The techniques used affect cost
FUE is a more popular choice for many hair transplant patients today. It utilizes robotic or digitally assisted systems to improve the efficiency and capabilities of the procedure. It’s also more labour intensive than FUT, so the cost per graft tends to be approximately 40% – 50% higher for FUE hair transplants in Toronto.
Benefits which most patients consider worth the investment include rapid recovery and minimal scarring. FUE utilizes a precision punch tool that extracts tiny, individual hair grafts from the donor zone. Once healed, these small incision sites leave a little white dot, instead of extensive scar lines associated with FUT.
If you wear your hair long, avoiding the linear strip method scar may be less relevant to you. Keep in mind that healing from a more significant incision also takes longer, so FUT patients tend to schedule two weeks or more off work.
How many grafts do you need?
You’ll need to be seen by a specialist in person before you can determine the number of grafts you need. Understandably, this factor will have a critical influence on your price. For instance, you may choose to transfer anywhere from 500 to 2500 units to fill in, thicken or rebuild hair growth areas. If you need just a little restoration of a hairline, or if you want significant, transformative results, your graft number will change.
Additionally, you may undergo one restoration session or more than one to slowly build up the result you’re seeking. Each session carries its own costs related to medication, surgeon’s fees and staffing.
