What is the cost of a Hair Transplant in Delhi and Gurgaon?
Hair loss is very common nowadays, and various solutions are available in the market to address it. However, none of them can offer permanent and natural results except hair transplant treatment. A hair transplant is a surgical treatment performed by trained and certified doctors while following strict medical protocols. The hair transplant procedure can be performed by various techniques available in the market but the most advanced, safest and premium hair transplant technique is DHITM – Direct hair implantation technique. In this technique, the hair from the donor area or the back side of the scalp is extracted and then implanted in the required bald area. At DHI clinics the complete hair transplant procedure is performed by highly trained surgeons only, and no assistant or nurse touches the patient scalp. Though it is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, it can pose a significant risk of infection and complications when performed by untrained doctors or technicians.
Delhi and Gurgaon are among the most opted places to undergo hair transplant treatment. Many clinics offer hair transplant services in both cities and the cost differs in each location. Some of them offer surgery at unbelievably cheap prices. Additionally, most searches about hair transplants on Google are affordable or cheap hair transplant treatments or clinics. However, by selecting a cheap hair transplant, people may play with their safety and final look too.
A hair transplant is a medical procedure and should be performed by experienced doctors who are trained to perform a hair transplant while concentrating on safety and hygiene. At DHI clinics, the entire procedure, end to end, is performed by qualified surgeons who have been extensively trained in the science & art of hair transplants and have gained tremendous experience even before touching their first hair transplant patient independently. If you are suffering from any kind of hair loss symptoms, consult the DHI Delhi or Gurgaon clinic to get a treatment estimation plan for the hair transplant procedure.
How much does a hair transplant cost?
Hair Transplant cost is an important factor when selecting a clinic. However, it is of no worth if you don’t get the desired results at clinics that cost less. Some clinics cut down the cost of hair transplants by neglecting the safety and hygiene protocols. So, before undergoing a hair transplant, you should not blindly trust any clinic offering cheap rates, but rather know the factors defining hair transplant costs in Delhi and Gurgaon.
The number and viability of the grafts: Do you count your transplanted or implanted hair after the hair transplant procedure? The answer to this question is Yes, only in the DHITM clinics because, in DHITM protocols, we provide complete transparency by giving the exact count of hair in a hair tray picture and proving it later by showing the transplanted area via our density card. To top it off, we maintain the grafts at optimal temperature and mode to get the best graft survivability, up to 97% and 50% industry average. A hair transplant involves many more crucial factors than just extracting and implanting to a specific area. How your graft is extracted and taken care of before it is implanted is a deciding factor for graft survivability.
The most significant factor that defines the cost of a hair transplant is the number of grafts or hair to be transplanted or implanted during the procedure. It depends on the area to be treated and the hair required to provide the maximum density and coverage of the bald area. Therefore, it’s not wrong to say that the degree of baldness defines the cost of a hair transplant. You may be surprised to know that the industry average for graft survival is only 50%, as against the DHI techniques verified more than 90%. Most clinics offering cheaper rates do not implant the number of hairs that they promised, and it is impossible to verify this. These clinics typically store the extracted hair in a heap which makes it impossible for you to count the number of hairs, as opposed to DHI where every single graft is neatly placed in a tray and the number of grafts can be mathematically verified.
At DHI, a customized plan for each candidate is designed based on their requirement. Therefore, the cost of transplant for each candidate differs.
Hair Transplant technique: Many clinics use outdated hair transplant methods that don’t offer satisfactory results. Some common techniques used are FUT and FUE at other clinics. The Direct Hair Implantation (DHITM) technique is the most advanced technique in the field of Hair Transplant, it has been designed keeping in mind the drawbacks of FUT and FUE. DHI technique gives the best result and 100% natural looks of transplanted hair with maximum density.
Location and experience of the clinic: If you are searching for a clinic in Gurgaon or Delhi, remember that its location and experience will impact the cost. A clinic located in a posh area will cost more as it will offer better treatment and advanced facilities. The clinic is fully equipped and follows all the safety and hygiene protocols which is also an additional factor in the hair transplant cost.
Qualified surgeons and trained staff: Hair transplant, the surgical treatment for hair loss, must be performed by qualified surgeons. They will offer better quality services. Due to this reason, the cost of some clinics and treatments is higher.
DHI surgeons have in-depth knowledge of performing hair transplants. They focus on the candidate’s safety and the treatment quality. All DHI clinics follow strict safety protocols accredited by UK CQC and ISO. Many candidates ask about the cost of hair transplants over the phone or online. However, as we define the cost depending on the number of grafts, the time required to perform the session, the number of sessions, the required density, and more, it is impossible to give an accurate estimate without the diagnosis. To know the exact cost of a hair transplant, DHI surgeons suggest visiting the nearest DHI clinic in Delhi or Gurgaon.
How do DHI Clinics calculate the cost of hair transplants?
