Demand for surgical hair restoration increased exponentially over the last decade. Today Hair Transplant Surgery ranks as number one solution for significant hair thinning and baldness. Not only men but most women, suffering from permanent hair loss, are also opting for this procedure. Reason behind overwhelmingly increased popularity of surgical hair restoration is simple, its ability to permanently restore lost hair and that too in a simple and safe way.
Hair transplantation has been around since mid of 20th century and over the last six decades the technique has advanced a lot. Not only results of the procedure are much better than they used to be years ago, but also there are a number of technical ways to achieve the ultimate outcome. Gone are the ways when “doll-like” appearance or “corn rows” of pluggy grafts could have been spotted from a mile away. Today, even your hairstylist will be unable to detect the transplanted hair.
Megasession or smaller sessions, which is good?
One of the many concerns that prospective hair transplant candidates face is whether they should go for a megasession of hair transplant or opt for several smaller sessions. Each hair transplant technique involves a different degree of effort and time. The traditional strip method transplant is faster than the modern Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
What is a megasession?
While definition of megasession varies from surgeon to surgeon, it is generally a hair transplant involving plantation of over 3000 grafts with FUT procedure and over 2000 grafts for an FUE procedure. This means a hair transplant involving under 2000 grafts is a smaller session regardless of which technique is used.
Who is a candidate for a megasession?
To be an ideal candidate for a megasession, one should have enough donor supply. While almost every candidate have sufficient supply of donor grafts to undergo a smaller hair transplant session, most patients don’t have enough baldness resistant hair to be a candidate for a mega session.
Mega session Vs smaller sessions:
While not everyone is a good candidate for a single megasession, nowadays most candidates are opting for it, only because in this fast-paced life they don’t have time to visit clinic multiple times and stay bed-ridden for weeks. But remember both megasession and smaller sessions have their own pros and cons and understanding what each of them entails is crucial to make the right choice.
Megasession has several advantages, such as:
- Since it transplants a large number of grafts in a single session, it can produce more dramatic and notable results
- You can save some bucks since most clinics offer discount for hair transplants involving larger number of grafts
- A megasession means you will have to spend less time overall on hair restoration.
Smaller sessions also have advantages, such as:
- If for some reason you are not satisfied with the results of hair transplant after first session, you can always go somewhere else for better results
- Sometimes results after the first sessions are satisfactory for the clients and they opt not to get successive sessions. This can be cost saving hair transplant.
