Post-Operative Care

Get personalized care

UC San Diego's comprehensive weight-loss surgery program is dedicated to helping you achieve your best weight-loss results after bariatric surgery. We will provide long-term post-operative care and support to help you incorporate and maintain the lifestyle changes that will help you achieve your goals.

The following areas are key to helping you reach your weight-loss goals:

  • Dietary guidelines - Review and follow the post-operative dietary guidelines closely, as they are critical to your recovery and weight-loss success.
  • Vitamins and minerals - It's important to get the right nutrients after weight-loss surgery. Review general tips on vitamin and mineral supplements, and how to make sure you are getting the nutrients you need.
  • Exercise - Incorporating regular physical activity into your daily routine is as important as your nutrition plan. We recommend that you get at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day.
  • Support group - Our support group provides a safe environment for people who have had bariatric surgery (through our program) to share thoughts and concerns, ask questions, exchange advice and find support.
