Can Shock from a Hair Transplant Cause Loss of Healthy Hair?November 1st, 2005
Q: Will the shock of a hair transplant make me lose my existing healthy hair and is it permanent?
A: In general, only miniaturized hair (the hair that is affected by androgens and that has begun to decrease in diameter) is shed after a transplant. This hair would be lost in the near term anyway.
Existing healthy hair is unlikely to shed, but if it were shed, you could expect it to grow back.Related Posts:
