The price of a hair transplant intervention will depend mainly on the number of grafts you need, varying from one patient to another. Depending on the degree of baldness, the doctor will assess the follicular units that you will need to transplant for an aesthetic, natural and satisfactory result.
In hair restoration surgery, to estimate how much your procedure can cost, it is important to know:
Some factors which vary from person to person may determine the cost of the session.
The cost of your hair transplant will depend mainly on the amount of grafts you need.
The costs of hair transplantation will also be reduced as the surgical sessions increase.
Those patients who choose to have more than one operation made to achieve their personal goals will benefit from a lower cost in subsequent surgeries at De Freitas Clinic.

To know the approximate number of follicles you may need, simply add up the areas.
Examples (* the amount of follicles may vary depending on the degree of baldness, if you still have some hair on the area or not).
Area 1 = 1 day of intervention (from 1100 follicles to 1600 follicular units can be implanted).
Area 1 + Area 2 = 2 days of intervention (from 2100 to 2500 follicles can be implanted).
Area 1 + Area 2 + Area 3 = 2 days of intervention (from 2600 to 3200 follicles can be implanted).
Area 4 = 2 days of intervention (from 2000 to 3200 follicles can be implanted).
Area 1 + Area 2 + Area 3 + Area 4 (in this case you may need more sessions for achieve the desired aesthetic results).
Degree of Baldness
|Transplant of Follicular Units on the Head|
|No. of follicles||Recommended areas|
|Up to 600 Follicles
Approx. 1200-1380 hairs
|Eyebrows and Scar|
Approx. 2200-3200 hairs
|Area 1 in Men
Light and Moderate in Women
Approx. 4000-5000 hairs
|Areas 1 and 2 in Men|
Approx. 5200-6400 hairs
|Areas 1, 2 and 3 in Men|
Approx. 4000-6400 hairs
The price, degree of baldness, number of follicles and hairs can vary from one person to another due to several factors such as: density of the donor area of each patient, number of follicles to be transplanted, size of donor and receiving areas.
That is why it is important to have a medical appointment to assess individually the degree of baldness you have to date and to stablish the areas to be implanted.
1-day procedures: Up to 1600 Follicles
2-day procedures: 2100 - 3200 Follicles
The procedure includes:
Hair transplants can be the best option when talking about hair restoration, especially when considering the permanence of transplanted hair. Hair transplantation is the only permanent solution to hair loss.
The extraction by the FUSS or FUT method is based on the removal of a strip 20cm long and 1cm wide. If we take into account that the average density ranges from 55 to 60 follicular units per cm2, around 1000-1200 follicular units will be extracted. That is to say, in the case of a patient with low follicular density no more follicles could be removed with the aforementioned cutting measures, so that it would be necessary to extend the area, thus producing a greater, unsightly scar.
Therefore, in many cases this method is as expensive as the FUE Technique. You will be paying an excessive price and going through the procedure more than once, with more cuts and with potential widening of the scar. This sum of incisions will produce worse healing due to having less and less elasticity in the area and, as a consequence, will have more negative after-effects.
The FDA has only approved three treatments so far to re-grow hair, and all require a lifetime commitment (Finasteride, Minoxidil and Hair Transplants).
