Recovery and Follow Up
Some of our bariatric patients, especially those with a weight loss balloon or Lap Band, go home the same day as their procedure. Others stay in the hospital for one to several days. Because our bariatric procedures are often done laparoscopically, the recovery time is shorter on average than it would be with an open procedure. The procedure you have along with your recovery and other medical conditions, will determine how quickly you can go home after surgery.
