I live outside of California and am interested in seeing you for my hair restoration. I have attached my photos to this email along with a few quick questions that I have regarding hair transplantation. Could you please check them out when you have a chance and let me know what your personal recommendations are?
- What is the approximate number of grafts required to achieve sufficient density (if not a lot) and the approximate cost of the whole process?
- How long will it take me to get back to my work and how soon I will see the results?
- Lastly, please do let me know any other important information that is relevant to the his whole procedure.
Thanks for your help!
Thank you for your interest in our hair restoration services. I forwarded your information and pictures to be included in our patient system, but I also wanted to take a quick moment to review your photos and answer your questions personally. Here are the answers to your questions in the orders they are received:
Number of hair transplant grafts recommended
You are a class VI of hair loss and would require the maximum number of grafts we can get in one session to achieve the density you are striving for. The number is generally above 2500 grafts for people who have never had a surgery, but may fluctuate in the range of 2500 to 4000 grafts based on your own scalp laxity and density of hair (to be determined when you are here in our office).
What is the average hair transplant cost
The cost for hair transplants at US Hair Restoration are based on the number of grafts needed and the standard charges are as follows for Follicular Unit Transplants: $4 per graft for the first 2500 grafts and any additional grafts are charged at half price ($2 per graft).
Your travel expenses will be reimbursed towards 10% of the cost of surgery (up to $500).
In addition to reimbursement on travel, we will book a hotel near our office for you for 2 nights with free transportation between the hotel and our office for your visits.
We also have a standby program available for people who can be flexible and go on our waiting list to await the next available surgery date (visit us at www.ushairrestoration.com for more information on that offer).
How soon will I see results after a hair transplant
The procedure for a strip hair transplant takes one whole day (from 7am to 5pm) and you are required to return the day after for your procedure for a hair wash. With these basic requirements, you can fly back home as early as the first day after your surgery. You will be fully functional the first day after surgery, but you may have some swelling for 3-4 days following.
Visible results of your hair transplantation will be seen approximately 6-10 months following the procedure itself.
