Hair loss in men is a common and reasonably well understood phenomenon. More importantly, it is now more socially acceptable for men to go bald, with the ‘shaven’ look garnering general acceptability. This is certainly not the case with women.
Last week I had a consultation with a patient that asked me the question “What is good FUE?” It was an interesting question, and in the current landscape of hair restoration surgery; a valid one. It is certainly a question that is not asked often enough.
Shock loss is defined as the temporary loss of healthy existing hairs due to surgical trauma and can occur both in the donor and recipient areas. Shock loss can also occur in the donor region as well and exists in both FUT and FUE procedures.
