What is bariatric surgery?


There are a number of options when it comes to bariatric surgery dependant on your weight loss goals and health concerns. Each of these procedures have their own unique requirements due to either surgical reconstruction of your stomach or redirecting your food into a smaller pouch further down your small intestine. Whatever procedure you decide on, research confirms that your outcomes are significantly improved under the support and advice of a bariatric dietitian. Our team of specialist dietitians know exactly what you can expect before surgery, immediately after and long-term to ensure you sustain the weight loss and maintain optimal nutritional health for the remainder of your life. Here at Sunshine Coast Dietetics, we guide you along this journey to health, providing all the necessary tools for you to succeed from bariatric meal replacements, bariatric nutrition supplements and texture modified food plans and recipes, so you feel supported and at ease throughout the entire process.


Are there any potential side effects of bariatric surgery?


Like any surgical procedure, there is the possibility that you will experience bariatric surgery side effects during recovery. These can include:

  • Dehydration
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Gallstones
  • Kidney stones
  • Hair loss
  • Reflux
  • Dumping syndrome

Most of these problems occur due to a lack of nutritional support but also through chance. Whilst these may still occur, with appropriate dietary advice, individualised nutrition plans, support and guidance our  experienced bariatric dietitians will help to minimise all risks and potential side effects kept along the way.
