Can I Get Hair Transplants Two Months Before My Custom Facial Implant Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I may get a hair grafting procedure two months before my custom facial implant surgery with you. Do you have any objections to that?

A: That is really a question for the hair transplant surgeon as to whether this major facial surgery may stress the newly implanted hairs. It would make more sense to me to do it afterwards when a major surgery/anesthesia stressor on the body will be over. It is known that such systemic stressors can adversely affect hair growth or even cause shedding.
