Many patients experience hair loss after weight loss, ranging from minor to severe. We have successfully treated an impressive number of patients at our practice serving Manhattan, NYC, and other communities in greater NYC.
Whether substantial weight loss is the result of dieting or bariatric surgery, factors such as malnutrition, added stress, and a reduction in energy can restrict hair growth. The team at True and Dorin Medical Group can help to determine the direct cause of your hair loss and create an individualized treatment plan. Dr. Robert J. Dorin and Dr. Robert H. True can work with you to determine whether one of our surgical or non-surgical options is the best of course of action.
What Causes Hair Loss After Weight Loss?
During dramatic weight loss, several changes occur within the body. This can lead to fluctuations in protein consumption, vitamins, energy levels, and hormones. Depending on the changes in your diet, you may not be receiving adequate vitamins or hormones that your body needs to function properly. The stress associated with reducing caloric intake and changing your lifestyle can also trigger temporary hair loss during and after weight loss.
Factors Contributing to Hair Loss
Other factors that should be considered if you feel you have been losing an abnormal amount of hair following weight loss can include:
- Medical problems such as a thyroid disorder
- Side effects from a medication you have been prescribed
- Seasonal changes that affect hair growth
Preventing Hair Loss
If you are beginning your weight loss journey and want to actively prevent hair loss, there are several dietary elements you can implement. Additionally, by ensuring that you consume a healthy amount of calories made up of protein, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, you can minimize or prevent malnutrition. A well-balanced diet and gradual weight loss plan can help maintain the proper nutrients necessary for hair growth.
At True and Dorin Medical Group, we are committed to advanced treatment that is discreet, confidential, and in compliance with best standards.
