Does transplanting on thinning hair cause shock loss?

Recommended Posts

I heard about shock loss, where if hair is transplanted around thinning hair this can cause the thinning hair to fallout and will not come back making you look balder.

is this true?

Dr Erdogan and other surgeons seems to transplant hair on paitents where they already have hair and they seem to turn out fine and with some great results

so I don’t know what to believe

Always advisable to start Finasteride months before a hair transplant to strengthen miniaturised/thinning hair and reduce the chances of shock loss.

It is the diffused hair that is at the highest risk of shock loss.
