Should I cut my hair? (Hair Loss)



Recommended Posts

I too have lost a lot of hair. I have fine hair in the first place, and surgery has not helped.

I do use the wet brush. I love it! I also only wash my hair twice a week. Dry Shampoo is my friend. I have an appointment Friday for hair extensions. I am hopeful I have enough hair to do extensions for six months or so. I also am hopeful that they will not do any harm to what hair I have left. I guess I will see on Friday. Wish me luck!

I bit the bullet and had mine cut two days ago.
I got my extensions out 4 weeks ago for a neck/face lift.
A week later my hair started coming out in hand fulls (right about the 4 month sleeve post op mark). I’ll try to post a before and after cut. The before will be without extensions or Neck lift! :). The after will be The day of cut and 4 weeks after neck lift. :)

You look so nice! The haircut suits you, and the lift is fantastic. You don't look different or pulled tight, you look younger and fresher, like you got a few nights of perfect sleep and just went on a spa vacation. Your surgeon is excellent. Great thing to treat yourself to after working hard to lose the weight.

@Swanton_Bomb Thank you so much! I specifically asked my surgeon not to turn back time. I just wanted the turkey neck tightened and the jowls lifted. Basically a lift from the nose line down. He, did, however, need to lift everything up lightly to accomplish this.  I am so pleased that he left me looking like me with my many of my wrinkles. I still look like a lady of 53. Just a less flappy version.

@FluffyChix. My facial surgeon is Dr. Jordan Rihani of FacialPlasticSurguryInstitute.com located in Southlake, Fort Worth and Keller. If he’s not local for folks, he’s certainly worth traveling. His staff and facilities are outstanding.

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
