“My experience at the Wimpole clinic has been great so far. I am a female and had a FUT transplant in order to lower my hairline. My surgery was smooth and easy thanks to the help of Matt, Dr. Malkani and all the staff at the clinic. My recovery so far has been great, I was provided with lots of information surrounding after care and have been in regular contact.”

“I had a great experience with Marie-Royce and Doctor Sciacca. I was able to voice every little concern I had and she was quick to respond. She was a caring and approachable person who put me at ease. The communication hasn’t stopped with Marie, including all of my aftercare questions and concerns. I think this is what sets the Wimpole Clinic apart from most other clinics.

About Hair Transplants For Women

What is a female hair transplant?

While hair transplants are usually seen as male-dominated procedures, they’re also a fantastic choice for women affected by hair loss. Almost 13% of hair transplant patients worldwide are women.

Hair transplants for women are an effective treatment for female pattern baldness, as well as certain other hair loss conditions. Using advanced follicular unit transplantation and follicular unit extraction techniques, skilled surgeons can restore your hair to its original fullness.

How female hair transplants work

Female hair transplants are performed using one of two techniques: FUT and FUE. Both procedure types are very effective; at the Wimpole Clinic, we have a success rate of more than 97% — giving you confidence in our ability to restore your hair.

FUT is also known as strip surgery. It involves removing a sliver of skin from the back of your head, then slicing this into individual hair grafts. FUE, meanwhile, is performed with a micro punch, which extracts follicular units from the donor area individually.

FUT is popular with women. It tends to be cheaper than FUE because it leaves a small scar — but this will be covered by longer hair. Some women still prefer to have FUE as it leaves very little scarring in your donor region. At the Wimpole Clinic, we use an unshaven FUE technique (UFUE) which also means you won’t need to buzz your hair before your transplant.

Should you have a hair transplant?

Feeling self-conscious about your patchy or thinning hair? A female hair transplant could be the ideal treatment for you. If you choose the Wimpole Clinic, you can expect:

  • Success rates of up to 100%
  • Confidential, honest advice from our experienced consultants
  • Fantastic facilities and the highest standards of patient care
  • Surgery completed in less than one day
  • New hair growth from 4-6 months after surgery.

I can only thank god for Wimpole Clinic’s help and laying the facts on the table and allowing me to decide my own future – for better or worse. They really were a god send. James, Dr. May, Carley, Billie, everybody at the clinic – they will always be in my heart. If you are worried about anything, just know you are working with some real angels x

Jessica’s Hair Transplant Testimonial

“I had given up. For many years I tried to resolve my hair loss with alternative hair treatments, plasma therapy, minoxidil, dietary supplements, medications, the list just goes on. Nothing worked. When I tried to have surgery I was rejected several times and told I wasn’t a suitable candidate. I literally gave up. I guess God just wanted me to wear a wig. While it had its perks I was never free of worry – is it sitting on my head correctly? Will if it fall off? What if it rains? You can’t imagine how many situations make wig wearer nervous and how this impacted my quality of life. 

One day I came across Wimpole Clinic on the internet and noticed they had been around for a very long time – and thought what do I have to lose?

I spoke to James Walton and Dr. May and they were both very understanding of my situation. They did some analysis of my hair and donor area and said it was possible for me to restore my hair. Dr. May was very honest – he said that I may not see all of my hair restored, but given my age, sufficient restoration would be possible to make me look  and hopefully feel normal again. No more wigs. Imagine! He said I would also need to take it step by and step and require multiple hair transplants spanning 2-3 years before I could even begin to see some decent results. 

Dr. May emphasised that I take some time to think about things, and we joked about the cost effectiveness of my wig – that was the first time I was able to joke about wearing a wig. I knew immediately that Wimpole Clinic were genuine and I felt really safe and decided to go for it. 

And what a great choice! Even though initial growth was painstakingly slow – I really bought into the process and trusted Dr. May and his team 200%.  

James was a real gentleman – he was always available to answer my questions and give me the reassurance that I needed to keep believing – even when I wobbled a couple of times. Looking back I understand why other clinics were reluctant to help me. It had nothing to do with my suitability for a hair transplant, but everything to do my risk and being ‘too much work’.

