Hair transplant cost $1,000 to perform, new study finds
The cost of a hair transplant can be a $1.5 million-plus procedure, according to a new study that found the procedure was far more expensive in other parts of the world.
In a report published on Tuesday, the International Union of Dermatology (IUDS) published a study in which it examined the cost of various hair transplant procedures.
The cost of hair transplant surgery in the United States and the United Kingdom was about $4,500 for a bilateral procedure and about $2,000 for a partial scalp transplant.
The report said the costs in Europe and Asia were much higher, with costs in the region of $8,000 and $5,000.
The study said that costs varied considerably depending on the procedure.
In the United Arab Emirates, for example, the cost for a complete scalp transplant was $12,500, but the same procedure would cost $14,500 in the Netherlands, the report said.
In India, the procedure is about $3,500 and in the Philippines, the surgery cost $3.75, according the report.
The IUDS report did not break down the costs for the different procedures.
