Can Anesthesia Cause Hair Loss?

Anesthesia Cause Hair Loss

Doctors use anesthesia in surgeries to ease the process and reduce patient pain. Some patients associate anesthesia with potential hair loss, but it’s unproven.

Anesthesia might relate to pressure alopecia and telogen effluvium. Prolonged scalp pressure during procedures can cause localized hair loss due to pressure alopecia. Long heart surgeries using heart-lung machines can affect hair growth. Reduced blood flow and anesthesia can disrupt cell division, resulting in hair thinning.

Acute stress from illnesses or surgery can trigger telogen effluvium hair loss. Chronic diseases, pregnancy, or significant lifestyle changes can trigger telogen effluvium hair loss. Surgery stress, not just anesthesia, often causes telogen effluvium. Many patients mistakenly blame anesthesia for hair loss, despite lacking solid evidence.

If you have experienced hair loss after a procedure or are simply looking for a fuller-looking head of hair, the scalp micropigmentation experts of Hairline Ink are here to help you with your hair restoration needs. By injecting small amounts of pigment into the scalp, scalp micropigmentation can help both men and women affected by hair thinning make their hair look fuller, and for men that are bald can help to achieve a clean-shaven look that is maintenance-free.
