Shock Loss?

In my case, there was none noticeable, since my donor hair was placed onto a completely bald dome; there was no exisiting hair to shock!

 

Except along the edges of course, where the grafted hair meets the sides and back of the head, but since my sugery last May, I've not noticed any problem at all. Another of the advantages of being a NW5 to start with ( and going to a top clinic )

If you have a noticeable degree of shock loss it can become evident as early as 1 month post-op and, depending on the degree of loss, can be visible for about 6 months post-op. The donor area is no exception to this.

 

I was lucky enough to have very minor shock loss. I noticed it at around week 8 in the recipient area and week 10 in the donor. Being consistent with minoxidil in the recipient area and just waiting it out paid off for me. I did nothing for the donor area.
