Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation

What is Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation?

Sapphire FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplantation is a modern hair transplantation method in which hair follicles are taken from the donor area (usually the back of the head) and transplanted to the bald or sparse area. In this technique, more precise and smaller incisions are made thanks to the special sapphire blades used to open the incisions, which accelerates the healing process and makes the results look more natural. Here is more detailed information about Safir FUE hair transplantation:

Sapphire FUE is a more advanced version of the traditional FUE technique. Since sapphire blades are harder and smoother than steel blades, they minimize tissue damage by making smaller and smoother cuts. This means less pain, faster recovery and more natural-looking results for patients.


How is Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation Done?

Consultation and Planning:


  • Doctor Selection and Interview: The patient’s hair loss condition is evaluated, it is decided whether he is a suitable candidate, and a treatment plan is created in line with the requests.

  • Determination of the Hairline: The new hairline is determined for a natural and aesthetic appearance.

  • Preparation:

  • Hair Cutting and Cleaning: The donor area and the area to be transplanted are shaved and sterilized.

  • Local Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is applied to the donor and recipient area.

  • Collection of Grafts:

  • Follicular Unit Extraction: Using a micro motor, hair follicles are removed from the donor area one by one. Each graft may contain 1-4 hair strands.

  • Opening Channels:

  • Sapphire Blades: Using sapphire blades, channels are opened in the recipient area where the hair follicles will be placed. Sapphire blades make thinner and more precise cuts and provide a more accurate placement.

  • Placement of Grafts:

  • Transplantation: The collected hair follicles are carefully placed into the opened channels. At this stage, placing the hair follicles at the correct angles and directions is critical for a natural appearance.

  • Post-Operative Care and Recovery:

  • First Days: In the first few days after the operation, there may be slight crusting and redness in the hair transplanted area.

  • Care Instructions: The patient is informed about how to care after hair transplantation. Special shampoos and care products may be recommended.


  • Healing Process: Healing is usually completed within 7-10 days. New hair starts to grow within 3-4 months and full results are seen between 12-18 months.

Advantages of Sapphire FUE Method


Less Tissue Damage: Sapphire blades cause less trauma than steel blades, which speeds up the healing process.

Fast Recovery: Thanks to small and smooth incisions, the post-procedure recovery process is faster and more comfortable.

Natural Appearance: A more natural appearance is achieved by placing the hair follicles at the right angle and density.

Reduced Risk of Infection: Sapphire blades harbor fewer germs than steel blades, which reduces the risk of infection.


Who is Suitable for Sapphire FUE?

People Experiencing Hair Loss: People experiencing male pattern baldness, hair thinning or hair loss.

Suitable Donor Area: Individuals with a donor area with sufficient hair follicles.


People in Good General Health: People who are suitable for anesthesia and in good general health condition.



Here's Frequently Asked Questions About Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation

What is Sapphire FUE hair transplantation?

Sapphire FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplantation is an advanced hair restoration technique that uses sapphire blades for precise, minimally invasive follicle extraction and implantation, resulting in natural-looking hair growth.
