FUE & Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant

FUE & Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant

The FUE method is the most successful and the top method among the methods used in hair transplants. The word meaning of FUE, follicular unit extraction, describes the way the hair root is taken. In other words, it describes to us that the hair root is taken one by one. The FUE method is the process of numbing the hair follicles with local anesthesia and then transferring them to the bald areas by taking them one by one with the help of a special tipped micro-motor device.

The most important point that is paid attention to while performing the FUE method is that the hair follicles are placed in the direction of natural hair growth during the procedure. The more correct this procedure is, also the more natural hair. Approximately 4000-7000 hair strands can be taken in one session in the FUE method operation and transplanted to their new places.

There is no incision in the FUE method and therefore no suturing is required. Thanks to that, the patient can feel more comfortable during the operation and the recovery process. It is also one of the most preferred methods because there will be no scars left after the operation. Operations performed with the FUE method are performed under local anesthesia, while at the same time taking breaks during the operation.

Will there be any scars after the FUE method? Will I feel pain?

There will be no incision and no stitches in the hair transplants performed with the FUE method, so there will be no trace left. In the FUE method, which also provides comfort in the healing process, a complete recovery will be seen after two days. In operations performed with the FUE method, you will not have any pain either at the time of the procedure or after the procedure. After having a hair October, you can sleep the way you want, this will not damage your hair follicles. Since no nerves and vessels will be damaged during the operation, you will not experience permanent numbness.

Can it be adjusted in which direction the hair will grow in the FUE method?

Thanks to the FUE technique, your hair follicles are transplanted at an angle of 30-35 degrees to the right, left, back, and front. Therefore, your hair will grow in these directions. In the FUE technique, hair tissues are removed without damaging the hair follicles taken from under the skin. The difference between the FUE technique from other methods also arises here. Because besides removing the tissue quickly, being thin helps to heal quickly.

In the operations performed with the FUE method, which area do you take the hair follicles from?

The important thing in hair transplantation operations is that healthy, frequent and aesthetic hair follicles are taken from the nape or from any area and transplant to the balding areas. This process is also more successful in the FUE method.

How natural does hair transplantation with the FUE method look?

The FUE method is a method that helps to provide the most natural image. After the operation, your hair will look extremely natural and regain its former state. The biggest factor in this is that the hair follicles taken belong to you. The hair color and structure belong to you, so there will be no different image from the others.

Do I need to shave my hair to have a hair transplant with the FUE method?

If you are going to have a hair transplant with the FUE method, the area where the hair root will be removed should be shortened. The reason for this is that it ensures that the roots in the area where the hair follicle will be taken can be taken in a proportional and high number. But if hair transplantation is performed by the FUE method in women, the area where the hair follicle will be removed is shaved slightly. After the operation, the hair can be easily stored by combing that area.

The Sapphire Method

The hair taken from the nape area is planted by making tiny holes in the area to be transplanted. In the sapphire method, a special gap is opened for each strand of hair, resulting in a natural appearance. The transplanted hair follicles do not move from their places. It has a more frequent appearance due to the opening of a special gap for each strand of hair. In standard hair transplantation, the number of roots planted in an area of 1 cm2 is 35-40, while the number of roots placed in the Sapphire technique is 70-80 roots.

How long is the recovery time in the Sapphire method?

The recovery rate is quite high. A rapid improvement is seen compared to other hair transplant methods. The probability of edema formation in the face is also low.
