SHOCK LOSS: normal symptom that may occur after hair transplantation

SHOCK LOSS is not as terrifying as you think

Hair transplant is considered as one of surgeries or simply said it’s a surgical hair transplant procedure. When it’s being called like this, it makes people who are considering getting a hair transplant done, worried whether it is scary or not or will there be any complications or dangerous side effects? I want to say that it’s actually not that scary. Hair transplant is a small surgery so after the hair transplant procedure, you can live a normal life without having to stay in hospital for a long time like other types of surgery.

However, after hair transplantation there may be normal symptoms. One of the common symptoms that I will talk about in this article is the SHOCK LOSS condition. This condition is when natural hair in the vicinity of the transplanted area (RECIPIENT AREA) and the area behind the back of the head where the hair grafts are harvested (DONOR AREA) has fallen after the transplantation. The cause of SHOCK LOSS is that the various steps during hair transplantation make the natural hair in the area “shocked” and then fall off.

If you’ve read this far, don’t panic because the chance of shock loss is only 5%. And this condition is temporary, after 3-5 months the lost hair will grow back. As for the back area where the hair is taken out, it takes about 6-12 months.

However, there is a chance that shock loss can become a permanent problem as well. For example, in the case of hair loss that is from genetics and may be in the final cycle, so it’s causing the hair loss to not grow again, which is considered a force majeure event.

Knowing this should help you be more at ease, that the hair transplant is not as scary as you think, right? However, it’s because each person will have different physical conditions. Therefore, after finding information until you have a certain level of confidence. It is advisable to consult a medical professional first to determine a suitable and safe solution for yourself.
