Life After Lap-Band Surgery
After surgery, it is important for you to work with the oBand® Miami team to lay down the foundation for a healthy life. To achieve your immediate and long term weight loss goals, you must make the necessary adjustments to your lifestyle.
The adjustments are as follows:
New Diet and Eating Habits
The oBand® Miami staff will provide you with detailed instructions and continuous support based on your individual needs.
Our health professionals will help you design an exercise program tailored for you. As you begin to lose weight from the diet and exercise, you will begin to see an increase in energy and endurance, which will in turn give you the confidence to progressively add more to your exercise routine.
Having routine checkups, especially during the first month after surgery, will give you opportunities to address any post-surgical concerns and make sure you stay on track for a healthy recovery and successful weight loss. Also, your routine checkup is a perfect time for any adjustment to the LAP-BAND® you may need.
During the first year after surgery, it's recommended you visit your surgeon for routine check-ups and make any necessary adjustments.
In addition to the many positive physical changes that occur after LAP-BAND® surgery, you will be going through an emotional transformation as well. Support groups will help you prepare and deal with the changes in body, your relationships and emotional states. oBand® Miami will provide you with the counseling you need to help you transition from old habits to a set of new lifestyle changes.
