Our Pricing Policy in Hair Transplant


We are the first center in Hong Kong to advocate a Fixed Price Policy. After consultation the doctor will advise you the minimal number of grafts required for your procedure. We calculate your surgical fee according to this number of grafts. This is all you have to pay for!

What Happens to Extra grafts?
No graft will be wasted - All extra graft will be planted for free.

What Happen with Less Grafts?
If we cannot get the promised number, the difference will be refunded.

Example :
You pay for 1,000 grafts. If we get 1,100 grafts, you have the extra 100 for free.
If we only get 900, we refund the cost for 1,000 - 900 = 100 grafts.

Nearly all hair transplant centers in the world use "Per Graft" as the standard unit in calculating price. Some centers however use "hair" as the counting unit to give a false impression of higher number and cheaper price. We follow the international standard and use "per graft" in your quotation.

A graft is an intact piece of hair bearing tissue inserted into each incison made in the recipient site. Each graft can contain 1 to 5 hairs. In this picture:
- top row are 8 of one-hair graft (single FU graft);
- mid row are 9 of two- hair grafts (double FU graft);
- bottom are 6 of three-hair grafts.
- total 23 grafts or 44 hairs

On average a FUT graft has 1.8 hair whilst a FUE graft has 2.2 hair.

•   All oral or topical medication required before and during procedure
•   Surgical fee
•   4 Months wound care and follow-up after hair transplant



How We Estimate Hair Transplant Cost ?


Estimating the cost is a complicated factor, and cannot be done just by a phone call or email. The cost depends mainly on the number of grafts required to achieve the expected result. 4 factors must be considered:

1.    AREA of bald area to be transplanted
2.    DENSITY or the number of graft desired per sq.cm
3.    Amount of DONOR HAIR available for the current and future transplant.
4.    Patients' EXPECTATION

During the consultation the patient and doctor need to first agree on where to transplant. Obviously the patient may want to fill up every empty spots. However the following factors must be considered:
•   Extent of current hair loss
•   Potential and extent of future loss
•   Is patient taking medication to prevent further loss
•   Budget of the patient

Priorities

Please be reminded that the purpose of hair transplant is not just to replace lost hair, but to create a visual illusion of not being bald. The most important part is to restore a hairline. Therefore hairline restoration should be the first priority. This is usually the objective of the first transplant session. The empty crown may be left for the subsequent procedure.If even less donor hair is available, our doctor may suggest to distribute the grafts unevenly, being more on the parted side. His experience and artistic mind will help to achieve your best possible result with the least number of grafts. For example the creation of a widow peak with just 10-20 grafts may make the hairline looks 'lower'.

How We Measure the Area

There are many methods to measure the transplanted area. For accuracy we are using the method described by Dr. Chang, which is simple and easy to apply. We first outline the to-be-transplanted areas with a erasable marker, then lay a clear plastic sheet on top of the marked area and trace the outline of the bald area with a fine marker. We then transfer the marked wrap onto a metric scale containing boxes of 1 cm2 and count count the actual number of blocks. The result is the area expressed as number of square centimeter. Obviously a larger area with higher density would require more grafts. For those with a tight budget raising the hairline by 1 cm would save hundred of grafts

Recommended Follicular Unit Density

Different density will be requires to achieve expected result in different ethnic groups.

  Caucasian African Asian
Normal 100 / sq.cm
( 200 Hair)
60 / sq.cm
( 160 Hair)
90 ⁄ sq.cm
( 170 Hair)
Minimal 40 /sq.cm 24 /sq.cm 35 /sq.cm
Average 45 /sq.cm 35 /sq.cm 45 /sq.cm
Dense Packing 55 /sq.cm 45 /sq.cm 55 /sq.cm


The Basic - Appearance of Fullness

A full head of hair appearance is Maintained until approximately 50% of the original hair volume is lost. Thinning is apparent when light is reflected from the scalp, creating a "see-through". There is a critical density below which no visual impact will be perceived. Those with a limited budget or donor hair should make a compromise on area but not density

Early Thinning Moderate thinning Bald
Losing 50% of hair Losing 70% of hair Losing 90% of hair
Scalp visible under bright lights or when wet Scalp visible in almost all situations No visible hair

The 50 : 30 Rules

•   The human eyes are not very reliable sensors, especially in counting hair
•   The eyes cannot tell the differences when the density is above 50%
•   Consequently having 50% to 100% of the original density just look the same from a distance


Application in Hair Transplant - Illusion of Density

•   The same principle can be applied when replacing hair
•   We only need to replace 50% of the original density to achieve an appearance of fullness
•   Spreading grafts over large area with density below 30% would not achieve satisfactory result


Other Factors to Consider

The appearance of fullness is not just determined by hair density. The following factors must be considered when planning the number of grafts:
•   Diameter of hair shaft
•   Color contrast between hair and scalp
•   Straight hair, wavy hair, or curly hair
•   Amount of Existing hair

The following factors of donor hair must be considered when planning number of grafts:
•   Diameter of hair shaft
•   Color contrast between hair and scalp
•   Straight hair, wavy hair, or curly hair
•   Laxity at the Donor Area
•   Previous hair transplant, especially FUE
•   Density and Quality of donor hair
•   Size of Safe Donor Area, and amount of available donor hair for the life-time

During consultation, the doctor will determine the final cost according to:
•   Your expectation - average vs. high density
•   Level of the re-designed hairline
•   Hairline Restore vs. Add-on Density
•   The Recipient Area - shaved or not shaved

      Number of Graft   =   Area ( sq.cm )    X   Density

Example 1
An Asian wants to transplant an area of 50 sq.cm at minimal density, the number of grafts required :
= 50 X 35 = 1,750 FU

Example 2
A Caucasian wants to transplant an area of 50 sq.cm with dense packing, the number of grafts required :
= 50 X 50 = 2,500 FU
