When shock loss occurs after a hair transplant, is it the newly transplanted hairs that are lost or those already present and natural to the site? Is the loss ever permanent?
Typically shock loss takes place with the newly transplanted hairs and new growth is expected after 3-4 months. The expected “take” of any given hair transplant procedure is around 95%. If the shock loss is of hairs destined to soon be bald, sometimes they do not call come back.