DHI India follows a precise hair diagnosis process to evaluate the treatment plan for hair transplants procedure. Here, the total number of grafts or hair required for the best result is analysed. The area to be treated and hair available in the donor area is also evaluated. DHI doctors consider the health problem and desired density in mind. In case of any complication, they offer the best suggestions or solutions. Once everything looks fine to them, they proceed with further diagnosis. During this process, the estimated cost of a hair transplant is told to the candidate.
At DHI, 40% of hair transplant surgeries performed are repair cases on people who chose hair transplant surgery at a cheap clinic or from untrained surgeons. Cheap procedures can never offer natural results and will leave lifetime scars. We are delighted to help them with the best results. The survival rate of implanted hair is more than 90% at DHI, whereas most cheap clinics have a graft survival rate of around 50%.

Should you decide on the hair transplant clinic/surgeon only on the cost?
The Hair transplant is a surgical procedure and therefore you must research very carefully and understand all the pros and cons of your choices before you decide. Please see below, the obvious questions you must ask before choosing a hair transplant clinic or surgeon.
Please read this carefully as it involves your safety, look & emotional well-being.
Q1. Who will perform the procedure?
In most clinics, procedures are performed by technicians who may or may not have any medical training. The doctor who books your session mostly acts as a salesman and would be present in the procedure room only for a few minutes to give you the impression that procedures are being performed by him, or under his supervision. The bigger the doctor, the more you face this problem, as senior doctors don’t like to do laborious procedures.
At DHI, the entire procedure, end to end, is performed by qualified surgeons who have been extensively trained in the science & art of hair transplants and have gained tremendous experience even before touching their first hair transplant patient independently.
Q2. What safety and Quality Assurance protocols are followed by the clinics?
A hair transplant is a virtually risk-free procedure as it is minimally invasive. However, due to old-fashioned techniques followed by some clinics and the absence of any medical/safety protocols in writing, even this relatively harmless procedure can become dangerous. The doctors and assistances in many clinics are not properly trained on the use of local anaesthesia, durations of procedure, managing contraindications, and all this can be risky at times for the patients.
Every clinic of DHI follows very strict safety and medical protocols as per standard operating procedures running into hundreds of pages. These SOPs are accredited by UK’s Care Quality Commission which sets the patient safety standards in London. At DHI, every procedure goes through a quality assurance check by Medical Director.
In most clinics, the instruments for hair transplants are reused after sterilization. This creates uncertainty about the sterile nature of the instruments since you are dependent on the perfection of the sterilization process. This can lead to complications including serious infections. At DHI all the instruments (excluding tools) are single-use only.
Q3. Will I get what I paid for? Will I get guaranteed natural results with the number of hairs promised?
You may be surprised to know that the industry average for graft survival is only 50%, as against the DHI techniques verified 90% (10% of hairs are always in the anagen phase). There are several reasons for this. Most clinics do not implant the number of hairs that they promised, and it is impossible to verify this. The clinic typically stores the extracted hair in a heap as shown in the picture below which makes it impossible for you to count the number of hairs, as opposed to DHI where every single graft is neatly placed in a tray and the number of grafts can be mathematically verified. Please see the picture below.
The extracted hair needs to be properly hydrated with a special solution when they are out of the body, for its survival. Since the extracted grafts are kept in a heap by other clinics most of these grafts are not hydrated properly and therefore do not survive even before they are implanted. At DHI each graft is laid separately in a tray and properly hydrated. Keeping the grafts in a heap makes it impossible to plan a proper aesthetic distribution of grafts, leading to unnatural results.
The implantations in almost all the clinics are done by using the old slit & insert method which is a two-step procedure and the surgeon does not have control over the angle, depth, and direction of the implanted hairs. At DHI we follow a one-step direct implantation technique with DHI’s implanters, which allows perfect control of the angle, depth, and direction of implanted hairs giving completely natural and beautiful results every single time. DHI holds patents in the US and European Union for implanter design and Direct Implantation Techniques.
While thinking of the cost please consider the impact of 50% v/s 100% growth. Even if you pay half at other clinics, the ultimate cost to you is much higher for a sub-standard service and result.
Q4. Is the procedure painless? How fast can I get back to work?
You can get back to work almost the same day after the DHI hair transplant, provided there is no strenuous physical activity involved. Please see below typical pictures of extraction and implantation immediately after the DHI procedure.
At other clinics, even though they follow the FUE technique for extraction, unfortunately, the typical result looks like this, and recovery can take days.
Please consider whether is it worth it to compromise your safety and result in some financial consideration. A Hair Transplant doesn’t come at a small cost; there are no two ways. If you want to invest in hair transplants in Gurgaon and Delhi, cost should not be the first thing to consider. it’s always better to consider all the factors mentioned above and book a consultation before deciding on any clinic. It will allow you to understand more about the clinic’s infrastructure, hygiene & safety protocols, and surgeon’s experience. Always remember, since a hair transplant is a one-time investment and safety is involved, choosing a clinic with the best surgeons and services would be the ideal deal.
