2. Hair Transplant Clinic Metro Manila Nov 2016
Grafts FUT: 6000 Price: 390,000 PHP (approx $7,900 £6,400)
Your photos show that you have receding hairline, thinning hair at the frontal area, and an enlarged thinning at the crown. You can be classified under Norwood IV-V.
You will be needing a lot of grafts to fill in all the thinning areas. If you desire to create a new hairline, increase density on the front and add density in the crown area, you will be needing at least approximately 6,000 grafts total for both the front and back.
How did we come up with that number? The frontal area is roughly 60 cm2. The recommended number of grafts to be transplanted ranges from 20-50 grafts/cm2. If we multiply the thinning area with 50 (maximum number of grafts/cm2 that can be transplanted in a bald scalp), then recommended number to be transplanted is 3,000 grafts (60 cm2 x 50 grafts).
The crown area is also roughly 60 cm2. If we try to put 50 grafts/ cm2 then the recommended number of grafts in the crown area will be another 3,000 grafts.
Remember that this is only a rough estimate based on your photos and the actual number will be given during consultation.
Our team specializes in FUT/ strip transplantation. We prefer this over FUE since we find the strip technique more beneficial for our patients for the following reasons:
- Better graft harvesting with strip/FUT – there is left graft transection in strip compared to FUE which translates to better graft survival.
- Better graft preparation with strip/FUT- all grafts are prepared and visualized under the microscope unlike FUE where grafts are pulled out forcibly from the scalp.
- An invisible scar can already be achieved with strip/FUT – Invisible scars can now be obtained with strip/ FUT by incorporating the trichophytic closure technique.
- Bigger number of grafts can be harvested using strip/ FUT – Since you will be needing a lot of grafts because of the large area of bladness, the strip technique can harvest more grafts in one time compared to that of FUE. Less sessions will be required.
- Pain is now negligible with strip/FUT – We use oral pain relievers, twilight sedation, local and tumescent anesthesia for maximum patient comfort.
- Downtime is minimal – Donor area is better concealed with strip than with FUE pot hair transplant.
- Majority of hair transplant doctors still use strip/ FUT – about 80% of hair transplant doctors around the world still use the strip technique for harvesting.
- Strip FUT is a lot cheaper compared to FUE
- Insertion part is just the same for both strip/FUT and FUE
- Technique is team dependent. Whether it be strip or FUE what is important is that the team is comfortable and confident with the technique they use to give you best results.
One more thing, 6,000 grafts cannot be done in one session. A patient on average can only donate +/- 3,000 grafts in one session. This is dictated by your hair density and scalp elasticity. My transplant team can also only do 3,000 grafts per session by strip. This means that you would have to schedule for another session 6-8 months apart for complete coverage. For strip you might need 2-3 sessions and for FUE maybe more.
Our cost is Php 65 per graft for strip/fut. Please find attached with this email our fees for the hair transplant procedure and inclusions/ exclusions to the cost.
As an example based on the attached chart:
1,500 grafts will cost Php 97,500 (1,500 x Php 65)

4. Hair Transplant Clinic Metro Manila Nov 2016
Grafts: 2500 Price: 250000 php (approx $5,000 £4,100)
Good day, I was able to received your email inquiry regarding your plan for hair transplant surgery.
Well, first of all it would be nice if can see photos of your head (front, side, top and back) so I could ascertain the number of grafts you would need and also gauge the feasibility of your donor site. It would be best, of course, if you can see me for a personal consultation. I guarantee complete confidentiality.
There are two types of hair transplant procedure to choose from depending on the concern/s of the patient or results they want. Hope you don’t mind, I would just like to give you a brief information about the hair transplant procedure.
Hair Transplant Hair transplantation is widely considered to be the most effective option for restoring hair because it’s a permanent, relatively simple procedure, and it achieves a natural look.
In most cases, the cause of hair loss can be traced to the hormone DHT. As men grow and mature, some are more prone than others to have their hair fall out, while others resist the effect of male hormones, and keep their hair usually for their entire life Hair that is genetically programmed not to fall out is generally located in a horseshoe shaped area in the back of the head.
Hair transplantation is the simple in-office procedure of removing these DHT-resistant follicles from the donor area (the back or sides of the head) and inserting this hair into the thinning and balding areas on the top and front of the head.
Hair from the donor area is genetically programmed to grow for the rest of one’s life. The most important feature of a successful hair transplant involves achieving a natural-looking hairline and the right hair density, without any signs of the treatment being noticeable.
Technical progress and improvements over the last decades have contributed greatly towards achieving complete naturalness. Through increasingly smaller grafts, a greater amount of hairs can now be extracted and transplanted.
In the field of hair transplantation, we distinguish between two techniques, FUT and FUE. The main difference between the two lies in the way the follicle units are extracted.
In an FUT, the strip technique is used, by which a strip of the scalp with hairs on it is taken from the back of the head, with its hair follicles subsequently being extracted.
Using FUE, individual follicular units are extracted directly from the scalp.
Both techniques – FUE and FUT – have very good success prospects, but: there is no one best or right method – each method has its own pros and cons. The decision on which extraction method to use should be individually weighed up in consultation with the hair restoration surgeon. There Are many factors needing to be taken into consideration.
A hair surgeon must be in a position to assess future natural hair loss, the quality and density of existing hair, and in particular the hair structure. He must also be able to calculate the number of grafts needing to be extracted to fulfil a patient’s wishes, discuss alternative forms of treatment such as a medication-based therapy, and explain to the patient the pros and cons of each technique.
In addition, comprehensive tests need to be carried out before any recommendation for any one extraction method can be issued. The extraction of hair follicles is just one of many aspects needing to be taken into account in any successful hair transplant. Should little or no attention be paid to other aspects such as the incisions, there is a great possibility of the result not meeting up to expectations.
This is why the success of any FUE or FUT transplant is to a great extent dependent on the training, experience, techniques and technology, ability, intuition and expertise of the hair restoration surgeon: though both extraction techniques require extensive know-how and experience, the FUE extraction technique is much more demanding.
In a nutshell: irrespective of which operation technique is used, any FUE or FUT transplant should always be performed by an experienced specialist. An FUE is best for patients wanting to avoid a linear scar at all costs, and for younger patients only requiring minor treatment.
Moreover, FUE is the right choice when transplanting body hair or when corrective / reconstructive hair surgery is involved. FUE is also good for patients with (very) little donor hair, as well as for patients with a tendency to extreme scarring or patients wanting to wear their hair very short.
Patients with a Norwood V or VI diagnosis should choose a combination of FUE and FUT to attain the highest possible number of donor hairs. Though both extraction techniques basically allow the same number of hairs to be extracted, there is one major difference.
In an FUT, under good working conditions, 4000 – 5000 FUs can be extracted in one operation session. The corresponding figure for FUE is 3000 – 3500 FUs. Using the FUE technique, a second operation is generally needed to achieve the same number of FUs. This can only take place some 6 months later. The hair density needing to be achieved (30 – 90 FUs per cm²) is possible with both techniques, meaning that the selected extraction method has no appreciable influence on the end result.
Using experience as a guideline, it can be said that an FUE is less painful and that healing is quicker. Nevertheless, FUE is an operation with no 100 % guarantee of success.

