What to Expect After Bariatric Massive Weight Loss Surgery

Bariatric weight loss surgery will change your life.  From the confidence you gain to the new, slimmer body that remains, when you go through bariatric surgery, you’ll love the results.  After bariatric surgery, you will notice differences in your body—external and internal.  You want to monitor your body carefully throughout recovery to ensure that you are losing weight appropriately.

After weight loss surgery you will have small incisions to care for during recovery.  Though you will stay in the hospital for two to three days, you can resume normal activities in three to five weeks.  However, recover does depend on whether you have laparoscopic or open surgery—open surgery takes longer to heal.  Dr. Frenzel uses laparoscopic method of surgery, giving you a shorter recover time.

Of course, the main goal after bariatric surgery is to lose weight.  While most people lose 61 percent of excess weight after weight loss surgery, each individual’s weight loss will vary.  Expecting to lose a significant amount of weight is not unrealistic.  The measures you take in weight loss surgery will give you proven results.

Other changes you will experience after bariatric surgery include changes in your health.  Obesity-related medical problems are more likely to improve after weight loss surgery.  Whether you struggle with obstructive sleep apnea, diabetes, gastroesophageal reflux disease, degenerative joint disease, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure, after weight loss surgery, you will see changes in your body.
