What is Sapphire Hair Transplantation?

Sapphire hair transplantation is the process of eliminating the hair loss problem by placing the roots taken from the donor area with the FUE method, into the channels opened through the apparatus produced from sapphire material, which is the most compatible material with human tissue, for people with genetic hair loss problems. In this process, the hair follicles taken from the nape area of ​​the person, called the donor area, are transferred to the upper part with hair loss problem. In this way, the person will have a beautiful appearance physically, psychologically and socially. This procedure should not be considered only as a hair transplant operation. Because people who are physically, psychologically and socially healthy and have self-confidence are happier and more successful in their business and family life.

How is Sapphire Hair Transplantation Applied?

The method of application is similar to the hair transplantation procedures applied in the standard. It is based on the principle of transplanting hair follicles taken from the nape of individuals with hair loss to problem areas. First of all, the suitability of the person for the Sapphire Hair Transplant operation is checked. After performing the necessary tests and making sure that there is no obstacle to the operation, the application can be made with local anesthesia. During the operation, the consciousness of the person is open except when she sleeps voluntarily. If it is desired to sleep during the operation, there is no obstacle in front of this.

Sapphire tips play a role in the channel stage, which is the stage where the hair directions are given in the operation. Since it is a durable material, each channel opened is the same as the other. In this way, hair directions can be given very effectively. The rose appearance, especially in the hill area, is very important in terms of obtaining a natural image. This image can be easily achieved in sapphire hair transplantation with sapphire tips.

What are the Advantages of Sapphire Hair Transplantation?

One of the most anxious issues of individuals who want to have a hair transplant operation is the deterioration of the natural appearance. In the channels prepared with the steel blades used in the past years, the expected natural appearance cannot be obtained despite the passage of time. This continues to negatively affect a person’s daily life. This effect can affect the person’s work, social or family life, which is an undesirable situation.

For this reason, sapphire tips have replaced the steel blades used in Sapphire Hair Transplant operations. Since tissue damage is minimized in canals opened with sapphire tips, the healing time is much shorter than the healing rate of canals opened with steel blades. In this way, the person can achieve a much more natural appearance in a shorter time.

At the same time, since tissue damage will occur at the lowest level, the nutrition network of the tissue will not be disrupted. The output speed and quality of the grafts fed with a quality nutrition network increase at the same rate. Simultaneously, graft loss is minimized. This directly affects the success of the operation.
Another important advantage of sapphire hair transplantation is that it minimizes the risk of necrosis (tissue death). In the hair tissue that cannot be fed due to circulatory disorder, first ischemia and then necrosis occurs. The necrosis situation, which can be encountered frequently when using steel blades in hair transplant operations, has ended with the arrival of sapphire tips. The risk of necrosis that can be seen in people who have had a hair transplant operation is almost non-existent in sapphire hair transplant.

Who is a suitable candidate for Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation?

The first parameter to be evaluated for an individual with hair loss problem is to find the cause of hair loss. The problem of shedding can be caused by genetic reasons, as well as due to many reasons such as excessive stress, fatigue, cosmetics used, side effects of an ongoing treatment, hormonal changes, vitamin deficiency.

If hair loss is caused by genetic reasons, sapphire FUE hair transplantation is the only treatment method that can be applied. Today, there is no treatment method that can permanently restore a hair loss other than hair transplantation.

If hair loss develops not due to genetic reasons, but due to an external factor, the source of the problem should be determined and a treatment protocol should be determined accordingly. Because a hair transplant operation to be performed without eliminating the problem causing shedding or a supportive treatment protocol to stop the shedding will give a temporary result at best. In order to get the most effective result from the procedure, the problem must be eliminated first, and then it must be decided what to do. In some cases, when the problem is eliminated, the hair can regain its former strength without the need for any hair transplant operation or any supportive treatment. For this reason, the necessary tests should be completed first, the operation should not be rushed, then if there is no obstacle to hair transplantation, sapphire FUE hair transplantation operation should be planned.

Stages of Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation

First, the main parameters such as shedding status, donor area quality, person’s request and expectation are evaluated. Planning should be done with people. Because the mirror is one of the success criteria of aesthetic operations. If the person is not happy when she looks in the mirror, it does not matter how successful the operation is from a medical point of view. Plastic surgeries are generally done to feel better and should feel better.

After the planning phase is completed, the expectation of the person is fully understood and the things that can be done are explained to the person, the sapphire FUE hair transplant operation can be started.

The most important stage of the operation is the planning stage. Since the whole operation will continue according to the plan, if a wrong planning is made, the result will be disappointment. Planning should not be rushed, the operation process should be evaluated from every angle, and all possible results should be conveyed to the person. After the person’s approval is obtained, the sapphire FUE hair transplant operation can be started. Once started, it can be very difficult to reverse. A change in the operation may affect the whole planning.
After starting the operation, the hair from the donor area is collected with the FUE technique and the graft is placed in the steam infusion unit.

Sapphire material is used in the channel stage that comes after this stage. Since sapphire material is a durable material, much smoother channels can be opened compared to channels opened with old technology steel blades. The less damage is done to the tissue at this stage, the shorter the recovery time will be. Again, since the sapphire tips are the most compatible material with the tissue, the healing time of the opened channels is very short. When the tissue nutrition system receives the least damage, the transplanted hair will be better nourished and indirectly the success of the operation will increase.

The last stage in Sapphire FUE hair transplantation is the transfer stage. At this stage, the grafts taken with the FUE technique are transferred to the places prepared with sapphire tips with the help of special apparatus called forceps.

