Have you lost some or all of your hair? Are you worried about losing more? Do you wish there was something you could do about it? If the answer to all three of these questions is a resounding ‘yes’, then perhaps now is the time to consider a female hair transplant.

Can Women have Hair Transplants?

Hair transplants have risen in popularity in recent years, but when we read about this treatment in the press, it’s usually – if not always – referring to male treatment and never a hair transplant for women.

So, you’d be forgiven for wondering whether this treatment even exists – but we’re here to tell you it does, and if hair loss is seriously affecting your quality of life, a female hair transplant procedure could be your lifeline.

What is an FUE Hair Transplant for Women?

The FUE hair transplant for women is – we think – the best hair transplant technique for women out there. What’s more, at our surgical facility in Istanbul, we are able to offer female hair transplant without shaving – this means you can maintain a hairstyle whilst waiting for your procedure, and keep things as normal as possible.

At Este, we use the sapphire FUE hair transplant method. ‘Sapphire’ refers to the type of blade we use, and it’s this V-shaped blade that allows us to create small V-shaped incisions into your scalp. These incisions are much smaller than the traditional U-shaped blade and any tissue damage is considerably less. With the Este FUE female hair transplant in Turkey you will experience -

  • Zero noticeable scarring of the scalp
  • Lower pain
  • Better results
  • Risk of infection is lowered
  • A lower risk of any rebleeding

Hair Transplant for Women with Alopecia

Alopecia can be an upsetting condition, perhaps even more so when you’re a woman. As women, we are brought up to feel like our hair is a big part of who we are. We spend time styling it, money colouring and cutting it, and so if you develop alopecia it can feel like a huge part of your identity is slipping away from you.

However, you needn’t suffer. At Este, we believe the FUE hair transplant is the best female hair loss treatment available. It can be carried out without the need to shave your hair and most women are suitable for this treatment.

Unfortunately, if you have diffuse alopecia – a condition which causes your hair to thin and shed across the whole of your scalp, you will not be able to have the FUE hair transplant for women. That’s because, unfortunately, your hair will not be plentiful enough to be used as donor hair.

Female Hair Transplant Before and After

If you’re interested to learn more about the FUE process, please take a look at our female hair transplant before and after post on Instagram here. As you can see, our client has gone from having a sparse hairline pre-treatment to having a full, natural-looking hairline afterwards.

Unshaven Hair Transplant and Long Hair Transplant

At Este, we appreciate that deciding to have an FUE hair transplant procedure is a big decision and one that you’ll have spent a lot of time thinking about. Perhaps you’re worried about having to shave your head or you’re concerned about having the treatment in Turkey without any aftercare in the UK.

Let us ease your mind: at Este we only use the most reputable surgeons in Istanbul. They are the best in the country and they perform hair transplant procedures day in, day out. They are extremely skilled at what they do and we are proud to have them working for Este.

If you’re also worried about having to shave your head before your treatment – the good news is that you don’t have to. At our female hair transplant in Turkey clinic we can perform unshaven and long hair transplants. That means, you don’t need to shave the area you want to have hair transplanted into, and if you’d like long hair transplanted, that’s entirely possible too.

What about Aftercare?

So, you travel to Istanbul for a female hair transplant and then what? You return home, alone, and now you’re no longer even in the same country where you had your procedure. How does that work?

We understand you may be concerned about this aspect of your procedure, but you can rest assured that at Este, we offer exceptional aftercare for our clients in the UK. Our specialists will wash your hair post-transplant to ensure any possible infection will be avoided and your new hair follicles remain in place. We will also use laser hair growth treatment for a month after your procedure so that new and existing hair growth can be stimulated.

At Este we want you to love your new hair, and that’s why we always go the extra mile to deliver the best experience possible. If you’d like to find out more about our hair transplant for women options, contact our expert team today. It’s time to get your hair and your confidence back.
