When you commit to having weight loss surgery, the relationship with your surgeon is different than if you have hernia surgery or gallbladder removal. Once your hernia is repaired and your diseased gallbladder is removed, you will see your surgeon for a few follow-up visits to ensure there are no complications and that your recovery is 100% successful. Then it’s back to your regularly scheduled life.
But bariatric surgery encompasses far more than just an operation. Gastric bypass, VSG, lap banding, duodenal switch or even a bariatric revision is a lifestyle improvement where you partner with your bariatric surgeon and staff to plan your weight loss strategy before your operation through the time you reach and maintain goal weight.
In other words, choose your bariatric surgeon and team with great care and careful due diligence.
As you can see below, your surgical weight loss is a series of carefully orchestrated steps designed to optimize your opportunity for long-term success, from pre-op to post-op:
