Hair Transplant Singapore Options Available
1. FUE Hair Transplant
FUE Hair Transplant is a permanent solution to increase the hair density on a bald scalp.
What is follicular unit hair restoration?
Normal hair grows in groups called follicular units. Each of this follicular unit is consists of one to four hair follicles.
The process of hair restoration or hair transplantation requires the doctor to remove the individual follicular units from the donor site (usually it’s on the back or sides of the head) and then transplant them to the area of concern.
The Most Common Type of Hair Transplant treatment is FUE Hair Transplant
At Sozo, we use FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Hair Transplant technique. Hair transplant in Singapore has dramatically evolved over the last five decades.
In the last decade, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the gold standard hair transplant surgery in Singapore.
Hair transplant in Singapore is suitable for:
- Male & Female Pattern Hair Loss
- Alopecia areata (if stable for more than 1 year)
- Scarring alopecia
FUE Hair Transplant is a permanent solution to increase the hair density on a bald scalp.
2. Robotic (Artas) Fue Hair Transplant
Compared to conventional FUE Hair Transplant, Robotic FUE Hair transplant uses robotic technology to assist in the hair transplant treatment process.
There are a number of robotic hair transplant systems being used in Singapore. But one of the most common is the ARTAS Robotic.
The challenge in any hair transplant is the limited number of hair follicles in the donor reserve. That’s why one of the primary goals of a hair transplant procedure is to achieve the best possible cosmetic results regardless of the finite number of hair follicles that can be transplanted.
Although there’s no striking difference with regard to the number of follicular units that can be extracted using robotic and manual FUE, the robotic FUE is different from the manual FUE in several important ways.
First, the robotic FUE promotes more precise treatment and there will be less transection of the hair follicles. The follicular units can be extracted with less trauma to the grafts.
Second, the robot does not necessarily finish it off faster than the human surgeon. However, the robot can be more consistent and the accuracy is maintained throughout the entire procedure. It’s a reality that a human surgeon may experience fatigue and stress.
Regenera Activa is a “micro-graft” hair growth treatment that is minimally invasive.
Regenera Activa doesn’t require the transfer of hair follicles from the back of your scalp to the bald part or thinning areas.
This works by injecting the regenerative cells, which are usually extracted from “micro-grafts” gathered from small 2.0mm samples of your healthy scalp to the part(s) where hair thinning and hair loss are present.

1. How to get a guaranteed hair transplant results in Singapore?
There are three things to keep in mind:
1. Choose Your Hair Transplant Surgeon Wisely
You must take note that the “survival rate” of your hair follicles are important.
While experts or the more experienced ones can be costly, they can make most of the procedure without letting those precious hair follicles gone forever.
2. Technology Matters
There are technological breakthroughs that can enhance the success of hair transplantation. Is your hair specialist using them?
Post-treatment care is one of the most essential aspects of a hair transplant treatment. This will help you oversee whether the procedure will become a success or a failure.
Is your post-treatment recovery package sufficient enough?
3. Alternatives Matter
You desire the very best for your hair. But the real question: Is hair transplant ALWAYS the ideal choice in Singapore?
Besides those topical hair sprays/ oral medications as well as hair transplant surgery, what are the other choices?
We provide Regenera Activa — a minimally invasive hair regenerative therapy that bridges medication and surgery. Regenera Activa can be used before and/or after hair transplantation to boost its results.
Hair transplantation can be one of the major life decisions. Make a wise choice now!
2. How much does Hair Transplant Cost in Singapore?
Hair transplantation treatments in Singapore cost from SGD$ 7000 for simple cases to approximately SGD$ 15-20,000 for bigger and more complicated cases.
The price differs according to:
- The number of grafts that you require
- The surgeon’s fee
- The rate for every hair graft: $6 – $8/graft (manual FUE), $9 – $12/graft (ARTAS Robotic FUE).
The most essential factor in determining the expenses for your hair transplantation is the number of grafts required.
A person with a moderate hair loss will need up to 2,000 grafts. It is the survival rate of your hair grafts that directly affects the total amount of hair transplant in Singapore.
3. What are the risks of a poorly performed hair transplant procedure?
Any poorly performed hair transplant procedure will have more disadvantages than you thought:
- More expensive because you will have to repeat the treatment
- You only have a finite number of hair grafts, which means that when they don’t survive, then they will be gone forever.
4. Which is better: ARTAS Robotic FUE vs manual FUE hair transplant?
The more realistic answer is that the results are determined by the surgeon, not the technology.
FUE procedures aren’t relatively new, but most of the procedures are done manually.
ARTAS vs Manual FUE: Results Comparison
A manual handheld FUE hair transplant is done by a doctor using a handheld device to extract the individual hair follicles. The success of this procedure is dependent on the efficiency and experience of the doctor. He or she has to ensure that the harvesting is done at a natural distance apart and that the hair follicle does not get transected during the harvesting.
