Hi everyone, 

I got my hair transplant(FUE method with a surgeon) like 50 + days back. Around 4000 grafts. Earlier I was Norwood 6. 

I started seeing shock loss on my recipient and donor area. 

Few questions.

1) Donor area skin is peeling off, is it normal? 

2) How bad does the donor area shock loss look like? Is it permanent or temporary? 

3) How bad does the recipient area shock loss look like? Is it permanent or temporary? 

Please refer screenshots below for reference. (Do let me know if you need more info)

Donor area, shock loss happened on 15th day


Shock loss in recipient area. Native and transplanted area lost and this bald spot is visible. Shock loss here around after 40 days.

Shock loss is normal you have to wait 3-4 months before you assess your donor/recipient again, don't think too much about it, it should heal in a few months.

Bummer on the shock-loss.  It does happen but just be patient.  You will see great dividends everywhere in 3-4 more months.

@JohnCasper @lovinitl9 @Abi28 Thanks for your responses. I am being patient and waiting for the next 3-4 month. 

I had few other questions If you folks can help me on that 

1) Would you recommend PRP injections for fast hair regrowth ? Or is it just a myth that PRP helps?

2) Would you recommend Head full head massage for blood circulation or any other advantages?

3) Should I apply minoxidil to the donor hair loss site? I use the 5% minoxidil once at night application as recommended by my clinic. 

Any other tips/suggestions/recommendations to regrow hair at shock loss site and recipient site will be appreciated. Thanks!
