How Much Does A Widow’s Peak Hair Transplant Cost?

    A widow’s peak transplant can cost anywhere between £3,000 to £7,000. The price is primarily dependent on how many grafts you require for your transplant either side of the widow’s peak. Clinics will charge different prices dependent on a number of factors. In this article we will go through the main considerations when it comes to the cost of a widows peak hair transplant, including:

    1. How much hair loss have you had?
    2. Do you want an unshaven FUE hair transplant (UFUE) for your widow’s peak?
    3. The Surgeon’s experience and skill

    What is a widow’s peak?

    A widow’s peak is a lay-term for the development of a “V-Shaped” island of hair caused by recession in the temples. This is demonstrated in the picture below.

    Widow’s Peak Hair Transplant Surgery

    A widow’s peak hair transplant involves transplanting grafts (hair) from the back and sides of the scalp to an area of “V-shaped” recession, also called a widow’s peak. There are 2 main techniques for extracting the hair:

    1. FUE Hair Transplant Surgery– this involves cutting each hair individually out and relocating them into the areas of recession either side of a widow’s peak
    2. FUT Hair Transplant Surgery- this involves cutting a strip of skin from the back of the head, and then using this hair to transplant into the area of recession either side of a widow’s peak

    Widow’s peak hair transplant cost

    The main factor in determining the cost of a widow’s peak hair transplant is the number of grafts you require to restore your hair either side of the peak.

    Most widow’s peak hair transplants will require 500-1800 grafts. An accurate assessment of how many grafts you require for a widow’s peak hair transplant can can only be determined during a face to face appointment with a hair transplant surgeon. At The Treatment Rooms London, the cost will range between £3,000 to £7,000 and this will cover between 500-1800 grafts required for a widow’s peak hair transplant. You can see a collection of widow’s peak hair transplants in our patient gallery.

    How much hair loss have you had and how does this affect the cost?

    If you have lost a minimal amount of hair either side of your widow’s peak, you will require less hair to be transplanted. This will mean the overall cost of your widow’s hair transplant is lower. Generally hair transplant surgery for a widow’s peak can be categorised as small or large in size.

    Small widow’s peak hair transplant cost

    Such cases can be seen here: small widow’s peak hair transplants 500-1000 grafts. The price for such surgery can range between £3,000- £5,000 and an example can be seen below.

    Large widow’s peak hair transplant cost

    The more hair you have lost in your temples the larger a surgery you may require for your widow’s peak. As a result the cost for a large sized widow’s peak hair transplant will be higher. Such cases can be found here: widow’s peak hair transplants 1000-1700 grafts. The price for such surgery can range between £5,000- £7,000.

    Do you want an unshaven FUE hair transplant (UFUE) for your widow’s peak?

    Some patients choose to undergo an unshaven hair transplant, as only the 2 temples either side of the widow’s peak will need to be shaved as well as the donor area. This will allow the rest of your hair in the widow’s peak and behind to cover the temples and the areas that have been operated on. This can enable patients to return to work and social commitments quicker.

    Choosing to have an unshaven widow’s peak hair transplant will cost more as the surgery will take more time and diligence by your Surgeon. As a result, you can expect an unshaven widow’s peak hair transplant to cost more than a regular shaven widow’s peak hair transplant.

    The Surgeon’s experience and skill in performing widow’s peak hair transplants

    The cost for a widow’s peak hair transplant will also depend on a Surgeon’s experience, skill and how involved they are in your surgery.

    At The Treatment Rooms London, our hair transplant Surgeons perform widow’s peak hair transplants 87% of the time and sometimes as part of a larger hairline transplant. They are both highly experienced in planning and operating either side of the widow’s peak, accounting for natural hair direction, angulation and flow. This should mean that when hair regrows, it should blend in naturally into the existing widow’s peak.

    Our hair transplant Surgeons carry out all major aspects of hair transplant surgery, including:

    • Extraction of hair
    • Re-implantation of hair using an implanter pen or the DHI method into the temples either side of the widow’s peak
