What are the Procedure Risks?
Both of these procedures include the same risks that any type of surgery carries, as well as any type of procedure which involves the usage of general anesthesia.
For lap-band surgery, specific risks include band erosion, band infection or access port infection, dilation of the stomach pouch, band slippage, or food bolus obstruction. If results aren’t seen or are reversed, revisional surgery may be required. Attention must be paid to following your nutritional guidelines and maintaining the proper diet and lifestyle in order to achieve results.
What Post Bariatric Surgery Diet will I need to follow?
Following the correct post-bariatric surgery diet is crucial to your health and success, both in the immediate period following your surgery, as well as the long term to maintain your results. Immediately following your procedure, you will follow instructions for a two-week all liquid diet. This is phase 1 of your post-surgery diet, with the next two phases, two weeks each, beginning to incorporate solid foods and a wider selection of food choices.
Patients will have access to Tristate NYBG’s comprehensive bariatric support program. This includes nutritional advice and assistance, ongoing education and support, support groups and mentors, and more. You’ll also be able to find affordable and nutritious foods and supplements at our convenient online store.
