 WHAT DOES SHOCK LOSS MEAN IN HAIR TRANSPLANTATION ?

Outer appearance has become an important issue for various people in the modern society.
Therefore, Hair Loss becomes a problem for men as well as for women. On the average,
12% of men at their late twenties and 50% of men in their fifties, face genetic hair loss and
baldness at different levels. There are many different solutions to Hair Loss, but no solution
was as effective and healthy as Hair Transplantation. Today, many people want to have a
Hair Transplantation treatment due to Hair Loss problems. Well, What Does Shock Loss
mean in Hair Transplantation? Is it permanent? Is shock loss experienced in all hair
transplantation methods?
Losing strands of hair, transplanted by transferring from the area, that takes place naturally
after the hair transplantation operation, is called shock loss. Shock Loss in Hair
Transplantation does not depend on the techniques being used. In FUE or FUT or all other
techniques, a shock loss is surely experienced. These losses begin approximately the 2nd
week. The natural feeding process of grafts collected from the nape is interrupted, the grafts
are prevented from becoming bloodstained and transferred to another area. Therefore, the
hair on the transplanted grafts falls out by Shock Losses. We can compare graft transfers to
the process wherein a tree is moved to another area, from the area where it continued its
life. When hair grafts are moved to another area, their growth cycle stops in the process that
lasts until they grow healthfully, and enter the loss cycle. By the end of 3 months, the
transplanted hair follicle begins to produce hair again. And this indicates that the hair, hair
follicle has moved to the growth phase again.
Shock Loss in Hair Transplantation is considered normal in the recovery phase after the
operation. It does not depend on the technique used in Hair Transplantation.
