How Much Is Hair Restoration in Florida?

According to the health care financing company CareCredit®, the average hair restoration surgery cost is between $5,000 and $9,500 in Florida. This figure, however, is an approximation and may not reflect the specifics of your procedure. You can also look into financing options to see if paying over time is better for your budget.

What Affects the Cost of a Hair Restoration Procedure?

Hair restoration surgery costs vary based on several factors, including:

Hair Restoration Technique

The two main techniques for restoring fullness to the scalp are follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE).

FUT involves removing a strip of tissue from the donor area—usually from the hair at the base of the skull—and moving it to the hairline. In comparison, FUE extracts individual hair follicles directly from the scalp and targets areas that could use fullness.

FUE typically costs more than FUT due to its meticulous extraction process and the advanced technology and skill involved. However, FUE’s minimal scarring and faster recovery period are often worth the extra expense for many patients. You can learn more about these two techniques in our related blog post.

Degree of Hair Loss

The extent of your hair loss directly affects the complexity of the procedure and, consequently, the cost. Those with significant balding, for example, may require multiple sessions to achieve their desired results. More sessions also mean greater expenses.

Provider Location

Your provider’s location also affects the total cost. Those in metropolitan areas or areas with a higher cost of living may charge more for their services.

Provider Expertise

Another important factor is the surgeon’s expertise. An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon with a track record for safe procedures and attractive, natural-looking results can command higher prices than a less established provider.

Male vs. Female Hair Restoration Cost: Is There a Difference?

Another significant cost factor is the patient’s gender. Male pattern baldness requires a different approach than the thinning and diffuse hair loss associated with female patients. Typically, male hair restoration costs will be higher than female hair restoration costs due to the need for more extensive coverage.

However, female patients may need to factor in additional medical expenses to address underlying hormonal issues, as hormonal imbalances are a common contributor to female hair loss. A skilled plastic surgeon will work with you to explore your treatment options (regardless of gender) during your consultation.
