The hair restoration/transplant procedures of today are being coined “megasessions” since a relatively large number of grafts are being harvested and transplanted in a single session in comparison to years past. Ziering Medical does perform these “megasessions” if the patient needs a large number of grafts, and if the donor availability is adequate to allow us to harvest these larger numbers. The average procedure being performed at Ziering Medical today is approximately 2200 grafts in a single sessions. We commonly do procedure as large as 3500-4000+ grafts in a single session. Procedures in the past were done in a sort of a “piece meal” method grafting 500-1000 grafts in a single session which led the patient down a path of having to have multiple procedures in order to achieve the density they desired. Ziering Medical patients often receive their desired density with only one procedure.
One argument against megasessions by those who don’t perform them is that the blood supply of the scalp isn’t adequate enough to support large numbers of grafts. This just simply isn’t the case with today’s technology. Ziering Medical solely performs microscopic follicular unit grafting where the recipient area only receives an incisional slit for the grafts/follicles to be inserted. There is no removal of any recipient site tissue during this process. This allows for a larger number of grafts/follicles to be placed very close together without compromise of vascular support.
So rest assured that you can have a large “megasession” performed without any vascular compromise and we at Ziering Medical would love to be the team to artistically execute your hair restoration procedure.
