Preparing for Your Post-Bariatric ProcedureYou may have to go without certain medications or lifestyle choices prior to the procedure, depending on your doctor’s guide. Smoking is typically stopped at least two weeks before the procedures are done so that you may heal better and lower your risk factors for complications.
Post-Bariatric Procedures RecoveryNo matter which post-bariatric procedure you choose, you will most likely feel soreness following the surgery. Your doctor will provide you with a local anesthetic pump as well as a compression garment, which will minimize any discomfort. The compression garment should be worn for at least a month to minimize the risk of developing any contour abnormalities. Also, you’ll be advised to refrain from any strenuous activity, such as exercise, for at least a month.
