How much does a hair transplant cost?
The rates for a hair transplant are highly variable and can be as high as €16,100 in the Netherlands. Most insurance companies regard a hair transplant as a cosmetic procedure and are therefore usually not reimbursed.
The costs depend on a number of factors. These five factors are explained below. The costs for the treatment are therefore personal and can be calculated via our handy quick scan hair transplants.
Hair loss in more than 95% of men is the result of hereditary baldness. Many of them have tried to combat it by using restorative shampoos, herbal remedies, preventive creams and, for example, sprays. Some interventions work to a degree; but in many cases none offer a permanent solution. This is where a hair transplant can provide a solution. But what are the costs for a hair transplant? And what do these costs depend on?
Five factors that determine the price of a hair transplant
The cost of a hair transplant generally depends on the following five factors:
1. Your place of residence
The cost of living in the area where you want to have a hair transplant affects the total cost of your hair transplant. The area also has to do with the costs that the surgeon charges for such treatment. Further on this page you will see an overview of the costs of a hair transplant in various countries.
2. The type of treatment you choose
There are different types of hair transplant techniques. The most common at the moment are Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Direct Hair Implantation ( DHI). Some clinics still use the FUT-technique. With this technique you will be left with a visible scar, this is of course not preferred.
3. Your Surgeon’s Skill
This is a common correlation: If your surgeon is considered one of the best, they may charge more. At the same time, higher rates don’t always mean superior skill, so research carefully.
4. How much hair will be moved
Many providers use the costs per grafts to be moved. If you only have a small area that you want to have filled, this will cost considerably less than if the hair has to be filled over the entire scalp.
5. Travel costs
This isn’t something the doctor will charge you directly, but it’s still an expense you might want to consider. If you opt for a hair transplant in Turkey, for example, note whether your travel, accommodation and transport costs are included here. That way you won’t be faced with any surprises.

Why a hair transplant in Turkey and what are the costs?
The average rate of a hair transplant in Turkey is around €2,000, while in the US it is around €15,000. The advantages of a hair transplant in Turkey include the lower costs, the modern hair transplant methods, the lifelong growth guarantee that is offered and the number of grafts that can be placed in Turkey is much higher. The large differences from country to country is one of the main reasons why people choose to have their hair transplant done abroad. In most cases you can combine a hair transplant with a holiday and still save thousands of euros.
For many people, a hair transplant in the Netherlands is not affordable, and with the advancement in technology in other countries such as Turkey, hair transplants have become both more accessible and affordable. In the past, those who considered hair transplantation abroad were not triggered enough due to the lack of information about prices and clinics abroad. Although the price is much lower in many foreign clinics, this does not mean that the quality of service is of a lower level. Today, the benefits of treatment in Turkey outweigh the drawbacks.
