A megasession is simply another way of saying “very large number of grafts in one procedure.” The actual number of grafts a megasession refers to is variable from clinic to clinic, but at Feller and Bloxham Medical Hair Transplant, we define it as a procedure exceeding 2,000 grafts in one sitting all the way on up to to 5,000 grafts.
In the typical megasession, single hair grafts are placed into the first centimeter of hairline to ensure the most natural transition from the forehead into the new hair. Behind the new hairline, 2 hair grafts are placed to make the hair look progressively thicker on the top, and then 3 hair grafts are used in the zone behind that to also add to the thickening effect. The result is a properly balanced and natural looking hair restoration.
The benefits of megasessions cannot be overstated in that it reduces the number of surgeries a person may need to enjoy a significant cosmetic difference as well as reducing the price of the overall hair restoration plan in general. Nothing has advanced the field of modern hair transplantation more than the introduction of competently performed megasessions.
In order to perform proper megasessions, a hair transplant clinic must have a “mega” staff. Preparing and manipulating thousands of tiny hair roots is a considerable challenge and requires a truly experienced and trained TEAM of technicians as well as a meticulous doctor. When you’re interviewing HT clinics to perform YOUR procedure make sure to find out how many FULL TIME technicians they have on staff and how many will be guaranteed to work on you and you alone during your procedure.
