FUE Hair Transplant

SAPPHIRE FUE Hair Transplant

  • It is one of the most developed methods among FUE methods and gives the most natural results in hair transplant operations.
  • It allows a dense transplantation.
  • It is designed to accelerate the healing process with minimal crusting by opening even smaller micro-channels in the area where the hair grafts will be transplanted, in hair transplantation performed with tips produced from real sapphire, a very valuable mineral.
  • Sapphire hair transplantation is actually a new hair transplantation technique that is used to open the channels, where the hair follicles will be placed, and obtained from natural sapphire stone, namely sapphire crystal, and does not harm the skin tissue. Thanks to sapphire hair transplantation, bleeding is minimal in hair transplantation, it also heals faster and gives more natural results.
  • Since the sapphire tip has an asymmetrical shape, the opened channels are not straight. In this way, the hair follicles under the skin are protected from damage.
  • Since very thin channels are opened and it is a type of mine, it has antibacterial properties and shortens the recovery time.
  • A denser transplantation with the sapphire tip makes it possible to apply it to patients with more advanced hair loss.
  • Since the opened channels are very compatible with the hair grafts, they are implanted at the most natural angle and there is no possibility of the grafts coming out of place or the angle settings changing.
  • It also has advantages such as a smooth bonding on the skin.

After the Sapphire Fue hair transplant operation is completed, the donor area is covered with a bandage. This bandage is removed on the following day and dressing process is done. Afterwards, the patient is given antibiotics against the risk of infection and painkillers for mild pain. The recovery process after hair transplantation is fast. If you comply with the instructions given by hair transplant specialists or our doctor, you can return back to your social life between 3 and 5 days.

The transplanted hair grafts get fixed in 8-10 days on average. In this process, the patient should wash the hair every day in accordance with the instructions given carefully for the first 10 days. When we come to the 10th day, the crusts formed in the hair transplant area should be cleaned in accordance with the instructions given in the same way. The implanted hair grafts fall off in an average of 1 month. This process is known as shock falling and the reason of this is hair breakage. There is no need to worry during shock loss as the hair grafts are attached during the first 10 days and it is a very normal process. The hair starts to grow up again in 3-4 weeks. When we come to the 6th month after hair transplantation, the hair will begin to gain volume. We will see the final result at the end of 1 year.

In Sapphire Fue hair transplantation, hair follicles are taken from the donor area by using the homogeneous crossing method. After being loosened with micromotors, they are collected one by one with collets. No scarring occurs in the area where the grafts are taken. The healing process is fast. In the first 3-5 days after the operation, redness occurs in the donor area. Afterwards, it heals without any scars.

First of all, the health status of the patient should be analyzed well. Do you have a chronic illness? Are you taking medication? Have you had any surgery before? How is alcohol and cigarette consumption?

If you are working, it will be sufficient to take an average of 1 week off, as there will be a need for a recovery period after hair transplantation. If you need to return to work earlier, you can return to work after 3 days, provided the necessary conditions are met.

Issues that need to be informed to the team before the hair transplant operation;

  • If you are using blood thinners like aspirin, you should inform the team.
  • Depression medications, pain relievers, vitamins E and B, multivitamins should not be taken before the operation.
  • Smoking and alcohol should be stopped 7 days before the procedure.


  • After Sapphire FUE hair transplant;

  • The transplanted area should be well protected for 10 days.

  • One day after the operation, the bandage should be removed and the dressing applied.

  • The first hair washing process will be done by the nurse in the hospital, by explaining how to do it.

  • It should be washed every day for 10 days in accordance with the instructions with the shampoos given after the hair transplantation.

  • It is very important to clean the crusts on the 10th day after hair transplantation because the skin must be allowed to breathe.

  • It is important to stay away from activities such as being exposed to direct sunlight, pool, sea, solarium for 1 month after hair transplantation, in order to get a good result from the operation.

  • Do not scratch or rub your head for 15 days.

    I now adore my teeth. In only six days, they completed an extremely fantastic job. I'm glad they scheduled a control session even on the last day of the procedure so they could finish up with my teeth.
