come soon enough, and once the hair grafts are placed, watching the hair come in where it hasn’t grown in years is a special feeling only people who have struggled with hair loss can fully appreciate.

Can you Put a Price on Newfound Confidence?

This is what we’ve learned while watching countless patients submit to the magical hands of our hair replacement specialist: Gaining new confidence in your looks and loving again what you see in the mirror every morning isn’t something you can easily put a price on. Remember those credit card ads from the 90s? Here is how they might sound for hair replacement:

  • Highly praised hair thickening shampoo: $12.99
  • A fancy new hairstyle: $79.99
  • A new spring in your step with a confident swagger you haven’t felt in years: Priceless

Not all hair transplantation costs the same. There are differences between what’s called FUE (follicular unite extraction, also called grafting) and FUT (follicular unit transplantation, also called strip method). FUT tends to be a bit more cost-effective as the procedure itself is shorter, but it requires anesthesia and a longer recovery, which may not be ideal for some patients. FUE hair transplant cost is typically quoted in price per graft, with anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000 grafts needed to restore a full head of hair.

Ways to Lower Your Hair Transplant Cost

If you find the upfront cost prohibitive, you might inquire about financing packages. Many hair treatment centers offer interest-free financing, allowing you to spread out the cost in installments of a few hundred dollars at a time.

You might also find that it pays to be flexible and shop around. Some hair replacement providers offer special discounts at certain times of the year, and if you can wait a little bit, such a special offer might lower your cost drastically.

The bottom line is this. While the pros of a hair transplant are evident – enough celebrities have had them that we know just by opening our eyes that they’re working – the downside is the relatively high price. For many people who have struggled with hair loss, the investment is worth it. Others may make peace with their receding hairline and rather buy a new car.

Only you can be the judge of what’s right for you.

We all love summer and hate to see it come to an end. As we enjoy a last peaceful evening on the patio grilling burgers and sipping our beer, we aren’t ready to get into the back to school hustle quite yet. Oh but to linger some more under the stars listening to the cacophony of cicadas without any homework to supervise or soccer practices to drive to! To take the family out for a leisurely ice cream rather than bust to Staples to snatch the last 2-inch binder from another shopper cutting an equally daunting supply lists!

To make it easier, we at the Hair Doctor have come up with the perfect reason to celebrate the end of summer: For a very limited time, we are offering $1,000 off for any NeoGraft hair transplants of 2,000 grafts or more. To take advantage of this hair transplant special, all you have to do is schedule your personal consultation as soon as possible so that we can evaluate you and develop a treatment plan. As soon as you have booked your procedure, your special discount is locked in.

Are you worried about your receding hairline? Now that the hat you’ve been wearing all summer has come off, have you discovered more spots of thinning hair on the top of your head? We know how alarming this can seem. You don’t consider yourself any older than the previous year. You might even be more active than ever before. But hair loss can make a big dent on your youthful appearance. All of a sudden, you might feel like your age is showing. You’ve tried combing your hair a different way. You’ve tried a special shampoo your hairdresser has sworn will make a difference, but you have a nagging feeling it’s the same old stuff in a fancy – and expensive – new bottle.

It may be time to be bold and think big: Reverse your hair loss once and for all with a hair transplant!

“Oh, but I’m not ready for a big medical procedure,” you may say. The good news is, with a NeoGraft hair transplant you hardly have any downtime. Instead of removing and transplanting an entire piece of you scalp, as is customary with other methods, NeoGraft hair restoration is done with much more finesse: Using pneumatic pressure, a technician uses a hand-held device to extract individual follicles of hair from the back of your head – also called the donor area – and to reinsert them in the areas of your scalp where you want to grow hair. There are no incisions or scars, and your downtime is restricted to the day of your procedure and perhaps a day or two of recovery, if any. Many of our patients have returned back to work the next day.

Just because you suffer from hair loss doesn’t mean you will go bald. Today’s technology makes it possible for you to regrow a full hair of natural hair, and your local Hair Doctor has the necessary experience to create great results. Call now – you’ll never find such good hair transplant special prices again!


Hello, 2016! It’s just about time to talk about New Year’s Resolutions.

Aren’t you a tiny bit excited to start on a clean slate with a brand-new year stretching in front of  you?

You might have already put up all the Christmas lights, changed a few light bulbs over the holidays, and generally gotten a head start with your to-do list. Perhaps you’ve even made a few – gulp! – New Year’s Resolutions.

But if you’re like me, the one thing you’ll probably procrastinate about till kingdom come is to think about having any kind of “procedure” done. The word alone is enough to send shivers up your spine. It evokes bland waiting rooms with dog-eared magazines you’d never open unless it was a dire emergency (i.e. your phone battery dying just as you’ve been told to take a seat and wait for your “procedure”), being told unpleasant truths about the need to eat more vegetables, and a general waste of time you’d much rather spend with your feet up watching Monday Night Football.

To overcome all that, any “procedure” would have to be well worth it. It would have to be amazing. It would have to be like the mother of all Nachos Supreme sitting in front of you, dripping cheese, with the Super Bowl about to kick off.

What if I told you about such a procedure, one that is worthy of making your New Year’s Resolutions list and one that makes it totally worth having, even though it’s the last thing you really want to do?

If you listen to our customers, our NeoGraft hair restoration procedure is the best thing they’ve ever done. It’s easy, it’s fast, and it produces amazing results. For some, it has proven life-changing.

Listen to what David Reed, a Nashville radio commentator has to say about his NeoGraft hair transplant from the Hair Doctor in Nashville:

David had actually had a previous hair transplant and wasn’t happy with it. In his words, his experience at the Hair Doctor “was light years beyond the procedure I’d had in the past. It was simpler, it was quicker, it was better, there was very little recovery time, there were no stitches. This, to me, is the only way to go.”

Not to be outdone, Eric Hasseltine, Memphis radio announcer and “Voice of the Grizzlies,” has the following to say about his hair restoration by Hair Doctor of Memphis:

If like Eric or David you experience thinning hair, a receding hairline, or bald spots, you may have started thinking about hair restoration, but any kind of “procedure” may have scared you off. And plenty of scary stories abound if you look into the matter. You might have heard of the “strip method,” whereby a patch of your hair is transplanted from the back of your head to the top but can leave behind an unsightly linear scar. As you can imagine, relocating a piece of your scalp in this fashion is not the most enjoyable way to spend your day.

NeoGraft hair restoration is in an entirely different league from that. Using the advanced technology of the NeoGraft machine, our technician is able to extract individual follicles of your hair from areas with plenty of growth and artfully transplant them to the recipient area. It is so minimally-invasive that it can be performed with just a local anesthetic, and most of our patients are back to work or their regular activities the very next day.
