The Bariatric Surgery Process: Steps Along the Journey to a New You

A New You: Continuing Care and Support

Surgery gives you a physical tool to assist with weight loss, but you must be committed to making the mental and emotional changes necessary for long-term weight loss and maintenance.

Success includes your commitment to regularly taking vitamins and supplements, eating healthy, exercising and attending all follow-up visits. You will continue to see your surgeon periodically — usually four-six weeks, three months, and six months after surgery.

You will have an annual appointment for at least five years after surgery. We offer regular support groups to help you stay focused and healthy throughout your post-operative weight loss journey. Registration is not required.

Our team is available at your follow-up visits as well as by phone to help you with your lifestyle changes.
