Q. How to compare the quality of hair transplantation:
The quality of hair transplantation can be judged by the direction & orientation of the hairs, the creation of frontal hair line, the distribution of the grafts over the recipient area and the density of hairs/sq.cm of scalp together contribute for a good quality Hair Transplantation.

Q.What is a Mega Session:
Mega session involves transplanting 2000 to 2800 grafts per session.

Q.What is a dense packing:
A dense packing means- the no. of follicles implanted/sq.cm of area. A good dense packing is usually >40 follicular units per sq.cm which prevents the scalp from getting visible between the hairs and giving a balding look.

Q.I am confused between FUT and FUE, which one should I undergo:
FUT (Strip Method) is the most effective method for covering larger bald areas. With this even in a single session we can implant more number of grafts, sometimes amounting to even 3000 grafts or more wheras FUE  although doesn’t leave a linear scar like FUT at the donor area, it leaves tiny scars at the donor site in some patients giving mottled appearance when closely shaved. It is better not to be called as a SCARLESS procedure. Usually it is done at centers, which have very few surgical assistants and moderate infrastructure.
