Surgery Aftercare Shouldn’t Be An Afterthought

Weight loss surgery is a a powerful procedure, with operations like the gastric bypass helping patients lose up to 80% of their excess weight. However, success after weight loss surgery is not just down to the surgery alone, the procedure is a tool to help people suffering with obesity. It’s a long-term solution that needs long term support. Which is why aftercare should be just as important as the surgeon, the clinic & the provider.  

What Is Good Aftercare For Weight Loss Surgery?

When looking for a provider to have weight loss surgery, aftercare should be included within the package you’re offered. 

Some providers might seem like they offer weight loss surgery at a lower cost but they have no aftercare included within this. It is crucial that after your surgery you have follow up calls with bariatric nurses, and a dedicated support team. As well as blood tests and surgeon reviews. 

Some providers will charge additional prices for these services which can mean paying hundreds if not thousands on top of the original surgery price.

Already Had Surgery, But Received No Aftercare?

Some people might opt for a no aftercare package to save money on weight loss surgery. Or had their surgery abroad and therefore are no longer in the same country as the place they had their surgery. 

If you have had weight loss surgery we offer standalone aftercare packages, as we believe everyone should be able to access what they need to have a successful weight loss journey.
