What is Female Transplant?


Hair loss affects both men and women, contrary to popular assumption. Although male’s baldness is a generally foreseeable ailment as they get older, baldness in females is frequently unanticipated at any time.

Women should be extensively evaluated by a medical professional in hair transplants before undergoing this procedure to guarantee that they do not have any curable health problems causing their baldness. The next step is to determine if Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) is the optimal method for achieving the necessary outcomes.

The removal phase begins once the anesthetic has taken effect, and the hairs are removed from the donor site using a punch or tweezers in compliance with the hairline design that has been developed in preparation. Following that, microscopic cuts are produced at the recipient site with the use of microneedles, whereas DHI would not involve this cutting phase. The transplantation procedure begins soon once the cuts have been created.

Millions of people from abroad have been coming to Istanbul for female hair transplant over the years.

Operation Procedure

Can Women Get Hair Transplant ?

Female hair transplant is suitable for a limited proportion of women, according to doctors. This surgery will help about 2% to 5% of ladies who are experiencing hair fall. They are ladies who have lost their hair owing to traction alopecia or physical alopecia, that is, nonhormonal one. Women who have already undergone cosmetic or plastic surgery and are worried over baldness across the wound areas are also good candidates. In addition, Women who have lost their hair due to injuries, such as burn survivors, incident damage, or skin irritation, can benefit from female hair transplantation.

Female hair transplantation is recommended for ladies who already have healthy donor follicles. Furthermore, most professionals believe that the “suggested” age limit for female hair transplants is 24, thus you must be over 24 to get it done. Although hair transplant surgery is a reasonably easy treatment, women with chronic health conditions may not be a good candidate for it.

Difference Between Women and Men Hair Transplant

Women (Female) Hair Transplant 10

In hair transplantation in women, it is crucial to transfer hair from dense areas to balder areas. Hair loss in women can occur over the entire scalp, which is very different from hair loss in men. This barrier sometimes impedes women from benefiting from a full hair transplant treatment due to the lack of stable donor areas. In addition, because the baldness process varies more in women than in men, there are fewer donor areas in women than in men.

It is imperative to choose the right surgeon to perform the hair transplant in order to obtain a satisfactory result in the case of a female hair transplant. Before the operation takes place, candidates must pass blood tests to ensure that there are no obstacles to female hair transplantation. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the method commonly used for female hair transplants.

Hair transplantation in women is a fragile process that requires specialized and delicate care.

Our team of specialists will guarantee the success of hair transplantation by analyzing and determining the reason(s) for hair loss and proposing the best technique to recover the original hair.

We mainly have two distinct techniques for hair transplantation in women. The initial method is called FUE, (Follicular Unit Extraction).  The FUE technique consists of carefully transporting to the bald or thinning areas on the back or side of the head to minimize the possibility of scarring. The second, less commonly used method, is called FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation). This method will only be used if the FUE method is ineffective for the patient.

Female Hair Transplant- Recovery Timeline

Female hair transplant surgery recovery period is estimated to be roughly two weeks, although most patients recover in just seven days. Returning to work and your normal daily routine will take the same amount of time.

In these times, you ought to remember of;

  • You are a unique individual and your recovery period will be special to you.
  • The first healing time for a female hair transplant is only 2-3 days. During the primary few days, a soft dressing is applied to the rear of the scalp to hide the very small 0.9-1.2-millimetre extraction holes. This dressing wraps around the front of the brow and secures the bandage over the back.
  • It would be better to avoid from smoking, consuming alcohol, and the beverages containing caffeine.
  • The freshly transplanted hair will fall out two to three weeks following the female hair transplant. This is a typical process that should not be feared. This is a traditional a part of the hair growth cycle. Even though there is hair loss, the follicle remains healthy and returns to the growth phase after a few weeks.
  • During the first three months, the transplanted hair is in a typical resting phase. At this time, the patient with hair implant looks just like he or she did before the surgery. This is also common. You should continue to carefully follow all postoperative instructions and schedule follow-up appointments with your doctor.
