How much does a hair transplant cost in Michigan?
In Michigan, the cost of an FUE hair transplant ranges from $10,000 to $16,000! Here at Venus, a hair transplant averages $6,000 in total. Less than half the national average. More complex cases including some beard transplants, can range up to $8,000 in rare cases. As apposed to something like a tummy tuck, which only takes 2-3 hours to perform and has a similar price tag, a hair transplant can take up to 8 hours to complete and requires both a surgeon and 2-3 technicians. It is for this reason, that the treatment sometimes seems out of reach, in terms of cost.
How is an FUE hair transplant performed?
An FUE hair transplant begins by trimming your hair down to a buzz cut. Then, using a precise punch tool, thousands of hair follicles are gently extracted from the back and sides of your scalp, one at a time. This extraction period often lasts several hours depending on how many hairs are required for you to reach your goals.
The follicles are then separated under a microscope and prepared to be grafted. They are separated in to groups of single, double, and triple hair follicles. This is done so that the different types of follicles can be blending in a way that looks 100% natural. Next, in the balding area, thousands of millimeter sized holes are created for the grafts to be placed in. The grafts are then gently inserted into the recipient sites and they quickly begin to heal immediately after placement.
The entire process is performed under local anesthesia, meaning you are fully awake but your scalp is completely numb. Most patients report feeling absolutely no pain during the treatment. You are free to watch TV during the treatment and will be given multiple breaks including one for lunch.
How long is the recovery from a Hair Transplant?
While you can technically go back to work the next day if you have a sedentary job, we recommend setting aside 5-7 days for healing. Hair restoration has a very relaxed recovery period with little to no pain, especially after the first 48 hours. Despite this, you will have to look after your newly transplanted hairs for 2-3 weeks after the treatment. This means avoiding strenuous exercise, excessive sunlight, strong chemicals like chlorine and giving your body the nutrients it needs to recover. You will come into the clinic the day after surgery to ensure you are healing properly, so if your coming to see us from out of town, plan to stay for 2-3 days. If any scabs form around the hairs, they usually disappear within 7-10 days.
How long will it take to see results?
The newly transplanted hairs can take up to 30 days to sprout. After that, they will grow very slowly for 3-6 months and your hair will look very normal during this period. Most patients will see much fuller hair 2-3 months after, but it can take up to 8 months before you have a full head of hair again. Hairs may fall out at this time, but this is completely normal. The follicles are still intact beneath the skin and new hairs will grow from them.
Our Hair Transplant Process
Step 1: Contact Venus Hair Restoration
You can give us a call or fill out the form on our website and we will give you a call to setup your consultation. Before we can schedule your consultation, we ask that you to send us some photos of your scalp via text or email so the doctor can make sure you are a candidate for FUE and we can prepare for your consultation. We will provide you with the angles we need when you call. If you are coming to have a surgery from out of town, we can setup a phone/facetime consultation.
Step 2: Come in for a free consultation
Your experience at Venus Hair Restoration begins with a free consultation at our clinic in Farminton Hills. During this consultation, you will be educated on FUE hair restoration and the unque methods we use to create natural looking results. We dedicate 30-45 minutes to every patient, ensuring you have the time to voice any questions or concerns you may have about the treatment.
Step 3: Book a day for your hair transplant
During your consultation, we will provide you with all the information you need to educate yourself on the treatment and make an informed and confident descision about your hair. You are then free to book your surgery on a day that works for your schedule, whether it be the following week, or 6 months later. We do require a deposit at least 2 weeks prior your treatment in order to secure the date.
Because it is a lengthy treatment, we are not able to perform more than 1 treatment in the same day. If you are a group from out of town, coming to have a hair transplant in Michigan, we will need a full day for each patient.
Step 4: Having the hair transplant
Your hair transplant can take anywhere from 6-8 hours depending on how many hairs you need to reach your goals. This means you will need to take the entire day off work and ensure all resposibilities are set aside for the procedure. You will arrive at our hair transplant Michigan center early in the morning and may not be ready to go home untill 5 or 6 PM depending on your case. You will need to arrange transportation to our clinic and transporation back home. If a friend or loved one would like to stay at the clinic during your treatment and use our complementary Wifi, they are more than welcome to do so.
Step 5: Healing after your hair transplant
The following day, you will retun to our clinic for a post op exam. During this exam we will ensure that all of the grafts are healing properly and none of them have been dislodged. We will give you detailed intructions on how to take care of your hairs in the coming weeks and demonstrate how to safely wash your hair. We are here to make sure that you are comfortable with your treatment and are available every day of the week to answer any questions or concerns you have.
Step 6: Enjoy your full head of hair!
In the coming months, more and more hairs will begin to sprout from the transplanted follicles. Some follicles may remain dormant for up to 6 months. The hair that has been transplanted is your hair and is 100% natural. That means you can comb it, dye it, gel it, and style it in any way you like, just like your regular hair. If your hairs are thin, we reccomend coming in to the clinic for a PRP session about 3-4 months after the treatment. This will provide your new follicles with the nessasary nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy.
