What is Shock Hair Loss?
Shock shedding is an event that occurs between the 2nd and 8 th week after hair transplantation. Shock shedding is the temporary loss of transplanted hair follicles. Shock shedding occurs after every hair transplant.
Therefore, patients should not smell the odor due to shock shedding. After the shock shedding, the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow.
A few months after the operation, your natural and permanent hair begins to grow.
Why Does Shock Loss Occur After Hair Transplantation?
Shock loss after hair transplantation is a natural and expected process that occurs in almost every hair transplant. During hair transplant, hair follicles are collected from the donor area. Then, channels are opened in the area to be transplanted and the hair follicles are transferred to these channels. The displacement of the hair follicles is considered a trauma in the body.
Although the hair restoration process is harmless,. it takes time for the hair follicles to adapt to their new places .
In this case, hair follicles take themselves under protection. As a result, while the hair follicles remain under the skin in the balding area where transplantation is performed, they break and fall out in the upper part.
Shock shedding is a natural and expected process seen in every hair transplant procedure. The hair accepts the displacement of the hair follicles as trauma and starts to fall out as a defense mechanism. However, shortly after the shock shedding, the roots under the skin begin to grow.
When Does Shock Hair Loss Start?
Shock hair loss occurs between 2 and 8 weeks after a hair transplant. Shock shedding can occur at different times depending on the person’s head structure. In shock hair loss, approximately 80% of the hair is lost.
When Does Hair Start to Grow After Shock Loss?
It takes an average of 1-2 months for the hair to grow after shock hair loss. In this process, the sparse and thin hair begins to grow from the 4th month. By the end of the sixth month,80 % of the hair becomes visible. In addition, a 1-year period must be completed for the hair transplant process to end completely.
Hair with a dense and healthy appearance will appear completely at the end of 1 year. The hair loss rate is very low after hair transplantation. However, if you have had a hair transplant at a young age, there is a possibility that the hair may fall out again as you get older.
