Here’s What You Really Get for the Cost of a Hair Transplant

Cost of a Hair Transplant

Dr. Cory Torgerson

Planning a cosmetic procedure can be pricey. When it comes to hair transplant costs, understanding what’s involved and, more importantly, what you get for your investment is critical. We’re going to help break it down for you: what does a hair transplant cost in Canada, what does the procedure involve, and what is the ideal outcome you can expect when you take the bold step of restoring your hair? The answers are coming up.

Since the results of a hair transplant are (thankfully) permanent, getting it done right is just as important as the cost. Of course, as with any procedure, the quality and longevity of the work are affected by the practitioner you choose. Considering that it costs over $10,000 in most cases for a full, extensive procedure, you’ll want to ensure that you’ve selected a top-notch hair surgeon and that you’re paying for complete service that you’ll be pleased with.

Dr. Cory Torgerson is a facial plastic surgeon specializing in the head and neck, with extensive experience in restorative hair surgery. Dr. Cory Torgerson is fully accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and he is renowned among colleagues and clients for his expertise and medical training.

In Toronto, no matter the cost, hair transplant is one of the most rewarding services we provide for men and women. Unlike some surgeries such as a facial implant or lift, the hair restoration process requires an investment of finances and time. The whole cycle of a hair’s growth, from the initial signs of success to full thickness, will take from 3 to 12 months.

In addition, some people plan more than one procedure in combination or subsequently to achieve the complete, dramatic transformation they want. This is one of many good reasons to select a highly experienced surgeon that you know you can trust and build a long-term relationship with. Your pre-operative assessment and planning, the procedure itself, then multiple visits to keep track of progress all combine to create a satisfying and successful hair restoration.

What will your surgical quote contain?

We invite clients to book no-obligation consultations with us. During the appointment, you’ll be examined, and your personal situation will be discussed. Your type and rate of hair loss will determine the procedure methods recommended for you. The follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant technique is most commonly requested by patients at our clinic. One of the major benefits of the FUE method is that it leaves no linear scars. For many years, the strip method, which excises a long piece of the scalp to be dissected, was the only tried and true option. While it could yield high graft numbers, today’s patients steer clear of the unavoidable scarring as much as possible. Comparatively, FUE allows the surgeon to remove tiny grafts one by one, leaving barely visible scars that don’t give away your procedure.

You’ll receive a personalized quotation after you’ve discussed your treatment plan with Dr. Torgerson. We’ll also provide you with a cost estimate that shows you the price for all surgical fees, staff, procedure, anaesthetic, and post-operative care appointments in one inclusive price. If you want to accelerate healing or boost your hair growth, for an additional fee we offer specialized treatments like platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP).

How many hair grafts are typical?

Hair transplants will usually transfer between 500 and 2,500 grafts in a single session. If you desire or require a higher number to complete your look, additional, separate procedures may be necessary. A single graft holds between 1 and 4 hairs and costs $5 to $6 per graft. (Note that these prices are subject to change over time.) FUE is a meticulous, labour-intensive procedure. It does generally carry a slightly higher cost than the older, traditional methods, yet the natural-looking, long-lasting results are considered well worth it.

The value of hair transplant before and after

For people who’ve lucked out and are not personally familiar with the devastation of losing hair, it may seem frivolous or difficult to comprehend investing a large sum of money in restoration. However, just like a facial or body issue that makes someone self-conscious, losing your hair — especially at a young age — can cause your confidence to take a hit. Undergoing hair transplantation can have immeasurable benefits for your outlook, whether in your career or personal life.

When someone feels badly about how they look, they may avoid social situations, photos, or pursuing advancement at work. Many men and women are re-entering the dating community again in mid-life and are worried about their thinning or balding making them appear older than they are. From start to finish, hair restoration will require money and time, but within one year you could have your old hairline back and feel like your stylish self again. You’ll notice that the cost of hair transplant pays off within the first year.

At the THTC, we offer medical financing options with reputable companies who help offset the one-time cost of a hair transplant and make the procedure more accessible for regular people who don’t necessarily have the complete payment on hand. We don’t want to see anyone miss out on feeling youthful, attractive, and great about how they look because of finances.

What does your current approach cost?

When you calculate the potential cost of ongoing medication treatment, hair-growth supplements, specialized hair products, or hair pieces, the comparative one-time fee for permanent transplant will not continue to drain your bank account over time. Using expensive “treatment” products that fail to deliver measurable hair restoration will cost you plenty over the years, however.

Many people are surprised to learn how much high-end hair systems cost today. These realistic-looking toupees require expensive and meticulous maintenance. They aren’t cheap, but unfortunately, they aren’t your real hair either. Nothing beats the peace of mind you can have when you’re able to wash, cut, style, and live with your actual growing hair again.

Your consultation is pressure-free, so we invite you to come in and learn more about the possibilities. We’ll create a customized plan just for you and help you get on your way to restoration. We look forward to hearing from you!
