Other Medical Options for Hair Loss:
Propecia pills and Rogaine topical lotion are medical options

Hair Transplant Costs:
Patients are charged by the session depending on the size of
area to be treated and the amount of work necessary to create the desired
result. Fees typically range from $6,000 to $7,000 per session. Most patients
can achieve a substantial improvement in as few as one session. Some patients
may need two or three sessions, depending on the size of the bald or thinning
area, the patient’s hair characteristics, and the desired density. Sessions are
usually spaced one year apart to allow the transplanted hair time to grow.
