Female Hair Transplant In Turkey

Different from popular belief, it is not just men who experience hair loss. While aging hair loss is relatively expected for men, hair loss in women is usually unpredictable, no matter the age. The reality is that about one third of women experience hair loss at some point in their lives. More than 10% of women who are in the perimenopausal stage of their lives and more than 50% of women over 65 have issues with thinning hair.

Hair loss in women is a debilitating problem for them, which is not accepted as a significant problem. Being considered as socially unacceptable, hair loss has a greater impact for women in the society than for men. It can badly affect a woman’s emotional well-being, self-image and quality of life, bringing psychological distress and impairing social life.

Main type of hair loss for women is the same as for men, named androgenetic alopecia. Or better known as hair loss in female humans. It is expressed as gradual shortening in the growth phase duration, accompanied with progressive follicular miniaturization. For men, hair loss typically begins above the temples, and the hairline that eventually recedes forms an “M” shape with simultaneous thinning on the top of the head, quite often progressing to baldness. Different from men, women do not usually become bald.

Thinning hair at the top and front of the head is common, and an increase of diffuse hair loss from the top of the head follows gradual thinning. For females hair loss can occur at any time in their life, from puberty to later ages. But, it occurs more and more in postmenopausal women. Carefully analyzing the patient’s own physical appearance and family history makes the first diagnosis. Other causes except genetic factors are to be considered, such as medical conditions, i.e. telogen effluvium, medications taken, pregnancy, childbirth, anemia, deficiencies in nutrition, fast weight loss, thyroid gland issues, underlying scalp conditions as ringworms, infections etc.

Are You a Good Candidate For Female Hair Transplant?

Women usually have different type of hair loss than men. Male hair loss affects the top of the head while healthy hair remains intact on the sides and back of the head. But, female hair loss usually affects the head in general as women do not have large areas of hair follicles that are resistant to falling. The sides and back of the hair tend to be spread just like the front and top of the head. Hence, being considered as a candidate for a hair transplant requires detailed satisfactory criteria. The women considered potential good candidates for hair transplant procedures are as follows:

  • You are diagnosed with hair loss in a female-pattern with characteristics similar to that of male-pattern loss and have enough donor hair for hair restoration surgeries.
  • You have a naturally high hairline which is a worrying condition for you.
  • Due to aging your hairline is getting reduced.
  • Due to non-hormonal traction alopecia you have a partial loss of hair.
  • As a result of trauma, accidents or burns you are suffering a hair loss.
  • You have alopecia marginalis, a type of inherited pattern of hair loss that affects the forehead and temples.
  • You suffer from hair loss due to trichotillomania, a condition in which the patient has an uncontrolled desire to remove hair from the scalp, eyebrows, etc.

Before & After

How Is Female Hair Transplant Applied?

A doctor who specializes in hair restoration examines the patient in detail to ensure that they do not have any kind of curable medical condition that contributes to hair loss. This procedure avoids unnecessary hair transplants. Given the fact that female hair transplant options are the same as male ones, the second step is deciding whether Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) is the best option to get the results desired.

Female hair transplants can be quite complicated as female hair loss patterns usually tend to be more scattered than in their male counterparts. Yet, if the patient’s conditions regarding hair density are quite satisfactory, an experienced medical team will provide the desired results with a high success rate.

The hair transplant techniques used for female hair restoration, FUE and DHI, are advanced procedures of implantation performed using the same extraction technique. They differ in the types of implant equipment used. The procedures start with the administration of the anesthesia. Once the anesthetic effect begins, the extraction phase follows. With the help of a micromotor and a millimetric punch, the hair follicles are extracted from the donor area. Further, very small incisions are made with the help of microneedles at the recipient site. DHI does not require this incision stage. Once the incisions are made, implantation begins. For DHI the Choi pen is used. It is a special implantation device that can contain 1 to 4 grafts at a time. The extracted grafts are carefully inserted into the small incisions. Eventually, the hair follicle transplant ends.

Newly transplanted hair grows in the same way as a patient’s original hair in about 3 to 6 months after surgery. It takes about 12 to 18 months for the hair to come to the desired density, having a voluminous appearance.

Advantages of Female Hair Transplant In Turkey

Female hair loss has a very frustrating effect so you may be thinking that hair transplant surgeries are very common parts of the process of finding solutions among women with hair loss. Unfortunately, despite that the annual amount of hair restoration surgeries increases gradually, female patients continue acting suspiciously towards these types of interventions due to various reasons. However, we believe that awareness of the advantages and benefits of female hair restoration is a key factor to overcome hesitation over hair transplant surgeries.


Hair transplant surgeries are part of surgical procedures. Techniques such as FUE and DHI are minimally invasive. If you are unable to take a few days off, you can return to work the next day after the surgery although a few days off are advised.


Both FUE and DHI transplant operations provide the most natural results compared to other less advanced techniques. Patients may worry that the transplanted hair can be easily distinguished by the eye, but a qualified doctor and advanced surgical equipment are the guarantee for the impossibility of noticeable misalignment.


Hair transplants are essentially easy surgeries. The process takes time less than a day. Patients can return to their daily lives within a day or two. Local anesthetic agents are necessary components of the operation. Therefore, the patient feels no pain. The after-effects are easily reversed with minimal precautions.


For hair transplants, we use the patient’s own hair follicles, so the body will not reject them as foreign tissue. This makes sure that newly transplanted hair will function similarly to natural hair. It will not require any special care in order to keep the density, such as specific shampoos or other chemicals.


After FUE and DHI hair transplantation, the transplanted hair will shed, as expected and the new hair will regrow permanently in 3-6 months.


Hair is an important part of body aesthetics, and the emphasis placed on hair makes women with hair loss struggle with problems related to their image and confidence. Hence, undergoing hair restoration surgery turns into a strong source of mental stability and improves her body image and perception.

Recovery Period After A Hair Transplant

Once the specialists complete the operation, the patient quickly enters the healing process because neither FUE, nor DHI cause tissue damage.

After the operation, you are able to leave the clinic immediately without any problems. You may have scabs that are visible all over your affected area. The back of the head and forehead may feel swollen and tight for several days. Yet, you do not have to worry as all of these will quickly disappear. In order to speed up the recovery phase, various precautions, you should consider dos and don’ts:

  • Carefully follow your doctor’s instructions on how often you can wash your hair and use only the recommended cleansing products.
  • Do not brush the hair for 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Avoid hard exercise or heavy physical activity for 2 weeks.
  • Apply an ice pack to reduce swelling (if any).
  • Rest is an essential part of the fast recovery process.
  • You will provide medicines, such as antibiotics and painkillers; in order not to spoil the healing, it is highly important to follow your doctor’s instructions.
  • Sleeping with your head elevated is necessary for at least 3 days after surgery.

In 4 to 6 weeks after the procedure, you might experience the so-called ‘shock loss’ known as the loss of newly transplanted hair. This hair shedding is normally expected and temporary. It will provide a strong foundation for healthy hair growth. In 6 months after this hair loss, you will notice your new hair growth. In 1 year, you will get your long-awaited voluminous hair with a natural look.
