Choosing to have weight loss surgery is a major decision. You will need to make significant and permanent lifestyle changes in the way you eat and live. Norton Weight Management Services offers behavioral health counseling and personalized nutritional guidance to help you prepare for the journey mentally and emotionally.
The first step involves a one-on-one evaluation by a bariatric behavioral health counselor. He or she will assess your overall emotional health, as well as readiness for surgery. If any issues are identified, your counselor will create a personalized plan to address them prior to surgery. On pre-admission testing day, your counselor will share relaxation techniques to help with any presurgery anxiety.
Behavioral health counselors are available by appointment to provide individual counseling to address any emotional issues you may experience after surgery. These professionals also are available at support groups to provide educational programs and assist during all phases of the weight loss surgery process.
After weight loss surgery, you are restricted in the amount of food you can eat at one time. Making healthy food choices is essential to ensure appropriate nutrition.
One-on-one sessions with a registered dietitian will help you:
Group sessions are offered before surgery to provide tips as you make dietary and lifestyle changes. Once admitted for surgery, your dietitian will review your personalized bariatric diet and be available to provide support throughout the program.
If you’re considering life-changing weight loss surgery, be sure to join us for a free informational session. A bariatric surgeon will help explore your options, answer any questions and see if we can help you start feeling and living your best.
