Can you damage grafts if you try and pack em to tight?
I had my 3rd session done in my front in Jan of 05. Several weeks later I started losing grafts from years ago.
I was completely bald on top when I first started doing transplants years ago.
Now I have lost at least 50% of my transplanted hair even in areas that they didn't work in. It has been 9 months. My hair looked thicker before I did my session in January.
I have noticed the hair is very fine in some areas.

Shock loss will occur within 3 weeks after the surgery. If the grafts fell out after that then it is not shock loss. It could be a number of things which we could not know without an examination.
We would welcome an opportunity for one of our doctors to examine you to discover the underlying cause.
