After hair loss from bariatric surgery, in most cases hair will begin to regrow and return to its normal fullness and thickness once your body weight and eating pattern have stabilized. On average, hair will regrow and return to its previous thickness within 18 months.

While it may not be possible to prevent hair loss after bariatric surgery, following a diet recommended by your doctor can help reduce shedding. Good nutrition, taking supplements prescribed by your doctor and getting regular blood work to detect nutritional deficiencies can help minimize hair loss.
