Follow-up care is very important following bariatric surgery. After the procedure, you will need to return to see the surgeon at least:
- two weeks after surgery
- every three months after surgery for the first year
- every six months for the following year
- annually after the second year
Changing habits you've acquired over a lifetime is a big challenge. That's why it's so important to continue following up with your registered dietitian, and psychologist or psychiatrist. These medical professionals will provide you with the guidance and support you need to adjust to and maintain your new way of living.
