Shock Loss After Second Hair Transplant

shock lossShock loss after a second hair transplant

Q:

I am considering a second procedure in a few months for additional coverage in my mid-to-crown area, will the frontal area (my first procedure) be affected with ‘shock loss’ during the healing process of the second procedure?

Thanks again for your replies.

A:

Transplanted hair from a previous surgery won’t be affected as native hair to a second hair transplant procedure, however, the surgeon should be extremely careful with transplanting into the area that has already been transplanted. We at Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration use special devices and needles to minimize the transaction rate of preexisting hair follicles.  Some loss of the transplanted hair may be seen when we transplant to thicken up the already transplanted area, but it will be reversible as opposed to the permanence of shock loss.
