Hair Transplant in London, Should You Have one?

If you read about celebrity hair transplants, you probably consider a hair transplant in London as your best option. Maybe you think that only in Harley Street can you get a hair transplant done by professionals? 

This might be your thought process if you are looking for the best hair transplant UK can offer. You do not have to be limited to a UK hair transplant, however. The costs at Harley Street are way out of the budget of many, as well. 

While Harley Street is a well known centre for medical procedures, a hair transplant in London is not your only option. A prestigious location comes with very high prices. Some of the clinics in Harley Street are a doctor’s permanent location, but did you know that some are rented on a daily or weekly basis? 

Although London hair transplants are something you may be familiar with, as London is famous for many medical procedures, in fact, the leading country for hair transplants is Turkey. Men from all over the world travel there to achieve a full head of hair- so it is worth weighing up the pros and cons of a hair transplant in London versus having the procedure done in Turkey.

Here is the list of Best Hair Surgeons of Turkey: List of hair surgeons in Turkey with 15+ years of experience.

Advantages Of a Hair transplant In London

The obvious advantage of having a hair transplant in London is if you live in the UK, London is your capital city. Most locations have trains or buses to London and driving is relatively straightforward. 

In reality, it can be difficult driving around the UK, and public transport is not always reliable and can be very expensive. 

However, if you have a hair transplant in London, you can be reasonably sure you will get an English speaking doctor and staff. 

There are some very good clinics in London with well qualified and experienced doctors. Harley Street is the most famous location for all things medical, and you could book a procedure with a celebrity doctor, if you can afford their rates of up to £30,000. In general, when it comes to hair transplant London cost, you may have to be prepared for hefty prices. 

You would expect to be able to have a face to face meeting opportunity with the doctor. (In reality, this is quite rare. In most cases, you meet a patient coordinator at best or a pushy sales guy at worst!) 

Easy follow up; if you have a hair transplant in London, then your follow up is simple – you go back to the London clinic. 

Most hair transplant clinics in London offer a payment plan in pounds sterling – though, the terms and conditions vary greatly. It is advisable to read any fineprints thoroughly before signing.

Disadvantages Of a Hair transplant In London

It is very expensive to have a hair transplant in London. 

Examples of some prices 

£6,500 for FUT full head of hair. From £4,500 for 1000 grafts using the FUE technique at one London Clinic 

A Harley Street Clinic’s prices show using FUE that prices start at £3,000 for a small number of grafts and rise to £30,000 for a full head of hair 

Please note – prices are based upon the amount of hair you want to be implanted and the technique that you opt for. (See below for information as to why you should consider the FUE technique). 

Since hair transplant in London is this expensive, clinics prefer to expand the treatment in multiple years. (For example – 2000 grafts this year and another 1500-2000 the following year). This is more a sales strategy. They don’t want to scare the patient with a quote of 20K instead they divide into 2… So you end up paying a lot more and having to wait longer to achieve your desired full head of hair.

If you live outside of London – you may end up paying a great deal in travel costs, and it can take a long time to get across the UK! Hair replacement in London may have seemed your only option, until now. 

In reality, regarding what to expect at a hair transplant clinic, your first meeting is not with the doctor, but a patient consultant whose sole aim is to pitch the procedure- in effect your first meeting is a pushy sales call. And they mostly frighten clients by hardly

Payment plans do exist for hair transplants in London- but they do vary and this is an area you need to research thoroughly before making any commitment. 

Harley Street is a famous name- famous name hair transplant doctors may open clinics in multiple cities- using the power of their name- but they cannot perform the procedures in every clinic. You are better off choosing an experienced doctor and one you know is completing the procedure. 

Many London hair transplant clinics still offer the FUT procedure as it is cheaper- but it is more painful and leaves scars.

Choosing a Hair transplant In Turkey, Not London

If you’ve been thinking about a hair transplant for a while, you’ve probably seen the numbers. However, did you know that the average hair transplant in Turkey, costs an average of £1,699 to £3,199? This is far more economical than a hair transplant in London.

FUE Technique

At GetHair, we only offer the FUE technique because our experienced doctor knows this is the best hair transplant technique – but you don’t have to pay Harley Street prices for this. When researching for the most suitable FUE hair transplant UK can offer you, you will be familiar with what to expect. This technique leaves no scars, is a lot less painful than FUT and gives a better result. (For more information in detail on FUE, go here).
