Sapphire FUE Hair Implant Recovery Time 

After the procedure, you might remain in the hospital to monitor your condition. But typically sapphire hair transplant is an outpatient procedure. A few days after the procedure, you will return to the clinic to have your hair washed by your doctor because the treated areas are extremely delicate.

You will notice scabs throughout the first month; they will slowly fade. You will start to see hair growth after the third month. After six months, you will noticeably see the hair growth, and expect full results in 12 months.

Sapphire Hair Restoration Complications 

Some of the complications that could arise from the procedure include the following:

  • Itching
  • Infection
  • Swelling around the eyes
  • Scalp swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Hair loss

How Does Sapphire Hair Transplant Procedure Work?

Your process will begin with a consultation with an experienced healthcare consultant; they will answer your questions and discuss your expectation; you can request to examine sapphire FUE before and after the results. With the help of your hair transplant surgeon, the consultant will explain to you the best approach for your treatment.

Also, during the consultation, the doctor will examine your medical history and assess if you're eligible for the treatment before proceeding to the next step.

Preparing the Scalp (The Donor Area)

You will need to shave your hair, which helps the doctor understand and mimic the natural direction your hair grows. But it is possible to shave your head partially, which can be discussed and decided in your consultation.


You arrive at the clinic and need the necessary documentation before proceeding to the procedure. The surgeon will take photographs and mark the treatment areas.

Administrating Anesthesia

The surgeon will inject you with a local anesthetic directly into the scalp. You will feel a sting, but the anesthesia will take effect instantly. The goal is to make the grafting process painless and comfortable.

Extracting of Follicular Units

Micromotor will be used to extract hair follicles. Sapphire blades will create V-shaped incisions in the desired regions, which will act as the canals for follicle implantation.

Implantation of Grafts

Hair follicles will be implanted into these incisions. The initial results will be visible after six months, and full hair growth can be expected in a year.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is sapphire better than FUE?

With a sapphire hair transplant, the procedure doesn't damage the scalp tissue during the harvesting phase because the specialist uses sapphire gem for incision and extraction. Meaning you will heal faster. 

What is the difference between FUE and sapphire FUE?

The significant difference is the type of blade used during the procedure. Sapphire FUE uses a sapphire gem microblade, which is sharper than the blade used in traditional FUE.

What is the most effective hair transplant method?

The most effective hair transplant method varies from one patient to another. If you're looking for a quick recovery DHI or sapphire hair transplant is the best method. But if you're looking to treat a broad area, FUE is the better technique.

What is the newest hair transplant technique?

NeoGraft is one of the newest and most advanced hair transplantation techniques. It's a semi-automated version of the FUE technique.

What is the cost of a sapphire hair transplant in Turkey? 

Sapphire hair transplant cost in Turkey ranges between €1500 - €1650. Typically, the price varies based on the extent of the procedure, the patient’s chosen clinic, and the doctor’s experience.
