Do hair transplants work? How is hair transplant done? Can women have hair transplants? There are so many pressing questions when it comes to this procedure that it can often feel overwhelming long before you’ve even stepped foot inside a clinic.

How do Hair Transplants Work?

Hair transplants work by taking hair from an area on your head with good hair growth, and transplanting it to the area on your head with little or no hair growth. At Este, we offer three types of hair loss treatment. They are -

  1. Hair Transplant FUE
  2. Hair Transplant DHI
  3. Laser Hair Regrowth Treatment

All of these treatment types are available for both men and women. Our transplant procedures take place at our sister clinic in Turkey, while our laser hair regrowth therapy is carried out in the UK.

How Long does a Hair Transplant Take?

We’re all different, so it’s simply not possible to state how long your hair transplant will take. However, in general, you can expect the procedure to last between four and eight hours. It’s all dependent on how much hair you’re having transplanted.

How Long does a Hair Transplant Last?

Anyone considering a hair transplant wants to know the answer to - do hair transplants last forever and is hair transplant permanent, so, we think you’ll be pleased to hear that yes, hair transplants are designed to last a lifetime.

At Este, we understand the importance of proper preparation before you undergo your surgery. Our CEO, Sam Cinkir, explains our view very clearly in this video here:

At Este, we are the only clinic in the world to offer this holistic approach to hair transplant techniques. That’s because, we know that the transplant is just one piece of the puzzle. Focus on this sole piece and you won’t get the whole picture.

How to Choose Hair Transplant Clinic in Turkey?

Anyone considering a hair transplant, isn’t doing so lightly. It’s an invasive procedure that takes time and a considerable amount of money. However, when done correctly, you’ll be getting results that you’ll love for a lifetime. With this in mind, it’s vital to choose a hair transplant clinic that you trust, and that delivers results that go above and beyond any other clinic in the world. That clinic is Este.

At Este we use our tailored techniques to make sure your scalp is ready to receive the implants. We focus on boosting your natural hair growth first, making sure this is strong and healthy, before we go ahead and transplant hair from another site.

Afterwards, we’ll continue with our hair growth techniques to ensure both your natural and your implanted hair grow in tandem with each other – both thriving and flourishing so that you get the beautiful hair you so want. We’re the only clinic in the world that does this, so the question isn’t - why would you choose us, it’s why wouldn’t you?

Is Hair Transplant Safe?

When carried out at a reputable clinic by highly skilled surgeons – like the ones we use at Este – a hair transplant procedure is generally considered safe. Of course, as with all surgical procedures, there is always a risk associated.

For instance, you may experience bleeding, an infection, or an adverse reaction to the anaesthetic used. At Este, we always do our utmost to ensure everything goes to plan.

How Long Does a Hair Transplant take to Heal?

It can take six to 12 months for your hair transplant to fully heal. It may sound like a long time, but a successful hair transplant will be well worth the wait.

Once healed, your implanted hair and your natural hair will be in harmony with one another and this will all be assisted by our fantastic post-hair transplant treatment at Este.

How to get Scabs Off After Hair Transplant?

The aftercare involved for hair transplants is quite intensive, and that’s why it’s important you choose a clinic that doesn’t just wave you goodbye after the transplant itself.

At Este, we look after you both before and after your treatment and this includes washing your hair correctly and carefully. Scabs will come away gently when they are ready to, and it’s important you avoid aggravating them before this.
