(female) Hi. I am a pre-op for gastric bypass surgery. I understand that hair loss is a common effect of gastric bypass surgery. Is there anything that I can do now to get ready for this? I have thin hair to begin with. Is biotin helpful? Thanks.
Hair loss and weight loss go hand in hand. Speak with a dietician to come up with the best balanced diet for you. You may suffer from hair loss as long as the weight loss continues, and as this is a consequence of the surgery there may be little for you to do once you focus on your best diet through professional help.
