Surgical weight loss remains one of the most impactful interventions in medicine. The weight loss surgeries in conjunction with lifestyle changes can result in a significant long term improvements in your comorbidities associated with obesity. All the procedures done at LifeWeigh Bariatrics are minimally invasive surgical procedures. They are done laparoscopically meaning several tiny incisions are made instead of one large incision. When procedures are done laparoscopically, you heal more quickly and there’s a shorter stay in the hospital.
Follow up for all procedures at LifeWeigh Bariatrics is lifelong and the key to long-term success. In the first year, we see patients that underwent bypass or sleeve approximately six times at 1 week, 1 month, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. Only the lap band requires follow-up adjustments on a monthly basis in the first year. In year two, we see all surgical patients every 4 months. In year 3 and beyond, we see all patients every 6 months to a year for life-long weight maintenance. Specific calculated surgical weight loss goals can be discussed during your visit.
Keep in mind that no matter what treatment you have lifestyle changes need to be made that are long lasting. We are here to provide you the treatment as well as all the tools to help you on your path to wellness and weight loss.