1. Hair Transplant Clinic Melbourne Nov 2016
Grafts: 3000 – 3500 Price: $19,900 AUD (approx £11,700 $14,350 US)
I have observed your photos closely,
Would you like to have a normal hairline with slight recession, like you once did? The second stage would be to add hair to the crown area also to fill in with density.
The middle area seems ok and would definitely add the final look of a full healthy head of hair again. Without seeing you in person I would suggest 3000-3500 grafts as this will give you the nice cosmetic look and younger appearance especially if I focus on a strong hairline, many make this mistake by not attending to this in transplantation and are left with a weak “whispy” hairline which doesn’t look good at all, in fact it may give the appearance your losing your hair as most people will always talk to your face therefore a strong hairline provides you the confidence in appearance rather than weak hairline.
The approx price will be in the range of $19,900.

I am sending you Dr.*** opinion of your case with the cost of the hair transplant operation with some details about the operation, Dr.*** comment on your case is :
Your donor area looks very good, you would definitely benefit from a single hair transplant operation. I expect to harvest approximately 3,500 grafts in your case. Your open areas are not large and it still has existing, native hair which together should enhance its chances for success. I expect you to be satisfied with the results of a single FUE session and to have the full density at the front and the crown area.
We do the whole operation by the FUE technique utilising a smaller diameter punch, 0.7 mm, which provides an even faster recovery period and a more natural appearance and is more comfortable for the patients. This technique is completely safe and done under a local anaesthesia and you will stay conscious during the operation. The operation is done in hospital in one day it takes about 6-7 hours, also we give you PRP treatment during the operation to prevent loss of existing and new transplanted hair after the surgical operation.
Dr.*** uses the FUE motorised technique because this technique allows the extraction of more grafts from the donor area in a small time without damaging the original hair root or having any said effect after the operation.
With the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique and Dr. ***’s experience you will not have any pain during or even after the operation. Micro scars will disappear in 10 days, that means a fast recovery period and you can get back to your normal activity the next day because there is not any said effect.
At the end of the second week, the hair strands will split and fall by leaving their root inside the scalp, therefore, the transplanted hair will fall down in the first few months. In 2-3 months the new hair strands will start to grow and become visible. 40% of the new hair strands grow within 4-6 months, 60% within 6-8 months, and 90% within 8-10 months. It will be approximately one year to witness full hair growth.
Also I would like to inform you that Dr. *** performs the operation personally and only one case per day to make sure the Patient has the best operation.

Grafts: 2000 Price: £6,000 (approx $7,500)
Using the FUE method, your procedure would allow for approximately 2000 grafts to be transplanted. This would cost £6000 .
If you chose the ‘strip’ method, rather than the FUE method, we would be able to transplant a higher number of grafts (approximately 2500 grafts), which would be at a cost of £5500. This would provide a slightly better result, simply because more hair would be transplanted. The ‘strip’ method leaves a fine scar on the back of the head, which will show if the hair is ever shaved at the back. The ‘strip’ method does not require us to shave or trim any of your hair in order to carry out the procedure .
