Although shock loss is rare, it is important to be aware of this risk before undergoing your hair transplant procedure. Shock loss is when your natural (non-transplanted) hairs are shocked from the trauma of the procedure and fall out. The hairs that are shed will usually re-grow so it is often just a temporary phenomenon. The risk of shock loss is very low and is more common in women and large hair transplant procedures compared to smaller cases. Your surgeon will be able to talk you through this in more information at your consultation.
Hair Transplant surgeons at The Private Clinic are very experienced in dealing with episodes of shock loss and will explain the rare phenomenon to you in detail at your FUE Hair Transplant consultation. Click here to book a consultation.
