AFTERCARE

BARIATRIC SURGERY AFTERCARE

You're in good hands with the team at Brighton Bariatrics. Following weight loss surgery, we have a rigorous aftercare program to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

Adjusting to new habits

After surgery patients are expected to commit to healthy new habits, such as diet and exercise which can be overwhelming but they are not impossible and you won’t have to do this on your own; a comprehensive care plan will be provided by our dedicated Brighton Bariatric team of healthcare professionals who will be available to help you.  In addition attend a support group—you might draw inspiration from listening to other people’s stories.

 

How to cope with fear of failure

After years failed attempts at losing weight it’s not unusual for patients to blame themselves or to think that surgery won’t work for them.  However, many healthcare professionals would argue that the patients were not failures; the weight loss treatments failed them.

 

Bariatric surgery: a tool

Bariatric surgery has a history of helping patients effectively transform their health. As a tool, bariatric surgery has impressive long-term weight loss results and in many cases, has resolved or improved co-morbid conditions. However, bariatric surgery is not a quick fix. It’s an ongoing journey toward transforming your health through lifestyle changes. After surgery, you will feel satisfied and fuller with less food. Positive changes in your body, your weight, and your health WILL occur and we look forward to going on this journey together!

 

Prevention from blood clots after discharge

To help prevent this, you will be put on blood thinning medication (heparin) and given compression stockings while in hospital. You will also be encouraged to get out of bed and walk as soon as possible after surgery. If you have had a sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass the blood thinning medication will need to be continued for at least two weeks after you are discharged.

 

Plastic surgery

You need to consider how you will deal with the rapid weight loss that follows surgery. At Brighton Bariatrics we have access to expert Brighton based Plastic surgeons who will guide you in how body contouring following weight loss will work best with you as an individual.

 

Data collection and audit

At Brighton Bariatrics we are committed to safe, high quality surgery. Keeping track of how you are doing as parts of an anonymised data base as part of the National Bariatric Surgery Registry (NBSR) as well a local Brighton Bariatric database to monitor our outcomes and raise standards is the best way of achieving this for you.
