Blog, Hair Transplant

Hair transplants are becoming increasingly popular in the UK. Availability and awareness have both improved, and this procedure has also been given a veritable shot in the arm courtesy of countless celebs (actors, footballers, musicians) who have admitted to getting this treatment.

If you’re keen to follow in the footsteps of these celebs and book this treatment for yourself, you probably have a few questions, the most notable of which is, “How much is a hair transplant?”

In the following guide, we’ll address this key question, as well as the following:

  • How much do hair transplants cost in the UK?
  • What is the cost of an FUE hair transplant?
  • How long do hair transplants last?
  • Is a hair transplant worth it?

How Much Does a Hair Transplant Cost?

Regrettably, there is no straightforward response to this query, as is commonly the case with numerous cosmetic treatments, “how much is a hair transplant?”. It depends on various factors, the foremost of which is how much hair is being transplanted.

Needless to say, the more hair you need, the more complicated and time-consuming the procedure becomes, and so the price will reflect this.

Overall, the average cost of a hair transplant in the UK is £6,500, but you can expect to pay up to £20,000 for more complicated procedures.

Cost of FUE Hair Transplants

A follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant is accomplished by taking hair follicles from one area and implanting them in another. 

For instance, individual follicles can be removed from the back of the head and then planted into bald spots on the top or front of the head. 

FUE is often preferred to the “old-school” follicular unit transplantation (FUT) method, whereby entire pieces of the scalp are removed and transplanted.

At Pulse Light Clinic, we use a progressive FUE method that is guided by advanced robotic technology known as ARTAS. Our physicians use this technology to accurately locate and dissect thousands of grafts in a single treatment, allowing for a highly precise procedure that creates the full, thick, and natural results that clients seek.

The cost of these procedures varies from around £6,500 for minor treatments to £20,000 for more extensive procedures. FUE hair transplants take most of the day to complete, so if you’re booking an appointment, be sure to clear your schedule for that day. You do not need to stay overnight though and can return home to relax following the procedure.

How much is a hair transplant for men?

Studies suggest that 87% of hair transplant patients are men, so the average price typically relates to the average man. As noted above, this price is around £6,500 to £20,000.

How much is a hair transplant for women?

Although men are the main demographic for hair transplants, that’s not to say that women can’t or don’t have them, but this depends on several aspects that need to be checked before any decision is made. As far as cost goes, however, it depends on the size of the are and the amount of hair being transplanted.

How long do hair transplants last?

You will begin to see the results between 4 and 6 months after the procedure, with full growth visible after a year. The results can last a lifetime, as strong and healthy follicles are implanted in the balding areas and these can keep producing hair.

Is a hair transplant even worth it?

We can’t tell you whether a cosmetic procedure is worthwhile. We have experienced that many clients using Artas AI hair transplants experienced a significant improvement in their self-confidence after receiving this treatment.

It’s not just about looking good for your career, social life, or those all-important Instagram selfies. It’s about how much those changes impact your confidence and mental health, and that’s where the true value lies.

Is it painful to get a hair transplant?

The doctor will deliver a local anaesthetic before the procedure, so you shouldn’t feel any pain. However, you may feel some minor discomfort for a few days after the treatment. Over-the-counter pain medications (including ibuprofen) help to alleviate this discomfort, and your physician can provide more guidance if required.
