Bariatric Recovery

Recovery after Bariatric Surgery

Most Bariatric Surgery is laparoscopic, which means the surgeon makes small cuts. That makes for shorter recovery time.

Most people stay in the hospital for 2 to 3 days, and get back to normal activities in 3 to 5 weeks.

If the surgery must be “open,” meaning the surgeon has to make a larger cut, healing takes longer.

Many people who have the surgery lose weight quickly, but re-gain some weight later on. As long as diet and exercise recommendations are followed, most of the weight can be kept off. Medical follow ups will be required for the rest of the patient’s life

Eating large meals can cause problems. Many people with obesity are binge eaters. Adapting to eating smaller meals can be a challenge.

Commit to good nutrition . Ask a dietitian to help you create a plan that will get you all the nutrients you need.

Exercise. It helps you keep the weight off, and it’s often easier after weight loss surgery, because losing weight may have helped your joints.

Many weight loss surgery centers offer programs to help people shift to a healthier lifestyle before and after weight loss surgery to ensure your Bariatric Recovery goes well.
