Hair loss after gastric surgery
It is common to suffer from hair lossafter gastric surgery such as gastric bypass and gastric sleeve. Hair loss is partly due to the stress on the body after surgery.
Gastric bypass and gastric sleeve are stomach operations for obesity. Gastric bypass involves disconnecting most of the stomach and part of the small intestine so that food does not pass through those parts. A gastric sleeve is a procedure in which a large part of the stomach is removed and made into a narrow tube.
Stomach surgery puts the body under a lot of stress, which contributes to the disruption of hormones. Hormonal imbalances are a factor in hair loss after gastric bypass or gastric sleeve surgery.
Another reason for hair loss is that the body’s absorption of nutrients is impaired as the stomach is reduced. This leads to vitamin deficiency, which is a contributing factor to hair loss.
Treatment with PRPcan reduce hair loss and contribute to increased hair growth, so you can regain your fine, strong hair after gastric surgery. A PRP treatment involves injecting your own blood plasma with growth factors into the scalp, therefore the treatment is completely free of side effects and complications.
