Are the newly transplanted hairs lost when shock loss occurs?

Question:
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?

Answer:
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.
