The average cost for hair transplant in Malaysia is about USD 2.5 per graft, i.e. if you are going for 1000 grafts, it will cost you USD 2.5 x 1000 = USD 2,500.

Editor's Note:

Please take note that there is a difference between 'cost per graft' and 'cost per hair'. One graft may have 2 - 3 hairs. Some clinics may quote you on a per hair basis. Beware of the difference.

Another important point is that everybody seems to be comparing prices on 'cost per graft'. However, much more important than the price of each graft, is the actual survival rate of the grafts implanted. Do enquire about the 'success rate'.

Your hair grafts are a finite resource. You only have a certain number on the back and sides of your head, and any grafts that don’t survive are essentially gone.

Hair Transplant Surgery Singapore Price

The average cost for hair transplant in Singapore is about USD 3.7 per graft depending on the following factors:
  • Consultation and hair assessment: USD 37
  • Hair transplant surgery: depends on price per graft (average USD 3.7/graft) and the total number of grafts (average 2000 grafts for scalp)
  • Recovery medications: USD 40 - 50 depending on types of medications, painkillers needed
  • Medical review (after transplant surgery): USD 40/ session
Do note that some might require a second hair transplant for better results if there is a large area of baldness.

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Hair Transplant Singapore

FUE hair transplant, or follicular unit extraction hair transplant, is a minimally invasive method used to harvest and transplant hair. Although the word 'transplant' normally refers to major hospital procedures, hair transplant is normally performed as an out-patient procedure. The treatment removes individual follicular units directly from your scalp, which are then replanted into the required site of the scalp. At the moment, this is one of the most popular technique for hair transplant.

Based on the average number of 2000 hair grafts and the average price per graft of $3.7 USD.

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) Hair Transplant

The price of FUT hair transplant surgery in Singapore ranges from USD 6,000 to USD 7,000.
Compared to FUE hair transplant, FUT is a higher risk procedure that requires more tedious steps.

The FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) procedure involves cutting a strip of the patient’s scalp off, before proceeding to harvest the individual hair grafts before transplant.

The bare area is usually then sewn up together to prevent the bald patch from being seen.

Hair Transplant Thailand Cost

Cost of Hair transplant in Thailand USD 2.25 per graft. Cost ranges from 3000 USD to 7000 USD in comparison to UK and USA the same procedure costs about 7,000 USD- 15,000 USD.

Another popular hair transplant destination often compared to Thailand is Turkey. However, the prices of hair transplants in Turkey and Thailand are approximately similar.
