It’s a fact that hair transplant cost is a major factor in deciding whether to undergo a hair transplant or not. People may evaluate the cost of different hair transplant experts for cost. You will also find the cost difference in hair transplant surgery across different clinics, locations, and cities. This is because there are a number of factors affecting the hair transplant cost.
Here, we will explain the top 5 factors affecting the hair transplant cost in Pune.
1. Your Baldness Level
Level or grade of baldness refers to your hair loss situation. Depending upon the baldness, your case is categorized into different baldness level buckets. The grade of baldness is the topmost factor that influences the hair transplant cost.
2. Number of Grafts You Require
Depending upon the level of baldness, the number of grafts required is calculated. A high level of baldness will require more grafts to match the expected hair density. The number of grafts also depends on the availability and characteristics of donor hair resulting in an increase in the price of overall hair transplant. Cost per follicle often ranges between Rs.20-40. However, at Sai Cosmetics, the cost per follicle starts from Rs.15.
3.Hair Transplant Technique
There are two hair transplant techniques – (Follicular unit extraction) FUE and Follicular Unit Hair Transplant (FUHT). The FUE technique is an advanced technique that applies the use of modern technology for the individual graft extraction. Whereas, the FUHT is a conventional technique that involves taking out of a strip from the posterior scalp.

A number of sessions depend on the efforts needed for hair transplant and the current situation of the patients. Most of the hair transplant surgeries are performed in a single session of 5-8 hours. However, there are some cases where you might need more session depending on the number of grafts required. In a single session, around 3000-4000 grafts can be implanted.
5. The Expertise/Experience of the Surgeon
When it comes to the healthcare industry or medical industry, experience and expertise come at a cost.
