I have thin hair and soon will have bariatric surgery. I am worried about hair loss. I will follow my doctor to the letter, however is there something else I can do to minimize hair loss?
It seem like you have a conflict in choosing the lesser of two evils — lose weight or lose hair. I do not know the answer to your dilemma.
Bariatric surgery does not necessarily cause hair loss in everyone that has it done, but it is a possibility. I do not know of anything that can minimize that chance, though.
