Does surgery like tummy tuck and liposuction can speed the alopecia process?

Due to stress of surgery, a person with hair loss can be affected even more a few months after the procedure? How to prevent this to occur?

Thank you for sharing your excellent question.  Due to the stress that any procedure places on the body temporary alopecia can occur.  As your body begins the healing process your normal hair growth will continue and in most cases will return you to your former hair appearance.  Hope this help.s
