Sapphire Technique is an advanced version of FUE technique that allows us to achieve the most natural results in hair transplantation with the possibility of more frequent hair transplantation.Transplanting the largest possible number of grafts in the best possible way is one of the important criteria for success in hair transplantation. The transplanted hair should appear as often as possible and should look so natural that it is never understood that it is a hair transplant.
We can say that the Sapphir technique is the hair transplantation method that comes closest to the perfection we want to achieve in hair transplantation.Thanks to the micro channels opened with sapphire blades, being able to evaluate the hair follicles collected from the donor area to achieve maximum volume in the recipient area increases the solution possibilities in hair transplantation to a higher point. The bar of naturalness is rising day by day thanks to Safir FUE.
Sapphire Technique, the choice of those who dream of a perfect hair transplant, is a popular hair transplant technique among those who have a hair transplant in Turkey , despite its high cost, as it provides us with the best hair transplant results as well as many other advantages.
What is Sapphire Technique?
Hair transplantation operations, which provide a permanent solution to hair loss, begin to be applied widely with the development of the FUE technique. Although the hair follicles are collected one by one from the donor area and transplanted into the channels opened one by one in the balding area, it is a kind of micro-surgical application, but opening a number of micro-wounds ranging from 4 to 6 thousand in a large area causes a significant total tissue destruction.
In Sapphire hair transplant technique, tissue trauma caused by these micro-wounds is minimized. The V-shaped channels opened by sharp sapphire blades are much smaller. A smooth surgical incision significantly shortens the wound healing process, reduces tissue deformation and helps us achieve much more natural hair transplant results.
How is Sapphire Hair Transplant done?
Sapphire technique is performed by transplanting the hair follicles taken from the donor area one by one into the V-shaped incisions opened with sapphire-tipped blades to the area to be transplanted.
Regardless of which hair transplantation method is used, the first and most important parameter that will determine the result in hair transplantation is the hair reserve in the donor area. With the Sapphire technique, it is possible to obtain results above expectations even in severe hair loss, but it is important to determine whether there is enough hair in the donor area in order to meet the expectations of the patient.
Sapphire hair transplant is the same as FUE hair transplantation in terms of the stages. While collecting hair follicles, steel punches are used as in the FUE technique. The difference of Sapphire FUE comes into play during the channel opening phase to the receiving area. Instead of U-shaped steel blades in the classical FUE technique, Sapphire technique uses much sharper sapphire blades made of natural sapphire stone and made of aluminum alloy.
Stages of Sapphire Hair Transplantation
Sapphire hair transplant process in Turkey takes place in three basic steps after you are determined that you are a suitable candidate for Sapphire FUE
- Sapphire FUE Before Hair Transplant
- Hair Transplant Surgery with Sapphire Technique
- After Sapphire Hair Transplant
Although hair transplantation is mostly referred to with hair transplantation techniques such as FUE, Sapphire FUE, DHI, the important thing is that the whole process is carefully organized. As Medhair, in our opinion, hair transplantation is a total operation that needs to be carried out with the same care and attention at every stage. Collaborating with the patient in hair transplantation , establishing a strong communication, provides significant advantages both before and after the hair transplantation, both on the clinic and the patient’s side.
Sapphire Technique Before Hair Transplant
The first thing to do before Sapphire Technique is to find an experienced clinic, because we cannot leave our work to chance in sensitive surgical applications such as Sapphire FUE..
Using sharp sapphire blades requires surgical skill and experience. Regardless of the success of the technique, dexterity, surgical ability and experience are very important in Sapphire hair transplant method. Because of this situation, the aesthetic risk is high in Sapphire technique.
The fact that Sapphire FUE is a hair transplant method that is technically advanced than FUE does not guarantee successful results. Hair transplantation is an aesthetic surgery operation with an artistic dimension. In Sapphire FUE, this artistic quality becomes more decisive than in FUE. Sapphire FUE performed by inexperienced people can cause unwanted complications and unnatural hair transplant results.
Who is an Eligible Candidate for Sapphire Technique?
All men and women aged 20-60, who have sufficient hair follicles in the donor area, can regain their lost hair with Sapphire FUE hair transplantation technique.
Sapphire hair transplant is a permanent solution against typical hair loss such as gaps at the temples, receding the forehead line, gaps at the hair from the top or homogeneous thinning, as it can be used in case of severe hair loss in a large area.
Sapphire Technique Online Consultation
Hair loss occurs as cases that vary from person to person. Sometimes sudden severe hair loss causes panic, but this may be temporary. If it is possible for the hair to regrow, it would be a more correct approach to get support from different treatments..
Usually, hair loss is noticed when it reaches a certain stage, and there is a much more advanced level of hair loss than is generally thought, but it is only noticed during online consultation.
In Sapphire hair transplantation, online consultation is important not for one-time hair transplantation planning, but for understanding the causes of hair loss and determining the type of shedding.
If baldness is inevitable in the coming years and the patient’s age is still young, taking into account the possibility of second or even third hair transplantation in the future, it is necessary to make a planning in which protective approaches are adopted in the donor area with the minimally invasive Sapphire hair transplant technique.
Online consultation is also the stage of informing the patient about the things to be considered before Sapphire Technique surgery.
- Before Sapphire hair transplant, blood thinners are not used.
