Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant
Hair Transplantation is a surgical operation which is applied to the areas on scalp where there is hair loss and it enables hair growth in these areas. FUE Hair Transplantation is the most preferred method. Recently Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation is also became very popular in Turkey.
Hair Transplantation is done by planting grafts with hair follicles, which are removed from donor areas with hair, to balding areas. Grafts are removed from donor area with a suitable method to the patient and then transferred to bald areas.
How Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant is Done?
When it comes to Hair Transplantation, the main and preferred method is known as FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation). Since hair follicles on the back or sides of head are more resistant to DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), they continue producing stronger and healthier hair as they are getting smaller. These healthy follicles are first removed during hair transplantation operation and then transplanted to balding areas of head. SAPPHIRE FUE Hair Transplantation is different than conventional methods because of sapphire knives used during the operation instead of steel knives.
Follicles are removed one by one from “donor” areas of scalp with help of V shaped sapphire knives. These follicles are then transplanted to small cuts done in “receiver” areas of scalp. A technically expert surgeon will enable those hair grafts to grow again in the natural direction of your normal hair. Follicles are creating stronger and healthier hair in previously bald areas.
After Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation scalp might be more sensitive. You might need to take painkiller for couple of days. A bandage needs to be worn on head for at least 2 days. On some cases your doctor can prescribe an antibiotic or anti-inflammatory for several days. Usually patients can go their work between 2 – 5 days after the operation.
2 to 3 weeks after the operation, new planted hair will start falling but growth will be recognizable within couple of months. Most of the patients will reach 60% of hair growth between 6 to 9 months after transplantation.
