Once The Surgery Is Over, We Are Here For You
One of the most common concerns for new bariatric surgery patients or people beginning to look into medical weight loss is post bariatric surgery support: will I receive the help and support I need to make the surgery worth it?
At Cernero Surgery and Aesthetics, we believe that post bariatric surgery support is key to making a lifelong impact on patients. The surgery is the catalyst to change, but our support team is what makes the change permanent.
Here are some things you can expect after your bariatric surgery with Dr. Cernero.
Patients can expect to lose 60-70 percent of their excess body weight following a weight loss procedure over a couple of years, with the vast majority of the weight loss in the first year after the procedure.
This number can vary from patient to patient and how they each exercise and change their diet. During our post bariatric surgery support, we help patients choose the right food and exercise regimen to help them make lasting changes.
Recovery time varies between patients and depends on the type of procedure you choose. In general, patients should plan for about 10 days off work.
Weight loss surgery will require the patient to be in the hospital for one to two days, but they will be able to return to normal day to day activities relatively quickly. Follow up appointments with our post bariatric surgery support team will be required to review recovery and progress.
Change in Diet
One of the major factors of success for weight loss surgery is the change in diet after the procedure. Our support team will provide you with dietary guidelines to help you get the macro-nutrition your body needs to lose the weight and stay healthy.
Choosing better foods for yourself will be a big change at first, but our post bariatric surgery support team is there to help you every step of the way.
