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. The cost of hair transplant varies widely all across India. The optimum cost of hair transplant can be estimated after taking into consideration the variation of cost, which occurs due to many factors.
The first factor and the most important one is the one who is going to do your hair transplant.
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 basically the infrastructure that the clinic boasts of.
The Operation Theatre should be well equipped for all types of emergency. Considering, that a hair transplant is a day-time 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.
What is the best clinic to opt for your hair transplant?
The third factor is the quality of instruments & instruments that are being used.
Consider a small example of the Operation Theatre light, where 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 one or two 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. I always advise my patients, that in order to get your hair transplant done once, you need to do it right!
