Bariatric Surgery in Los Angeles, California
The recovery period after having weight loss surgery is one of the most important steps in the weight loss process. After LAP-BAND® Surgery or Gastric Bypass Surgery, Dr. Liu will monitor your health and make sure you are not suffering from any complications.
Weight loss surgery will reduce the size of your stomach so that it will only be able to hold one to two ounces of food. Immediately following the procedure, you will be on a liquid diet for two weeks so that your stomach and digestive tract can heal properly. After that, you will gradually return to a healthy diet.
While you recover, you will eat very small meals that are easy for the stomach to digest. As you progress with your recovery, you will learn exactly how much you can eat. You will feel full for longer and you will be able to control your dietary intake.
After Your Recovery
In addition to making sure you recover well from your LAP-BAND® surgery or Gastric Bypass surgery, Dr. Liu is committed to making sure your weight loss is permanent. We offer support groups and a Conscious Eating Bariatric Program to help you cope with your new diet and lifestyle.
The success of your weight loss surgery relies on how well you maintain your body after your surgery. Through proper diet and regular exercise, you can expect to lose two thirds or more of the excess weight you are dealing with right now. With weight loss surgery, you can resolve or improve:
- Type-2 Diabetes
