As we age we tend to experience natural hair loss, which is really not anyone one’s fault but just the way nature works. Others experience hair loss due to different factors such as poor diet, stress, health issues, hormonal changes or some medications. No matter what the cause is, hair loss can be quite stressful and a bald scalp is not what anyone wants for the rest of their lives. If you are suffering from chronic hair loss, the good news is that there is a permanent way to deal with this condition. Hair transplant surgery is one of the most effective ways to reverse the effects of balding. The surgery involves taking individual hair follicle from the back of the head and putting it at the front of the head or where ever there is a need in a process known as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
Hair loss surgery is a very simple procedure and will mostly not require a theatre. Most surgeons will perform such a procedure in their offices under local anaesthesia. Once the surgery is over it will take you a few days to recover and you will need to take pain medications for a couple days. It is that simple!
The cost of hair transplant surgery will normally depend on the amount of hair that needs to be transplanted. Of course a large area will need more hair than a small area and thus the cost will be more. A normal transplant will require on average between 1,000 and 3,000 grafts. Cost will also be determined by the type of hair surgery you choose. Generally most surgeries will range from $4,000 to $15,000.
Cost Difference in Australia and India
If you choose to get the hair surgery done in Australia 1 scalp graft with a good doctor will cost somewhere between 6-10 AUD. But if you get it done in India you will pay about 2-3 AUD per scalp graft. Despite the low cost in India, the quality of the procedure is quite high. In fact the doctors in India tend to be more experienced than most doctors in Australia as they treat triple the number of patients any Australian doctor treats in a month.
When deciding whether to cure hair loss by going the hair transplant surgery way, it is important to base your decision not just on the hair replacement cost but also on the reputation of the surgeon. Always choose a surgeon who is known to produce consistent results no matter the cost they charge.
