I’m experiencing shock loss in the recipient area after my 2nd hair transplant. I’ve been through this before with my first one. IWhy do some people experience shock loss while others do not? FYI, I’m only 2 months out from my procedure.
This hair loss question was answered by Dr. Glenn Charles of Florida who is a member of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians. His professional answer is below.
I wish we had an answer to the question of why shock loss occurs in some patients but not others. That would be like having the answer to how the lions could be that bad every year and not get better like most other teams. Unfortunately, I am also from Detroit and actually still watch them every Sunday. Not sure why. Where has Barry gone?
Any previously transplanted hair will come back. If you still had some original hairs that were very weak and ready to fall out they may be lost, but you will be replacing them with permanent hairs. Good luck.
