As all consultations and surgery take place at our purpose built facility in Dublin, Ireland, we quote in euros.
The cost of an initial consultation with one of HRBR’s qualified hair restoration doctors is €250. This is up to an hour-long meeting which uses macrophotography and analysis to gain an extensive picture of a patient’s hair loss status. The cost allows for a thorough medical assessment, in-depth discussion, and summary report so that the optimal hair loss solution for each individual patient can be recommended.
For annual review consultations with our doctors, the charge is €100.
For patients that proceed with a hair transplant procedure at HRBR there is no charge for any post-operative clinic appointments.
Medical Treatment Costs
As a medical treatment for hair loss, Finasteride is available in the UK under the generic brand names of Fintex, Fintrid, Finocar, Proscar, and Profal (5mg). It can be purchased with a prescription from most pharmacies and costs in the region of £60 and £150 per annum.
The other proven hair loss treatment of Regaine (Minoxidil) costs approximately £40 per month and is widely available over-the-counter in pharmacies.
Hair Transplant Surgery Cost
There is no such thing as a low-cost method of providing a permanent solution to hair loss by surgical means. Having an inferior quality hair transplant carried out can have serious, negative and long-term consequences. As one patient put it: “You never remember the price of a good job and you never forget the price of a bad one”.
A high quality hair transplant costs a considerable amount of money to perform because it is a highly specialised, labour intensive process requiring a great deal of precision, patience, and concentration. The way in which HRBR carries out their hair transplant procedures necessitates a large team of expertly trained and skilled medical staff and technicians, who are regularly rotated in order to ensure that they maintain exceptionally high standards of work and that the precious donor grafts are protected and viable. Therefore, if cost is the main factor influencing the decision about whether or not to proceed with hair transplantation, we would advise patients against surgery but rather they consider the medical treatments if appropriate.
The cost per transplanted follicular unit graft is €10, whether the FUT or FUE technique is used.
While every effort is made to estimate the numbers of follicular units as accurately as possible in advance of surgery, the actual number of follicles transplanted may be slightly higher or lower than these estimates due to the density of follicular units varying all over the scalp. A careful audit is kept during surgery and only the actual number of follicular units transplanted will be charged for (at the rate of €10 each). A breakdown of charges and an invoice for surgery fees will be supplied after the procedure.
Once a patient has undergone a surgical procedure with HRBR all subsequent clinic visits are included in the cost of this surgery, so there are no hidden extra charges or ongoing costs.
Please note the cost per transplanted graft above does not relate to the transplant of scars, eyebrows and repair work. These patients will be quoted on a case by case basis and a quote will be provided at a consultation with the consultant surgeons.
A booking deposit of €4,000 is required to secure a suitable surgery date for the hair transplant. All surgery dates are provisional until secured by payment in full of this booking deposit. Provisional bookings for surgery may be held for up to one week. Any bookings which are not confirmed one week after the date of the deposit invoice will be cancelled automatically.
In the event you must cancel your surgery, the booking deposit is non-refundable unless another patient accepts the cancellation time in theatre. For this reason, if you have to reschedule or cancel your surgery, please notify our office as soon as possible.
All fees are payable on the day of surgery and all accounts must be settled in full within a week of surgery.
