The Procedure of Giga Session at ASG Hair transplant centre
The Giga Session Hair transplant is mainly divided into two procedures namely;
The Strip Procedure
- The expert, having devised the hair grafts that will be collected in every procedure, he removes a strip from the back of the scalp with a length that will facilitate the required number of grafts
- The strip is taken to be dissected under a microscope and each graft is maintained with the tissue until it is transplanted
The FUE procedure
- The surgeon with the help of his team extracts individual hair follicles from the scalp.
- A Micro punch 0.8 or less in diameter is used to make small incisions in the bald region.
- Finally, the grafts from both procedures are transplanted into the incisions made in the bald area with artistry techniques.
The advantages of having a Giga session
- A Giga session provides more hair grafts in the case where a patient is badly affected with hair loss and has a poor or limited donor area
- A Giga session may be accomplished in two sittings in case a patient has limited time in the first round
- One will achieve higher hair coverage since the hair will cover the whole bald area
- Reduces the chances of getting many hair transplants in the future
