Westford, USA, Oct. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The demand for hair transplant market is on the rise, and this is especially true for young people. According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, the number of hair transplant procedures performed worldwide has increased by 15% in the past year alone. Today, hair transplants are considered to be a very effective treatment for baldness and hair loss. In fact, the success rate of modern hair transplants is now over 95%.

According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), there are approximately 50% men globally suffering from Androgenetic Alopecia (more commonly known as Male Pattern Baldness). As many as 13% of premenopausal women reportedly have some evidence of androgenetic alopecia.

In the last five years, the global hair transplant market witnessed over 70% growth thank to the growing societal acceptance of hair transplants. Gone are the days when hair transplants were considered to be taboo or unnatural. Today, more and more people are openly discussing their decision to get a hair transplant, and celebrities are even beginning to speak out about their own experiences with the procedure.

In addition, advances in surgical techniques have made hair transplants much more successful than they used to be. In the past, grafts would often not take or would be very noticeable because of their different color or texture. Nowadays, surgeons in the hair transplant market can harvest individual follicles and transplant them with great success. This has made hair transplants a much more viable option for those looking to treat their hair loss.

Finally, the cost of hair transplants has come down significantly in recent years. In the past, this surgery was only accessible to those with a lot of money. However, new financing options and improved surgical techniques have made this procedure much more affordable. As a result, more people are able to get the treatment they need without breaking the bank.

Over 66% of Hair Transplants are FUE

SkyQuest study on hair transplant market has found that over 66% of hair transplants are now performed using the FUE method. This is a significant increase from previous years, when the vast majority of transplants were performed using the traditional FUT method.

We surveyed over 500 hair transplant surgeons from around the world. The results showed that FUE is now the most popular method of hair transplantation, with a majority of surgeons reporting that they use it for the majority of their procedures.

There are several reasons why FUE has become so popular in recent years across global hair transplant market. Firstly, it is a much less invasive procedure than the strip method, and thus has a quicker recovery time. Secondly, it allows for a more natural-looking result, as the grafts can be placed in a wide variety of directions. Finally, it is less likely to cause scarring than the strip method.

SkyQuest’s analysis found that the average cost of a FUE hair transplant in the US is $7,000. This is a significant decline from just a few years ago, when the average cost was closer to $14,000 thanks to advances in technology have made the procedure less risky and more comfortable for patients. However, it is still cheaper than some of the other methods used for hair transplants, such as follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS), which can cost upwards of $10,000.
