FUE Hair Transplant
FUE is the most common method of hair transplant. As it does not require any incisions, the procedure will not cause any visible scarring, making it a favorable option. FUE is performed under local anesthesia. The viable hair follicles are harvested via the FUE engine (with 0.6 to 0.8 millimeter collection tips). Each graft contains 2-3 hair fibers. It is crucial to prevent any damage to the hair follicles during collection. The size of the collection tip is also a major factor that affects the healing process.
After the required number of hair follicles are collected and separated into groups, they are ready to be transplanted. The transplant process requires maximum delicacy, which comes together with experience and precision. Meticulous incision of the recipient sites is crucial for a successful outcome.
The lateral slit method will allow the surgeon to make incisions that are the same size and length as the hair follicles. The creation of the recipient sites greatly influences treatment outcomes.
The most important factor in obtaining a natural hairstyle is the angle of the incision. This angle will determine the final pattern and appearance of the hair, and the looks of the hair line.
The wound will be continuously cleaned and dressed for 10 days.
The transplanted hair follicles will grow for 2-3 weeks. However, these initial hair strands will fall out. Please remember that this is a natural and temporary condition. After several weeks of rest, the hair will start to grow again. The hair will assume its final form after 6 months. It might take some regions a while longer to reach their final form.
SAPPHIRE BLADE HAIR TRANSPLANTATION
This procedure was named after the special knives that are used for the creation of recipient sites. These blades are produced entirely from sapphire
and can be used for FUE hair transplantation.
Sapphire Blades are favorable for hair transplantation as they do not get dull, and the crystal edge will remain hard, durable and smooth. Sapphire also has antibacterial properties and will not disrupt the blood circulation. Incisions with sapphire blades do not affect skin texture allowing hair follicles to better attach. The duration of healing is inversely correlated to the size of the incisions, and thus, the skin will heal faster if the procedure is performed with sapphire blades. These blades also reduce the risk of infection. The FUE method has lately become synonymous with ‘Sapphire Blade FUE Hair Transplant’ because of how popular sapphire blades have become.
What is the difference between Sapphire Blade FUE and Classic FUE?
The main difference between the two types of FUE is the material of which the blade is made. Sapphire is a precious stone that is resistant to corrosion, i.e. getting dull. As mentioned before, a successful outcome depends majorly on the creation of the recipient sites. 1.0 to 1.5-mm sapphire blade tips are better able to make closer and smaller incisions. This does not only shorten the recovery time, but also allows for a more natural look.
How is Sapphire Blade FUE Performed?
After an initial consultation, our experienced specialist doctors will examine you.
They will determine the cause of the hair loss after detailed hair and scalp exams.
Together with your expectations and needs, the examination results will be used to plan the treatment process.
Your hair will be trimmed to 3-mm on the day of the operation. Hair follicles will be collected from the anesthetized donor area with micro motors. The recipient region will also be anesthetized for the creation of recipient sites with sapphire blades. Hair follicles will then be placed into these sites. The donor region will be medically dressed and closed to conclude the FUE process.
What are the Advantages of Sapphire Blade FUE Hair Transplant?
- Sapphire blade FUE reduces vibration during incision, reducing trauma and tissue damage.
- Treatment outcomes are better, especially for patients with severe hair loss.
- The healing process is more comfortable.
- The angles of the follicles will be persistent to change.
- The end result will be of high quality.
