hi Dr. Rassman,
i just had a quick question for you and i would really appreciated if you could answer it. well dr. rassman i just wanted to know, i’m thinking of having a hair transplant and the only way would be with the FUE procedure. i’ve been saving money for that the past 4 years just for this, so was just wondering let say i get a mega session done with about 2,500 to 3,000 hairs how much would that cost??
and doesn’t matter when i get it even if its on a stand by procedure could you give me a rough estimate?? so i can keep on saving so what i have is not enough. once again thanks for your answer and keep up the great work!!
First, we generally use the term “grafts” which will contain 1, 2, 3, or 4 hairs. I have heard of some doctors doing 2500 to 3000 graft FUE procedures, but in my experience as the one who first published the FUE techniques in 2002 (which all doctors use), megasession FUE of that high a number may be dangerous in terms of the graft survivability and donor area scarring.
At New Hair Institute, we usually limit the FUE to 1500 maximum, but may flow over into a second day surgery in special cases where the donor density is good. The cost of FUE at NHI is now $8/graft with my associate Dr. Pak. We do not offer the FUE procedure in our standby program.
