Las Vegas FUE Hair Transplant

The American Hair Loss Association states that more than two-thirds of men will experience some degree of hair loss by age 35. Depending on the amount of lost hair, it can cause emotional issues and low self esteem for many men.

Men are not the only ones suffering from thinning hair. There are approximately 30 million women experiencing this crippling disease. Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon offers the minimally invasive FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) procedure that looks totally natural. The technology used for this Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method is a state-of-the-art S.A.F.E. Scribe Automated Hair Transplant System.

SURGICAL TECHNIQUE
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) using the S.A.F.E. Scribe technology, is a less invasive approach if you are looking for a Las Vegas hair transplant with no linear scar.  The FUE method removes individual hair follicles from the scalp with the S.A.F.E. Scribe machine operated punch. This mechanical unit used in conjunction with our experience technicians can remove up to twenty five hundred grafts (follicular units) in a one day Las Vegas hair transplant procedure.

The S.A.F.E. Scribe removes groupings of 1-4 hairs which are strategically and artistically transplanted in areas of the scalp where thinning or balding has occurred. The benefit of a Las Vegas FUE hair transplant is that a patient does not have to worry about a linear scar (line) across the  back of the head. This procedure is often chosen by men who wear their hair very tight or short in the back of their head.  It is a favorite among military personnel and the younger generation who prefer a shaved head or fade style haircut.

BEST CANDIDATES

Las Vegas FUE hair transplant patients are those who prefer a less invasive surgical approach. FUE is suitable for both men and women. Men who want hair short and enjoy an active lifestyle would benefit from this approach. FUE is used to restore hair in old linear scars, and is popular for small procedures like eyebrow restoration.

DURING/AFTER SURGERY
FUE is an out patient procedure performed under local anesthesia. The S.A.F.E. Scribe punches out small 1,2,3 and 4 hair grafts. (No scalpel, sutures or staples are used). Dr. Khorsandi artistically creates the recipient sites for a Las Vegas FUE hair transplant masterpiece. His surgical team then implants the individual hairs. Depending on the amount of hair being transplanted, the procedure can take as long as 3-10 hours.

Most patients return to work in 5-7 days. Strenuous activity and exercise including weightlifting, CrossFit, running, should be avoided for about 1-2 weeks to insure the area of implantation is safely healed. Results vary by patient, but most patients will see new hair growth starting at 3-4 months post-op and the new hair will continue filling in the balding area up to a year before the process is complete.

EXPECTED COST
The cost of a Las Vegas FUE hair transplant is based on the amount of grafts needed to restore the thinning or bald areas. The cost can range in price from $3000-$15,000.

FUE OR FUT (STRIP)?
The primary difference between FUE and FUT is the technique used for extracting the grafts. One method is with a punch and the other is with a scalpel to remove the strip. Both methods will give patients more hair in thinning areas.

What does a hair transplant cost?

If you are considering a hair transplant to cover your thinning or balding scalp, you’re probably wondering what it will cost. Cost is typically an important part of your decision making process, however it should not totally govern your final decision.

The old adage, ‘you get what you pay for’ is something to consider with hair transplant surgery. If you’re going bald, and you can’t imagine yourself with a shaved head, the cost for a hair transplant may be well worth the money you invest.

This being said, you want the most bang for your buck.  And, the bang for your buck in this scenario is about getting as much density as possible for the money you spend on a hair transplant.

At Advanced Hair Transplants, we offer patients all proven solutions to fix hair loss including FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant), FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and our trademarked MAX DENSITY® hair restoration procedure.  Hair transplant cost is based on the amount of hair that must be moved, and the procedure chosen (FUT, FUE or MAX DENSITY®) for your individual need.

Our Board Certified Hair Restoration surgeons will give you a recommendation with regard to which procedure is best for you. If your hair is short, the FUE procedure may be your best bet, and if it’s longer, you might choose MAX DENSITY®.

The cost of your hair transplant procedure will depend on the type of procedure you choose: FUT, FUE, MAX DENSITY, FACIAL HAIR RESTORATION (Beards, goatees, eyebrows, sideburns, mustaches, etc). Each procedure is unique and has a different price based on factors including the size of the session, number of grafts, time involved, and number of technicians assisting the doctor.

Advanced Hair Transplants offers Complimentary ‘In Person’ Consultations, or you can submit photos for an ‘Online Review’ by one of our Board Certified Hair Restoration Surgeons.  To find out your hair transplant cost, please call Lee at (888) 923-7497 or send an email to lee@advancedhairtransplants.com. You can also reach out to Gene at (925) 918-7360 or email him at gene@advancedhairtransplants.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

Hair Transplant Cost

How much does a hair transplant cost?

GRAFTS - 1,2,3,4

Most doctors will charge you by the graft.  Charging by the graft has been the ‘Gold Standard’ for hair restoration surgery. The problem with charging by the graft is that it can be deceptive because most people don’t know how many hairs are in a graft.  If a doctor says he will transplant 1000 grafts, what does that mean?  Are you getting a thousand 1 hair grafts, a thousand 2 hair grafts or a thousand 3 hair grafts or a thousand multi-follicular unit grafts that will have 6-8 hairs per graft?

If a doctor is honest and ‘doing the right thing’ for the patient, he will transplant the grafts as they grow in their natural state.  In other words, if a graft is 3 hairs, that graft is not cut into three 1 hair grafts and you are not charged three times the amount. If the hair transplant cost is $5 per graft, then a 1 hair graft, 2 hair graft, or 3 hair graft is $5.  Make sense?

At Advanced Hair Transplants, our surgeons give you the maximum amount of hair in one procedure based on your donor density and scalp flexibility. We do not dissect larger grafts into smaller ones and charge you more money like some of the unscrupulous doctors on our industry. Our hair transplant cost is the same as our competitors, however, we give you more hair in one procedure!

AHT2-5

We offer the trademarked MAX DENSITY® procedure which gives you more density in one surgery when compared to the typical pay-by-the graft procedure. Our surgeon meticulously measures the donor hair that will be removed. Based on average hair density, a person will have 200 hairs per 1 sq. cm. of hair.  If the doctor removes 30 sq. cm. of hair, it will yield approximately 6000 hairs.  With this procedure, the hair transplant cost is based on the amount of hair moved. A MAX DENSITY® procedure gives you a fair hair transplant cost and a better final result!

MAX DENSITY Platinum
