Survivability of Bariatric Surgery

While the survivability of bariatric surgery is high, patients should understand the procedure is still considered major surgery. This means there are serious short-term and long-term risks that must be weighed before the procedure.

Even in minimally invasive procedures, recovery a slow process as the body adjusts to the surgical changes. Follow-up care is important to avoid complications and to be sure patients are getting the right nutrition. Patients may even experience emotional and physical stress as the body changes over the following months.

The long-term prognosis for patients includes strict dietary and lifestyle adjustments that must be made to improve the success of the procedure.
