Hair Restoration Goals
To determine your hair restoration goals, it’s best to start with a consultation with Dr. Charkawi. Learning about the physical causes of hair loss, the latest treatments available, and giving thought to your individual situation are all part of the decision-making process when it comes to hair restoration. The next logical question is, “How much does it cost?” Zach Charkawi, M.D. the founder of Men’s Health Atlanta, has invested a great deal of time and study in the area of hair restoration. He understands his patients’ feelings and works with them to form a short-term or long-term plan to achieve their hair restoration goals. Hair restoration can be done in stages, and Dr. Charkawi discusses treatment plan options and the financial aspects of the rejuvenation process in depth with his patients.
The first step in the hair restoration process is the consultation. The cost of a consultation is $150.00. This consultation fee will be deducted from the total cost of the procedure when you move forward with the hair transplant procedure. We accept cash and all major credit cards for the consultation fee. At the consultation appointment, Dr. Charkawi will use several evaluation tools to determine the best course of action for addressing your hair loss:
- A complete scalp examination including a microscopic evaluation of your hair
- A thorough patient medical history
- A full assessment of hair transplant options
- A hair design and decision on the number of grafts needed for your transplant
- Lab work or scalp biopsy in some patients*If there is a medical condition causing the hair loss, it must be treated before any hair restoration plan is undertaken. If we don’t discover another medical condition causing hair loss, the most likely diagnosis is male-or female-pattern baldness.
Hair Implant Cost
Since each patient has a particular “look” or goal in mind, the cost of hair transplants varies. Once Dr. Charkawi has examined you and clearly understands your hair restoration goal, he can calculate the number of grafts needed to affect the change you want. This will allow Dr. Charkawi to give you a price figure that you can understand and trust. Prices for the FUT procedure typically average around $4 to $6 per graft for the STRIP method. The automated FUE method typically requires twice the amount of labor and time as compared to the linear STRIP method. Each graft costs $8. The surgical fee is increased according to the amount of time required to complete the procedure. A permanent hair transplant procedure can range from $5000 and up depending on the method you choose and the extent of your hair loss. A $1,000 deposit fee must be paid to schedule the procedure. The deposit is completely refundable if you cancel 14 days prior to the date of surgery. We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards for surgical fees.
Hair transplants are not typically covered by insurance. Therefore, we do not file insurance paperwork for our clients. However, you can check with your insurance carrier to see if any part of the procedure is covered. We will prepare any documents that you require to submit an insurance claim.
Each patient is unique; therefore, results may vary.
