I am worried about Shock loss from a Hair Transplant

I am a candidate for a hair transplant but i don’t want to use finasterade or minoxidil. A surgeon told me that the transplanted hair would create a shock loss to my existing hair and speed up hair loss. Is this true? What happens in shock loss?

When you have a hair transplant, the native hair that is going through some degree of miniaturization could speed up the miniaturization process even to the point where the hair will fall out. Finasteride can protect against this process, not minoxidil. I personally believe that this is secondary to the local anesthetic and the stress of the surgery on your body, regardless of if you feel any stress.. Carefully and judicious use of your donor hair is a critical that your surgeon must fully not only understand, but implement it in how he approaches you with a Personalized Master Plan going forward with a hair transplant. You should know what is your worst case scenario, and plan for it so that there will be no surprises.
