How will my life change after weight loss surgery?

After weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, you’ll start losing more weight. This process depends on many factors and takes up to one to two years for most people. Depending on the type of weight loss surgery you have, you can return to work within a timeframe of a few weeks. 

Less Weight, More Life!

You should be up and walking right away. Moving around and following your diet will help you feel better quickly. It’s important that you attend your weight loss support group and stay focused in the weeks before you return to work, so you can establish good habits to rely on for the months ahead. Your weight loss support group will be invaluable when it comes to helping you to stay disciplined and committed to losing the weight. 

As the weight comes off, you’ll have more energy. Some of your health problems may start to lessen or even disappear completely. You’ll find that old clothes no longer fit. Eventually, you’ll be able to get about in public and enjoy life in ways that once seemed impossible. These positive changes are the beginning of the new life you’ve been waiting for. With discipline and the help of your weight loss support group, you should be able to settle into your active new life. 

The physicians and their support team at the Miami Valley Hospital Weight Loss Surgery Center firmly believe that successful weight loss surgery depends on your motivation and commitment.
