For a hairline lowering procedure via transplant on a female with NO hair loss, is shock loss just as likely? Does Rogaine help?

I would not typically expect any shock loss in the situation you describeTypically miniturized hair associated with hair loss is more vulnerable to shock loss. Rogaine however would be helpful to hedge your bet and can cause no harm. The foam works well. Start a few weeks prior to the HT and use it for the next 3 months.
An alternative to HT is a formal forehead reduction.
