I am having the expected Hair loss (in spite of the Biotin) and I can live with that. But...…. my eyebrows are nearly gone, especially on the outside edges. Anyone else experience eyebrow loss along with the hair loss?

You know I hadn't thought about this- went and evaluated my face in the bathroom mirror. The things one does when they can't sleep, Half-past 2 AM at my humble abode. By Golly I believe you might be on to something! Haven't worn makeup for a week or so, don't unless I am visiting my doctors, dentist or lawyer. Yeah I usually don't bother around the house. My poor sandy-red eyebrows are distinctly shorter and looking a little sparse. Well Tuesday when I visit my Sleep Lab Specialist, going to find out whether my C-Pap can be discontinued or whether it needs recorded. Losing 125 pounds made my face much narrower, oh after every procedure I try to rewear it, they usually make me promise to , in the beginning I was having 70-74 episodes an hour, and that's a pretty Scarey Larry thing. Well I make sure I have loaded distilled Water into it, I put my mask on in good faith, but it's off when I wake up again.Instead of a Sleep Walker I am a Sleep Removal person. So I will add brownish brow makeup to my prep. Have an L'Oriel in Auburn and an Allergy brand, they call that one Blonde, but they look close to the same shade to ME.

And isn't it a doggone shame the rest of me isn't going bald. My PCOS , latent as it should be, still have to shave my legs and down where the Sun don't Shine as well as my chinny chin chin, don't want a goatee everybody can notice! Oh fooey dooey, isn't that just life to do this to me!

I lost the outer half of my eyebrows 25 years ago due to hypothyroidism. I have that stable now but the eyebrows never came back. Most eyebrow makeup is made to make hair that is there look thicker. I have tried literally hundreds of products and never could find anything that would last even through the work day. There are some products on Amazon that look the most natural and last the longest for me. They have a micro blade tip that draws hair-like looking brows. If you search on eyebrow tattoo pen some should come up. Look for a waterproof one with good reviews. If you need a link then contact me. They say they will last for days. That has not been the case but I can use it in the morning and it is still there when I take my makeup off at night. It takes a little practice but I feel like I have finally found a solution.

I hope yours return for you and you don’t need this. The good news was that a year later I was able to stop shaving my legs!

Congrats on your great weight loss!

I had this several years pre-op and I assume it was thyroid issues.

Hey you might just be correct, I am having some thyroid issues at the same time, my medical entourage is at " We'll watch and see how fast your nodules grow!" they have said they are "cold" now , but I am starting to wonder.
Had a relative shave hers all off, didn't regrow, but she's on Late Lamenteds side of the Family Tree, my own never did that trick.

My thyroid has always been fine, but who knows what can happen after WLS, right? I get labs drawn in a couple of weeks, so it will be interesting to see if thyroid was affected. I have so much more energy now, that I can't imagine being hypothyroid.

Well I know my physical center of BALANCE has changed since I lost from tummy but most of all from my Big Backside, this baby used to have so much going on back there, only Sir Mix-A-Lot would truly appreciate.

Well folks, I learned at an early age One Must Think Ahead or One Falls Behind! So I turned and said

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
