View Full Version : Shock Loss

04-07-2013, 11:07 PM

Here is my story and could use some advice. I had 2 procedures with Bosley in 2004 and 2008. Both were outstanding. I am pretty sure all the hair that shocked out was previously grafted hair. My entire frontal 1/3 is all grafted hair. I had a procedure with Dr. Niedbalski in Seattle for 1500 grafts 3.5 months ago. Have heard mixed reviews on him. Also had PRP injections at the same time. The result has been catastrophic. I will post following pics:

1) Before picture-east to tell because I have the most hair (Keep in mind its almost all previously grafted hair)

2) 3 weeks post op picture-again easy to tell as its catastrophic. I mean I can barely look at it.

3) 1.5 month picture still bad but settled down

4) right now picture-still bad fuller in some spots but thinning has stretched to other areas

At 3.5 months am I know just entering the phase where shockloss regrowth should start or should I be much further along?

Also do the pictures look like I have improved at all? I stare at them so much my vantage point is skewed.

Also been on Propecia/Finastride for 8-10 years

Started Rogaine in Shock Loss areas only 3 weeks after surgery

I agree that you did have a lot of shock loss. However, it does look like it is improving and should continue to improve over the next several months.
