What's Hair Transplant Shock Loss?
Some men who dive very deeply into pre-op research will ask us: "what is shock loss"?
A very small percentage of men will experience a phenomenon called “shock loss” after their hair transplant procedure. What is shock loss? Franky, it’s an uncommon reaction to the surgery, and it describes the temporary loss of hair that is otherwise healthy in your donor and recipient regions. Even in procedures that are executed correctly, shock loss can still occur in some men, although ultimately, the hair will regrow after several months.
Shock loss is more common abroad, where the standard for surgeons is lower. You can reduce your chances of shock loss by working with a reputable physician.
