Follow-up meetings after bariatric surgery extremely important

Weight loss surgery continues to be prominent in the news as more studies are published and celebrities come forth about their own experiences. These stories praise the bariatric surgery and the resulting weight loss, yet some don't emphasize enough the importance of following up with your doctor post-surgery.

Dr. Feiz is a board certified plastic surgeon who truly values post-surgical meetings. After your gastric sleeve or lap band in Beverly Hills, you should not hesitate to schedule regular follow-up meetings. These meetings are essential to ensure that the surgical changes are monitored. However, regular consultations with a doctor also:
  • Support the dietary aspects of the weight loss process and ensure nutritional health.
  • Allow exercise regimens to be monitored.
  • Provide care for the patient's mental health, giving them a compassionate person who listens to their concerns.
  • Let doctors act as resources for the latest news on bariatric surgeries.
  • Strengthen the patient-surgeon bond.
Information is very important for healthy post-surgical weight loss. Call Dr. Feiz and his associates for a free consultation to find out if you qualify for bariatric surgery. If you do, don't forget to follow-up!
