The more grafts per session, the larger the area that can be treated. Naturally, this is why many patients prefer mega hair transplantation. The definition of the term mega hair transplant varies from specialist to specialist and even from country to country. Mega hair transplantation, which is especially common in our country, is a situation in which the patient’s tissue is ignored, the existing healthy hair follicles are neglected, and the focus is on the purpose, not the result.
For example, while there are many foreign hair transplant specialists who call all sessions of more than 2750 units per hair transplant session as “mega hair transplant” outside our country, this number can be said to be 5000 or more in our country. ,
In my own practice, as I always say, I support respect for tissue, respect for hair follicles, correct planning, correct results and a truly successful hair transplant process.In short, if my patient’s condition is suitable, I would like to go up to these numbers, but to clearly explain the risks we take to my patient while leaving, and always remind that the 2nd or even the 3rd hair transplant sessions will be much more appropriate without damaging the tissue.
Now I would like to explain why I approached mega hair transplantation so meticulously:
1. The more incisions are made in the recipient area, the more blood vessels are cut and the less blood supply to the recipient area. If we are transplanting an area larger than the size of the palm of one hand, it is quite traumatic for the tissue. Imagine how many knife strokes will be made on the area. But as I said, if the incisions are smaller than 1 mm, the number of grafts can be increased. If they are larger than 1 mm, the ideal is not to damage the tissue and the number of plantings should be reduced.
2. The larger hair transplant session, the larger the volume of the procedure, the more physical and emotional strains the patient, hair transplant specialist and assistants experience. What is the need for this? Look, I’m not just talking about the trauma to your tissue. The issue has shifted to the psychological state here. Hair transplantation is part science and part art. Therefore, it is best performed when everyone is relaxed and under as little emotional and physical pressure as possible. A session of 1500 to 2500 FU usually gives very good hair density to the front, middle scalp or crown area. But doing these 3 areas in the same session is challenging.
3. The more grafts are planted, the longer the sessions last and the longer the donor tissue is kept out of the body. This means that the problem of hair loss, the vital struggle of healthy hair follicles, which is the most valuable treasure for someone with baldness, means putting them at risk
