Bariatric Support (pre & post weight loss surgery)

When it comes to having a major surgery, getting the right support is invaluable. Our dietitians are highly experienced in providing important information and tailored support before and after weight loss surgery – including for Lapband (or gastric band), Sleeve Gastrectomy, Gastric Bypass and Intragastric Balloon procedures.

We work directly with some bariatric (weight loss surgery) surgeons on a daily basis. If your surgeon doesn’t have a dietitian on team we would love to help you each step of the way.

Considering Surgery?

With more than 10 years experience in Obesity Surgery (also known as weight loss surgery), we can give you a picture of what to expect from the different surgery options. We can help you decide whether or not surgery is the best option for you at this time, and if you decide it is, which one may be the most appropriate for you. We can discuss the pros and cons, how surgery may help you, but also what it can’t do, including banishing desires or cravings for food for comfort or emotional needs. We do however, also offer strategies on how to manage this.

Before Surgery…

We can help you to understand how your surgery can help you (and what it can’t do – and how we can help in those areas too!). We can help to give you a picture of what to expect from surgery.

We will provide you with an overview of the different dietary stages before and after surgery, and step you through the pre-surgery stage in detail. We will also make sure you are comfortable and confident with the first stage after surgery, tailoring all recommendations as appropriate to your needs.

After Surgery…

A major role in our support after your surgery is to help your recovery period be as fast and smooth as possible. We will step you through the different dietary stages after surgery, from fluids and purees to solids and anything between, with plenty of detail and practical tips.

Once you’re back to normal food again we can help you with tips and tricks to get the most out of your surgery. We’ll be there to troubleshoot any problems you may have along the way, and create strategies to achieve optimal health and weight loss you are aiming for.

Longterm…

If you’ve had surgery a while ago and struggling with old unhelpful eating habits or adjusting to new ones, we can help you get back on track, troubleshoot any problems and create strategies to support optimal health and maintain the weight you’ve lost. Losing too much weight? We can share ways to prevent you losing more than you want.
