Is Hair Loss Normal After Having Cosmetic Surgery?
I had an upper and lower eyelid lift under deep sedation(not general anesthesia) in June of this year. I love my results!! However, about a month later I noticed my hair felt dry and brittle and when I washed it, it seemed a lot would come out. Things seemed to calm down, but then in late August until now, it has only gotten worse. I have(had) really thick naturally curly hair. I have never been able to see my scalp at all and now it seems I am seeing more and more of it, and I am getting really stressed. I have had blood work and everything is normal.
I am just curious if anyone else has experienced hair loss after cosmetic surgery? My plastic surgeon told me it is more common with general anesthesia, than with deep sedation. My GP thinks it is from stress and that it will grow back once I go through the "cycle". Thanks for any suggestions and comments.
