Understanding shock loss

Shock loss refers to the loss of either transplanted or natural hair during or after the hair transplant surgery. It is mostly the body’s response to the trauma or accident. Shock loss in most of the cases is a temporary condition and the hair regrows after some time. However, sometimes the hair loss gets permanent and you may need to undergo a backup hair transplant procedure for that.

Reasons to shock loss

In most of the cases, the loss of newly transplanted and natural hair is perfectly fine and the hair regrows after few months. But in some cases, the hair loss is permanent. Here are possible factors that can cause shock loss following a hair transplant.

Body’s natural reaction to surgery

Our body naturally reacts to a surgical procedure so that it can place our scalp in shock mode following a serious procedure of hair follicles extraction. It is a temporary condition and the hair regrows back without undergoing any further procedure.

The inefficiency of the surgeon

The hair transplant performed by an inexperienced surgeon can lead to so many irregularities including shock loss. An inexperienced surgeon sometimes damages the surrounding hair follicles during the extraction or transplantation procedure, which leads to shock loss.
