FUE hair transplantation prices dropped a lot in recent years. What is the reason behind this drop?
When FUE hair transplantation methods were being applied in 2004, it was taking longer time (2-3 times more) to apply compared to Fut hair transplantation method; for this reason, FUE hair transplantation prices were higher.
In the years of 2007 to 2009, FUE hair transplantation prices were dropped in correlation with the increase on the speed of follicle collecting; since the operation time was shortened, the prices were dropped but they were still two times more than Fut method.
In 2009 and recent years, FUE hair transplantation operation length was reduced to 7-8 hours; therefore, the prices dropped to current levels.
FUE hair transplantation performed by unqualified people, even by a hairstylist; and the prices might be cheaper. In hair transplantation centers you can have hair transplantation by doctors for the right prices.
Is the price determined by follicle count or hair count in FUE hair transplantation?
Follicle count is definitely important for FUE hair transplantation; but as mentioned before, the frequency is not only determined by follicle count. It is applied 1.5 hairs in some places and 2.6 in other places. Hair situation in donor site, location of transplantation area and frequency of hair will change this average.
