Like every other service around the world, hair transplant can range from low price to very high price. In Thailand, the hair transplant procedure could be as cheap as 20 THB per graft or as high as 160 THB per graft. The factor for this big range of price could be various things; the price of the staff, which device they use, market positioning, their claims, or even the doctor’s certificate.
The thing to note is no business can have expenses higher than income, or else, the company will go bankrupt. Some places can bring their price down very low by lowering their expenses to make their service seems more attractive to their customers. The most common thing businesses do to lower the price is by using cheaper devices, hiring cheaper staff, or even non-certified or unskilled doctors.
With the low prices, the customer might have to aware that this industry also has, so-called, “Black Market” operated by doctors or technicians with no or little training. This can result in a bad and unnatural outcome that will stay with you and can be visible forever. Hair transplant work is difficult to be fixed once it is done. It is better if it is done right on the first go.
Not only this will affect the outcome, but it could also affect your safety as well as your well-being. Incorrect performance can lead to infection or even death.
At another end of the spectrum, some businesses raise the price unreasonably high that most people cannot afford. They increase the price with a claim that their staff/surgeon is certified or be a member of a certain association. However, a pile of certificates doesn’t always mean they will deliver a great result. It will come down to whose work you like best and which price is affordable for you. This can be done by doing a lot of research on each surgeon’s work and pick which one is both nice, natural, AND affordable.
The cost of a hair transplant at Hairtran Clinic is affordable for most people, including local Thai people. It is not only affordable, but it also delivers a good and natural result. We also guarantee that we will do a free touch up for our customers if the result doesn’t go as we planned.
One thing to take away from this blog is cheaper doesn’t always mean it is a better choice and more expensive doesn’t mean is it going to be better as well. The price should be a second priority whereas the result of what you will get has to come first. Of course, the hair will grow, that is the standard of all hair transplant centers, but not all surgeons can make it grows out and give a natural look.
