Factors Affecting the Cost of Hair Transplant in Agra, India

The cost of hair transplant in India is influenced by multiple factors, as explained below.

  1. Charges Per Hair Graft

In a hair transplant procedure, hair grafts are removed from one part of the scalp and implanted in another part. Hence, when doing the basic price estimate, the hair transplant cost per graft in India certainly needs to be taken into account. The cost of each hair graft multiplied by the number of grafts required for the entire procedure decides the rate of a hair transplant. At Saraswat Hospital, we perform a computerised Trichoscopy Analysis for every patient to get an estimate on the number of grafts that would be required for the surgery, which helps us in calculating the final cost.

  1. Transplant Technique

While planning for a hair transplant surgery, it is important for the doctor to explain the whole process step-by-step to the patient to avoid any confusion afterwards. By doing so, the medical team gets a clear picture on what their roles and responsibilities are and the patient knows what to expect from the procedure. The hair transplant cost in India will go higher in special cases, such as a body hair transplant, repair hair transplant, combined FUE + FUT transplant, or a special area hair transplant.

  1. Credentials of the Surgeon

When choosing a hair transplant clinic, make sure you find a surgeon with the right credentials. They must have the required qualifications and years of credible experience. You shall choose a hair transplant surgeon who is a Diplomate of the prestigious American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS) like Dr. Satya Saraswat himself. He is also a full member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) and is updated with the latest technological advancements in the field. He has the expertise to perform all kinds of hair transplant surgery and is worth every penny of his fees.

  1. Credibility of the Doctor

During your consult with a hair transplant doctor, it is the doctor’s responsibility to explain to you everything about the procedure, the transplant technique, the recovery timeline, and expectations from the result. A credible doctor will take the time out to have this discussion and answer any doubts the patient may have. At Saraswat Hospital, our ABHRS-certified experts give their patients all the emotional support possible.

  1. The Medical Team

A successful hair transplant surgery needs organised teamwork. In addition to the transplant surgeon, there is also the rest of the team that works in sync at different steps of the procedure. A hair transplant has three major steps: recipient site creation, graft harvesting, and graft insertion. At Saraswat hospital, we do not allow any sort of manhandling of grafts. Hence, only capable and efficient doctors are chosen to assist the lead surgeon during the graft insertion process. A medical team that comprises of only qualified, trained, and experienced staff also means a higher cost for the procedure.

  1. The Surgical Instrument

A reputed hair transplant clinic must only use standardised, specialised, and best-quality surgical equipment. At Saraswat Hospital, we never use recycled punches. All our patients are provided with new punches. We always use high-quality and latest equipment to perform our procedures and deliver results without any side effects. The quality of the FUE machine also matters. Only low-torque, low-RPM machines can be used for the surgery. One shall never compromise on the cost of the hair transplant in India by using sub-standard equipment.

  1. Sterilised OT Environment

The OT facility in a hair transplant clinic must be properly cleaned, sanitised, and fumigated with a sterilisation and disinfection done for all surfaces. The doctor and the full medical team shall be wearing auto-cleared OT gowns and PPE kits. All other forms of facilities, such as multipara monitors, defibrillator, or central supply of oxygen, shall be used as per the international OT norms. All staff members must wear loupe optivisors to handle the grafts delicately.

  1. Receipt With Tax

When you pay the bill for your hair transplant, make sure you ask for a proper receipt. This will ensure that the clinic pays the mandatory 18% GST to the authorities. There might be some cheaper clinics that offer a reduced hair transplant cost in India if you accept payment without a receipt. But in such cases, you will no longer have any document that shows you paid for a hair transplant surgery at the clinic. Hence, you might not be able to hold them accountable if any problems arise in future.

  1. Hidden Cost

Every hair transplant clinic follows the principle of hair transplant cost per graft in India. So, when you receive a hair transplant quote from a clinic, make sure the cost estimate is based on the number of hair grafts. A graft may be made of 1-4 hair follicles; with each follicle referred to as a follicular unit. Save yourself from any hidden charges by double checking if the quote is based on per follicle or per follicular unit. You must also verify if the cost package is inclusive of any pre-operative investigations, medications, and other factors.

