The decision to have Bariatric surgery is a major turn in a patient’s weight-loss journey, and many patients look at it as a new beginning. It is like giving your body a fresh start to be healthy!
But it is important to remember that obesity is a lifelong disease and there is no operation, diet or medication that can by itself offer a permanent cure. The choices you make after having weight loss surgery can mean the difference between success and failure, so it is important to understand what your body can and cannot do after WLS.
With the right aftercare and moderate lifestyle changes, Bariatric surgery can dramatically change your life, giving you wonderful long-term results for health and weight.
