Why Should I Care About Diet Before Surgery?

Did you know that in order to undergo bariatric surgery, you need to lose weight before the surgery? This is because the surgeons need to clearly access the liver and spleen, which would normally be surrounded by fat.

If you’re thinking to yourself, but I’ve been trying to lose weight and can’t! That’s the whole reason why I’m undergoing the surgery!, you are not alone. Many bariatric surgery candidates end up having to cancel or postpone their surgeries because of failure to follow a strict diet. But that doesn’t have to be you, because Healthpointe’s Weight Management and Diet Program specialists will work closely with you to make sure that you are in the shape you need to be for a successful surgery.


Diet after Surgery

So, your surgery was a success! Now what?

Old habits die hard. In order to lose weight after surgery, and keep the weight off for the rest of your life, you will need patience, dedication, and help. This is where Healthpointe’s Weight Management and Diet Program comes in. Our nutritionists and fitness specialists are here to teach, guide, and motivate you in every area of your weight loss.

Through the Program, you will be given a diet and exercise plan tailored to your individual medical needs, and will meet with your specialist in follow-ups to make sure you are making healthy progress. The Program ends when you feel you have mastered and learned – through experience – the skills and knowledge needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle that works for you.
