Harley Street before and after hairline area

The cost of a hair transplant in the UK varies depending typically on a couple of factors:

  1. the amount of hair loss and
  2. the area(s) that it is located in.
  3. the hair type (afro hair tends to be much trickier to extract and implant so carries an extra cost)

The NHS website states that the cost varies from £1,000 to £30,000 which is quite a large bracket that most (if not all uk clinics) fall in. Typically most clinics will start from around £3,000.

Our Hair Transplant Costs

How much does a hair transplant cost in the UK? This is a frequently asked question. Our pricing starts from £3,000 for very minor cases and can go up to £7,000 for major cases.

Because again that range is quite a broad one and only covers the cost of 1 procedure, we are going to go a bit further in explaining the costs for the various factors that affect the cost of a hair transplant.

We are not the cheapest nor the most expensive, however we believe we are very competitively and fairly priced given that we operate on a surgeon lead approach and NOT a technician lead approach as some cheaper provider are and thus can get the cost lower. We believe we have achieved the correct balance of value for money.

How Do We Calculate the Cost of a Hair Transplant

To calculate the cost of a hair transplant, we firstly look at the area of hair loss along with the donor area of the head. This will determine if the patient is a good candidate for a hair transplant. We then classify the area of hair loss via the norwood scale for men and the ludwig scale for women. This will then give us an idea of the amount of grafts that are needed in order to achieve a natural looking hair transplant so that he patient is happy with the results. It will also give us an idea of the amount of work involved and be able to give a fairly accurate price.

The best way to get an accurate price for any type of hair transplant procedure is to have a free one on one consultation with one of our expert consultants at Harley Street Hair Transplant Clinic London.

Cost of a FUE Hair Transplant

The follicular unit extraction (or fue) procedure is the most common one as it’s the latest and best hair transplant procedure where individual hairs (or hair follicles) are taken from the donor area and transplanted to the areas of hair loss. It takes time and skill from our surgeon and team. The majority of our procedures are done via this method and the average cost is around £5,500 currently.

Cost of a Beard Transplant

We tend to use the same procedure for beard transplants as hair transplants. Typically the cost of a beard transplant is between £3,500 and £6,000 again, depending on the of hair that needs to be transplanted.

Cost of an Eyebrow Transplant

Just like hair and beard transplants, we use the FUE procedure for eyebrow transplants. These tend to cost on average around £4,000 as they are one of the focal points of a person’s face and thus we have to take more time to get the detail and design correct as the “devil is in the details” as they say.

This is typically one of the lowest graft numbers and are usually for eyebrow transplants. The cost is usually around £3,000 – £3,500 depending on the amount of work involved.

We are on eyebrow and beard territory with these grafts numbers as well as some small hairline work. Typically the cost is around £4,000 – £4,500 depending on the amount of work involved.

Moving onto more dense beard transplants as well as fuller hairlines. The cost is around £4,500 – £5,000 depending on the amount of work involved.

This is pretty much an average amount of grafts that the majority of our patients require. It is usually receding hairline work or crown work. The cost is typically around £5,500 – £6,000.

Moving onto larger areas of hair loss now, 2,500 grafts is where either multiple areas get covered or one larger area that requires coverage and some density. The cost is typically around £6,000 – £6,500.

3,000 grafts is the maximum number of grafts that we recommend and perform in one procedure. This is to protect the donor hair from over harvesting and to aid in healing and recovery time. The cost for this is typically around £6,500 – £7,000.

Now we are entering the 2 stage procedure territory regarding hair transplants as typically a 4,000 graft procedure means extensive hair loss. We would split a 4,000 graft procedure into 2 stages in order to achieve the best possible result keeping the patient’s health in mind and top priority when it comes to healing of their donor area. The price would be around £9,500 – £10,000.

Now we are definitely entering the 2 stage procedure territory regarding hair transplants as typically a 5,000 graft procedure means extensive hair loss. We would split a 5,000 graft procedure into 2 stages in order to achieve the best possible result keeping the patient’s health in mind and top priority when it comes to healing of their donor area. The price would be around £11,000 – £12,000.

Finance Options

We are now offering a couple of hair transplant finance options from our finance partners. This is to help spread the cost over into more manageable monthly payments for our patients over a maximum of 5 years (60 months).

True Cost Vs Value of Hair Transplants

Hair transplant costs are typically the highest in the hair loss / hair restoration market. The main reasons for this are the time, skill and responsibility of care that goes with it when comparing to other treatments that cost less. It is also one of a handful of clinically proven treatments that work for hair growth.

We understand very well that losing your hair can have a devastating psychological impact regarding self confidence and image/identity irrespective of the amount of hair loss experienced.

There are of course other treatments to solve this such as wearing a wig/toupe or going for a hair replacement system (in essence a glued on wig with real hair). These solutions have one thing in common: they are NOT permanent as they require ongoing maintenance. In fact when looking at the true cost of a hair transplant vs wigs/toupes/hair replacement systems, a hair transplant should be cheaper throughout a person’s lifetime. It just seems more expensive because of the larger initial lump sum cost compared with the other solutions. A comparison:

  1. Average cost of a hair transplant with us: around £5,500. Ongoing cost: 0. Replacement period: 0.
  2. Hair replacement system. Cost: between £500 – £1200 depending on area(s) of coverage (Let’s say £800 average). On going cost: £500. Replacement period: once every 6 months roughly.

