Hair Transplant Malaysia: Cost and Reviews 2018 / 2019

If you are looking to find the best hair transplant clinic in Malaysia, you may wish to check out the cost and related reviews from customers who 'have been there, done that'.

FUE hair transplant, or follicular unit extraction hair transplant, is a minimally invasive method used to harvest and transplant hair. The treatment removes individual follicular units directly from your scalp, which are then replanted into the required site of the scalp.

Alert!: Please be aware that under the Malaysian Ministry of Health Aesthetic Practice Guidelines, hair transplant procedures can only be performed in a licensed medical clinic by a registered plastic surgeon (with LCP Chapter 3 license) or a registered dermatologist (with LCP Chapter 2 license) (Ref: Aesthetics Practice Guidelines in Malaysia).

FUE Hair Transplant Overview
FUE hair transplant malaysia

Hair restoration starts with knowing the type and severity of hair loss. We use the Norwood-Hamilton classification scale for males. In general, if you fall under grade VI (6) or above, FUE hair transplant is not for you.

FUE vs FUT Hair Transplantation Methods

FUE treatment removes individual follicular units directly from your scalp, which are then replanted into the required site of the scalp.

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) process involves removing a small strip of tissue from the back of the head, from which the donor hair follicles will be extracted. The hair follicles are harvested from the strip by a skilled clinical team before being individually transplanted to the recipient areas.

The per-graft cost of a FUT procedure is generally lower than that of a FUE procedure. Lately however, in response to the rising popularity of the FUE technique, many hair transplantation clinics have started lowering the per graft cost on FUE procedures, so that the cost difference between the two types of procedure are not as much as most people think.

ARTAS Hair Transplant Malaysia

An inside story on ARTAS...

ARTAS, the robotic hair transplant system was launched in Singapore in 2013, I was the first person to purchase this system. The robot was amazing, and watching it work was simply mesmerizing. It did not get tired, and consistently provided high quality grafts at a startling speed. However, as time went on, I realized that technology has its limitations.

Some types of scalp just would not give a good yield of quality grafts. And the robot could not adapt well to some areas. Examples are the sides of the head, and areas of the scalp that were too hard or too spongy. In the end, we still have the robot, and often used it, but found ourselves still relying heavily on traditional machine assisted FUE techniques. Non-robotic. But good. And cheaper too!

Hair Transplant Price Malaysia

How much does a hair transplant procedure cost in Malaysia?

The average cost for hair transplant in Malaysia is about RM 12 per graft, i.e. if you are going for 1000 grafts, it will cost you RM 12 x 1000 = RM 12,000.

The FUE hair transplant cost may vary from centre to centre in Malaysia. The number of hair grafts will depend on the size of the area to be transplanted as well as the required density. 

Editor's Note:

Please take note that there is a difference between 'cost per graft' and 'cost per hair'. One graft may have 2 - 3 hairs. Some clinics may quote you on a per hair basis. So, if the cost is RM 5 / hair and one graft has 3 strands of hair; your cost will be equivalent to RM 15 / graft.

Another important point is that everybody seems to be comparing prices on how much a graft costs. However, much more important than the price of each graft, is the actual survival rate of the grafts implanted.

Your hair grafts are a finite resource. You only have a certain number on the back and sides of your head, and any grafts that don’t survive are essentially gone. 

Lower survival rate translates into higher cost per survived graft.

Dr Ruban Hair Transplant Reviews

I've just had a hair transplant completed at Dr Ruban's clinic in Kuala Lumpur.
I have seen some people asking about transplant clinics in Asia and there haven't been any mentions of Malaysia so here goes.


Hair loss is kinda common problem in Malaysia. But do you know what cause hair loss?
Before that, let me introduce you a Skin & Hair expert you might consider in Klang Valley!
Dr Ruban’s Skin & Hair Clinic (known as ‘Nathan Skin Laser & Hair Transplant Centre)
Guys, no worries. If you are visit the clinic you might confuse to reach Dr Ruban’s clinic. But yes, this is the one at Menara UOA Bangsar.


Well, here what I found out. I went to 3 different type of clinic. Dr Shah Hair clinic at Subang Jaya, Dr Ruben at Bangsar(lrt station) and Premier Clinic at Bangsar Village. I am trying to go to DHI clinic but they closed and never pick up my call. Sigh... Ok the review?
Dr Shah : the cheapest I can get. RM8 per graph and they also give 4 free PRP. The bad side is, there is a lady doctor who I think is not well train to do the job. If you want to do it here, make sure you ask for Dr Shah to do it for you.
Dr Ruben: consultant also need to pay. RM100 for bothing and summore recommend me and foRce me to buy propecia. Cost per graph is RM10. But goid thing is, he will bring his team from overseas if you want to do more than 1500 hair.
Premier Clinic: only do hair implant. They dont do hair transplant. Means they put a fake hair on your head. You can't do many things with that fake hair even though it looks like original. With fake hair, it wont grow, you cant blow dry your hair with certain temp, cant go to sauna without cover your head, can't dye your hair, and it will start gradually to fall within 10 years. Then you have to do it again. And cost RM12 per graph. I dont like this clinic cause the coubter gurl approach me after consultation and trying to force me to pay the up front. Feels like Yun Nam. The PRP cost rm2000 per session. Bloody expensive. Then always said 'my customer from uk, from us bla bla bla'.
