Harley Street Hair Transplant Clinics patient Aaron before and after

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.

Very few can deliver a professional service whilst ensuring that all clients receive first -class personalised treatment, turning what can be a daunting experience into something of relative ease. Both Kevin, Dr Karla, and their surgical team certainly did this (and then some!) Once my mind was made up to have hair loss treatment, I was keen to get my transplant done asap. Kevin exceeded all my expectations with this - it’s hard to believe that my journey from first consultation to surgery happened in the space of one month. Efficiency did not stop there - on the day of surgery, my transplant was completed in less than 6 hours, all the while ensuring that I was comfortable and pain-free. Security is the best word that comes to mind to describe Dr Karla’s care -you know you’re in experienced hands! Now I can look forward to the results over the next few months, with the added peace of mind that the Harley Street Clinic team are only a phone call or email away to address any concerns. They will be the first name I will recommend to anyone looking for effective hair loss treatment, and I hope to make use of their service again in the future should I need it.

From my first contact with Kevin he has provided great customer service, responding quickly or questions, offering consultations and giving me time to make my decision (not a salesman like I have experienced before). He is extremely knowledgeable in this area and so far everything he has told me has been true! Dr Kalra is a fantastic doctor and he knows everything there is to know about hair loss, I trust him completely. The surgery went smoothly, some of the injections hurt at the start but after that it’s the sitting still for hours that is the hardest part. The nurses were also brilliant they were happy to talk to you if you initiated conversation but didn’t chew your ear off if you were quiet. It is 4 months since my surgery and the the hair in the top of my head is almost fully covered with a few thinner spots where I previously had no hair at all, it seems to be noticeably thickening up weekly so I think one more month and no one would ever know I used to be bald! The donor area was completely healed and unnoticeable after 4 weeks. The aftercare has also been great, I have followed the instructions and I am very happy with the results so far.

I got a hair transplant and PRP for my hair. Im 19 years old and it’s the best decision I made so far. Manchester hair transplant clinic have been amazing. They were brilliant at welcoming me into getting a hair transplant and amazing at doing the job right. I will defiantly be going to them later on in my life if/when another is needed due to my age. I would highly recommend their service to anyone interested 😊

So after years of thinking about having a hair transplant i finally phoned up Harley street hair transplant clinic and spoke to Kevin who was extremely helpful answering all my questions.The transplant was on the 29th Jan 2022 by Dr Kalra and his team who made me feel really relaxed and comfortable. They were all very professional and very friendly. The procedure went great, no pain at all and I was extremely happy with the results. I can’t thank Kevin, Dr Kalra and his team enough, even the after care was unbelievable, thanks again guys. Highly recommend, 5 star service all day long. Cheers Richie
I was quite scared before going into surgery, but Dr kalra reassured me the procedures were straight forward and easy going. And he was amazing and so were the team. Everyone was polite and professional and I will recommend this team to anybody else 🙂

Had my FUE hair transplant on Saturday 5th February 2022 for receding hair line and balding crown. I’ve been thinking about a hair transplant for the last 2 years, I’ve heard bad stories and good stories as you do when you look through the internet or watching YouTube videos. I spoke with Kevin in January, great with explaining everything and putting me at ease (as I naturally worry about anything and everything). I wanted the surgery done as soon as possible after speaking to Kevin as everything felt right. Kevin arranged this for me and before I knew it here I am after surgery thinking what was I ever worried about and why didn’t I get this done sooner, however, things happen for a reason and that reason I hadn’t had it done sooner was I hadn’t found the right place or team to do the transplant and I’m glad that happened as I found Harley street hair transplant. I would highly recommend Kevin - Dr Kalra and his team. Thank you all for giving me my confidence back and making me feel like a different person. I am 4 days into my recovery and feel great. If you are reading this review and are like me with worrying about everything then please stop worrying, you are in safe hands before, during and after the procedure with Kevin, Dr Kalra and his team, just go for it. Thank you all again 😁

Massive Thankyou to all the team . After months of indecision as to wether to have a hair transplant or not ,i finally made the decision to make that first call,im so glad i did,im so pleased i went with Dr Khalra and his team. I first spoke to Kevin he come across as a very honest and genuine guy who was certainly very knowledgable about all the procedure ,after speaking to him i decided that these were the people i wanted to go with. On the day of the procedure i was very nervous,but on meeting Dr Kalra and his team i was immediately put at ease ,he was very reassuring and such a lovely friendly guy as was his team,It was all very proffesionally done in a lovely clean and modern clinic in Bury. Throughout the day i felt i was in really good hands with Dr Khalra and his team Naz and Raz ( hope ive spelt it right). Im now 7weeks into my Fue hair transplant and looking forward to the coming months to see the results . Ive no hesitation in recommending Dr Khalra Kevin and the team ,they are definitely the right people to go to if you are considering having a procedure done . Again i cant thank you enough . Mark..
