This topic is also discussed in this post: Hair Loss After Gastric Surgery.
To reduce the hair loss after a gastric bypass surgery, you need to stick to your doctor’s diet recommendations that will help you to maintain your minerals, vitamins, and proteins at an optimal level. Patients need to be tested for several factors including vitamin B12 after the surgery on a regular basis. This helps your doctor to diagnose the deficiencies and treat them promptly before they can affect your hair. Stress can also cause hair loss and these surgeries bring on some stress.
