What is the cheapest cost of a hair transplant in India?
Dr.Sachin Pawar, a hair transplant surgeon at HairMD Pune puts down his experience and his research about the cost of hair transplant in India in a nutshell.
According to him, the cost of hair transplant varies widely all across India. From the cheapest to the highest, the cost of hair transplant in India varies from Rs. 15 to 120 per graft ! Also, some of the clinics offer packages that range from 30,000/- to higher, depending on the level of customization.
These are some factors that will determine the cost of your Hair Transplant:
Degree of baldness
- Grafts requirement that depends on the Grade of baldness & Affected Scalp region.
- The Availability of Donor area which decides that whether BHT or regular FUE is to be used.
- The technique of Hair transplant i.e. FUE or FUT. FUE will be bit expensive than FUT as it required expertise and time.
- Technology and equipment used for Hair Transplant.
- The Skilled Manpower.
- The Surgeon- The utmost important parameter for your Hair Transplant. Sometimes, the cost is majorly decided on the basis of experience and practice of surgeon.
- The location of Hair Transplant Centre. As the city will be a major deciding factor for the operational cost of the centre.
- The time required for Hair Transplant i.e. session required as per your grafts requirement.
- Is hair transplant repetitive or first time? The repeat hair transplant will always cost you pay more.
So, the optimum cost of hair transplant can be estimated after taking into consideration the variation of cost, which occurs due to many factors.
However, one must not fall for lowest or highest per graft cost or packages. The cost is determined by various factors & you will learn the 3 most important factor as you go through it.
The first factor and the most important one is your Doctor!
It depends on his experience and expertise. There are many clinics mushrooming in most cities in India, where hair transplant is undertaken by technicians. An experienced surgeon cannot be compared to a technician based setup.

The second factor is the infrastructure.
The Operation Theatre should be well equipped for all types of emergency. Considering, that a hair transplant is a daytime procedure, people tend to take it very lightly and a lot of mishaps can happen and the Operation Theatre or the infrastructure should be well equipped to cope up with these kinds of emergency.
Here are the glimpses of HairMD's world class infrastructure

What is the best clinic to opt for your hair transplant?
The third factor is the quality of instruments & instruments.
Consider a small example of the Operation Theatre light.
The hair follicles located outside the body are very heat sensitive. Cold light and LED light cause minimal heat damage to the grafts as compared to the ordinary OT lights. These lights are very expensive and a hair transplant cannot be done with naked eyes.
It requires a very good magnification with precise extraction and plantation of the grafts than only punches have a direct effect on the follicular grafts and an after effect on the donor area. Punch prices vary from 1200 rupees to eight thousand rupees. In your hair transplant, where body hair is basically extracted from beard without leaving visible scars on the face and it requires great expertise.
You have a very limited number of donor's hair. If a hair transplant is not done properly, then you are at loss on two counts. You don't get the desired result and also your donor's hair is depleted, so if future correction is required, then it becomes very difficult.
To find an approximate cost, or to understand whether it is justified or not, you can simply meet past patients of the clinic. You can talk with them and ask about the experience of that clinic. You can also understand in detail, the clinics result considering you're paying for your personality, your future look and more than that if anything goes wrong, your life is at stake.
We, at HairMD, always advise our patients, that cost is not the only factor which should be considered in hair transplant. It depends on multiple factors as you know now. In our experience of 12+ years, we have seen many regretting patients who have gone for cheap options.
