Bariatric Surgery Q&A

What is bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery is a type of weight loss surgery in which a surgeon alters tissues in your stomach or small intestine to help you feel full after eating fewer calories. This makes it easier to lose weight and keep lost weight off for good. KairWell Weight and Wellness partners use the latest advances in robotics technology to offer highly effective bariatric surgery outcomes.

What are the benefits of bariatric surgery?

The many benefits you can expect after bariatric surgery with KairWell Weight and Wellness partners include:

  • Low risk of complications
  • Minimal bleeding
  • High success rates
  • Fast weight loss
  • Long-term healthy weight management
  • Increased satiety
  • Highly effective results

Bariatric surgery can help you get your life back on track, achieve a healthy weight, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases and other challenges related to obesity.

Is bariatric surgery right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for bariatric surgery with KairWell Weight and Wellness partners, your provider discusses your medical history and weight loss goals. They weigh you, assess body mass index (BMI), and check your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs.

Your provider often recommends heart function testing, blood tests, imaging procedures, urine tests, or other diagnostic tests to detect or rule out medical problems.

How should I prepare for bariatric surgery?

To get ready for bariatric surgery, follow your surgeon's instructions. Stop taking certain medications, arrange for a friend or family member to drive you home, don’t smoke, and maintain healthy habits. Avoid foods and drinks the morning of your scheduled procedure and follow a liquid diet in the days leading up to your scheduled surgery.

What happens during bariatric surgery?

Right before bariatric surgery with KairWell Weight and Wellness partners, you’re given anesthesia to help you fall asleep. Your surgeon uses advanced robotics technology to make tiny incisions and alter gastrointestinal tissues to make weight loss easier. After the procedure, you rest in a recovery area.

What should I expect after bariatric surgery?

After bariatric surgery, follow all of your post-surgery instructions. Have someone drive you home and stay with you after your surgery. Consume a liquid diet until given the OK to add in solid foods, take dietary supplements as directed, and avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting until your surgeon gives you permission.

Meet with the KairWell Weight and Wellness team after surgery to receive custom meal and exercise plans, stay on track with weight loss, and receive answers to questions you may have about post-surgery weight loss.
