The first week after gastric sleeve, patients will be carefully monitored by our bariatric surgery team and provided detailed instructions to ensure proper recovery.
After gastric sleeve surgery, a patient's diet will involve slowly shifting from liquids to solids. Small but frequent meals are common as hunger changes after bariatric surgery.
On average, gastric sleeve patients should lose 60% of their excess body weight. Bariatric surgery patients should follow post-op instructions to the letter.
Some people undergo gastric sleeve after LAP-BAND® surgery in order to improve overall weight loss results. Changing bariatric solutions like this is possible.
