    How I Lost 6 Stone With The Gastric Sleeve

    Reading Time: 3 minutes with your weight can create deep issues with self-love and acceptance. This, is something Alison, our gastric sleeve patient was all too familiar with.

    Again, surgery goes beyond just the surgeon being the best choice, their aftercare should be just as good. To give you the best chance at success after weight loss surgery you need to make sure that the aftercare provided is up to scratch.

    Depending on your surgery, your aftercare should include 

    • Long-term follow up calls
    • Blood tests
    • Surgeon follow up 
    • Dietitian appointments
    • Bariatric nurse follow up

    At Healthier Weight we our proud to have 3 of the best aftercare packages to support patients on their weight loss journey.
