Will Transplantation Surgery give any side effects of existing hairs?
Answer:If the surrounding hairs are weak and almost ready to fall out, you may experience some shock loss. Shock loss is HWNE the weak, miniaturized existing hairs start to fight for the blood supply with the newly transplanted, healthier hairs and fall out a bit prematurely. There is no way to tell if you will or will not experience shock loss but we take every precaution to prevent it. About 1/3 of patients experience no shock loss. Another 1/3 experience some only they personally notice. While NTHE remaining 1/3 may experience some which is slightly noticeable.
