While traditional hair transplant surgery has been around for many years, innovative techniques have now made the hair restoration procedure less invasive and more effective. Even in terms of the monetary amount, advanced techniques such as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) for hair transplant and supplementary therapies such as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) are more affordable.
MBody is a leading practice for plastic surgery as well as non-surgical procedures, which offers cutting edge hair restoration solutions such as FUE and LLLT. During the initial consultation, the plastic surgeon will explain various aspects of the procedure, including its estimated costs.
MBody provides hair transplant procedures to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding locations.
Traditional hair transplantation techniques are not only more complex and suffer from various limitations, but they are also relatively more expensive. FUE and LLLT techniques, on the other hand, are more efficient as well as more cost-effective. Whether performed individually or in conjunction with each other, the cost of FUE and LLLT may be lower than that of traditional hair transplant surgery in many cases.
FUE and LLLT procedures are not only minimally invasive, but they also involve minimal downtime. For working patients, it would mean fewer days off from work, which could have cost saving implications. MBody, led by board certified plastic surgeons, receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas.
The cost of hair transplant procedures such as FUE can vary from one practice to another, and in some cases, may even vary from one patient to another at the same practice. Geographical location of the practice will play an important role. Cost of living in prime urban areas and major cities is usually higher than in smaller towns or interior locations. This impacts the average cost of most types of products and services, including hair restoration.
The skills and experience of the treatment provider, the quality standards and advanced equipment provided at a practice, and whether the procedure is performed under the guidance and supervision of a highly trained surgeon are aspects that will affect the costs. It involves costs to offer personalized care and maintain best practices, but it is worth every dollar spent in the end at a marvelous facility.
To receive advanced aesthetic procedures such as hair transplantation, it is imperative to choose a qualified and experienced provider. The quality standards and safety protocols observed at the practice should be second to none.
Insurance and Financing
FUE and LLLT hair restoration procedures are considered elective by the insurance providers. Therefore, the patient’s health plan will most likely not cover the costs of these services. However, the upfront costs should not prevent a patient from fulfilling their aesthetic needs.
Patients may consider getting the procedure financed through professional medical care financing companies. These companies offer quick loan approvals, low interest rates, and easy monthly installments.
