There are essentially three ways in which surgery can trigger a Telogen Effluvium outbreak. The first cause could be the anesthetic that was used during the procedure. The second is the trauma that was inflicted upon your body during the surgery and the recovery process. And the third cause could be the medications that were used before, during or after your surgery to treat your medical condition.

You have to keep in mind that a surgical procedure puts a tremendous amount of stress on your body and could very well be considered a trauma, especially in more extreme procedures (i.e. transplants or removals of infected tissues or organs). Also, either the medications that you are currently on (or were on around the time of your surgery) as well as the anesthetic that was used could have caused an allergic reaction that led to your sudden hair loss.

If you believe that your Telogen Effluvium might be caused by an allergic reaction to your medications or even to the anesthetic, it’s best to discuss this with your doctor so that they are able to determine the best course of action.
