Hair Replacement Cost


Generally, hair replacement costs can range anywhere from $4000 to $20,000. The hair replacement or transplant cost depends mostly on how many grafts you need. Also, each case is different, so be open minded about how many sessions you may need to complete for the best outcome. Remember, as is best practice before considering any operation or grafting procedures, always consult a professional first.

Non-Surgical Hair Replacement Cost:

  • Hairpiece Cost: Hair pieces are probably one of the oldest and most immediate solutions to dealing with hair loss. This particular hair replacement cost can range anywhere from $100 to $1,500. The costs obviously depend on the amount and quality of the hair being used. Although wigs, cap wigs, weaves, toupees and integration hairpieces can be quite effective in concealing bald spots or hair thinning, these hair replacement pieces can easily be pretty expensive. So be sure to do your research before purchasing this type of hair replacement.


  • Minoxidil Hair Replacement Cost: Products containing Minoxidil such as Rogaine and Propecia, have been known to work with 51% of men using products which contained 5% or more Minoxidil. It is FDA approved to help slow the process of hair loss or to help re-grow hair in areas of the scalp where there is hair loss. Most Minoxidil products are available over the counter and noticeable changes occur within months. Generic extra strength or 5% Minoxidil can range in cost depending on the amount purchased. Some of these hair replacement costs are as follows:
    3 months - $23.95 ($7.98/month)
    6 months - $45.95 ($7.65/month)
    9 months - $65.95 ($7.32/month)
    12 months - $83.95 ($6.99/month)


  • Drugs and Medications Hair Replacement Cost: Since hair loss drugs are usually a person’s initial line of defense upon first notice of hair loss, there are now thousands of over the counter and prescription medication drugs out there. Don’t be deceived! Only two hair replacement products are currently FDA approved - Rogaine and Propecia. These various medicated hair replacement products can range in cost anywhere from $11.99 to over $300.00! So, keep in mind that while certain drugs and medications might be a tempting “miracle cure”, be critical because they may not proved worthy of their price.

Surgical and Laser Hair Replacement Cost:

  • Laser Hair Replacement Cost: This non-surgical hair replacement therapy is claimed by some surgeons to be a breakthrough for hair regeneration. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more than 11,000 men had hair transplants in 2006. The laser hair treatment aims to stimulate the hair follicles of the scalp by increasing blood flow and nutrition in the baling areas, thereby helping to re-grow hair. Unfortunately, this hair replacement process has not yet been approved by the FDA. Furthermore, laser hair replacement costs start at an average of $3,000. For extensive hair transplant surgery, costs may reach a total closer to $12,000.


  • Hair Grafting/Transplant Cost: As hair transplants are becoming a more popular procedure in the US, the procedure has become less expensive. There are two main ways in which donor grafts are extracted today. These are the Strip Harvesting Technique and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Technique. Prices typically range from $3.00 to $7.00 per graft. Depending on the needs of the patient a typical surgical session can range from 1,500 to over 4,000 grafts, resulting in a total cost of approximately $6000 to $15,000.
