Shedding

Shedding usually starts at about 1 weeks, can be 2-3 weeks and some or all of he grafts will shed and then return at 4-6 months.

Your transplanted hairs will likely shed over the next few weeks. If you are having issues, it is best to contact your doctor.

Shed

The extent of shed can vary from person to person so it is very hard to predict.  The main thing is that you follow the after care instructions.
