How Much Does Bosley for Men Cost?

Bosley for Men is a cosmetic service for men that treats the loss of hair caused by male pattern baldness and other causes of hair loss. They are one of the most popular and advertised brands in the industry.

The procedure can basically be described as hair transplant. Because any type of transplant surgery, and this can be considered a type of surgery, requires a donor the Bosley for Men procedure uses the man’s own hair. This fact will become important later when we examine the total cost of the procedure.

To perform the hair transplant, follicles from existing hair (the donor location) are taken and moved to the desired location to allow new hair to grow in. The donor location is generally the sides and the back of the head, as these are the sites most often the last to suffer hair loss. Patients are generally scheduled for multiple treatments in order for the doctor to assess the progress and select new sites based on the progress. When completed, the good news is that the transplanted hair can be expected to last a lifetime.

Earlier it was mentioned that infection is a concern for both doctor and patient. According to the Bosley for Men website, should an infection occur patients are prescribed an antibiotic which in most cases quickly clears it up and the treatments can continue. For men with compromised immune systems it is important to inform the Bosley physician to minimize the possibility of infection.

Moving on from the procedure, there are four major considerations that need to be taken into account before starting the process. One often overlooked reality about hair transplant procedures is that once you start, pausing or stopping is really not an option. Having half of head of hair is not the best look. So while money needs to be a serious consideration, the idea of knowing exactly what you want from the beginning is very likely to be more important. Discussing your specific reasons for the procedure and creating a viable plan are two things you need to openly discuss with the doctor.

Four major ideas need to be evaluated before determining a final cost. The general range of prices most patients can expect to pay is between $4,000 and $24,000 after all is said and done. Here are the four areas.

  • Hair loss you’ve experienced so far
  • Amount of donor hair available
  • Characteristics of your donor hair (texture, color, curl, etc.)
  • Your desired results

We’ve already discussed the last of these four, and this will ultimately be a personal decision between you, your doctor, and your financial state. Because your entire head will not likely undergo the process all at once, expect several sessions to complete the procedure.

The amount of hair loss you have experienced thus far is obvious, but it is also a signal not to delay starting the procedure. First, it will cost you less to get the treatments. Second, you can retain the natural appearance of your hair, returning for additional transplants as the hair loss continues. This second point needs to be considered so that people who are in positions where personal appearance is critical to their careers can focus on their future instead of stressing about it.

Second on the list that determines the final cost is the amount of donor hair. The smaller the amount available, the more transplants will be required because there is not much to work with from the beginning. Again, this is a reason you need to start the treatments sooner than later. Hair loss can accelerate quickly, and there is no guarantee you will have the time or finances to afford it in the future.

Finally, there are the specific characteristics of your hair. This is a technical issue you will need to specifically talk to the doctor about, but for the purposes of this article it simply means all hair cannot be used the same way. This is why the procedure uses you own hair so that it will properly match your existing hair. The last thing you want is a head of hair that looks like a patchwork quilt.

To sum up, you want to have between $4,000 and $24,000 saved up to avoid having to pause or stop the procedure one it’s started. Financing opportunities are available, but make sure your budget can handle them. Discussing with your physician any particular medical problems is a critical part of the process to minimize the possibility of infection. Finally, you need to do your own homework and know what you want before scheduling an appointment. The more you know, the smoother the interview with the doctor will go, and the best plan can be designed to give you the best final result.
