Why FUE Hair Transplant Costs more

As stated above, FUE cost is usually compared with its closest alternative, the strip removal method, also known as FUT hair transplant. Since both techniques use hair from the patient’s scalp for transplantation purpose, there is no obvious reason for this difference in price. But if you look into the procedures, FUT is an easy way to harvest large number of donor grafts. All that the surgeon has to do is excise a strip of hair bearing skin from the scalp. The technical staff then dissects this strip under powerful microscope to separate individual grafts.

FUE, on the other hand, requires extract of each graft individually. Therefore, to extract 2000 grafts, the surgeon has to make at least two thousand punches. Besides that, extraction of grafts through FUE method requires more skilled and experienced surgeon. This is why FUE transplantation costs more as compared to the traditional strip method transplant.
