just wondering about those of you that have had WLS and had your facial hair reduce or disappear? I had a sleeve 5 years and my cycles are great and I have kids. My only problem is FACIAL HAIR!! It's really horrible on my chin and neck, it's been like this since I hit puberty and I'm now 40 and am really tired of it. I am going to have to be re-sleeved, and and considering other surgeries if there was any hope of it helping.
Same experience as Julie..right down to the groupons.

I think mine really got worse to be honest about it. I have to "take care" of my "beard" twice a day. Its a shame with todays technologies and medicine that they cannot do more about this problem.
Hi, I know I'm a little late on this post, but I too have pcos and have facial hair really bad buy my gyno wrote me a script for a cream that slows/stops the hair growth for me. Hope this helps.
What is the name of the medication you got prescribed?
This is my first hour on this website. Thank you so much for posting this information about my chinny, *****hin. I have been going crazy trying to keep my chin hair trimmed by plucking with tweezers. I had no idea that PCOS was related to this issue. I get ingrown hairs on my chin buried beneath patches of psoriasis.
