What is the best surgery for weight loss?

The type of weight loss surgery that is best for you depends on your particular situation. Our surgeons will take into account many factors, such as body mass index, eating habits, other health problems, previous surgeries, and the risks involved with each procedure.

Bariatric treatment is totally personalized, we must be aware of what your reality is in order to make a better decision, however you can rest assured, currently bariatric surgery is the best method to lose weight and redeem diseases associated with obesity.

How soon will I be able to return to my normal activities after bariatric surgery?

Recovery from bariatric surgery is quite fast when performed by excellent equipment and methods. With preparation before surgery and if advanced anesthesia and surgery methodology is used, the hospital stay is no more than 2 days.

After leaving the hospital, the patient can take daily walks of 1 hour, and follow the nutritional instructions. It is a progression diet, adapted in textures, where the first 10 days they must eat a specific diet.

In labor terms if your employment is of the corporate type, that is; office or some other type of relatively quiet employment in a matter of physical demands, the patient may return to work after the first week of having undergone surgery.

In the case of a job that requires more physical effort, such as carrying heavy things or carrying out activities that require a lot of physical effort, the recommended time to rest is 30 days, during which you should avoid carrying things that weigh more than 15 kilos(30).

Are the scars from bariatric surgery large?

No, today the great advantage of many of the abdominal surgeries, such as pendience surgery, gallbladder surgery, obesity surgery, hiatal hernia surgery, some types of inguinal or ventral hernias, even large surgeries such as colon or receptions of tumors inside the abdomen is that they can be done by laparoscopy, it is minimally invasive surgery in most cases there are only 4 or 5 small incisions that help us to have little pain, little risk of infection, no trace of scars and a recovery of no more than a week.
