DFW Bariatric Institute Aftercare and Post-Surgery Support
Bariatric surgery is an important first step toward losing significant amounts of weight and beginning your journey to a healthier lifestyle. With that in mind, it is only the first step – what comes after is equally important. At DFW Bariatric Institute, we understand that treatment for morbid obesity does not simply end when the surgery is complete. That’s why the DFW Bariatric Institute has developed a comprehensive aftercare program designed to help patients through every step of the weight loss process. We believe our extensive aftercare and lifelong support program to be one of the hallmarks of our practice, and we have assembled a team of experienced professionals, including bariatric surgeons, nurses, a Bariatric Dietitian, fitness experts, counselors, and others who are here to assist you in the weeks, months, and years after your surgery. Our post-surgery program can make the transition to a healthier life safer and easier, while giving you the help you’ll need to achieve successful weight loss.
Lifelong Support, Education, and Encouragement
Remember: weight loss surgery is only a tool that can be used in the fight against morbid obesity. Once you have undergone surgery, there are a number of new habits and lifestyle changes you’ll need to develop to ensure you are losing weight safely and effectively. You may also need emotional support along the way. DFW Bariatric Institute’s aftercare program includes lifelong support services that can provide weight loss education and access to others who are going through the same process that you are going through.
Although following your post-operative recovery instructions and being sure to take the proper nutritional supplements are crucial aspects of a safe weight loss, life after bariatric surgery isn’t just about that – it’s about changing your lifestyle. Significantly altering your diet and adapting to new ways of living can be very challenging for many people. Our lifelong support program is designed to help you in any way possible. The DFW Bariatric Institute truly believes that we are in this together. Whether you would like to join a weight loss surgery support group, meet with a Bariatric Dietitian about your diet or to get some ideas for healthy meals, talk with a counselor about your experiences, or if you would simply like some words of encouragement, we are here to assist you.
