Today, we are very fortunate that modern medical science gives the people in the United Kingdom the option to correct many of the physical faults that can be caused by accidents, disease, hormonal imbalance or simply genetic predisposition. This is also true in the case of alopecia, known in simpler terms as hair loss or balding. Despite the great opportunity provided by the considerable advancement of the medical field, the patient must be very careful when selecting a certain type of hair loss treatment and the clinic he/she wishes to attend. A balance between the cost of hair transplant and the end result is often difficult to find.
Surgical hair transplant is a procedure that involves the harvesting of follicular units from the donor area, either individually or by using the strip-harvesting technique, and transplanting them to the recipient area, or the area of the skin that is presenting noticeable hair loss. Due to the fact that the follicular units, which are naturally occurring groups of 1-4 strands of hair, are extracted from a donor area that is genetically resistant to alopecia, once placed on the recipient area, they will no longer be prone to falling off permanently. There are two main types of hair transplant procedures which involve different surgical processes, different risks and different costs: follicular unit transplantation surgery, or FUT surgery, and follicular unit extraction surgery, or simply FUE surgery. Follicular unit transplantation surgery generally tends to be less costly than FUE surgery because the process is faster and it requires less time and effort on the part of the surgeon. Follicular unit extraction, on the other hand, takes more time and requires a greater effort and more experience for the end result to be successful. There are other factors that can determine the price of hair transplant in the UK, including the provider of the service, the location of the clinic, the reputation and experience of the surgeon, the cost per follicular unit transfer, the type of technology used and so on. The price also depends on the severity of the hair loss or hair thinning presented by the patient.
