Nutrition after weight loss surgery

Pre-operative surgical patients

Our surgical program requires some weight loss (avg. 5-10% of your body weight), before surgery. Our dietitians will develop individualized meal plans that are patient-driven to help you reach your pre-operative weight loss goals. Our dietitians will also review your surgical weight loss meal plan and nutrition goals that you will follow after your surgery.

Post-operative surgical patients

Our post-operative surgical patients will meet with their dietitian about 2 weeks after their surgical date, at their post-operative visit. The dietitians will guide you through the advancements of our five-stage post-operative meal plan. Follow-up with nutrition is essential in promoting continued weight loss, and long-term weight maintenance make an appointment with your dietitian as soon as possible by calling 617-636-0158.
