25 – What is shock loss after hair transplant? How can we prevent shock loss?
When hair roots have become thin, weak, slow growing due to continued hair loss, doing transplant within the weak roots causes a shock to the hair follicles leading to excessive or complete hair loss after the hair transplant. This hair loss that happens after a hair transplant is called shock loss. Most of this lost hair can grow back with use of vitamins, lotions, lasers over the next 4 months. Shock loss can be prevented by strengthening the hair roots and bringing them in good growing phase with the use of antioxidants, iron, calcium, amino acids, Minoxidil, for 2-4 months before the hair transplant. Follow the same immediately after the hair transplant.
