How To Be Successful After Bariatric Surgery

So the best tips for surgery, or for success after surgery, to minimize or prevent weight regain are the ones that we give patients immediately after surgery:

  • You want to keep your meals small. You don’t want to push past those those volumes that we recommend after surgery
  • You want to try to avoid liquid calories as much as you can
  • You have to integrate exercise at some point into the post-op regimen when you get down to the end of your weight loss goals exercise is going to become that much more important but because it’s going to negate any missteps or extra calories you might take in from poor eating habits

So keeping your volumes of foods small avoiding liquid calories and integrating exercise are the main ways of preventing weight regain.
