Gastric Sleeve Aftercare
The UK's Most Comprehensive Package
The importance of great aftercare is often underestimated when it comes to gastric sleeve. Most patients enjoy excellent weight loss in the first year or two but some weight regain is quite common after a few years. This can be reduced by adopting the correct dietary and exercise habits in the first couple of years after surgery.
In order to develop the skills needed to get the best long term benefits from your sleeve, it is important to attend clinics and to stay in touch with the bariatric support team. We encourage patients to come in for reviews in order to ensure you are on track and to make sure that any potential problems can be identified, and rectified, as early as possible.
