Everything You Need To Know About Shock Hair Loss After Hair Transplants

Hair Transplant Shock Loss – You may be reading this article because you or someone close to you is experiencing shock hair loss.

Shock Hair Loss, also known as shock loss, is a condition that can affect people after hair transplants. It is a rare condition that affects a small selection of patients. According to a recent study, 5% of patients undergoing hair restoration may experience shock loss. There are many factors behind this shock loss. According to SHIFT Hair Transplant, it is possible to moderate these factors with the right medication, diet and lifestyle.

What is Shock Hair Loss?

Shock loss is the “loss” of natural hair from a “donor area” or “recipient area” after a hair transplantation treatment. In most cases, shock loss is not exclusively present in one type of procedure. Both FUT and FUE treatments can result in shock hair loss. However, it is more common in the recipient area. Experts state that shock hair loss is a result of trauma, and either chemical or physical bodies can induce this. Some shock loss patients experience exposure to both chemical and physical factors. Hair Transplant Shock Loss

Chemical trauma can occur with the use of certain medicines. These include products containing lidocaine, Marcaine and epinephrine. If a patient experiences exposure to these chemicals for more than 12 hours, they are likely to experience shock hair loss. The patients will experience numbness in the donor/recipient area, and after a few days, the hair will start to fall from these regions. Physical trauma includes factors such as damaged tissue or a poorly maintained scalp. If the patient undergoes poor suturing methods, they can also experience shock hair loss.

A Temporary Condition?

Luckily, shock hair loss is generally a temporary, reversible issue. In just a few short months, hair should regrow in the affected area. However, the patient must work with his or her family and improve his or her lifestyle! They must not be exposed to this chemical or physical trauma again. Hair Transplant Shock Loss

A Permanent Condition?

Finally, shock hair loss can occur around the grafts and can sometimes present itself as a result of the incision procedure. This procedure involves preparing spaces for the grafts. The incision tool can traumatize the follicles by cutting or crushing them. However, if you approach experienced clinics such as SHIFT hair transplant, you will not have to worry about this problem.

Crushed and cut follicles are, in fact, a significant area in terms of shock hair loss. If the follicles are permanently damaged, shock hair loss may return after three months. On the whole, shock hair loss is rare during hair transplant in Turkey. Provided that you approach the right clinic, it is not something that should particularly trouble you.
