What to Expect

What to expect after weight loss surgery at Chilton Medical CenterAtlantic Weight & Wellness Center at Chilton Medical Center combines leading bariatric specialists with a nurturing, compassionate environment in which to prepare for your weight loss surgery, recovering and healing.

All patients considering surgery are carefully educated and screened prior to scheduling a procedure. The entire process - from your first inquiry to the day of surgery - takes approximately two months.

We encourage interested candidates to learn more about this treatment option by attending a weight loss surgery seminar at Chilton Medical Center and scheduling a personal consultation with one of our bariatric surgeons. Those initial steps are followed by extensive nutritional and psychological evaluations as well as other medical tests that may be necessary. Once completed, the surgery will be pre-authorized with your insurance company and scheduled.

Most bypass patients spend two or three days at Chilton after surgery, while banding patients generally are cared for in Same Day Surgery. In either case, you'll receive care from nurses and clinicians who are trained to accommodate your special needs. Your recovery will include a post operative bariatric diet that is specific to the type of surgery performed. You'll begin to lose excess weight while enjoying newfound energy and a healthier lifestyle.
