Fixed Price Policy
We are the first center in Hong Kong to advocate a Fixed Price Policy. After consultation the doctor will advise you the minimal number of grafts required for your procedure. We calculate your surgical fee according to this number of grafts. This is all you have to pay for!
What Happens to Extra grafts?
No graft will be wasted - All extra graft will be planted for free.
What Happen with Less Grafts?
If we cannot get the promised number, the difference will be refunded.
You pay for 1,000 grafts. If we get 1,100 grafts, you have the extra 100 for free.
If we only get 900, we refund the cost for 1,000 - 900 = 100 grafts.

On Comparing Prices - Donor Depletion
The Number Game
Those substandard hair transplant centers are unable to perform the more difficult FUT, and can only provide FUE hair transplant. In order to attract customers, their cost-per-graft is set very low. To make up for for this and charge a higher price, they will play the numbers game. An excessive number of hair follicles will be extracted at the shortest time to save the doctor salary. As a result, it leads to a very serious problem: Donor Depletion with a significant reduction in the number of permanent hair follicles in the Safe Donor Zone for future use. At the back of head hair becomes very sparse and covered with unsightly white spots.
The Actual Cost Per Graft
Take as an example hairline restore using FUE in an AGA Class III patient. Center A proposes to transplant 2,800 hairs for repair. The average charge is HKD 15 per hair. With an expected graft survival rate of, 2,520 hairs will finally grow. The actual cost of transplanting each surviving hair in Center A is therefore (2800 x 15) / 2520 = HKD 16.6
Comparing to Center B which only charges HKD 10 per hair with 60% graft survival rate. To achieve the same effect as 2,520 hairs, 2520 / 60% = 4,200 hairs must be extracted. The total cost is 4200 x 10 = HKD 42,000. The actual cost of transplanting each surviving hair in Center A is also 4200 / 2520 = HKD 16.6
As a result, the actual cost of Center A and Center B is the same, but Center B waste you an additional 1,400 precious hair follicles for nothing. Is it worth it?

Most of the fees we charge are spent on training, scientific research, developing new techniques, buying the latest instrument, and maintaining the largest team in hong Kong. Yes, we are not the cheapest, but we are no doubt the Best Value for Money.
How We Estimate Cost ?
Estimating the cost is a complicated factor, and cannot be done just by a phone call or email. The cost depends mainly on the number of grafts required to achieve the expected result. 4 factors must be considered:
1. AREA of bald area to be transplanted
2. DENSITY of graft desired per sq.cm
3. Amount of DONOR HAIR available for transplant
4. Patients' EXPECTATION
During the consultation the patient and doctor need to first agree on where to transplant. Obviously the patient may want to fill up every empty spots. However the following factors must be considered:
• Extent of current hair loss
• Potential and extent of future loss
• Is patient taking medication to prevent further loss
• Budget of the patient
The purpose of hair transplant is to create a visual illusion of not being bald. When there is not enough donor hair or the budget limited, the patiens must decide which area should be transplanted first, the hairline or the crown.
Key Area Transplant
During consultation our doctor may suggest transplanting certain areas to receive the maximum coverage and best visual improvement.
The Basic - Appearance of Fullness
A full head of hair appearance is Maintained until approximately 50% of the original hair volume is lost. Thinning is apparent when light is reflected from the scalp, creating a "see-through". There is a critical density below which no visual impact will be perceived. Those with a limited budget or donor hair should make a compromise on area but not density
Recommended Follicular Unit Density
Different density will be requires to achieve expected result in different ethnic groups.
|Normal||100 / sq.cm
( 200 Hair)
|60 / sq.cm
( 160 Hair)
|90 ⁄ sq.cm
( 170 Hair)
|Minimal||40 /sq.cm||24 /sq.cm||35 /sq.cm|
|Average||45 /sq.cm||35 /sq.cm||45 /sq.cm|
|Dense Packing||55 /sq.cm||45 /sq.cm||55 /sq.cm|
3. DONOR HAIR AVAILABILITY
The following factors of donor hair must be considered when planning number of grafts:
• Diameter of hair shaft
• Color contrast between hair and scalp
• Straight hair, wavy hair, or curly hair
• Laxity at the Donor Area
• Previous hair transplant, especially FUE
• Density and Quality of donor hair
• Size of Safe Donor Area, and amount of available donor hair for the life-time
During consultation, the doctor will determine the final cost according to:
• Your expectation - average vs. high density
• Level of the re-designed hairline
• Hairline Restore vs. Add-on Density
• The Recipient Area - shaved or not shaved
