What to expect from weight loss surgery
Baylor Scott & White Health's caring and supportive weight management staff is excited to help you start a whole new life.
Before and during weight loss surgery
The decision to have weight loss surgery is a serious one that requires a commitment to a lifestyle change.
Make sure you know what to expect before and during bariatric surgery and talk with a weight loss surgeon on the medical staff at one of our facilities about the benefits and risks of each type of weight loss procedure near you.
After weight loss surgery
You should return to the surgeon’s office as instructed for follow-up visits after you are discharged from the hospital. Additional follow-up visits will be according to the doctor’s instructions. These visits are necessary to monitor your weight loss and general health. A healthy level of exercise is important to everyone’s daily life. At the first post operative visit, we encourage you to ask your physician when and at what level you should begin your exercise program.
The success of the surgery depends on the choices you make. You will need to make lifelong changes in your eating and exercise habits to maintain your weight loss.
