FUE hair transplant megasessions refers to transplanting a large number of grafts in a single session.
The advantages of a megasession are; a faster end result and the convenience of having an FUE hair transplant in a single session rather than over several sessions.
The success of the FUE hair transplant requires mastery using micro-sized openings and special implanting techniques with high-powered magnification. Patients must be carefully selected . An experienced, well-organized FUE hair transplant surgical team and quality control is mandatory.
Lateral slit (coronal, perpendicular)
The incisions give the hair growth direction, angle, spacing, and depth so that the FUE hair transplant surgeon can sculpture and create a natural-looking.
Slit orientation for FUE hair transplants can be parallel or lateral. Incisions made perpendicular to the direction of hair growth are called lateral slits. Those made in a parallel direction are referred to as parallel (sagittal) slits.
The latertal technique reproduces better scalp anatomy. Natural hair varies from 10° to 90°. The lateral incision allows for precise control of graft angulation. Producing more acute angles also has the benefit of increasing coverage.
By using smaller incisions we can produce greater densities.
- Lateral orientation
- Causes less tissue damage
- Permits closer graft placement
- Makes hair strands shingle
- Creates the illusion of more volume
