Sapphire Hair Transplant Istanbul

When it comes to hair loss treatment for men, hair transplant clinics in Turkey are fast becoming the top choice. Nearly a decade ago, hair transplant surgery was an expensive procedure that only celebrities and wealthy people could benefit from — but that’s not the case anymore.

Not only are hair transplant costs cheaper in Istanbul, but you can also be confident that you will receive a higher level of quality and care. Lead hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Cengiz Yaylaci and his team in Istanbul arrange everything from airport transfers to hotel accommodations and hotel-to-clinic transfers. HTI is Istanbul’s most advanced hair transplant clinic for Sapphire Hair Transplant — and is proving to be a fashionable choice for both male and female hair loss.

In Dr. Yaylaci’s experience, the Sapphire Hair Transplant technique may help patients achieve a more natural looking head of hair — and should make the results less noticeable once hair growth has started.

What is Sapphire Hair Transplantation?

Sapphire Hair Transplantation is the latest variation in FUE hair transplantation, in which sapphire blades and microchannels are opened at the recipient site. The Sapphire Hair Transplantation at HTI is one of the most used FUE hair transplantation techniques. Hair for transplantation is extracted from the individual’s donor area using a micro-FUE method — in which micromotor and micro punches are used.

Understanding the Tool: What is a Sapphire Blade?

Sapphire blades for use with vibratomes and micro-slicers, significantly improving section quality compared with traditional razor blades. Blades are made from synthetic single crystal sapphires.

The difference between the traditional FUE transplant technique and Sapphire Hair Transplantation comes down to the blade that’s used during the channel concept stage. The traditional FUE method uses steel blades, while the advanced Sapphire technique is carried out using sapphire blades. Sapphire blades are known for their sharpness, smoothness, and durability.

Sapphire blades are sharp and can retain their clarity for longer — which reduces the risk of tissue becoming damaged during the creation of the channels. A sapphire blade contains antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, helping to reduce the risk of infection during the surgery. Due to the smaller shape — and sharper tip of the sapphire blade, HTI surgeons can create more micro-channels in the recipient area — allowing for transplanted follicular units to be placed closer together, eventually creating more density as new hair growth begins

Candidates of Sapphire Hair Transplantation

It is important to know beforehand if you are a suitable candidate for Sapphire Hair Transplant Istanbul because deciding to undergo a hair transplantation procedure does not automatically make you a candidate for the surgery. Please consider the following factors:

  • If your hair loss stems from conditions such as trauma, androgynous type of hair loss or traction alopecia, then you can opt for a Sapphire FUE transplant as a hair restoration method.
  • As with any type of hair transplant technique, the density of your hair at the donor site is one of the most prominent defining factors regarding the Sapphire Hair Transplantation. If you have enough hairs at the back of your scalp, then you will be considered a suitable candidate for the hair transplant surgery in Istanbul.

The severity of your condition is not regarded as a contributing factor. Whether you have relatively minor hair loss or have lost a major amount of your hair, you are still able to undergo a Sapphire Hair Transplant surgery without complications

Sapphire Hair Transplantation Procedure

In today’s world, men are faced with ever-increasing aesthetic concerns prompting aesthetic surgeries to increase in number exponentially. For men, Sapphire Hair Transplantation Istanbul is the most familiar type of FUE hair transplantation technique.

First, hair grafts are extracted from the individual’s donor area using a micro-FUE method. After extracting the grafts, the area to be transplanted is anesthetized locally. The use of micromotors enables Sapphire Hair Transplantation’s outcomes to be denser and more natural by allowing a higher number of grafts (a follicular unit) to be taken in a shorter time from the donor area.

Once the extraction process is completed, your HTI surgeon will use sapphire blades to open the channels at the desired angle, direction, and frequency. This process is one of the most critical stages of Sapphire Hair Transplantation Istanbul.

Lastly, the third and final stage — implantation begins. Using sapphire blades, hair follicles are taken from the donor area and lodged into micro incisions. This method minimizes the tissue damage in the hair follicles during the transplantation phase, so the healing process is quicker.

Benefits of Sapphire Hair Transplantation

Since the endpoint of sapphire blades are V-shaped, it allows our surgeon to make more frequent incisions, allowing more frequent and more natural results from FUE hair transplantation.

  • The sapphire blade reduces the vibration during the incision comparing with the classical FUE. This helps to keep the complications like trauma, tissue damage in minimum level.
  • Sapphire Hair Transplant allows to transplant hair root with more density. It provides successful results even for the people who has advanced level hair loss.
  • It lets the patient to have an easier recovery period.
  • Since the sapphire blades allow open micro channels, the risks of follicles to move or to change their angles are removed.
  • When the Sapphire Hair Transplant surgery is assessed by the equipment used and the results obtained — it provides high-quality results.

How to Prepare for the Sapphire Hair Transplantation?

You will have a FREE consult with our HTI team to perform an initial assessment of your hair and density as well as your scalp tissues and general health condition. After performing several tests, your HTI surgeon will be able to ensure that your physiological health as well as your mental condition qualify you for a Sapphire Hair Transplantation surgery. Our team will help determine your cause of hair loss, and make sure that your expectations are realistic and applicable. Afterwards, it is time to decide on the recipient area for the transplant. The shape and general features of the patient’s face is the determining factor for the planning and mapping of the hairline.

According to the doctor’s recommendation, it may be necessary to stop smoking and alcohol consumption a week before or 7-14 days before the surgery. If medications are used, the doctor who prescribed the medication should be consulted, for the best approach. It should not be forgotten that the Sapphire Hair Transplant procedure is a surgical procedure, and we approach it with great discipline.

What Should Be Done After Sapphire Hair Transplantation?

After your Sapphire Hair Transplantation Istanbul, you will be given instructions on how to apply post-operative aftercare. It is quite possible that you may experience some minor swelling on your scalp. Cold compresses and gentle massaging are the easiest but most effective way of reducing swelling. Also sleeping with your head elevated for at least three days after the surgery will notably speed up your healing process.

If you are not careful with required post-op precautions, there is always the risk of the implanted graft to be dislodged. To prevent this kind of issues, you should avoid exercising and swimming for at least three weeks. Furthermore, there are several substances affecting the blood circulation and even resulting in thinning blood such as cigarettes, alcohol, and caffeine, so it is recommended refraining from these chemicals for a while.

You will be prescribed medications like antibiotics and painkillers as well as cleaning agents such as medical shampoos. It is extremely important to follow the instructions of your doctor; otherwise, there may occur undesirable complications, endangering the success of the operation.

Our clinic recommends limiting heavy cardiac exercises, wet areas such as a sauna and Turkish bath, and swimming activities for one month after Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation. People can return to these activities at the end of the first month.

When Does My Hair Grow After Sapphire Hair Transplant?

Hair restoration is a long-term procedure, requiring lots of patience. It is not wise to expect instant results as the noticeable hair growth starts after three months from the operation. At the end of the first year, you will probably have new hairs as long and thick as the existing ones.
