When your weight became a major obstacle to your health and quality of life in Port Jefferson, you realized your best option to get back on track was bariatric surgery. It wasn’t an easy decision, but you were hopeful that weight reduction surgery would help improve your eating habits, lower your risk for chronic disease, and tip the scale permanently in the right direction.
Many patients who undergo bariatric surgery for weight loss lose up to 80 percent of their excess body weight within the first two to three years after surgery, according to the Obesity Action Coalition. But what if bariatric surgery doesn’t work out quite the way you imagined, you don’t lose enough weight, you start gaining weight back, or a problem develops after surgery?
In many cases, recommitting to the recommended diet and exercise plan can help, but sometimes poor results after surgery mean you may need revisional bariatric surgery.
