QUESTION: Hi Dr Jones I have had two hair transplants in the past. The second one was 6 months ago and my doctor has suggested that I get additional grafts in the temple area. I am wondering though if these new grafts could destroy by way of shock loss the newly grown hair from my recent transplant? I am already on propecia for treatment of the shock loss.
ANSWER: Thanks for your question. I would definitely suggest speaking about this with your doctor. He should be able to provide answers for you ! Definitely the shock loss from your transplant 6 months ago should be well over. Although we can attempt to prevent shock loss with the use of propecia it is not always in 100% of cases successful. It is therefore possible that you could loose some of the hair from the previous transplant in the temple area from shock loss caused by the new grafts.
