Good afternoon,

I'm 3.5 post-op and am 54 years old. I've had acne my whole life. I had surgical menopause at 40. Since losing 62 pounds my acne has flaired up. I'm getting in my scalp more than my face right now. I've taken antibiotics several times before.

Is this from hormones secreting after weight loss? I can't handle this and may have to go see the Dr.

Thanks!

I am 49 years old and my dietitian told me it's from hormonal changes. I am getting a lot, they are popping up by my hairline, lips, eyebrows pretty much all over my face and they hurt when I touch them.

Hmmmm, that's interesting. I'm six months post-op sleeve and am almost identical to you (54 years old, surgical menopause/hysterectomy at 30) and I've lost 50 pounds, but I haven't had the acne issue or felt hormonal yet. Hang in there.

I started having acne too, and I thought my face has gotten oilier from the new foods I'm eating after the surgery. I changed my moisturizer and face cleanser to oil free. From Oil of Olay, I am now using Water base Nutrigena moisturizer and I forgot the brand of my cleanser and I'm at work right now. But in any case, people are noticing that my face has cleared and glowing too they said.. ha! Hope it continues to clear.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
