Hair Loss After Bariatric Surgery

Welcome back to the Regain Be Gone Podcast. My name is Sameera Khan, RD PA-C. I am a best-selling author, registered dietician, and nutritionist. Today I’m talking with Jo, from JoJo Concepts International. She specializes in non-surgical hair replacement. Her job is to help people look good and feel good about themselves. Most of her clients and patients see her because of hair loss due to alopecia, chemotherapy, bariatric surgery, medications, and a myriad of other reasons.

We’re going to explore how Jo works with her clients and how she helps people with that particular speed bump. Hair loss after bariatric surgery can be tough and that’s why I’m talking with Jo today.
