While the final outcome of your weight loss surgery will be at the front of your mind, the care you receive following your procedure is just as important as the surgery itself in helping you to achieve your weight loss goals.
Aftercare is an important factor in reaching your weight loss goals. Weight loss surgery is your initial step in your life-changing journey. Our aftercare is designed to help you achieve your weight loss goals. Our team of dedicated and highly qualified weight loss experts provides on-going support as part of your aftercare package.
We offer a variety of aftercare packages to suit your individual needs.
We know that a weight loss journey is not always easy and that it will be different for everybody. With us, you can choose 1 or 2 years of aftercare and know that you will be looked after by our weight loss support team throughout. Our aftercare packages include the following benefits:
Up to 2 years peace of mind
Claims such as ‘lifetime aftercare’ might not actually mean you are covered for your whole lifetime, and there’s no such thing as ‘unlimited’ care. At The Hospital Group, we provide market-leading aftercare packages that give you up to two years peace of mind.
On-going expert dietitian support
Your dedicated team of expert dietitians will guide your diet throughout your journey with us, from your pre-operative diet to your long-term lifestyle change. Our specialist team will continue to support you to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
Support of highly qualified nursing team
Your team of specialised nurses will provide advice and support before and after surgery. In the initial days following surgery, your nurse will be there to answer your questions and will guide you through understanding your medications, and the healing process.
Regular contact with your weight loss support team
We’re always with you. Throughout your weight loss journey, you have access to appointments across all of our clinics as well as a 24-hour number for urgent clinical advice so you’re always supported, especially when you need us the most.
Your individual journey will vary depending on your own needs and chosen weight loss procedure.
To get the most benefit out of your weight loss surgery, and to help you achieve your weight loss goals, we offer ongoing appointments with specialist nurses and dietitians across the UK as part of your aftercare for up to 6 years depending on the package purchased.
For the gastric band specifically, most people require four to six adjustments to their gastric band before it is correctly adjusted. We recommend regular appointments in this initial period, and evidence shows that those who engage in regular follow-up are more likely to succeed in the long-term weight loss goals.
Whatever your requirements, our dietitians and nurses are here to support you every step of your journey.
If you had your procedure a while ago and are now out of your aftercare period, we can help.
Our dedicated weight loss support team will look after you if your aftercare has come to an end. We have various weight loss packages, as well as singular sessions and appointments, available with our highly experienced specialist dietitians, nurses, surgeon assistants and surgeons if required. These are available to all weight loss surgery patients whether you had a gastric band, gastric bypass or gastric sleeve surgery.