That means that by your 10th hair replacement system (after roughly 5 years), you have paid as much as the average cost of a hair transplant with us, however you will have continued ongoing costs.

Also, you will not have that anxiety/fear in the back of your mind that “what if my hair system falls off” as with a hair transplant, your own hair follicles are implanted into your scalp giving that boost in self confidence and freedom from the worry and anxiety of hair loss.

Patient Testimonials

Aside from achieving fantastic results, we believe that keeping in touch with our patients before, during and after their hair transplantation procedure is paramount – it helps to keep our patients feeling calm and in control. We’re always on hand to provide guidance, support and aftercare advice. Time and again, our patients tell us that this is what sets us apart from other clinics.

"My experience with Harley Street Clinic was exceptional. I was very apprehensive about getting my FUE procedure done, as one would expect. However, Sara reassured me and was very supportive pre and post-procedure. I am so pleased with the result thus far. The new hairline suits my face, and I cannot wait to see the full results. I must thank everyone at the Harley Street Clinic for their support, guidance, and care."I had an outstanding experience with the Harley Street Clinic. Initially, I had some apprehensions about getting my Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure done, as I was unsure about how it would turn out. However, Sara, who assisted me throughout the procedure, was very supportive and helped calm my nerves. She provided me with thorough pre and post-procedure guidance, which was extremely helpful. I am delighted with the results I have seen so far. The new hairline suits my face perfectly, and I cannot wait to see the full results in the coming months. The team at the Harley Street Clinic was very supportive, and I felt like I was in good hands throughout the entire process. I would like to express my gratitude to everyone at the clinic for their support, guidance, and care. The experience was very positive, and I would highly recommend the Harley Street Clinic to anyone looking to undergo a similar procedure.

Thank you to the doctor and team. I was well looked after on the day of surgery and I’m really looking forward to the results. Initial anaesthetic injection was the only bit that I didn’t like but other than that, all good. Would recommend. David

Great surgeon, quick responses. Even drafted a Locum in to cover the original surgeon being on holiday. Very impressed with the set up and the results are very good so far.
To start, their care and procedures are absolutely incredible, if I was to base the review solely on the Dr and nurses I had for my procedure it would be an easy 5 stars. However I am rating only 4 stars, which I would consider slightly generous. I am trans, although very early transition when I had the procedure, and within the consultation I feel I was overlooked of what I wanted. After being asked what I was looking for from the procedure, I said I was trans, and wanted a natural looking feminine hairline (as well as obviously fixing my natural hairline), to which my consultant claimed that a masculine hairline would be easier to look natural. Going along with this, I thought any hairline transplant is better than nothing, and that he was the professional so I should take his advice and bite my tongue. In fairness, I was not wearing make up and was in jeans and a hoodie for the consultation, so maybe what I said just went over his head or maybe he didn’t take me seriously. In hindsight, I wish I didn’t closet myself at the first sign of push back from what I perceived as a medical professional, even talking to my doctor near the end of the procedure I felt comfortable enough to come out to him after what I had initially perceived to be a transphobic clinic (I promise you it’s not), and wish he was the one to do the consultation in the first place. He even said something along the lines of “I’ve done a masculine hairline on you, I wish you had have said something sooner”, and I didn’t want to cause any trouble for my consultant, so I didn’t say anything. All in all, the procedure went perfectly, and has healed really well. Cannot speak any higher of my doctors and nurses (although I have forgotten their names), and although not entirely happy with the hairline I received, it was done perfectly and is 100x better than my natural hairline. To all my trans girlies out there, please make it really clear what you want, look as fem as possible for the consultation, and if they push back at all - don’t let them walk all over you.

I originally took a lot of time researching a hair transplant company within the UK and came across these guys. I have to say that the whole experience has been so smooth from start to finish. Kevin has been nothing but helpful and it was encouraging to know that he only wanted the best for the client. The reason for my hair transplant was traction alopecia and even though I am only 5 days post op I can already see the potential hairline I will have in a few months time. Everything including booking, payment, forms etc was all so easy and straightforward to do with the help of Kevin. The day of the surgery I had my mum come with me and she was able to come into the room to start with before the actual surgery to help choose my hairline and Dr Kalra explained everything not only to me but to my mum also. Then it was onto the actual surgery part of the day and I have to say that while the local anaesthetic injections were pretty painful, the rest of the day was completely relaxing. Dr Kalra and the other staff (sorry I can’t remember their names) totally put me at ease. Everything was explained and if I needed anything all I had to do was ask. Post op I had a lot of bleeding in the donor area which I was worried about but Dr Kalra put my mind at ease straight away. If I had any questions or worries then Dr Kalra and Kevin were always on hand to help. 5 days post op I still have a fair amount of swelling and bruising but it is improving every day and I can’t wait to see results. I’ve booked a PRP session with Dr Kalra for 5 weeks time so I will post another update once that has been done. Thank you to everyone but special thanks to Kevin and Dr Kalra!

The whole experience was very straight forward and professional and the staff were very friendly. I felt I was in safe hands with Dr Kalra and the others who did the surgery and the aftercare process was explained very clearly to me afterwards.
