The hair will now continue to grow and develop throughout the patient’s life and can be cut and shaped as desired. Standard shampoos and other hair care products are sufficient.

Shock Shedding After Hair Transplantation

Hair Growth Stage After Hair Transplantation Another issue that frightens people who have hair transplantation is shock shedding. The sudden loss of the transplanted hair and the rashes in this area, perforated scalp, sparse hair strand appearance may frighten patients You are likely to experience hair loss in the third week of the hair transplant operation. Although this spill scares you, we consider it normal and it is a temporary process. Although there is no exact date for how long it will take, we would like to say that the spills last up to 45 days. It is a fact that the severity and duration of this spill differs in each person. In some of our patients, it sheds completely within 7-14 days and goes through the renewal process. In some patients, this situation continues for 1-2 months. Shock Loss Donor Area

Causes Shock Spill?

The main reason of this process, which we define as temporary hair loss after hair transplantation, is the growth cycle of the hair follicle and the short-term shock experienced by the transplantation process. However, this process is quite normal. Each hair strand has 3 phases as “Growth, Pause and Shedding”. Hair follicles begin a new growth phase for a new hair hair immediately after the shedding phase. One of the most important factors of shock loss is the coping of this cycle. Immediately after the shedding process, the hair follicles move into their other stages and the natural cycle begins again.

Factors Affecting Shock Loss:

  • Hair structure of the person,
  • Growth cycle with hair follicles,
  • Having a thin leather structure,
  • Duration of roots waiting outside,
  • Whether the root is kept from the living part during planting,
  • The temperature of the environment where the roots are kept,
  • Correct management of the post-transplant process,
  • Nutrition and stress after transplantation,
  • Frequent graft cultivation may increase temporary shedding.

When Does Shock Shedding Begin?

After the hair transplant steps; Temporary hair loss may occur with new transplantation in areas with intense hair loss. It is a completely natural reaction. Although there is no need to worry, the hair transplant specialist will be informed about shock loss before the procedure. Shock loss does not occur in every patient at the same time. The clear range is between the first 1 and 3 months.

It is seen in some patients in the second week and in some patients it can be observed earlier or later. Shock shedding is experienced only once after hair transplantation. After shock shedding, it is not possible to lose hair again or experience sparseness. Shock spills may not be the same in every patient. While it progresses severely in some, 10%, in others it is much higher. Shock spills do not have alarming qualities, on the contrary, they are the harbingers of the new hair strand. When Does Hair Grow After FUE?

How Many Days After Hair Transplantation?

The first 10 days, which we consider critical and important, we need to be very careful. The reason for this is that we can show the adaptation process of grafts to new places. When the grafts complete a 10-day process in a healthy way, it becomes difficult for them to move. Manual hair correction, small touches do not damage the grafts when the first 10 days process is completed in a healthy way.

Of course, you have to wait a few more days after the first 10-day critical period for the grafts to remove the skin. However, after the 10-day process is over, you will feel a little better. You should stay away from sports activities such as head movements, head ball and melee training. However, you can return to normal sports activities at the end of the 10th day. Roots are poured in an average of 30 or 45 days. Hair production starts again in 3-4 months. However, these times are general times. The way you care for your hair depends on the factors you show in your own diet. Hair Growth Stage After Hair Transplantation
