We met with hair transplant expert to find out just how much you would pay to restore your hair at a top Harley Street clinic.
We asked leading Harley Street hair transplant expert Phillip Bell, what is the secret? Do you need to break the bank for a quality hair transplant? He told us “The simple answer is no, you do not need to be a millionaire to get a good hair transplant. However, an attractive price should not be the deciding factor when choosing a clinic. Instead, select a good quality clinic that has a reputation for producing outstanding results.”
Phillip explained “In our practice, we see a lot of people with horrible results from cheaper local clinics and recently from international locations. Remember, if it sounds to good to be true, it usually is. Having a bad hair transplants that look pluggy and unnatural are not only a waste of your time and money, but these clinics have often destroyed the client’s donor area making the damage hard to repair. The cheapest hair transplants often become the most expensive in the end as extensive corrective procedures are needed.”
But, just how much is a good hair transplant in the UK?
Most hair transplant in the UK will cost around £4.000 – £5.000 per day of treatment. This will however depend on the technique used, FUE or FUT being the two main techniques so the final price could be lower or higher depending on the treatment plan. The number of sessions needed to cover the bald area will vary according the patient’s specific condition. Up to 100% finance is available for UK residents and many patients prefer to pay in monthly instalments as low as £200 per month making the best hair transplants affordable on almost any budget.
Now knowing the price tag, how do I know that a clinic is fully registered and safe?
All UK hair transplant clinics must be CQC registered as an assurance of safety. Clinics, which are not registered, are operating illegally. Never have a hair transplant in a clinic that rents surgical premises from other clinics and hires freelancers to operate or multi speciality clinics, this simply doesn’t work when it comes to hair transplants, you want someone only focused on hair. These clinics have no real accountability and these practices are not legal in the UK. If you have a problem you will be left on your own.
