Lack of follow-through is sort of "relaxing" the concentration on holding the gun on aimed point on the target. This allows the muzzle to drop - the start of the drop being often before the trigger is actually released - or the bullet has cleared the barrel - leading to hitting low.

While recoil will upset the sight picture, correct follow-through is sort of like shooting, and imagining the gun will not recoil - and that you are going to hold it with sights aligned on the precise aimed point on the target for a second or two after the gun has fired. Of course the gun in recoil will upset all this - but holding with follow-through as such eliminates any chance of muzzle drop before the trigger is released and the bullet is clear of the barrel.
