It surprises many people to discover that Bariatrics is not simply for cosmetic purposes. Surgery may be an option for those with a BMI of 35 or higher, in cases when the patient’s weight is related to an adverse medical condition. Losing weight can help relieve or minimize many medical conditions, however it is essential to determine whether the patient has a long-term goal to keep the weight off as part of the process of candidate qualification.
Many patients want to know if they will regain the weight after they have reached their goal through Bariatric Surgery. The answer ultimately depends on whether they are able to commit to a change in lifestyle. Weight can be put back on, sometimes rather rapidly, if the three common culprits to weight regain are not addressed:
- High-calorie liquids
A progressive diet is prescribed for patients post-surgery, starting with full liquids, then soft proteins and finally, regular foods around the 8th week. The patient’s diet will always need to be low in fat and sugar. Weight loss is entirely dependent upon the patient’s commitment to following diet and exercise recommendations after surgery.
Gastric Bypass Surgery in the Dallas facility is a powerful tool and can often mean the beginning of a whole new way of life for patients who have struggles with losing weight. Along with the tool of surgery, the patient must commit to a change in diet and exercise for maximum success.
