Hundreds of hair restoration surgery procedures are performed every day, thanks to the highly qualified doctors and modern equipment used in top class clinics. People often find it surprising how low the cost of procedure is in Pakistan keeping in view the availability of top-notch technology and experienced doctors. While planning about having the procedure done in order to restore the hair, the first question that comes to mind is the price in Pakistan. Male and female procedure cost is same due to disposable instruments, staff charges and medicine.
In order to get an estimate of hair transplant price in Pakistan, the patient must visit a doctor for consultation. Also, it is best to consult multiple doctors as it will not only give a better estimate of cost to the patient but also help him find the best hair transplant clinic for himself. During consultation, the doctor will identify the level of hair loss; the density of donor area, no of grafts required to restore a natural looking hair line and will suggest the best procedure to the patient. The doctor will give only an estimate because the final price of the treatment can only be identified after the procedure is done because post-op care could be different among patients. Hair transplant price in Pakistan can be affected by numerous factors.
Among the factors that influence the final price of hair transplant procedure in Pakistan, the severity of the condition or the level of baldness comes first. The higher level of hair loss the more the cost is going to be as it will require more hair grafts to be transplanted. The cost of the procedure will also be affected by the type of procedure performed. There are two types of techniques that are used in Pakistan: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). In FUE, hair follicles are extracted individually from donor site and are then relocated to the recipient region. And in FUT a strip of skin tissue is removed from the donor area and the individual grafts are prepared from strip then transplanted in the recipient region. The cost of FUE is slightly higher than FUT as it is a more skilled and labour intensive procedure. The duration of the procedure will also have a direct impact on the price of the treatment. In FUT the doctor takes less time operating on the patient than in FUE.
However, in case of FUT the patient takes about 2-3 weeks to heal and has a permanent post-op scar while in FUE the healing time is about 7 days. Therefore, it is necessary to keep in mind that the healing time will also affect the cost of the treatment. The patient will need medication and also have to get his stitches removed in case of FUT. Among the post-op expenses, the medication is essential which will aid in healing. The doctor will suggest patient-specific ointments for the recipient area and will also recommend antibiotics to prevent any infections. Sometimes patients also prescribed analgesics to reduce discomfort in the treated area.
Hair transplant price in Pakistan is charged according to the number of grafts that are needed to be completely treating bald area. The best clinics in Pakistan offer hair loss treatment by using FUE technique at the cost of 1$/graft. Baldness treatment through FUT is charged 0.50$ per graft. But no matter which technique is used, the result of both FUE and FUT is the same i.e. a natural looking hair line.