- Alcohol consumption must have stopped at least 3 days beforeheand.
- You should inform your doctor if you have a chronic disease or medications that you use constantly.
- It is recommended that you rest and sleep well before Sapphire hair transplantation
- – Wearing buttoned or zippered clothes on the day of surgery is an important warning to avoid damaging the hair follicles while dressing and undressing after the operation.
Sapphire Hair Transplant Operation
At Medhair, Sapphire hair transplant protocol is performed in 7 stages. You can also think of these stages as the flow of the operation day..
Sapphire Hair Transplant Examination
Mandatory general surgical procedures such as various blood tests before hair transplant operations and detailed hair transplant examination are carried out together. It is checked whether the general health status of the patient is suitable for the operation.
Hair loss history and the patient’s expectation in hair transplantation are evaluated at this stage. The patient is informed about the other FUE hair transplantation technique and the processes of the hair transplantation operation, the estimated duration of the operation and all other details are shared with the patient. Curious questions are answered.
Planning of Sapphire Hair Transplantation / Number of Grafts
Depending on the severity of hair loss, the number of grafts to be collected from the donor area should be allocated to the areas to be transplanted so that a certain hair density is obtained. Planning can be thought of as the map of the hair transplant on the scalp.
Since the Sapphire technique provides the opportunity to open more channels, the number of grafts to be collected from the donor area is determined accordingly.
Sapphire FUE Hair Hairline
The hairline is drawn individually according to the aesthetic proportions of the face. We do not generally prefer it to be neither too far behind nor too early..
A natural hairline is one of the first issues that every patient evaluates in order to achieve the best results in hair transplantation. The first thing to look at in the photos before and after Sapphire hair transplant is the location of the hairline.
Many details in hair transplantation, including determining the location of the hairline, are planned according to the hair follicle reserve in the donor area. If the donor area is strong, it is more possible to play with the hairline.
Sapphire Fue Anesthesia
Sapphire hair transplant is performed under local anesthesia. Painless anesthesia is an alternative method for patients who are uncomfortable with the anesthesia needle.
Collecting Hair Roots in Sapphire Technique
In Sapphire hair transplantation, hair follicles are collected one by one from the donor area on the nape of the head. Steel punches of different diameters are used according to the thickness of the hair follicles. This stage of Sapphire hair transplant is the same as the FUE technique.
The collected hair follicles are divided into groups according to their thickness and kept in special solutions ready for transplanting.
Opening of Channels in Sapphire Technique
The revolutionary effect of Sapphire in hair transplantation emerges at this stage. The fact that the micro channels opened with special sapphire tips of 1 mm / 1.3 mm and 1.5 mm in diameter are V-shaped and their angles can be adjusted with respect to each other allow us to achieve the best results in hair transplantation.
Transplantation of Hair Roots in Sapphire Technique
Sapphire tips of different sizes are used to open channels with the closest diameter to the hair root to be planted. Hair follicles are placed in V-shaped channels in accordance with the pre-planned planning, so that a certain aesthetic distribution is created according to the characteristic features of the area to be transplanted.
Sapphire hair transplant takes 6-8 hours. Transplantation of hair follicles is the last stage of Sapphire hair transplant operation.
After Sapphire Hair Transplant
Those who have a hair transplant in Turkey spend at least two more days in Turkey after the hair transplant operation is completed, until the first wash is done. After the operation, the patient needs to rest, but the next day you can explore one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Istanbul. One of the most important things that should be counted among the advantages of hair transplantation in Istanbul is this touristic atmosphere.
Sapphire Technique First wash / wound care
Sapphire Technique makes you feel its ingenuity in rapid recovery even two days after the operation. Wound care or first wash is done one or two days after Sapphire FUE hair transplant by a hair transplant nurse or hair transplant specialist.
The first week is the most sensitive period in hair transplantation. The first stage of this period is passed with wound care. What follows is a progressive and rapid recovery period.
Medhair monitors the case processes with patient follow-up for 1 year after hair transplantation and continues to provide remote support to the patient.
First 1-3 months after Sapphire hair transplant
Because of the low surgical deformation, the scab removal period is usually completed within the first month. Another important event of this period is shock shedding. The hair that grows from all the hair follicles transplanted with hair transplantation falls out quickly.
After the shock shedding, the process of waiting for new hair to grow begins. The scalp has greatly improved.
First 6 months after Sapphire Hair Transplant
New hair begins to show itself. It is expected that they will be weak at first. As the hair grows, the roots become stronger and the hair strands become thicker.
1 year after Sapphire Technique
The final result is almost completely revealed. Now, thanks to the happiness of having your hair back, you have reached the stage where your eyes start to shine. The strengthening of the hair follicles and the thickening of the hair strands continue for a while.
Sapphire Hair Transplant Prices
Sapphire Technique prices are high when compared to the FUE technique. Sapphire tips produced from precious metal and labor cost that requires professional experience are the factors that increase the price of Sapphire Technique.
Sapphire Hair Transplantation in Turkey
Having gained the trust of the whole world in hair transplantation, Turkey continues to be the number one address of the world in Sapphire FUE hair transplantation.,
Those who come from all over Europe to have a hair transplant in Turkey choose Sapphire Technique. Because Sapphire Technique prices in Turkey are incomparably lower than Europe and America.
