Proper Nutrition, Successful Surgery We all fear the day of surgery. The risks and complications postoperatively freak us out, and the wounds or scars resulting afterwards worry us. Studies showed that proper diet and adjusting your nutritional requirements pre- and postoperatively can help reduce complications and speed up wound healing and recovery. Bariatric Surgery, Not a Magic Wand! Bariatric surgeries or weight loss surgeries are terms used to describe any surgery that helps you lose weight. There are different types of bariatric surgeries, but they all aim at decreasing stomach size so you can eat less and absorb less nutrients. With time, you will be able to feel full with smaller portions of food, and you will start noticing changes in your weight and body shape. However, since weight loss surgeries aim at decreasing the portions of food and the absorption of nutrients, you might risk malnourishment. To avoid any complication after surgery and to achieve your optimal weight, a structured meal plan and a healthy lifestyle are absolutely necessary. Once you take the decision to go through a bariatric surgery, you should seek the advice of a specialized nutritionist or dietitian. Contact us for more details. Nutrition helps with other surgeries!

Whether it is a simple surgery or a complicated one, surgeries put stress on the body which increases the risk of infection, slow wound healing and complicates recovery.

Liposuction is commonly confused as a weight loss tool, a quick fix for your excess weight. However, liposuction is merely a cosmetic tool for reshaping certain parts of the body by removing fats. It can never be used in treating obesity-related problems or decreasing significant amounts of weight. It can be used however to get rid of excess fats that are diet or exercise resistant in different areas of the body to achieve a slim physique only if backed up with healthy diet and physical activity. You can always maintain your new body shape and prevent the accumulation of excess fats in those areas again if you changed your lifestyle and eating habits. Like any surgery, liposuction has specific nutritional requirements to help wounds heal fast and speed up recovery. At the same time, you will need to control your dietary intake to preserve your new silhouette. If you decided to go through liposuction, it is better if you consult a professional dietitian.
