What Causes Hair Loss After Surgery?
- Nervous system. Sensory nerves around the hair follicles become stressed during the surgery and release a neuropeptide known as substance P. Normally associated with pain transmission, substance P is also responsible for stress-related hair loss.
- Hormonal imbalance. Surgery-induced stress creates a hormonal imbalance that leads to thinning and balding on your scalp. During the surgery, your body’s adrenal glands release cortisol. Also known as your “fight or flight” hormone, it causes your body to tense up, and the blood vessels surrounding your hair follicles constrict. This vasoconstriction leads to hair loss.
