Dr. Hanna & Las Vegas Bariatrics has redefined surgical weight loss by emphasizing
nutrition, fitness & group support before as well as after surgery.
The NIH recommends Bariatric surgery for individuals who are morbidly obese. Weight loss allows patients to lead a healthier, happier and longer life. Many of the health problems associated with obesity either improve or go away. These include:
Under the guidance of our registered dietician, all of our Las Vegas weight loss surgery patients are required to follow a healthy diet plan before and after surgery.Nutrition classes are taught before surgery so that you are comfortable in following a healthy diet that’s easy to maintain after surgery.Patients are required to take vitamin supplements for the rest of their life.
Some simple dietary guidelines include:
Since Bariatric surgery does not work alone we do encourage our patients to exercise. This is important for your success in the program.It is recommended that you do 30 minutes of walking or other light cardiovascular exercise each day. In addition, at least 30 minutes of resistance training with light weights.This burns calories and builds muscle, which in turn increases your metabolic rate.
