The female hair transplant cost in Boston will depend largely on your needs and goals for treatment. Fortunately, women have a variety of options available to them when it comes to their hair loss, and hair transplants could be the answer. Women in the Boston area who are looking to rebuild their confidence can find success in these trusted, safe, and effective techniques.

Female hair transplant cost in Boston varies from patient to patient and will depend on several factors, including the method chosen, the complexity of the restoration, and the experience of the surgical team.

Because Massachusetts insurance plans do not cover the full cost of hair transplantation, patients will have to pay out of pocket for these procedures. We understand this is a concern for many of our Massachusetts/Boston patients. That’s why Medi Tresse offers many flexible payment and financing options for our treatments so they are affordable for anyone.

Before we discuss factors that contribute to the female hair transplant cost in Boston, let’s go over some basics.

What is a hair transplant?

Hair transplantation and restoration has been used for decades in the restoration of hair growth in people suffering from hair loss or baldness. This procedure serves to remove individual hair follicles from a donor site (i.e., the back of the head). They transplant them into areas where they are most needed. The transplanted hairs then grow naturally, leading to a fuller head of hair.

How hair transplants are performed has evolved over the years and there are now three different methods available to patients. While people still sometimes use the moniker “plugs” when referring to hair transplants, that outdated method from the 1980s is thankfully no longer used. Modern hair transplants look extremely natural. When performed by a skilled hair transplant surgeon, no one would know you had the procedure done.

More on the FUT and FUE process

The Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), also known as the “strip” method, first came on the scene in the early 1990s and requires the removal of a strip of the scalp from the donor area. That strip is split into smaller grafts of hairs for placement into the recipient area. In the 2000s, a new method called the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method became popular. With the FUE method, grafts are taken individually from the donor area. This proved to be less painful with no linear scarring from the strip removal. However, the donor area has to be completely shaved in order to remove the grafts. Unfortunately, shaving the donor area was not an option, so the FUE method was rarely used for women.

Thankfully, the last few years saw one of the best advancements in hair transplants, the No Shave FUE. The No Shave FUE has been getting more and more popular among women who want to restore their hair. This advanced version of the traditional follicular unit extraction (FUE) method doesn’t require shaving of the donor area. It’s ideal for female patients who don’t want to deal with the awkward look of a shaved donor area or the additional pain of the FUT strip method.

Are women good candidates for hair transplants?

It’s important to note that hair loss in women is vastly different than hair loss in men. While most males with hair loss are good candidates for hair transplants, only a small percentage of women make good candidates. That being said, it’s still a viable option for many women. 

Females tend to have more diffuse hair loss (hair loss all over the head). This means the donor area has to be strong enough to support the removal of hairs for the transplant. Women who have specific areas of loss, such as the hair line, the temples, or their part, tend to be better candidates for hair transplants.

But if it turns out you are not determined to be a good candidate for hair transplantation, worry not! There are plenty of other effective non-surgical options out there for you. This includes treatments such as Painless PRP Therapy, Optimal Platelet Concentration Therapy, and Low Level Laser Therapy.

Factors that influence the cost of a female hair transplant in the Boston area

There are many factors to consider when determining the cost of your female hair transplant. Those factors include:

1. Type of hair transplantation method

As we discussed above, the FUT method is an older one that involves more pain than the other methods. The FUE method is newer, but requires shaving of the donor area. The No Shave FUE method is the newest and does not require shaving of the donor area. This makes it a more agreeable option for many women. Each method comes with its own price tag due to the time and resources involved as well as the procedure itself.

2. Number of grafts required

The next factor in determining cost is how many grafts are required to fill the desired area. This will differ with each patient. Only after an exam by your hair transplantation specialist in Boston can we know the number of grafts that will be needed. This in turn helps us determine your cost. Obviously, price increases with the higher number of grafts, and therefore time, needed to complete the procedure.

3. Experience of the Boston hair transplant surgeon

The surgeons we partner with have more than 30 years of combined experience in female hair transplantation. They completed more than 8,000 successful procedures combined.

At our Worcester and Boston locations, we are proud of our partnership with Dr. Thomas Brand and Dr. Mark DiStefano who were the first hair transplant surgeons in New England to offer the revolutionary No Shave FUE.

As you can see, there are a few different factors that will determine your final cost for female hair transplantation in the Boston area. We would be happy to discuss these further with you at your consultation in our local offices.

The only way to know for sure how much a hair transplant costs for women in the Boston area is to speak with your hair specialist at your initial consultation. You will be given a breakdown of costs and financing options available so you can better plan your budget.
