That’s the one thing that makes you turn back for a second look. Isn’t it?
But think about those who have their hair falling off and are concerned about that second look that they don’t get.
Something more to think about – Did you know that deciding on getting a hair restoration, or a hair transplant treatment depends on various other factors apart from just the techniques? So, before we get into the depth of knowing more about hair transplant sessions, why not take a look at some of the general aspects of hair fall and how the need for hair transplant has risen.
Hair fall has been on the rise for the last 2 decades owing to unhealthy choices that most make in their lifestyle, the polluted atmosphere, and for many it is the genes they’re born with. But thanks to the advancements that medical science has brought in these few years. But the good news is, hair transplants have been introduced as a boon to those losing their confidence. A huge factor that adds to a person’s physical appearance,personality and presentability, “the hair” can now be restored naturally with hair transplant procedures.
But there are a lot of other things that need to be considered while getting a hair transplant done. Hair transplants are done on the basis of the type of hair and the person’s requirement. So, as a patient if you take up the effort to look into the deeper aspects of a hair transplant, you probably might fall into a dilemma whether to get a hair transplant done or not. That’s when you need medical assistance and intervention over the confusion you develop.
In this article, Let us discuss the doubts which you might have about hair transplant.
The decision to get a hair transplant done must be considered with regard to the technique, severity of the baldness, and the number of follicles needed. Apart from these it also should be based on the type of session that you either choose or which best suits your requirement. So, here are the two main sessions you might want to look at to make the right choice.
- A Mega session
- A Giga session
These sessions can be considered if:
- You require more than 3000 follicles to be extracted from the donor area
- You are a case of extreme baldness
- You have other donor areas like beard and chest hair.
The only thing that comes to your thoughts is if you are the right candidate for a hair restoration when it comes to thinking so much in detail about which session works best for your case. Let’s look into more about Mega and Giga sessions.
What are Mega and a Giga sessions?
Mega Session: A hair transplant procedure which involves more than 3500 hair follicles to be extracted from any part of the body that has more hair volume and density. A mega session is performed by FUE (follicular unit extraction) technique, in combination with body and beard hair included to compensate when there is not enough donor available in scalp or when you plan for more follicles.
Giga Session: While both the sessions carry the same objective of harvesting the hair follicles, the only difference between the two is that a Giga session involves both FUE (follicular unit extraction) and FUT (follicular unit transplant) and also a BHT(body hair transplant) techniques for extracting the hair follicles when there is a need for extracting more hairs than a mega session like say 4000 to 5000 grafts and is mostly planned in two days because of the duration of the surgery.
It is absolutely your choice to choose what you prefer based on your surgeon’s advice for your hair transplant procedure. But, like it is said there is no gain without pain, Mega and Giga Sessions of hair transplants also have their sets of pros and cons.
Take a look at these, for you will have a better idea before you make the right choice.
Advantages of Mega Session:
- The number of hair follicles extracted are more.
- Grafts can be extracted from any part of the body preferably from beard and chest in most of the cases.
- You can get the density you’ve wished for.
- The procedure is effective in terms of providing natural and long lasting results without the need for another hair transplant in future.
Advantages of Giga Session:
- More hair follicles than a mega session can be harvested in a shorter time frame as FUT is also combined.
- The surgeon can extract hair follicles from different donor areas of the body.
- You will not need a second hair transplant procedure in future.
- It provides more density and volume after the new hair grows back.
Coming to the disadvantages, there are few of them as compared to what best Mega and Giga Sessions can offer.
So all in all, Mega and Giga sessions are a combination of FUE and FUT techniques of hair transplants. Basically both the procedures target for more number of hair follicles with what ever available grafts are present on scalp and the body. It is all going to depend on what you require and how you make the right choice for natural results to come your way.
