Factors that Affect Hair Replacement Cost

There are many factors that affect hair replacement cost at the National Hair Institute. Both men and women lose hair on different levels and as a result they will need different hair replacements. Hair replacement cost will be different for each person as there will be differing amounts of hair that needs replacing.

The National Hair Institute has hair transplant procedures that are guaranteed to provide a permanent solution to hair loss. Whether you have slight hair loss or extreme balding, the National Hair Institute will work out a suitable procedure and hair replacement cost.

Before the hair replacement cost is decided, patients undergo a hair loss assessment from our qualified counsellor. During the assessment, the counsellor will carefully go through each option and help determine which hair transplant procedure is suited to your requirements.

The National Hair Institute Consultation

Once you have visited the National Hair Institute for your hair loss concerns, we will take the time to sit down with you and discuss an overall solution. The consultation process is more than just working out the hair replacement cost, it is designed so you can obtain detailed information and walk away with informed knowledge.

Current Hair Loss Situation

During the consultation we will assess your current hair loss and determine the severity on the hair loss scales. Men’s hair loss is determined by the Norwood Scale whereas women’s hair loss is determined by the Ludwig scale.

Assessment of Donor Region

The maximum amount of hair that can be obtained out of one FUG procedure is determined by the level of density, flexibility and length of a patient’s donor region (back and sides of the scalp.

Donor Density

The National Hair Institute will determine the number of follicular units growing per square cm in the donor region. Typical donor density regions are:

  • Below Average density                45-59 per cm²
  • Medium density (most common)   60-74 per cm²
  • High density                                 75-90 per cm²

Donor Flexibility

The term donor flexibility is defined as the ability to move the skin located within a patient’s donor region in different directions. The easier and further that the skin can be moved, the more hair that can be obtained by the hair transplant surgeon on the day.

Donor Length

The National Hair Institute will measure the length of your donor region to determine the maximum number of follicular unit grafts that can be obtained from one procedure. This will help to create the hair replacement cost, as it is based on the follicular unit grafts inserted.

Hair Characteristics

The characteristics of your hair will also affect the hair replacement cost and will be discussed during the consultation. The National Hair Institute will work out your hair type, colour and shaft diameter. After the transplant, you will be free to use any hair accessories that you were used to including the best hair curling wands.

Maximum Follicular Unit Grafts

After assessment of the donor region and above factors, the maximum number of follicular unit grafts can be obtained. An estimate of hair replacement cost and time can then be given.

Surgical Plan

You will have the opportunity to indicate which hair replacement option you desire. We will also assess which hair replacement will bets suit your hair loss.

After the consultation has taken place, the National Hair Institute will also send a personal assessment to ensure you have all the information to make a decision you’re comfortable with.

Factors That Affect Pricing

Hair replacement cost for each patient at the National Hair Institute will be based on the number of grafts performed during the procedure, the patient’s hair loss history and expectations of hair re-growth. The National Hair Institute understands that not everyone loses the same amount of hair, which is why we tailor our hair transplants to individual circumstances.

Hair replacement cost will be determined by the doctor or client counsellor during the consultation stage.  Hair replacement cost is dependent on the size and area of balding to be treated, the density of hair hoped to be achieved, the density of hair in the donor areas and the elasticity of the skin.

Not everyone has the same hair loss problems or hair and skin type, which is why it is important to distinguish the hair replacement cost according to the individual. During the consultation, mentioned above, patients will be informed of the number of grafts that need to be removed for the procedure to be a success. You will also be told the hair replacement cost depending on your hair loss severity.

A hair replacement can cost anywhere between $10,000 to $30,000. Hair transplants for men will be slightly more expensive than women’s as the balding is usually more sever. Hair replacement cost varies from person to person and the prices listed above shouldn’t be used to estimate the hair replacement cost at the National Hair Institute. The hair transplant cost might be dramatically less depending on the treatment you require and what we can help you obtain.

When thinking about hair replacement cost, you should keep in mind what you’re really searching for is value for money. Hair replacements that provide quick solutions may cost less, but will not provide the satisfying results a hair transplant can offer. The hair replacement cost may seem higher at first, but will offer viable results in the long run.

So when considering your hair replacement cost, keep in mind you only have one opportunity to get it right the first time.

Air Mattress Bed for Back pain

Have you considered buying an air mattress bed for your aching back? Did you come here expecting enthusiastic support for your decision? Are you expecting me to tell you, definitively, that a particular style of air mattress such as the Sleep Number bed is the right solution for precisely your problem? Well, hang on to your hat because you won’t get that here.

Confused?

A site about air mattress beds not supporting them as a cure for back pain? Well, I’m being a bit tricky. CAN air mattresses help with back pain? Sure. WILL they ALWAYS? No. That’s the rub. It isn’t a matter of whether or not I feel they can offer a solution (one very well might), it’s that I’m not going to commit my integrity (or your money) to a solution that might not be the right one for you.

Any mattress that, with absolute conviction, sells itself as a definite cure for back pain is suckering its consumers out of their hard earned dollars. The truth is that a flat board with a half inch of foam on it might be the right cure for you.

I simply have no way of knowing, and neither do air mattress bed manufacturers, what the right requirements are for you specifically. What they can tell you with reasonable honesty is how independent testing has rated their beds relative to other styles and in that regard, air mattress beds do fairly well.

Air mattress beds such as the Sleep Number bed often are a fantastic solution for back pain relief. The customizable nature of adjustable air mattresses alone is a major factor behind that. My own back problems were alleviated after switching mattresses.

But, I don’t attribute my success to any of the best air mattress beds I have used so much as an ancient Chinese secret I’ll reveal later. In some cases, however, a memory-foam mattress may be the better solution for your back problems. In others, a particular brand of innerspring mattress is the right solution. What’s the common theme here? No one brand or style of mattress is going to be the universal solution for all people.

If you do suffer from chronic back pain you can begin your search for the right mattress for you by applying some of the knowledge you’ve hopefully learned here.

Consult with your physician and if he/she is honest, you’ll receive some simple wisdom such as “some people report improvement from sleeping on air mattresses” or “your condition might be best served by a very firm mattress.” That information being about as useful as what I’ve offered so far in this post, let’s get to the real best solution for you.

The best thing for your back is sleeping on a mattress that affords good back support, promotes healthy curvature of the spine and is very comfortable. If you can find all three in a single mattress, you’ve probably found the mattress that will help you with your back pain. The last item, comfort, is very important, though. The bottom line is that no amount of ergonomic engineering will matter to you if you can’t get comfortable enough to sleep well.

The hard part here is that finding the right mattress to alleviate back pain isn’t like finding which candy bar you like best. Mattresses are expensive.

In finding a mattress that’s good for your back, take several minutes to test each model in the store. This will give you at least a glimpse into what you can expect when you get the mattress home. More importantly, though, ensure that your purchase comes with a generous satisfaction guarantee and return policy.

You won’t know until you’ve invested a week or two sleeping on your new mattress if it is the right one for you. Select Comfort offered a one month trial period at one point (and may still) on their Sleep Number bed which, to me, was a major selling point. Try to find something similar in your purchase.

So, the answer to your question is that, yes, air mattress beds of varying styles can do wonders for back pain relief but there are no guarantees. Your best bet is to test a variety of mattresses and ensure you are protected should you later determine the mattress is not right for you.

Oh, and that ancient Chinese secret for curing back pain? Stop carrying your wallet in your back pocket. I did, found relief in weeks and I haven’t had back problems in the 5 years since.
