Intravenous (IV) sedation or local anesthesia in both the donor and the recipient areas may be used for hair transplantation.
Sedation or anesthesia will keep the patient comfortable during the procedure. After treatment, any discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication.
The length of the procedure will depend on the technique used, the area being treated, and the size of the treatment area. FUE is a longer procedure because several thousand small incisions are made for the hair removal from the donor site, while FUT uses a single, long incision to remove a strip of hair.
Healing time with FUE is generally five to seven days. FUT recovery is usually longer because the long, thin incision takes more time to heal.
After treatment, the hairs transplanted into the treatment area will permanently grow just like your natural hair.
Pricing varies depending on the extent of the treatment or surgery. You can see a list of the approximate prices of each procedure on our current fee schedule. Dr. Agullo charges a consultation fee of $100, which is applied to the cost of your treatment. Generally speaking, cosmetic plastic surgery is considered “elective” and is not covered by most insurance plans. The prices listed on our fee schedule represent the minimum cost of the procedures, including anesthesia and surgical facility fees, medical tests, garments, and recovery products. The cost of prescription medications, however, is not included. The exact price of each procedure can only be determined after a thorough consultation. All fees must be paid in full prior to the scheduled treatment.
