What’s the cost of a FUE hair transplant?

POSTED: 19 January 2018

One of the main concerns for those considering a hair transplant is the cost of the procedure. There are a number of factors that can influence this, including:

  • The type of hair transplant (FUE hair transplant vs FUT hair transplant)
  • The extent of your hair loss
  • The quality of your hair loss clinic

A typical hair transplant in the UK can cost anywhere from £4000 to £15,000, so in order to extract the maximum value from your investment, you should carefully consider the costs and opt for the highest quality clinic to ensure you get the best results.

In this article, we’ll go over the average FUE hair transplant costs in the UK compared to other hair loss treatments; and show how you could benefit from a Crown Clinic hair transplant.



How much does a hair transplant cost in the UK?

As mentioned above, UK hair transplant costs start from £4000 and can reach up to £15,000, however, this largely depends on the procedure.

FUE hair transplants are more complicated and very labour intensive, therefore they are typically more expensive than the traditional FUT hair transplant. The procedure involves individual grafts being removed from the donor area and moved to the areas of the scalp which are balding or thinning.

To compare, we’ve looked at FUE hair transplant costs in the UK in contrast to FUT hair transplant costs:


FUE hair transplant

From £6000


FUT hair transplant costs

From £4400


The figures above are the average starting prices for FUT and FUE hair transplants in the UK. As a general rule of thumb, the larger the area being extracted, the more expensive the procedure will be, therefore the costs can vary significantly.


The dangers of cheap hair transplants

As the old saying goes, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is, and the same is true of hair transplant procedures. Many are opting to travel overseas in search of cheap hair transplants, however, there are several risks associated with this.

Firstly, many treatments are done by under-qualified or inexperienced surgeons or technicians, hence the lower price. Therefore you may not get the results you intended and you may have to pay even more to have the results corrected. Or worse yet, you could suffer long-term damage that cannot be rectified a result of the sub-par procedure.

With any procedure, it’s important to conduct proper research and look at reviews and testimonials before deciding on the right clinic. This can help to improve your chances of getting better results and give you the best value for money.
