What are the main factors that affect hair transplant cost in India?

The density needed for transplant:

Most hair plant procedures will provide 35-40 grafts per cms. The number of grafts provided will depend on the baldness severity, before the surgery.

Total grafts required:

The cost will depend on the size and side of the area that requires grafts. Sometimes it will be charged on a “per graft” basis.


Many different techniques are used to insert hair follicles. Doctors may use one or two methods for the surgery. The traditional method of hair transplant is known as FUT, which will cost 15-120 INR per hair graft. The advanced stitch, which is FUE, will cost 30-80 INR per graft. The FUE hair transplant cost in India is still affordable as compared to other countries and has made India a medical tourism destination for such procedures. FUE hair transplant is much faster and has less recovery time, and it provides a more natural look. Of course, the rates listed are estimates; you will have to consult with your doctor to know the exact cost.

Physician qualifications:

The doctor performing the hair transplant should be a board certified surgeon, with many years of experience in the hair transplant industry. If a doctor is highly recommended and in demand, they will charge higher prices. However, you must do your research and ensure that the quality of their results is worth the price you pay.

What is the overall hair transplant price in India?

Once again it depends on the city and doctor you choose for the best hair transplant in India. For instance, if you choose to come to Pune, Kolkata, or Chennai for a hair consultation, it can be cheaper when compared to cities like Bangalore and Mumbai as the costs to maintain a larger clinic also differs in these cities. The average cost of a Hair transplant starts at 60,000 INR. This is why India has seen a surge in Medical tourists, where people from all over the world come to India for advanced hair transplant treatments because of the affordable prices.

Best hair transplant clinic in India follows these parameters:

1.  The first and most important parameter is who is your surgeon? The doctor’s experience and his expertise is also a very important factor for getting a successful hair transplant. You also can be shocked to know that in a few clinics the technicians perform the hair transplant surgery. You can’t compare them with an experienced doctor.

3. The third parameter is how is the quality of the instruments in the operation theatre: You can consider a very small example like the Operation Theatre light. These lights are very expensive and a hair transplant cannot be done with naked eyes. Thus, it requires a very good magnification with precise extraction and plantation of the grafts. Do you know that punches have a direct effect on the follicular grafts and an after effect on the donor area also? So you need to know the punch prices also vary from 1200 rupees to 8000 rupees. If you have a very limited number of donor’s hair and your hair transplant is not done properly, then you are at loss.

4.  The No of grafts used for your hair transplantThis factor also takes into account the severity of your baldness; once this is gauged the surgeon will decide on the number of grafts to be used. If more grafts are used then the cost will also increase.
