Hair loss after bariatric surgery is very common. The hair loss associated with bariatric surgery is called telogen effluvium and has to do with the normal hair growth cycle. It usually starts abruptly and very seldom lasts longer than 6 months. 1) Relax and don’t worry. It is natural hair loss of 5-15% of your hair due to the stress of surgery and weight loss. It rarely lasts more than 6 months. It grows back. 2) Take a bariatric specific multi-vitamin with adequate B vitamins, folate, zinc and biotin. Don’t forget your B12 and calcium citrate with vitamin D supplements. 3) Avoid excessive vitamin A and high dose zinc supplements they are both potentially harmful. Add iron if you are iron deficient 4) get yourself evaluated for any underlying pathology like thyroid dysfunction or nutritional deficiency. You can use minoxidil therapy as this drug stimulate hair growth. Consult your treating doctor for the same.

Hi Lybrate User, You don't need surgery to lose weight. Just few steps and you can live a healthy life. The two essentials to maintaining a healthy weight are: Eating well & Moving often. Increasing activity in order to lose weight If your doctor recommends that you lose weight, there’s a simple rule to follow: move more, eat less and make smarter food choices. Gradually increase your level of physical activity beyond 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, lower the number of calories you take in and eat a healthy diet. Once you’re at your goal weight, you can then determine which dietary and fitness choices work best for maintaining your weight.
