According to Web MD, the cost of a hair transplant can run from around $5,000 all the way up to $15,000 and this is rarely if ever covered under an insurance plan. The actual cost varies from procedure to procedure as what is charged is typically determined by how many hair grafts are needed to achieve the desired level of hair restoration. This can require as few as 600 or as many as 3,000 individual grafts. This high cost of a hair transplant causes many to seek out grants and other forms of financial support to be able to afford to have the surgery accomplished. There doesn’t seem to be any grants for this but there are a few places where those considering a hair transplant procedure can turn to possibly win a free restoration. While the main provider of this type of contest has shut down that program and now simply offers a small discount, I was able to find several other sources for free hair transplant giveaways offered by hair restoration surgeons. If you do not live in one of these areas or are not willing to travel to have a procedure done, check with your local hair restoration professionals to see if they offer anything similar to what you see here in your local area.
Bosley / Medical Hair Restoration Product Discount
In 2010, the two leading hair replacement companies Bosley and Medical Hair Restoration merged and are now operated under the Bosley brand. MHR had formerly offered a free hair transplant giveaway, granting a free graft worth around $5,000 to one lucky customer. Under Bosley, this program has changed but now offers a $250 gift card towards the purchase of any hair restoration procedure to anyone that registers to receive a free Bosley information kit. While the company no longer offers free hair replacement, it does offer this money-saving discount to anyone and everyone who asks to receive its hair restoration information kit through bosley.com.
The other sources for free hair transplants I was able to find include an offshore clinic that allows you to earn a free hair transplant through marketing their services to your own personal network, a rather cool South Florida program where two local men are selected to battle it out to win a free transplant and a yearly opportunity to have a transplant accomplished at a major hair transplant provider’s annual conference. If none of these seem right for you, I’d suggest again to search locally to see if anything similar is being offered by transplant clinics or doctors in your city or town.

This is a skin and hair transplant institute based in the Dominican Republic since 1999. The clinic offers a program where patients can earn a free hair transplant through promotion of its services to their friends, family members, coworkers and social media networks. While going abroad for surgery certainly isn’t an option everyone would consider, if this seems like a great fit for you, you should definitely look into the program offered by the clinic. Simply sign up by filling out the online contact form and you will receive information on how to earn a free hair transplant from this offshore clinic.
Bauman Battle of the Balding Free Hair Transplant
As part of this past August’s Hair Loss Awareness Month, one Boca Raton, FL doctor took to social media and local airwaves to promote his Battle of the Balding free hair transplant contest. Two area men were selected as finalists in the contest offered by Dr. Alan J. Bauman’s practice with one of the guys receiving a free hair transplant. The winner was awarded a free procedure worth an estimated $5,000 conducted by the local doctor. If you live in the South Florida area, keep your eyes peeled for the return of this hilarious sounding contest next Summer and you too might just walk away the as the champion with a new head of hair.
