Female hair transplant in Turkey is a restorative procedure performed by an experienced hair transplant surgeon from our team using one of the available hair implant techniques, according to the patient’s profile and the desired results.

Although baldness commonly affects men and has a negative impact on their overall quality of life, , the psycho-social effects of hair loss tend to be more pronounced for women, as society is more likely to accept a man with baldness than a woman.

The modern procedures for hair transplant in Turkey for women allow patients to regain their self-esteem by treating this condition.

Many of our patients are interested in the available procedures and innovations for hair restoration, and at the same time, they are concerned with the hair transplant cost in Turkey. Our team has summarized the main costs in a dedicated article, however, we do want to remind our patients that each person is different and may require a personalized approach, depending on the desired results. The cost for the procedure/procedures can be estimated by one of our hair transplant doctors in Turkey after an initial consultation.

Common causes of hair loss in women

Hair loss can have different causes both in men and in women. The underlying cause of hair loss can influence not only how fast the hair falls (and the quantity of lost hair), but also if the hair will be able to regenerate on its own or if the patient will need specialized treatment, and perhaps female hair transplant in Turkey, to ensure hair restoration.

Some of the most common reasons for female hair loss, as reported by our hair transplant specialists in Istanbul who have treated female patients, include the following:

  • Female pattern baldness: also called androgenetic alopecia, this condition is hereditary and is one of the most common reasons for hair loss in women; it mainly affects women over the age of 50;
  • Anemia: this condition occurs when the red blood cell count is lower than normal; iron deficiency anemia is most commonly met in women and it can cause hair loss;
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): a common condition in which the ovaries have abnormal functioning; the symptoms can include hair loss;
  • Thyroid conditions: severe hypo- and hyperthyroidism can cause hair loss (in a diffuse pattern, rather than causing localized hair loss in limited areas);
  • Skin conditions: these include diseases such as seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, or fungus;
  • Lupus: an immune system disease that can cause scarring and non-scarring hair loss;
  • Alopecia areata: a disease in which the immune system affects the hair follicles, causing hair loss;
  • Excessive hairstyling: certain hairstyles, such as high and tight ponytails, or frequent and aggressive hair dying can cause hair loss;
  • Childbirth: post-partum hormonal imbalances can cause hair loss, even though some women can report having fuller and healthier hair while being pregnant; for women who are no longer of childbearing potential, menopause can also cause hair loss issues.

Women who have had chemotherapy will also experience hair loss. For those who have battled cancer, restorative hair procedures can be an important step toward their full recovery.

If needed, we will also provide you with information on special treatments and procedures available at our clinic. We will be able to give you more details about the hair transplant price in Turkey once you decide on the final treatment.

Some facts about hair loss you can keep in mind are the following:

  • it is normal to lose about 50 to 100 hairs each day;
  • heavy hair loss is defined as losing more than 125 hairs per day;
  • female pattern hair loss can affect about 40% of women by age 50.

When suffering from hair loss, it is important to get advice from a specialized physician who can prescribe the most appropriate treatment.

  2. Your physician will assess the adequate treatment option in person, will estimate the number of grafts, and make decisions concerning the donor areas after an in-person evaluation;
  3. The procedure will take place on a scheduled day and the surgeon will start by making the needed donor-areas extractions; the implantation takes place the same day;
  4. The post-operative visit will consist of another visit to our clinic, during which your doctor will evaluate your evolution and provide you with further information on how you should care for the transplanted hair.

Your hair transplant doctor in Turkey will give you detailed information about the hair transplant stages. It is natural for the transplanted hair to fall, as the new hair follicles follow their natural stages. However, you should not be alarmed.

You can improve your quality of life by undergoing a simple cosmetic procedure that will allow you to reduce or eliminate existing insecurities about the aspect of your hair. We understand that the costs play an important role, this is why we can estimate the hair transplant cost in Turkey after an initial discussion.

Side effects of women hair transplant

Our clinic specializes in hair transplants in Turkey and assures you there are minimal side effects associated with women hair transplants.

Some common side effects of a hair transplant, particularly FUE, may include a tight, achy, swollen scalp, as well as scabbing around the transplanted hairs. These side effects are not harmful. They are temporary and should resolve relatively quickly, in a few days.

There is a very small risk of more serious complications, such as bleeding on the scalp, infection, or an allergic reaction to the local anesthetic. These are not common occurrences, and our team will make sure to take all necessary precautions and provide proper medical care for your safety throughout the entire procedure.

You can discuss more about the entire steps of a women hair transplant in Turkey, including the side effects, with one of our medical assistants. 

First results in women hair transplants

It is important to note firstly that some women may see results sooner, while for others, it may take a bit longer. The rate of hair growth in women hair transplants in Turkey can depend on factors such as the patient’s unique physiology and genetic factors.

However, on average, it will take 6-12 months to see thick hair growth following a hair transplant in Turkey. After just five months, patients typically experience visible hair growth, with an average of 50% hair growth. Within a year, most transplant recipients can expect up to 100% hair growth.  

Patients can start using hairspray, gel, or mousse to hold their hairstyle in place approximately four weeks after the surgery. Hair mousse is a helpful product to create volume and make the hair appear fuller during the initial stages of new hair growth.

Consulting with one of our medical assistants can give you an idea about your own personal case and possible first results. They can also help you approximate the cost of hair transplants in Turkey.

Women hair transplants for African American patients

Afro-textured women hair transplants in Turkey have become a popular treatment option. Advancements in hair transplant technologies have improved the suitability of the procedure for this category of patients.

African-American patients may experience different types of hair loss, including traction alopecia. Traction alopecia can result from wearing tight hairstyles such as weaves, braids, or dreadlocks for an extended period or from damage caused by specific hair products.

We will ensure that our African-American patients will receive the best hair transplant procedure in Turkey, according to their unique features.
