Following your hair transplant, you can usually expect to see what’s known as ‘shock loss’. This can occur anywhere from 3 weeks after your surgery to 2 months, and will cause your transplanted hairs to fall out while the hair follicles are in their temporary rest phase after the procedure. 

There’s no need to be concerned if this does occur, as it’s a totally normal part of the hair transplant procedure. As this happens, you’ll start to notice your new hair is significantly thicker than before, and after around 6 to 10 months you’ll notice an impressive difference since the procedure. Usually you’ll be able to appreciate the full extent of your hair transplant after around a year, although if the transplant was performed on the top of your head it may take a little longer.

Follicular Unit Transplantation and Follicular Unit Extraction are the two most popular forms of hair transplant, and they work as follows:


— FUT: For Follicular Unit Transplantation, a small strip of scalp at the back of the head will be cut and removed, before being separated into smaller pieces. These small pieces will then be planted back into small holes created in areas of the scalp where your hair is thinning, and the excision site is stitched back up.


— FUE: With Follicular Unit Extraction, hair follicles are instead removed and placed individually, without the need for any grafting of the scalp.

As is the case with any other surgical procedures, you’ll likely feel some degree of pain after the surgery is complete. During the procedure however you’ll be under local anaesthetic, so at most you’ll feel only a slight prickly sensation before the anaesthetic fully kicks in.


Many consider the FUT technique to be somewhat more painful than the FUE technique. This will be due to the way in which the FUT technique requires a strip of the scalp to be removed during the procedure. There may also be some degree of muscle pain that arises after the surgery too, due to how you’ll be laying in the same position for a long time during surgery.


You’ll likely be given some painkillers following your procedure to help subside any pain or discomfort, and you can avoid additional pain by not placing any stress on your head for a few days.


There are a few side effects that can occur after a hair transplant, including the following:

— Bleeding: Due to the mild texture of skin on the scalp, some degree of bleeding can occur following a hair transplant

— Failure of procedure: Failure of procedure is a situation wherein the scalp doesn’t take to the newly transplanted grafts. While this is a rare occurrence, it’s nevertheless a serious one if it does occur. In the event that it does, further surgery will be required.

— Infection: It’s possible that the site of the replanted follicles could become infected. Infection or inflammation of the follicles is known as folliculitis, and if this does occur then in some cases it can be treated easily with creams or gels. It can become uncontrollable however, and if it does then you’ll need to consult a medical professional as soon as possible.

— Numbness: Numbness is a side effect of a hair transplant that will likely pop up around the area the scalp strip was taken from during a FUT procedure, and it could last for a while. If it’s been 8 or 9 weeks and the numbness still hasn’t subsided then you’ll want to consult a doctor as soon as you can.

— Shock loss: Shortly after your hair transplant you’ll experience a temporary loss of the transplanted hair. This is completely normal, and the hair will grow back. In fact, those who experience shock loss often see more growth over time than those that don’t


— Swollen scalp: Due to the way in which grafts are taken from and replanted around a patient’s scalp, the areas of the incisions and planted follicles can become swollen. While it will differ from patient to patient, you can usually expect any swelling to subside within around 3 to 5 days.

Patients aged between 20 and 50 years of age will be the best suited to a hair transplant, although it’s likely to be more successful the older you are. Hair loss and growth patterns can be more irregular at a younger age, and if you were to have a hair transplant in your 20s then you may end up experiencing further hair loss by the time you reach your 40s and require more surgery. For this reason, it’s not usually recommended that anyone under the age of 20 undergo hair transplant surgery, although there’s no upper age limit, health permitting.

It’s usually recommended that patients take around 3 days to a week away from work to recover from their hair transplant. While the vast majority of procedures are completed within a single day, you’ll still need to be incredibly careful for the first 2 weeks since your newly transplanted hair still won’t be fully secure.

In order to avoid nudging any of your grafts, you’ll likely be required to sleep upright for a few days following your procedure, along with sticking to button-up clothing you don’t need to pull over your head. It’s also recommended that you avoid any strenuous activities such as exercise for at least a week

Your hair transplant will provide permanent results, since the transplanted hairs will be genetically resistant to balding. It cannot, however, prevent the rest of the hair on your head from thinning out and balding over time. This is why the procedure is better suited to those who are older, as a hair loss pattern will likely have already been established

The only major scarring you’ll have to contend with will be at the back of the head, and that’s only if you undergo the Follicular Unit Transplantation procedure. This will only be small and barely noticeable however, and your hair will cover it up anyway. Any other scarring at the recipient areas will be so small it will be virtually invisible to the untrained eye


While it’s unlikely that you’ll be required to shave your head before your hair transplant, there’ll probably be some cutting required during the procedure. With the FUT, your surgeon will likely need to shave a patch of your hair in order to cut out the patch of scalp necessary to make the graft. But by keeping your hair long, you can effectively camouflage the treatment areas with your remaining hair, and hide your stitches and healing scars. Additionally, by leaving some length to your hair, your doctor is also provided with a greater sense of the extent of your hair loss, and can work with the scalp more effectively to create a plan for your hair transplant.

When it comes to FUE transplants, some clinics will require the entire head is shaved before undergoing the procedure. Patients should be sure to check this with their clinic in advance
