Abstract:   (542 Views)
Background: Due to the reduction in micronutrients and proteins available to the body after LSG, we evaluated effects of various supplements and rate of hair loss in the postoperative period.
Material and Methods: In this interventional study, we examined female candidates of LSG. individuals randomly divided into three groups. Group 1  received routine multivitamin mineral supplements, group 2 took received zinc + iron + B vitamins supplements plus routine multivitamin mineral until the end of the third month after surgery, and group 3 took supplements containing wheat and sesame proteins and methionine and cysteine in addition to Zinc + Iron + B vitamins supplements and routine multivitamin mineral supplements. number of hairs in the frontal area were counted  using trichoscope before surgery and after 3 month follow up.
Results:  the mean number of hairs in the frontal area in group 1 before and after surgery was about143 and 100 hairs per cm² respectively, in group 2 was 142 and 116 and In group 3, 137 and 177 hairs per cm². the mean number of trichoscopic hairs in the frontal area, was significantly higher in group 3 than other groups. (p < 0.001) 
Conclusion: The present study clearly showed that the use of protein supplements, in addition to the use of micronutrients in individuals, more and better reduces the rate of hair loss after LSG. This can be considered and evaluated for future surgeries
