If you are just starting your research into hair restoration services, and you haven’t really looked that much into the industry, then you might be in for a rather unpleasant surprise when it comes to the price tag. Hair restoration procedures are actual surgeries that require skilled doctors and surgeons to perform. Coupled with the expense of the medical assistants that help the surgeon, anesthesia, and the cost of supplies, a hair transplant surgery can cost just as much as any other kind of minor surgery. Also, your health insurance is not likely to cover the procedure because it’s classified as a cosmetic procedure.
Locating an Affordable LA Hair Institute
Finding an affordable LA hair institute can be quite a challenge. If you are not even sure what kind of hair restoration procedure you need or want, then then it becomes even more difficult. Another factor to consider is that the term “affordable” means something different to everybody. If you make six figures, then affordable becomes a much looser term than someone who is living paycheck to paycheck and can barely afford gas.
Anybody who lives, works, or even plays in Redondo Beach will know that the area does not skimp on the lavish lifestyle that is iconic Southern California. The Movoto By Ojo Blog even ranks Redondo Beach as #4 in the nation’s richest cities, and even states “Residents of this extremely affluent seaside community in California, on the other hand, can basically roll out of bed and onto their yachts in the morning (if they don’t just live on them already, that is).”
Needless to say, the term “affordable” means something entirely different to a resident of Redondo Beach living on a yacht than it does to someone living in the suburbs in a two-bedroom apartment. This is why here at Best Hair LA we have revolutionized the hair transplant pricing structure so that we are, everyone’s affordable LA hair institute. We set our prices based on what is fair to everyone, no matter where they live, and not on how much money the residents of the community have in their bank accounts.
Hair Transplant Prices Depending on Location
Even if you don’t know what the term “sticker shock” means, chances are you have experienced it before regardless. Sticker shock is when you make that first big trip out of your hometown to some big tourist trap and go and buy your first cocktail at that trendy bar or restaurant. It’s a decent enough drink, although you have had better. Then comes the check and you realize that the drink costs more than a nice steak dinner back home. I had that happen on Valentine’s day this year. Man, was I shocked!
You Don’t Have to Pay Out the A$$!
It’s commonplace for nannies in Manhattan to make upwards of $200,000 per year. Yup, you read that right. There are skilled doctors in some parts of the U.S. bringing in that much money or less. I’m quite sure the Manhattan nannies are really good at their jobs, maybe even Mary Poppins good, but that is not why they make so much money. The number one reason those nannies are raking in the cash is simple. Rich people can afford to pay them that much. This is called the Nanny Effect.
Here is the thing, nannies in Manhattan can’t very well move to Ohio and expect to make that much or even close. That $200,000 per year is very Manhattan-specific because of all the money in Manhattan itself. The same thing goes for hair transplant surgeries. A hair transplant surgery in Ohio is very likely more affordable than the surgeon working out of the Manhattan high rise. This is why there is such a large number of people who decide to travel overseas for their hair transplant procedures. Turkey, Thailand, Mexico, and many other countries have thriving hair transplant industries, and sometimes it is more affordable to buy a plane ticket and pay for a hotel at these places than it is to just drive down the street for your hair transplant.
The reason other countries can charge so much less for the very same hair transplant surgery is mostly due to that country’s economy. When a gallon of milk only costs right around 10 US cents in Thailand, then a hair transplant that costs $6,000 in the US should see just about the same decrease in price.
What to Expect at an Affordable LA Hair Institute
When you have finally found that affordable LA hair institute that doesn’t charge you an outrageous price per graft of hair, or a price tag that is solely based on the surgeon’s ego, what then? Also, how can you be sure that you have picked the right clinic? There are many different ways to make sure that you haven’t been tricked into paying for the “area” you are getting your transplant done, instead of the quality of the procedure itself.
Most reputable clinics will offer you a free consultation with the doctor. If you get this consultation, and the person that is meeting with you is not a doctor, and is in fact a salesperson, that is a good sign that you are not in the right place. There are hair clinics that focus more on their sales pitch and less on the quality of their procedures, and this should be a large red flag for you to watch out for.
If Other LA Hair Institutes Won’t Give You a Solid Quote, Run!
Try to avoid hair restoration clinics that refuse to give you a solid price per graft. Sure, every hair restoration procedure will be different. There are a lot of factors that can go into the overall price tag, like the progression of baldness, the quality of hair at the specified donor area, and what kind of hair transplant that you are looking into. For example, oftentimes an FUE hair transplant surgery will cost more than a FUT procedure. This is because an FUE surgery takes much longer to perform than a FUT, but the results tend to be higher quality and there is much less post-procedure discomfort.
When you find yourself a quality LA hair institute you will get a consultation with an actual doctor who will give a thorough examination and discuss your hair restoration needs and expectations with you in detail. Then at the end of the meeting, the doctor will give you a solid set-in-stone cost for the procedure and not some mathematical mumbo jumbo.
Best Hair LA Hair Institute is the Most Affordable Around
It doesn’t matter if you live in Redondo Beach, San Diego, or anywhere in Southern California. Making the trip to Best Hair Transplant LA will definitely be in your best interest. We don’t let the “nanny effect” influence our prices and we have set the most competitive price range for FUE and FUT hair transplants in the area. We have developed a business plan that cuts our costs in all of the right areas so that we can keep our overhead low while still providing the best, top-of-the-line hair transplant procedures available in all of California.
If you are ready to jump on the overseas bandwagon and are just about to buy your plane ticket to Thailand or Turkey for your hair transplant, then we suggest you at least call us first. Plane tickets are expensive and even if the lodging in your overseas destitution is nice and cheap, you will still have to consider some of the hurdles you will have to overcome for an overseas hair transplant.
The first and most important issue you may encounter on your trip is the language barrier. Not everyone speaks English overseas. In fact, the actual number of English-speaking residents of some of the popular hair transplant “capitols” can be pretty low, even at hair restoration clinics. Then, if you factor in the cost and hassle of getting a passport and the cost of food and other expenses, it would be worth at least a call to our office before you book that trip.
