Shock-Hair Loss after Hair Transplant - Shock-Hair Loss alias shock loss is a phenomenon that happens to people after hair transplants. This is a rare condition that affects some patients. According to a recent study, 5% of patients who undergo hair restoration may experience shock loss. There are so many reasons behind the shock loss. According to SHIFT Hair Transplant, these reasons can be fixed with the right medications, diet and lifestyle.

Good blood flow to the scalp the main factor to remain healthy hair.

What is Shock Hair Loss?

By definition, Shock loss is the “loss” of natural hair from a “donor area” or “recipient area” after a hair transplantation procedure. In most cases, shock loss is not restricted to a specific procedure. Both FUT and FUE surgeries can result in shock hair loss. However, the loss is more common in the recipient area. According to experts, shock hair loss occurs due to a trauma. This trauma can be induced by chemical or physical bodies. Some shock loss patients are exposed to both chemical and physical traumas. Chemical trauma happens with the use of certain medicines. This includes medications with lidocaine, Marcaine and epinephrine. If a patient is exposed to these chemicals for more than 12 hours, they are likely to experience shock hair loss. The patients experience numbness in the donor/recipient area. After few days, hair starts to fall from these regions.                Physical trauma could be anything like a damaged tissue or poorly maintained scalp. If the patient undergoes poor suturing methods, they can experience shock hair loss.

A Temporary Condition?

Luckily, shock hair loss is not a permanent issue. The condition is reversible. In just a few short months, hair would regrow in the affected area. But, the patient has to work with his/her family and improve his/her lifestyle! They must not be exposed to the chemical or physical trauma again.

A Permanent Condition?

Finally, shock hair loss can happen around the grafts. This happens with the incision procedure. During the incision process, places are prepared for the grafts. The incision tool can traumatize the follicles by cutting or crushing them. When you approach experienced clinics like SHIFT hair transplant, you don’t have to worry about this problem. Yet, crushed and cut follicles are a great spot for shock hair loss. If the follicles are permanently damaged, shock hair loss may return after 3 months. On the whole, shock hair loss is rare during hair transplant in Turkey. When you approach the right clinic, you really don’t have to worry about it.
