Hair Transplant in Manila

The Ultimate Guide to Hair Transplant in Manila

Last fact-checked: 20 January 2020

Hair loss can be a painful blow to your self-confidence—and if it’s bothering you, you’ve probably tried most non-surgical options out there. Undergoing a hair transplant in Manila is a great option if you want to effectively restore your hair while paying thousands less than what you’d pay at home for this notoriously expensive procedure. 

Book with Medical Departures at one of our background-checked clinics to ensure you receive professional care in a world-class facility.

Am I a good candidate for Hair Transplant?

You may be if your hair loss is:

  • Thinning hair as a result of male or female pattern baldness

  • Not the result of stress, medication or treatment

  • You have enough hair to allow transplantation

Why Should I Have My Hair Transplant in Manila?

Manila is an impressive resource of skilled, qualified medical professionals who provide services in top JCI-accredited hospitals. Many surgeons have studied abroad, and English is spoken widely, as well. 

Aside from the quality of care, the main reason why patients fly into the Philippine capital is to save a huge amount of money. You’ll pay approximately 50%-80% less, which, even when factoring in airfare and accommodation expenses, will still leave you with a four-figure overall saving compared to if you were to have the procedure at home. With that kind of savings, you can turn your quest for a fuller head of hair into a mini-vacation, too (just as long as you do it before surgery). 

What Is the Cost of a Hair Transplant in Manila?

Costs vary depending on the size of the area and number of grafts required. However, hair transplants in Manila at one of our background-checked are up to 80% less than what you would expect to pay in Australia or the US. 

For prices, as well as clinic photos, surgeon profiles, maps and more, browse these top three clinics in Manila that offer hair transplants to international patients. 

How Can I Be Sure of the Quality of My Hair Transplant in Manila, Philippines?

You should research Manila hair transplant providers the same way you would at home. Check provider’s education, certifications, qualifications, professional memberships and portfolios. You’ll want to check as many before and after photos as you can find, as well as read a good number of reviews. 

We at Medical Departures know how important research is. We conduct our own research and quality checks to ensure that we list only surgeons who are qualified, educated at top schools, have professional association memberships, positive reviews and a portfolio of before and after photos. We even do criminal and legal checks—an extra step to provide peace of mind. 

What Happens During the Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant surgery is a major procedure that’s generally carried out under local anesthetic.

Normally, the procedure involves hair being harvested from one part of your head or elsewhere, and grafted to the thinning area. A specialist surgeon does this by removing follicles from the donor area and then carefully implanting them into minute slits made on the target area of the scalp (i.e, where you want growth). 

Techniques

Talk with your surgeon to choose the best technique for you. Each technique has its own pros and cons. The most common hair transplant techniques are:

  • Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), or strip harvesting. FUT involves the removal of a strip of hair, usually from the back of the head, which is transplanted onto the front of the head.

  • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) extracts clusters of a few hair follicles from all over the scalp and transplants them onto the thinning areas. FUE takes longer to do and more hair needs to be cut short to access the follicles. However, this technique doesn’t require stitches, creates less obvious scars, and has a quicker recovery.

  • Scalp Flap Surgery transplants a larger flap of the scalp with growing hair into the bald area. Because the skin is intact with growing follicles, hair starts growing immediately, although this is considered the most drastic procedure.

You can read more about hair transplants at the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery

How Long Will the Procedure Take to Carry Out?

Hair Transplant surgery duration depends on the amount of hair that needs to be transplanted. Often, it can take between four and eight hours, and transplants may be carried out over a series of appointments.

Again, this is something that you can speak with your chosen surgeon in Manila about—they will be able to tell you everything you need to know about the procedure, as well as decide which technique is right for you.  

What Does the Recovery Process Look Like?

You can return to work within a week or so, but you will need to take it easy for the first couple of weeks. You’ll also need to stay in Manila for a good few days as you recover—and make sure you stay indoors, or at least cover up away from any exposure to the sun.

Strenuous activity may affect your blood pressure and thus can affect the healing of your hair grafts. Small scabs will appear during the first week and fall off on their own.

The grafted hair will shed during the first month, and then slowly regrow over the next three months. You can expect to see the final results in about eight to ten months.