Meanwhile, the ARTAS FUE hair transplant is a procedure that is guided by a robotic FUE hair transplant device. The doctor will be using a robot during the treatment by selecting the density amount needed for harvesting and also mapping out the desired donor area.
But just like the manual process, the results will still depend on the doctor’s technique and art of hairline design to achieve the natural look and a good rate of graft survival.
5. Which is more expensive: ARTAS or Manual FUE?
ARTAS FUE is twice the amount of manual FUE ($12 – 14/graft).
With ARTAS hair transplant, it will cost you $14,000 for 1,000 follicles and an extra 20 – 30 hair follicles successfully transplanted. A manual hair transplant of 1,000 follicles will only cost somewhere from $4,000 – $5,000.
6. Is FUE Hair Transplant Painful?
Local anaesthesia will be injected to numb the area of harvesting. This is done for about 5 minutes.
Expect a slight discomfort during the injection. But after this, you will experience a painless procedure.
Another round of smaller local anesthetic injections will be experienced. This is to prepare the bald area for the implantation of the follicular grafts. Again, after this, your scalp will feel numb for up to 18 hours.
Most patients may be required to take mild painkillers for 1 – 2 days as part of the post-operative maintenance.
7. Does FUE hair transplant leave scars?
The donor skin area heals very well, but FUE is not a scarless procedure. These tiny marks can be seen if you shave your head. So, make sure to leave your hair to 3-5mm in length at the donor area to keep these scars unnoticeable to the naked eye.
8. Will I get fuller hair after FUE procedure?
It depends on the previous density of the donor area and the amount of hair that was involved. It may look patchy for areas where too much hair was removed. After all, the results vary per individual.
9. Who are the best candidates for FUE?
The patients who can undergo FUE must be in good health and with enough donor density or area. Age is also another factor to consider. It’s best to have this procedure done when the hair loss pattern has been balanced. Younger patients will then be advised to undergo other treatments.
Men with androgenetic alopecia and women with female pattern baldness may undergo FUE.
10. When will I fully recover from FUE hair transplant?
After a week, the donor area will have grown out enough to cover up the marks from FUE hair transplant. During this week, expect some scabs to form that may indicate that the healing process has started.
It is advised to refrain or avoid any strenuous physical activity for the first 2 to 3 days after the hair transplant procedure. Patients are also advised to stay away from steam rooms, saunas, and chlorinated pools for 1-2 months after the procedure.
11. Can I use Regenera Activa with other Treatment?
Yes, this can be combined with an oral hair growth supplement, hair growth spray and low-level laser therapy depending on the patient’s condition and preference. The combination of these treatments may even provide more desirable results.
Patients usually reduce their dosage of DHT-blockers after their Regenera Activa treatment.
12. Can I have Regenera Activa treatment even I had a hair transplant?
The remaining hair follicles in the recipient area can enjoy the benefits of Regenera Activa® treatment.
13. If I am about to get a hair transplant, can I be treated with Regenera Activa®?
Many doctors prefer to do it at the same time to reduce the fall of grafted follicles.
14. How long will I see the improvements after the hair transplant?
It may take a year to see the results since hair follicles undergo a cycle of shedding and then growing.
A good cosmetic result can be seen after 6 months, but the most improved aesthetic results are evidential after 9 to 12 months when the transplanted hair follicles have developed fully.
The first 1 to 4 months after surgery involves the hair shafts detaching from the implanted roots, making you feel that they’re lost. Don’t fret as this is normal since the implanted hair will shed temporarily for the first 2 to 3 months. This normally happens from the stress of the surgery.
The hair grafts will regrow after 3 months. You may expect 10 percent of hair growth each month.
Within 4 to 6 months, you’ll start noticing new and stronger transplanted hair.
From 6 to 9 months, the implanted hair will appear denser and you will notice 80% in the improvements on the ninth month.
Therefore, patients are most likely advised to undergo a hair transplant at least 6 months to one year before any major or important event.
15. What are the important things to consider when considering a hair transplant?
You must be comfortable with the clinic, the doctor, and the team that is involved in the procedure.
The doctor must be very knowledgeable about this surgery, and he or she must be able to answer all of your questions or concerns.
A hair transplant may be considered as the permanent solution to hair loss problem. But the question is: are you really a candidate for this procedure?
Dr Justin Boey may suggest that you go on medications or perform a regenerative medicine procedure to prevent further hair loss and even improve the condition of the existing hair.
16. Can I go back to work right after the procedure?
We recommend patients to take at least two to three days off from work.
A bandage will be used to cover the donor area to ensure that it is free from bacteria and to ensure faster healing.
The bandage will be removed a day after the procedure. Your hair and scalp will be washed in the clinic to ensure the grafts are not damaged.
17. What are the things to do after the procedure?
Do not have too much of shower pressure on your head for two weeks. You may use cups of warm, soapy water to clean your head.
Do not use other harsh products except for alcohol, witch hazel, or tea tree oil to clean the blood and other infected areas. You may use aloe vera gel or spray on the scabs that have shed off.
For the long run, you may also try those safe and natural food, products, and oils that promote hair growth.
