Safety And Comfort

We followed strict building regulations to build our facility. It was custom designed for medical, surgical and transplant services.

"...For any successful transplant the most important factor is patient safety... ...a Hair Restoration Procedure is a formal surgical transplant procedure and is considered a complex Medical and Surgical Procedure..."
American Board of Medicine (ABM)

Staff working as part of the HR Transplant team, including the Technical and Surgical Assistants, are suitably trained and certified to assist in any medical emergency.

The American Board of Medicine (ABM) considers a hair restoration procedure to be a formal surgical transplant. They state that a HR procedure is a complex medical and surgucal procedure, as it lasts longer than four hours and involves more than one healthcare professional.

You will receive five star treatment during your stay with us. Our dedicated administration staff will be there for any of your needs.

A high level of responsibility is put on the HR Surgeon and his team, with an emphasis on meeting strict International standards in keeping with ABM criteria. The safety of the patient during this complex procedure should be monitored and supervised at all times: before, during and after the procedure.

It is therefore essential that the transplant services be carried out by fully qualified and experienced staff, under the supervision of a suitably trained and experienced HR Surgeon. The surgical procedure should only be performed in a custom built facility, one dedicated to surgical and medical services. Such complex procedures should not be delivered in a general beauty salon environment, or a house conversion where the clinical and surgical environment might be compromised.

Cost And Payment

The HR Institute aims to offer you the best value for your money, with superior services for competitive proces.

"I've had a number of procedures done in the U.K. and Belgium before attending the HR Institute in Dublin for my FUE procedure. After my research and experience, I found the HR Institute offered by far the best value for money.

The HR Institute is fairly and averagely priced, but by far offers a superior service and result. ...my next choice again."
John B

The HR Institute compete Internationally with Clinics offering the FUE procedure. We provide competitively priced FUE procedures to clients mainly from the U.K., the EU and the USA.

The cost of the procedure will be discussed in detail with you during your visit or online consultation.
A guideline to our cost policy will assist you in comparing and negotiating the best possible value for the cost of your procedure.

Following your first consultation you will be given full access to your treatment plan.

  • A standard price guideline is followed to secure the final quote or price per follicle or per area.

  • We follow a fair price deal for all customers.

  • The same standard price guideline applies to all International and local clients.

  • The standard price guideline is designed to be competitive internationally, as well as within the EU, Switzerland and the UK.

There are a number of factors taken into account when our HR Surgeon discusses the cost of the procedure with you:

  • Complexity of the procedure

  • Number of FUE grafts required - we follow the Industry standard to reduce the price / FUE graft with increased FUE graft number per same procedure. This is discussed in detail with you during your consultation with our doctor.

  • If previous procedures were performed before

  • Complicating factors

  • Availability of surgery over weekends

  • Specific aggravating factors, like very curly hair

  • Type of procedure – high-density eyebrow transplants; complicated scar corrections; receding hairline and restoration of the vertex; pubic hair, beard and moustache transplants and many more procedures all have different price structures.

As a result of the many variables concerning the pricing of your surgery, it is an injustice to create an expectation about the total cost. In general you can expect a basic cost structure of € 3.50 to € 7.50 per FUE graft pending the particular circumstances of the procedure.

Procedure payment

Following your first consultation you will be given full access to your treatment plan. Instructions for the payment of the deposit and the balance are explained in your treatment plan. Once you have considered your options and the procedure, you can make arrangements for the payment of your deposit as discussed.

The deposit

As soon as your deposit has been received, your suggested date for the procedure is secured and scheduled. The balance of the payment of the procedure is agreed with the Administration desk.
