The founder of the Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery offers advice for promoting healthy, post-surgical recovery.

Plano, TX, April 18, 2015 – When surgery has to be performed for any reason, most people want to get back on their feet and back at their normal routine as soon as possible. When the procedure happens to involve weight-loss techniques, such as the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, patients can help themselves by following a few simple rules.

“The days following a surgical procedure can be especially difficult for those who are accustomed to following their old routines,” , founder and lead surgeon at the North Texas-based Nicholson Clinic, one of the top weight loss surgery centers in the country. “Weight loss surgery, however, demands that people break some of those routines to not only promote the shedding of pounds but also safe, speedy recovery.”

To promote faster, safe recovery from a bariatric procedure, Dr. Nicholson urges people undergoing weight-loss surgery to follow these simple steps in the days following their procedure:

1. Follow all post-care advice to the letter – This includes limiting physical activity until clearance is given, proper surgical site care and making sure lots of rest is had to promote healing.

2. Limit diet and food intake to recommended amounts – Dr. Nicholson says this particular step can be hard to follow, but it’s critical for promoting proper, safe healing. When patients overeat, for example, they can run a risk of post-surgical complications, such as leaking at the staple line.

3. Report any concerns to the surgeon’s office immediately – While complications with procedures like the sleeve gastrectomy are extremely rare, it’s important for patients to keep an open line of communication with their doctors’ offices. If complications or concerns arise, it’s best to call in for professional advice.

“Patients can help ensure they experience speedy, safe recovery by following their surgeon’s advice and taking it easy in the days after a procedure,” says Dr. Nicholson.

Founded by Dr. Nick Nicholson, one of the country’s leading weight loss surgeons and co-author of “Weight Loss Surgery” The Real Skinny,” the Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery offers a variety of options to help patients gain control of their weight and their lives.
