Weight Loss Surgery Follow-Up / Matthew Brengman, MD, FACS

– Follow-up is very important after all weight loss surgery. We intend to see you up to 10 times that first year. We want to ensure that your
weight loss is on pace, that you’re eating the
right kinds of foods at the right time, and that your vitamin
supplementation is good for you. When you reach certain milestones, we’ll check your vitamin levels to make sure your weight
loss is coming along safely. We’ll also look for any
types of complications that can occur, so we
can address them early. With the adjustable gastric band, some of those visits are
gonna involve adjustments so that we can keep your
band perfectly sized for you and keep your hunger under control.
