When it comes to hair transplants, it is important to find one of the best hair transplant Connecticut surgeons. Jandali Plastic Surgery was one of the first plastic surgery practices in Connecticut to offer Neograft for follicular unit hair transplantation. We are experts in aesthetics and wanted to be able to offer beautiful and natural hair restoration in our practice. We decided to bring Neograft into our practice to meet this need among our patients. Hair restoration in both men and women can have incredible positive effects, both cosmetic and psychological. What is also amazing is how hair restoration can take years off an individual’s appearance.
Hair transplant cost varies from patient to patient, depending on the number of grafts (follicular units) being transplanted. The makers of Neograft have established minimum pricing that is allowed to be offered by practices. Therefore, when it comes down to the cost of Neograft hair transplants, there is actually not much variation between practices, except for occasional promotions and specials. So if you are searching for the best hair transplant prices in Connecticut, your time is better spent on looking at experience and real patient reviews.
In addition, we have heard from patients about misleading pricing from other practices. These other practices will market very low costs per grafts, but just tell patients that they need more grafts than should be performed in one session. They are likely quoting the number of hairs, not grafts (follicular units) that are being transplanted. This is confusing to patients as it does not allow apples to apples comparison of pricing. There can be anywhere between 1 to 4 hairs per graft or follicular unit, which is why number of transplanted hairs should not be used to calculate the cost of what is needed. This should always be calculated and discussed in terms of grafts or follicular units that are needed for the desired outcome.
For those thinking of undergoing hair transplantation, a cost range for mild to moderate hair loss would range from $6000 to $12,000. The exact cost depends on exactly how many grafts are needed, which can only be determine at your consultation and ultimately on the day of your hair transplant procedure. Our practice offers patient financing with CareCredit and Alphaeon, which our staff can assist you in applying for. Both of these financing companies offer no interest plans, but also extended plans with interest.
Not everyone is a good candidate for hair transplants.
Male patients that are young (under mid 20’s) are not good candidates because they are often going to lose more hair and hair loss should stabilize before surgery. For these patients, it is best to start Propecia, Rogaine, and PRP injections.
Patients that don’t have good thick hair in the back of their head (the donor area) are also poor candidates, since there is a limited supply of hair to transplant.
Finally, men with complete baldness of the top of the head, the frontal area and crown, are not good candidates. These patients have such limited donor supply to spread out over such a large area, and will not be able to obtain any good density.
With regard to women, women with diffuse thinning or active shedding of their hair need a thyroid and hormonal workup first. Women with stable female pattern baldness are the best candidates for hair transplants.
The best way to see if you are a hair transplant candidate is to come into our office for a consultation with Dr. Jandali and our physician assistant.
We pride ourselves on customer service. We take utmost care in making the patient comfortable before and after their hair transplant procedure. Every patient is given a goodie bag with all the supplies needed to care for their hair after the procedure. We have a dedicated and discrete Neograft hair transplant room. We offer an iPad for entertainment during the treatment. We work with the best Neograft technicians who have an average of 10-20 years of experience with harvesting and implanting grafts.
Being a plastic surgery practice, we have the added ability to add other treatments to the transformative process, be it surgical or non-surgical. Treatments that are often combined with hair transplants include:
