Shock Loss After Hair Transplant - Shock Loss Explained


Shock loss after Hair transplant surgery which is done either by FUE or by FUSS technique includes thinning of hairs and patchy baldness.

You may face shock loss either at donor area or either at recipient area, the difference is that the shock loss after hair transplant surgery in the donor area is temporary while the shock loss in recipient area is permanent.

Sometimes, the donor area may be ‘over harvested’ which is the over extraction of hairs from a specific donor area. This may result in to appearance of hairs just like shock loss, but it is a quite different situation from shock loss.

The hair loss from donor area is temporary and normally the hairs grow again within 3-4 months after the shock loss happens same is the case with thinning of hairs in donor area (temporary).

Contrary the shock loss at the recipient area is permanent; in both cases you should discuss the situation with your surgeon.

He will then plan out the complete procedure to proceed your hair transplant surgery after examining your complete situation.

I had a FUT hair transplant 3 weeks back experiencing some shock loss at the donor site just below the scar. No shock loss at the recipient area. Is it something that I should worry about? Is it temporary?
