The results of transplantation are now much better and improved, because of the refinement in this technology and technique. Normally, hair transplant has been done in multiple sessions and a single session contains plantation of 1500 to 3000 grafts and they’re spaced three to four months. And amount of sessions depends on the baldness of the patient’s scalp. The mega session transplant is the most up-to-date and modern method to achieve the growth of full hair in the shortest period and less sessions. In a single session, 4,500 to 5000 hair grafts can be transplanted. Mega sessions are provided with the both transplantation methods i-e FUE transplant and FUT transplant. Your choice of transplant depends on the quality and kind of your donor and bald area.
Completely bald people having Norwood Class 6 or 7 wish to have the maximum hair grafts transplanted in few surgeries, it is called mega sessions. Strip technique is the method in which surgeons remove hair follicles from the donor area as one group. To plant large number of grafts in a single session two requirements have to be present. The first is related to the high number of donor hair can be harvested in a single session; the second is related to the skill of a dedicated medical team to carry out the procedure efficiently. A session over 3000 is considered as mega session. The medical team should complete this surgery of transplanting 4000 to 5000 hair follicles grafts in less than 6 hours.
Mega sessions are possible only if the recipient sites are kept small and not only small, they should be very small. The hair grafts should also be kept in small size; maximum quantity of hair should fit into the smallest recipient sites. Benefit of keeping them small is that the wounds will also be small and scarring will also be small. Mega sessions also transplanted in a natural method or way and throughout your whole scalp and give you significant density of hair.
Combination of FUE with dense packing transplant provides patients unimagined results in a single surgery. To get good results of these sessions, a well-trained team of doctors is required. Mega sessions required exceptional capabilities with greater speed of surgeon.

Very few doctors have the skills to carry out mega sessions well. The possibility of this session depends on these factors:
