Shock Phase, Shock Loss or Shedding

As we have noted above, the shock phase, also known as telogen effluvium, refers to the hair loss experienced by patients undergoing hair transplants. This is a normal process so it is not considered a problem. Since the hair follicles go from the development stage to the telogen stage after surgery, the hair falls out at this time.
