Does shock loss ever occur in the donor area?

Question:
Does shock loss ever occur in the donor area? If so, when does it usually grow back and is there anything that you can do in the meantime to help disguise it?

Answer:
Hair shock can occur in the donor area but it would usually be very minimal. Hair growth is usually seen after approximately 3-4 months. If you are concerned for this rare occurrence, you should grow your hair out prior to surgery to a couple of inches to help disguise the area if it were to occur.
