The general principle of the procedure is based on the fact that the hair that originates in the permanent area or Safe donor area’ are not affected by the DHT.
If the loss of hair is truly extensive, one or two sessions might not be enough and at such a time, you will need a solution that will help cover more area, in the minimal amount of time. At AK Clinics, we understand such concerns and offer solutions that are ideal for people who wish to cover a larger area of bald head, in the least amount of time.
There are actually two options in such situations:
This is actually a combination of follicular unit extraction from the scalp and body hair as well. Even in the best scenario, we recommend the extraction of 4000-4200 grafts at one time. We will extract hair follicles from not only the scalp, but also beard, chest and legs and this decision will depend on how many grafts are available in the donor area.
Something that we are pioneers in, a giga session is a combination of follicular unit extraction and follicular unit transplant. This is the best choice if the requirement is that of 5000 grafts or more.
Not everyone can undergo a giga session, because there are some factors which need to be looked into first. These include:
A giga session is a very careful combination of a follicular unit transplant and a follicular unit extraction. This is actually the best bet when you have the requirement for more than 5000 grafts. With our expertise, we can extract close to 4000-4500 grafts from the scalp alone and the rest of the grafts are often taken from other parts of the body.
In the follicular unit transplant, we will remove an entire strip of hair and from that strip, we will extract the required number of grafts. In addition, through the follicular unit extraction, we will also ensure that there are as many grafts as are required. However, we will still suggest that the giga session be completed over two sessions, as opposed to a single sitting.
Here are some of the most obvious advantages of getting a giga session:
Based on the relevant information, we tailor Hair Transplant assessment report for each patient helping him to make an informed decision.
These are just some of the reasons why you should get your giga session done at AK Clinics:
