Weight Gain After Bariatric SurgeryConveniently located to serve Fountain Valley, CA
Offering a compassionate program that provides comprehensive care and support before, during, and after bariatric surgery to morbidly obese patients, Smart Dimensions™ performs revision surgery for failed bariatric surgery for Los Angeles and Orange County residents.
Bariatric surgery is not a guarantee that you will never regain weight. In fact, after about 18 months, once your body has adjusted to the changes, you are at risk of gaining weight. Diet and exercise are the only ways to keep your weight at a healthy level. For many patients, committing to a healthier and more active lifestyle can be a difficult thing. Fortunately, you are not alone for this part of the journey. At Smart Dimensions, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the care and assistance they need even after their bariatric procedures. Our goal is to help our patients make the changes they need to transform their lives by providing them with excellent treatments and support.
Old Habits and Weight Gain
Patients who undergo bariatric surgery and never learn to eat healthy and exercise are at greater risk of gaining weight after surgery. For many patients, their favorite “guilt foods” are not appealing, or their bodies cannot tolerate them. But as time passes, the stomach and small intestine adapt to whatever and however much the patient eats. Learning new habits in the one to two years after surgery is the best way to keep the weight under control.
This can be done through a variety of methods. Diet programs are available that can teach you which foods are beneficial for your health and can teach you how to cook and prepare healthier dishes that you can incorporate into your diet. Keeping a food diary and keeping track of the amount of calories, fats, and sugars you consume can also be incredibly useful.
Exercise is also incredibly important as maintaining an active lifestyle will help you maintain a stable weight and keep your heart and body in good health. Excercise routines and schedules are incredibly valuable, as well as finding a way to stay active that works for you. For some, going to the gym can be enjoyable, while others may prefer sports, running, or even simply walking regularly every day. What is most important is finding something that works for you that you feel you can stick to in the long run.
