If you’re looking for a hair transplant surgeon to help you combat your thinning hair, the most obvious place to look is in your local town, right? In some cases, perhaps, however that’s not how the story played out for North Carolina resident Brian Turner. After initially searching for a hair transplant doctor in his home city of Charlotte, Brian looked further afield and was surprised by what he discovered.
The rise of cheap domestic flights within the United States has changed the way people search for a hair transplant doctor. With the entire nation within a relatively short, low cost journey, clients are able to take advantage of the best deals available from clinics across the United States, not just in their immediate locality. In Brian’s case, he found a much better hair transplant deal by looking outside of Charlotte, NC.
How did the deal stack up?
Brian requested a quotation from two local clinics in Charlotte. Needing 2000 grafts, the first clinic quoted $6.00 per graft for FUT or $9.00 per graft for FUE. The second clinic quoted $5.50 per graft for FUT, or $8.00 per graft for FUE.
When Brian contacted Hair Restoration Centers, we provided a quotation of $3.00 per graft for FUT, or $6.00 per graft for FUE. The only caveat was that he had to fly to New York City for his procedure. The flights cost $325 for his round trip, plus a hotel room at $140 per night for 2 nights. Most of this cost was offset via a $600 travel allowance deducted from the cost of his procedure, as is standard practice at Hair Restoration Centers.
So here were Brian’s total costs. Costs for clinic #3 include costs and allowances:
- Clinic #1 (Charlotte, NC) – $12,000 for FUT, or $18,000 for FUE
- Clinic #2 (Charlotte, NC) – $11,000 for FUT, or $16,000 for FUE
- HRC Clinic #3 (Westchester, NY) – $6000 for FUT, or $12,000 for FUE
Let’s not forget that our quotations were for a procedure with none other than Dr. Andrew Kleinman, one of the world’s most respected hair transplant surgeons. For more information about Dr Kleinman and our NY location click here.
Sometimes it makes sense to travel outside of your immediate locality for hair transplant surgery. In Brian’s case, he saved several thousand dollars on quotations for both FUT and FUE. The costs speak for themselves.