Collection of Hair Roots in Sapphire FUE Technique

The process of collecting the roots is the first of the 3 main parts of the sapphire FUE hair transplant operation. Before this stage, hair follicles are analyzed by computer. Fine calculations such as how many hair follicles will be taken from where, how many hair follicles will be placed where, where the hair follicles taken from where will be placed are determined at this analysis stage.

After all the planning is finished, the rooting process begins. Pre-analyzed hair follicles are collected one by one by means of micro motor and special apparatus. The apparatus called ‘punch’ to be used is selected according to the donor area condition of the person so that the roots can be collected in the highest quality.

The intake process takes 2-3 hours on average. Local anesthesia is applied. The consciousness of the person is clear. During this time, the person is in a side-lying or prone position. While the roots are being collected, the person can listen to music, read a book, use the phone.. optionally can sleep. There is no pain involved.
After the removal process, the donor area is closed by bandaging with special creams to be opened 2 days later. 2. When the bandage is opened, there is no scar or an image that will disturb the person. Afterwards, the person does not need an extra effort for the donor area.

Opening of Channels in Sapphire FUE Technique

It is the second stage of the operation. According to the planning made before the sapphire FUE hair transplant operation, the hair density and the direction of the hair are determined at this stage. It is a comfortable phase thanks to local anesthesia using painless anesthesia devices. The person is generally in a supine-semi-sitting position. You can listen to music, watch TV, read a book, and sleep during the opening of the channels, as in the reception phase.

In order to obtain a natural appearance, the channels where the hair follicles will be placed should be prepared as in their original direction. Otherwise, an unnatural or sparse image is inevitable.

In Sapphire FUE hair transplant operation, channels are opened with sapphire tips and tissue damage is minimized. For this reason, channels can be opened much more frequently than classical old methods. Thanks to the adaptation of the sapphire tips to the tissue, the healing time is considerably shorter than the steel blades used in the past. Therefore, post-operative comfort is indirectly increased.

Transplantation of Hair Roots in Sapphire FUE Technique

Sapphire tips are hard, sharp and smooth by nature. For this reason, in the transfer process to the channels opened with sapphire tips, the canal-graft merger is fully realized. This is one of the factors that directly affect the success of the sapphire FUE hair transplant operation. Since tissue damage will occur at the lowest level, after graft transfer, the tissue quickly recovers and begins to feed the grafts. The result will be maximized as the grafts that start feeding in the early period will start feeding without losing their existing strength.

Why is Sapphire Hair Transplant Important?

Today, while there are many materials that women can use in the name of aesthetics, this situation is very limited in men. Therefore, hair and beard occupy a very important place in terms of aesthetic appearance in men. If the person cannot grow a beard for work, social life or for any reason or does not like a beard, this circle becomes narrower and the importance of the hair in aesthetic appearance increases. For this reason, it should be acted with zero risk. Because the image after the operation affects the whole life of the person. With sapphire FUE hair transplantation, new hair is not only transferred to the area with hair loss problem, but also a new identity is given to the person. One’s whole life changes positively with this new outlook.

What Should Be Done Before Sapphire Hair Transplantation?

One of the issues to be considered before the operation is whether there is any health problem or an ongoing treatment. If there is, approval should be obtained from the doctor following the treatment, and the situation should be shared with the doctor who will perform the sapphire FUE hair transplant.

  • If we have an allergic structure, the doctor should be informed.
  • If there is smoking, it should be reduced, if possible, it should be stopped completely.
  • Alcohol intake should be stopped 10 days before, and drinks with blood thinning effects such as coffee and green tea should be reduced.
  • You should go to bed early at night and come to the operation rested.
  • On the morning of the operation, a light breakfast should be made for our body energy not to decrease and for a more comfortable operation.
  • No styling agent should be applied to the hair.
  • Shirts or dresses that can be opened and closed from the front should be preferred.

What Should Be Done After Sapphire Hair Transplantation?

Contrary to popular belief, sapphire hair transplantation is much more comfortable after the operation than before. Many people think that although they have a hair problem before the operation, they are comfortable and think that they will have difficulties after the actual operation, but hair problems affect social life in a negative way. While this effect is sometimes directly noticed, sometimes it affects the subconscious and indirectly reduces the quality of life. The person can continue her daily life in the same way with minor corrections such as ‘protecting the planting area against rubbing and impacts’, ‘drinking plenty of water’ after the operation. The maximum period of attention is on average 10 days. After the shell casting is done, it can be much more comfortable. After this stage, the risk of displacement or damage to the hair follicles is eliminated.

The general issues to be considered after the sapphire hair transplant operation can be listed as follows;

  • It is necessary to stay in constant communication with the doctor performing the operation and follow her recommendations.
  • The planting area should be protected against rubbing and bumps for the first 10 days.

  • Exercises that increase pressure should not be done in the first month.
  • It should be protected from extreme heat or cold.

Sapphire FUE First Wash

Washing is not done on the day following the operation. If necessary, the donor area bandage can be renewed. Washing is started on the second day following the operation. Washing is done with the washing set consisting of foam and shampoo. During a suitable time of the day (morning, noon, evening, it does not matter) the foam is sprayed onto the planting area. Squeezing too much foam with the thought that it will be better does not help the person. It’s just foam on foam. It takes approximately 40-45 minutes. During this time, the person can watch TV, read a book, listen to music or be busy with their daily activities. Afterwards, the foam in the planting area is rinsed (with the help of a person, if possible) with room temperature water without pressure. Then shampoo is applied. The shampoo is applied to the planting area by lathering by hand only by touching it. There is no need to wait as in foam application. It can be rinsed directly. If possible, with the help of a paper towel or a thin cloth, the washing process is completed after the drying process, which is done only by touching.
