i have noticed that alot of my native side hairs have thinnes out after a month and a half from the transplant >> i have contacted the doctor and she told me its normal shock loss and it can occurs in the sides near the area we harvested the grafts from..
is that trure that shock loss can occurs in the sides hair after FUE?

It was definitely true for me. I thought I was over harvested starting just at the top of my ears then going down vertically just behind my ears. After 4 months or so it started filling back in and looking normal again.

Shock loss can occur in any part of a scalp after any procedure.

Oh it can happen alright !

This is shock loss in the donor region i experienced many moons ago with my first ever FUE session..


Happy to say it took 5 months to come back !

OMG Spex, I thought mine was bad and it was like 1/4 of that. I didn't even know it could get that bad. Glad it grew back for you!

Spex thanks for sharing. We have seen it this bad in rare cases and it is good for patients to share such experience. It takes a lot of reassuring on our end to help patients get through extreme cases like this. FUE or FUT or any surgery can produce dramatic shock loss. Patience is key.
