Weight Gain After Bariatric Surgery Orange County
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, your body has adjusted to the changes, and you are at risk for gaining weight. Diet and exercise are the only ways to keep your weight at a healthy level.
Old Habits and Weight Gain
Patients who undergo bariatric surgery and never learn to eat healthy and exercise are at greater risk for 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.
