Why does hair loss occur following surgery and how can I prevent it?

Sometimes, rapid weight loss – such as occurs following weight loss surgery – results in a lowered intake of protein and zinc. In turn, this can cause some weight loss surgery patients to lose some hair following their procedures. That’s why we recommend that our patients consume adequate amounts of a protein daily and also take a daily zinc supplement. Our weight loss team will work with you to recommend the appropriate supplements and vitamins to take following surgery.
