When did you start losing hair?



Recommended Posts

Luckly for us that had surgery in the summer, by the time Hair loss stage rolls around it will be totally normal to throw on a cute stocking cap for fall/winter.

Mine started at 3 months out. I'm 4 months out now and still losing. I take my multi Vitamins plus Biotin i also wash my hair with nioxin level 4 since before surgery. I'm hoping it lets up soon i have already thin hair from PCOS . i just have to wait it out i guess 😭

I'm just about 2 months out and I noticed Saturday that I've pretty much lost all of my upper and lower eyelashes. Ugh. Thus said, some of mine might be thyroid related...but I kind of doubt it.

It took Three months for me! It does stop though. Hang in there. Stressing might only make it worse.

As far as I’m aware, I only lost hair on my head.

Between 2 1/2 and 3 months post op. It’s really shedding a lot now (3 1/2 months) and I’m kind of freaking out about it.

I guess I noticed Hair loss about 3 months out. I still have thick hair so I wasn't affected by it too much. When I'm washing my hair, I can sometimes see strands falling out... a little scary but I'm trying different shampoos to see if it'll help.

This isnt a deciding factor for me at preop currently. I am worried about it happening to me but im preparing myself emotionally for it and my doctor recommended some supplements if it happens

It stopped at around 6 months. I noticed a tiny bit of regrowth at around 8 months. That was a very good day! My hair is growing back pretty fast which I mostly attribute to all the Vitamins and Water.

Yes, for me it started around three and a half months post-op. It's not too bad though. I have PCOS and I've seen worse than this. My hair was already thin and fragile before sleeve and I plan to make some changes for some time already.
