WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY Abroad
You are considering weight loss surgery and looking at your options for bariatric surgery in a different country. This can raise a number of questions: What are the hospital conditions like? Are the surgeons experienced, educated and qualified? What are the risks associated with traveling after having bariatric surgery? How do I minimize my risks? How long do I have to be away from home? Is it safe? How much does it cost? Is there aftercare? What is the process?
WHAT ABOUT Aftercare?
Your surgery is done. You come home and are ready to begin your new life. What's next?
What you do after your surgery is the key to your success. Don't be fooled into thinking that once you have your weight loss surgery, your excess weight will just start melting off, or that you will never be hungry again, or that you won't crave the pizza and ice cream any more. This is far from the truth. While the surgery is the most daunting part of this journey, it is only the beginning.
At Humanicare, our comprehensive one-year personalized program is designed to hold your hand through this journey. The first 12 months after surgery are the most critical to your success and we want to guide you along the path right to the very end. Our program will teach you how to eat differently after weight loss surgery. You will have counselors available to you to discuss any emotional eating habits and then incorporate strategies for replacing the old habits with new ones. Our monthly online support groups allow you to connect with fellow weight loss surgery patients and share your victories. Most importantly, your success will be monitored to ensure you are on track to reach your goal.