What is FUE?

FUE is Graft harvesting by Follicular Unit Excision (previously called Extraction).

Harvesting of the grafts from safe donor area of scalp is done by low torque low rpm machine with a counter at Saraswat Hospital so the there is no injury to the grafts and you can see how many grafts have been harvested in your hair transplant surgery.

Benefits of FUE-

  1. Best grafts can be chosen for harvesting.
  2. Done under direct magnified vision (best quality Carl Zeiss loupes are used in Saraswat Hospital Agra by all doctors and staff)
  3. No stitches required
  4. Healing is very fast

Disadvantages of FUE-

  1. Safe donor area is limited and in cases of higher grades of baldness there is very high probability of graft harvesting from unsafe donor area. Such grafts may shed soon.
  2. Over harvesting in many patients causes scalp visibility in donor area later.
  3. A good Trichoscopic assessment (computerized assessment of scalp and hairs at donor and recipient site) is always required for best results which we always do at Saraswat Hospital.

Cost of a Hair transplant in India, USA, Canada, Europe, Turkey, Australia  and other select countries  (Source : statista)

In 2020 and 2021, the total cost of a hair transplant in Canada amounted to approximately 17,500 U.S. dollars, compared to around 2,675 U.S. dollars in Turkey. This statistic depicts the total cost of a hair transplant in select countries worldwide in 2020 and 2021

Why is the cost of hair transplant less in India: 

  1. Currency exchange rate – The US Dollar’s value is higher than Indian Rupee.
  2. Highly skilled, qualifies and experienced Doctors and Technicians charge less in India than in many other countries; one reason for this being the cost of living is lower in India than many other countries.

What is FUT?

Now called LSE- Linear Strip Excision, FUT stands for Follicular Unit Transplantation. It’s the strip method of graft harvesting.

How is it done?

A strip of grafts containing scalp tissue is taken from the safe donor area. Hair follicles are then separated from the strip under high quality Carl Zeiss operating microscope in Saraswat Hospital.

Benefits of FUT:

  1. No thinning of Hairs in donor area- Density of grafts in donor area is not reduced at all!
  2. Very useful in loose scalp.
  3. Can be done multiple times
  4. We at Saraswat Hospital do Tricophytic closure which minimizes the scar to an extent that hairs grow through the scar!

Disadvantages of FUT:

  1. Wide strip may leave unsightly scar which may prohibit you from keeping your hairs short .
  2. Tight scalp may pose problem in surgery; also multiple FUTs may not be possible
  3. Longer healing time

Cost of African Hair Transplant

Please be aware about the special considerations for African Hairs

  • African hairs are Highly Textured hairs (HTH)
  • Hair Transplant gives better coverage but follicular units are difficult to harvest.
  • There is higher transection rates
  • Curve/curl of follicular units (hairs) can be continuous from top to bottom
  • Splay (divergence of hairs inside the skin) can be additional issue found more frequently
  • There is less contrast between hair and skin colour – increased illusion (low density transplant can produce good coverage), but there is decreased visibility of slits
  • Donor density is generally lower in African hairs (60-70 FU/cm2 v/s 80-100 FU/cm2 in Caucasians)
  • Lower caliber of hairs is present (60-65 µg as compared to 70-75 µg in Caucasians)
  • Assessment for Keloidal tendency, post traumatic hypo or hyperpigmentation needs to be done in consultation.

There are special Considerations for FUE in black Ethnicity

  • Black males prefer short haircut
  • FUT may leave a visible linear scar
  • First FUE is attempted over FUT to limit FUT scar visibility
  • Slow harvesting is done keeping a check on transection rates (around 500-600 grafts per hour)
  • Punch type matters – Sharp/Hybrid punch gives better results
  • Tumescence & counter-traction to make grafts vertical
  • Routine transection rates are checked after extracting every 40-50 grafts
