Hair loss after sleeve gastrectomy surgery is a very common situation (70%). Hair loss usually starts in the second or third month and can continue up to the eighth or ninth month. Hair loss stops when the speed of losing weight slows down or when losing weight stops. Most of the shed hair comes back after weight loss stops.
Some measures can be taken to reduce hair loss. Multivitamin pills given by your doctor should be used regularly after surgery. We should use protein supplements as needed in our post-operative diet. Again, postoperative B 12, Folic acid, zinc, and iron values should be checked regularly, and any deficiencies that may occur in these should be corrected.
If the hair loss is disturbing the person too much, hair mesotherapy can be taken as another measure. It should be remembered that hair loss after gastric sleeve surgery is not permanent but temporary. The more regularly you do your doctor’s controls after the operation, the less your hair loss will be.