I can only thank god for Wimpole Clinic’s help and laying the facts on the table and allowing me to decide my own future – for better or worse. They really were a god send. James, Dr. May, Carley, Billie, everybody at the clinic – they will always be in my heart. If you are worried about anything, just know you are working with some real angels x

General female hair transplant FAQs

There’s no difference in the effectiveness of FUT and FUE for female patients. But many women choose FUT as it’s cheaper than FUE, and they can disguise the strip scar under longer hair. If you want to shave your head, you may want to consider FUE, as this leaves no scarring — so you can style your hair however you like.

Hair transplants are less painful than you might think. The surgery is performed under local anaesthetic, so your scalp is numb throughout the procedure. You might feel some discomfort in the hours and days after the surgery, which you can manage with mild painkillers.

Your transplanted hair will start to grow around 4-6 months after your surgery. But depending on how long you wear your hair, it can take a full year or two to see the final results. Cropping your hair shorter can help your new hair reach the same length as your existing hair more quickly (and get rid of those split ends which make your hair appear thinner).

Yes! When your transplanted hair grows in, you won’t be able to tell the difference between your old and new hair. Because the donor hair is taken from healthy areas on your own scalp, there’s no way of telling that you’ve had a hair transplant.

How much does a female hair transplant cost?

Our female hair transplant prices start at £2,999 for FUT, or £3,499 for FUE. 

Hair transplant prices vary between clinics, often depending on the skill and experience of their surgical team. Choosing a cheap hair transplant clinic may save money — but it can also mean you’re not getting the best care or results.

Marie has been excellent throughout the entire process, even long after my surgery making herself available any time I wanted to speak to her or have any questions.

Female hair transplant procedure FAQs

Surgery duration depends on how many hair grafts you need. Higher graft numbers take longer to harvest and implant, so you’ll be in the chair for longer. FUT is also often faster than FUE. For most women, the procedure takes less than a day (usually around 4-7 hours).

Recovery from surgery takes anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. FUE patients usually recover more quickly than FUT patients, but in both instances you’ll need to take some time off work, and take it easy for a few days after the procedure.


When you’re feeling better, you can go back to work, but you may still need to avoid vigorous exercise for a while. Find out everything you should know about hair transplant recovery.

You can expect some swelling, redness, and soreness around your hair transplant. As the grafts heal, they can also be a little itchy. Most people experience these side effects for a few days before they disappear on their own. If you have any concerns, call your clinic for advice.

Yes — a hair transplant will give you your hair back permanently. You may need some supplementary treatments to stop any further hair loss, such as Minoxidil.

It takes a few days for the scabs and swelling to go down after surgery. During this time, it will be fairly obvious that you’ve had a hair transplant. However, when your new hair grows in, nobody will be able to tell — your hair will look completely natural.

FUE causes very little scarring, provided it’s performed by a skilled surgeon. FUT leaves a small scar where your strip wound is stitched up. However, if you wear your hair long, this won’t be visible. Both techniques leave virtually no scarring around the recipient sites.

Sherrie Bates' Hair Transplant Review

I have been considering having a hair transplant for the last 10 years but was always worried it would look unnatural. After visiting other clinics in Manchester I heard about the Wimpole Clinic in London. I travelled down for a consultation with James Walton who was really friendly and had also had a recent hair transplant, he showed me photos of what he looked like before and it was very similar to myself. His looked very natural which is what I wanted. He introduced me to the surgeon Ahmad Moussa who used to be a brain surgeon which confirmed to me this was the right decision. On the day Doctor Ahmad gave me 2400 grafts I didn’t feel much pain at all and was fit and well enough to travel back to Manchester the same evening. I’m just over 2 weeks in and my hair is already starting to come through. James has been fantastic at keeping in regular contact with me to make sure everything is as it should be. I’m very pleased with the results so far and can’t wait to see how it will look in a few months.

Amy Monk's FUT Transplant Review

I chose to have an FUT transplant to lower my fivehead down to a forehead. I chose FUT as I felt it more appropriate having longer hair so as not to have too much shaved, and the slight scar will be easily covered. I was nervous on the day but James the consultant made me feel entirely at ease and talked me through everything thoroughly. The surgeons then took the time to design my hairline exactly how I wanted it and made sure I was happy before continuing. The incision of the donor area was virtually pain free thanks to the anaesthetic, as was the rest of the procedure. I wish I could fast forward a few months to see the result, and can’t wait to feel confident in myself with my new hairline. I’d like to especially thanks James, Dr Ahmed, Billi, Claire and Carolina for making me feel so welcome, comfortable and looked after. I cannot recommend this clinic enough.
