Does it really work?
Yes! Hair transplant surgery redistributes existing, healthy hair, which is usually genetically encoded to virtually last a lifetime. Conventional hair transplant growth rates are at about 90-95%.
Will I get a full head of hair?
No. remember, the technique redistributes existing, healthy hair. It does not create any new hair. So it is not possible to provide a full head of hair. However, a comparatively small amount of hair transplanted expertly can produce the illusion of substantially more hair than there actually is. The results will improve how you look to others and to yourself.
How long will it take to grow?
Your transplant will be fully grown approximately 9 months after your All Follicular Unit Megasession.
Will this procedure mean time off from work?
Little or no time off from work is required. But if you are sensitive about how you will look during the days immediately following, you can wear a hat, or, if that's not possible in your work environment, Dr. Mollura recommends beginning the process just before your holidays. Many patients return to work the next day. In fact, many play a round of golf the day following their procedure! Sun and salt water are said to speed the scalp's healing process, usually producing an acceptable looking appearance after just one week. However, every person is different. Beyond examination, your consultation is a good source to be informed of possible strategies for your unique situation.
Is the procedure painful?
Most patients watch a movie or take a nap while we work. Afterwards, they tell us that during the procedure they felt no pain. Any discomfort they feel afterwards is usually very temporary and nearly always minimal. Approximately 25% of patients elect to take pain relieving pills during the following 1-2 days.
Is the procedure dangerous?
No. It is minor surface surgery, literally only skin deep, and one of the safest surgical procedures ever performed. You are under the care of qualified medical staff at all times. Your transplant takes place (using equipment kept to hospital standards) in a private office.
Is the surgery expensive?
Comparatively, no. While there are costs involved, the benefits of growing your own hair make hair transplantation much more cost-effective than other methods, because afterwards no further expense is incurred. There are no expensive chemicals to be bought or used continually. There are no expensive hair pieces to be maintained, repaired, tinted, conditioned and replaced regularly every 18 months in order to look natural. So, weighed in the light of all possible alternatives, the hair transplant solution is not only the best, but is also the most economical overall.
"I've heard from other hair transplant doctors that mega-sessions don't often grow or can produce disastrous results. Is this true?"
Some doctors who have not kept abreast of these new advanced techniques (They perhaps don't want to go through the extra trouble and expense of purchasing the microscopes, hiring and training the extra staff- and handling the tremendous amount of administrative problems that come with it) often make untrue statements denigrating megasessions. They also probably don't wish to face the learning curve of this obviously more exact procedure. Be that as it may, many of these doctors won't consider the Binocular Stereoscopic Dissecting Microscope procedure purely in terms of how it will affect their profit margin. Let's face it- these All Follicular Unit Megasessions typically run from 8-12 hours to complete, with the painstaking effort of a large attendant staff. To the average hair transplant doctor, this would greatly increase their workload and overhead. Of course, for them, it would be much easier to say"you can't do over a thousand grafts at one session" or "megasessions produce poor growth and waste hairs", or "megasessions produce too thin a result". However, in fairness to some of these other doctors, it must be stated that without highly skilled technicians, adequately trained and practiced in the most advanced dissection techniques using the binocular stereoscopic dissecting microscope, and without extreme attention paid to detail at every step along the hair transplant process- other hair transplant facilities, especially those without a lot of experience with megasessions, may well frequently obtain poor results.
What steps should I take before surgery?
Maintain an adequate length of hair on the back of your head. This should be at least one inch long, or you may have a pro- blem covering up the sutures after the surgery. Your donor grafts will be removed from here and you should expect cover- age following your procedure.
