Can A Hair Transplant Cause Thinning?March 5th, 2010
Q: If you transplant grafts in between the thinned out areas, is there a risk of cutting previously normal roots, even if one is cautious?
A: Healthy hair can be temporarily shocked from a hair transplant and then shed (the process is called telogen effluvium) but it will not be permanently damaged.
Any healthy hair that is lost in this shedding process should re-grow.Related Posts:
