The term Mega Session varies from clinic to another and from surgeon to surgeon. There is no defined number of grafts transplanted per surgery which is widely accepted among the hair transplant community. Some clinics may state that 2,000 or more grafts transplanted in one surgery as a Mega Session, whereas other clinics may classify a Mega Session as 3,000 or more grafts placed in one surgery.
The important thing to remember is why we perform Mega Sessions:
- The more grafts transplanted per surgery provides more surface coverage and ultimately the less number of surgeries required to fill in the recipient area.
- The less number of surgeries results in less downtime or surgical visibility.
- The more grafts transplanted per surgery translates to more hair being transplanted per surgery. This results in faster cosmetic coverage of the balding areas. Since the purpose of undergoing hair transplantation is to move hair, the more hair moved, the better the aesthetic result.
- Patients who have deferred or postponed undergoing hair transplantation due to the thought of multiple surgeries required to achieve their goals, can now achieve cosmetically acceptable coverage and density in one or two surgeries.
Not all clinics can perform Mega Sessions due to a lack of qualified, experienced hair technicians. Our average surgery is approximately 3,000 follicular unit grafts per surgery. Keep in mind the number of grafts being transplanted in one surgery depends on donor region density, scalp elasticity, and the degree of baldness.
Today, we can transplant up to 3,000 follicular unit grafts in one surgery depending on the donor region density, scalp elasticity, and the degree of baldness. Many hair loss patients can achieve the density and coverage they desire in one surgery, not the multiple surgeries required in the past.
