A man and woman spend time together outdoorsThe team at MD Hair Transplant has served the greater Washington DC with pride, helping patients have full and natural-looking heads of hair again. Modern hair transplantation surgery techniques mean natural hairline and great results, though the cost of care sometimes puts it out of reach for some patients. Let's take a moment to consider the cost of follicular unit transplantation (FUE) and what payment options are out there.

What is the average cost of follicular unit transplantation (FUE)?

The average cost of FUE can vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors. Because of this, we do not feel that providing an average cost for care or even a general price range would tell the whole story about the procedure.

With this in mind, we encourage you to visit MD Hair Transplant in person for a consultation. This will allow us to assess your situation and provide you with a full breakdown of all the costs that would be involved in your particular surgery.

Factors That Determine the Cost of Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUE)

Some factors that determine the cost of FUE include the following:

  • The location of the hair restoration clinic
  • The training and credentials of the hair surgeon
  • The nature and extent of the patient's hair loss
  • The number of grafts required
  • The complexity of the patient's case
  • Special discounts or promotions unique to an individual hair loss clinic

Does medical insurance cover hair restoration surgery?

Hair restoration surgery is only covered by medical insurance if the hair loss is the result of injury or a medical condition. For example, if you were burned or injured and hair loss occurred, the hair restoration procedure is considered reconstructive in nature and may be covered.

For patients seeking hair restoration to address regular male pattern baldness or hair loss, insurance will not cover the procedure.

Is hair restoration surgery covered by flex spending accounts (FSAs)?

As with medical insurance, hair restoration for male pattern baldness or regular hair loss is not eligible for FSA reimbursement. With that in mind, hair restoration for reconstructive purposes may be eligible for FSA reimbursements. Be sure to check with you FSA provider about these matters.

How Monthly Financing Works

Given that insurance coverage is unlikely for a number of patients, the use of monthly financing is common for hair restoration surgery. Monthly financing options break the total cost of care into affordable installments with interest applied to the amount owed. It functions much like a traditional loan or credit card.

The Benefits of Monthly Financing for Hair Restoration

Monthly financing places restoration within reach for many people who would otherwise be unable to undergo treatment. The payments allow patients to manage their finances and budget a set amount to pay for their procedure each month.

Is monthly financing right for me?

Each patient's situation is different, which is why it's important to discuss your payment options with our team. During the consultation process, we will be more than happy to answer all of your questions and help you determine the ideal payment method to achieve your goals without breaking the bank.
