When can I start exercising again after surgery?

Right away! You will take gentle, short walks even while you are in the hospital. The key is to start slow. Listen to your body and your surgeon. If you lift weights or do sports, stay “low impact” for the first month (avoid competition, think participation). Build slowly over several weeks. If you swim, your wounds need to be healed over before you get back in the water.


Will I lose my hair after bariatric surgery??

Some hair loss is common between 3 and 6 months following surgery. The reasons for this are not totally understood. Even if you take all recommended supplements, hair loss will be noticed until the follicles come back. Hair loss is almost always temporary. Adequate intake of protein, vitamins and minerals will help to ensure hair re-growth, and avoid longer term thinning.

Welcome to Centre for Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric Surgery (Weight Loss Treatment) is a procedure performed on people who are extremely obese. This is performed in individuals who have obesity related conditions such as diabetes, increased cholesterol levels, impaired glucose tolerance, high BP etc. Bariatric surgical procedures cause weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold \ or by a combination of both gastric restriction and malabsorption. Most weight loss surgeries today are performed using minimally invasive techniques, through laparoscopic surgery. There are many types of weight-loss surgery, Gastric bypass is one of the most common types of bariatric surgery. Each type has its own pros and cons.
