Hair Transplantation in Women

When considering hair transplantation in women, different perspectives on baldness may arise. Because when it comes to hair transplantation, male-pattern hair transplantation is usually associated, while hair transplantation is equally popular among women. Female pattern hair loss can be caused by malnutrition, stress or hormonal imbalances. Women’s hair is very important to their overall appearance. Hair is an important component of today’s aesthetic styles. At first glance, women’s hair loss and baldness are immediately noticeable. The backward shift of the eyebrow line and the unhealthy appearance of thin hair strands can also negatively affect the psychology of women. Hair transplantation can permanently help female pattern hair loss. Hair transplantation in men involves the complete scraping of the hair. Thus, it becomes easier to find donors for hair transplantation and to perform hair transplantation. However, this surgery is not recommended for women. Hair transplantation in women is done without shaving the hair. In women, a certain place is opened in the nape of the hair and hair follicles are collected from there. Only regional donors’ hair is collected. None of the hair is shaved. As a result, hair transplantation in women differs from men.

If your hair strands are also weakened, you can use hair mesotherapy to strengthen them and make them look healthier. However, the only and permanent treatment for the clearing on the top of your head and heavy hair loss is hair transplantation. Because other alternative treatments and cosmetic products used after hair loss will not help your hair grow.

Can Women Have Hair Transplantation?

It would be helpful to clarify the numerous thoughts that have arisen on this subject. First of all, it should be emphasized that hair transplantation does not discriminate between genders. In other words, women can also have hair transplantation. The point that should be emphasized here is that the factor affecting the effectiveness of hair transplant surgeries is not gender, but the type and cause of hair loss.

Women who are determined as suitable candidates and treated by a specialist surgeon have a high success rate with hair transplantation. To be a good candidate, a woman must have healthy enough donor hair follicles to produce regular growth and thickness in the long run.

According to extensive global medical research, women with thinning hair will not be considered candidates. Women who lose their hair due to tight pull hairstyles (traction alopecia) often have plenty of healthy grafts to use elsewhere. Your doctor may prescribe medication to help better regulate hormonal disorders that cause hair loss. Hair loss can also be affected by genetics. When in doubt, it is important to seek advice from a qualified professional to accurately identify your hair loss symptoms. Expert opinion will be important, as making your own decision on this matter will not lead to a healthy result. Hair transplantation performed by a doctor who specializes in hair transplantation in women and using the appropriate method is considered a very successful operation.

Can Women Have Unshaven Hair Transplant?

Hair is the most important and natural ornament for women. It is the part that expresses your face and affects your posture and attitude. Hair loss can be caused by hereditary structure, health problems, high stress, frequent diets, vitamin deficiencies, hormonal ups and downs, and accidents. Hair loss, which is shown as the thinning of hair or the complete opening of a region, affects people’s psychology and reduces their daily comfort. Men and women who lose their hair as a result lose their self-confidence and motivation in life. While unshaven hair transplantation produces healthy, natural and full hair in a short time, it also keeps the patient in touch with their loved ones without affecting their daily life. People who have unshaven hair transplantation can continue their business or private life without interruption, and no one notices. For women experiencing hair loss, this pleasant approach is used for hair transplantation. Those who want to keep their transactions confidential, renew their image and spend this process without interrupting their daily lives; It is the most permanent solution especially for women who want to leave the problem of hair loss in the past without compromising their quality of life with the unshaven hair transplant technique.

Since only the donor area on the nape is shaved, not the entire head, people do not have to wait for their hair to come out. People who have the application can continue their lives on the same day without interruption; As a result, the fact that they do not have to be left behind in their career or social life is only one of their biggest advantages. Since hair transplantation cannot be detected, the entire procedure is carried out in complete secrecy. People who experience hair loss can have healthy, natural and lush hair without the knowledge of those around them. Unshaven hair transplantation provides personalized hair transplantation, which is very advantageous especially for women.

When does the hair transplanted on women show its effect?

Hair transplant patients generally aim to achieve lush hair as soon as possible. However, the hair transplantation process takes a long time and the desired effect is achieved after a certain period of time. In the first 2-3 months, the transplanted hair goes through a process known as shock shedding. After this process, the hair starts to grow slowly. Hair grows 2 cm in 4-5 months. However, this period should not exceed one year in order for the patient and the physician to achieve the desired result. Although this period varies from patient to patient, it is generally similar.

The first two weeks after hair transplantation pass with crusting of the wounds in the transplanted area. After the grafts taken from the donor area are placed in the sparse area, the process of adhesion and adaptation to the tissue in that area is experienced. Then a natural shedding process known as shock shedding takes place. However, over the next month, the hair begins to grow slowly. At 5 and 6 months, the hair length can reach 1-2 cm. However, hair transplantation does not allow the patient and physician to take the exact shape of the hair they want. Because the first hair bristles are very soft, not like normal hair.

How is Hair Transplantation Applied to Women?

Hair transplant treatment for women is comparable to the procedure for men. Under the guidance of your surgeon, you should choose a donor site with healthy hair follicles before treatment. Unlike men, women do not need to shave; instead, a small portion of the donor area is shaved, which can easily be covered with the rest of the hair. As a result, you can have surgery without disturbing your normal routine. Hair transplantation in women is carried out in the following stages:

  • After the front line is determined, a painless operation is provided with local anesthesia.
  • Grafts are taken from an area covered with hair.
  • Micro channels are opened in the targeted place to place the hair transplants.
  • Hair transplantation is done.


FUE and DHI procedures are the most reliable hair transplant techniques for female hair transplant in Turkey. You can apply all these techniques in the Yoo Retouch clinic under the supervision of specialist physicians. These two approaches are both suitable for unshaven hair transplantation and are the same in terms of hair follicle removal, but differ in terms of transplantation technique. During the transplantation process, the hair follicles are placed one by one by opening tiny channels in the target area. In the DHI hair transplant technique, a special pen known as the Choi pen is used to simultaneously remove and load certain hair follicles.
