Requirements After Metabolic & Bariatric (Weight Loss) Surgery

​Once your surgery is complete, we map out a list of follow-up appointments with you to make sure you are continuing to meet your goals.

These checkups are a chance to cover how well you are adjusting to your lifestyle changes and we'll discuss topics such as dietary guidelines, physical fitness and mental wellbeing.

When will these checkups take place?

​After the day of your operation, we will schedule follow-ups for these time periods, at a minimum:

  • 1 week later
  • 1 month later
  • 3 months later
  • 6 months later
  • 1 year later
  • Annually for the rest of your life after the first year

Who will you meet with?

This may vary from appointment to appointment, but your bariatric care team, primary care provider and dietitian will all play a major role.

If no major changes or issues happen between later checkups, they can be done via Telehealth.
