Tired of being overweight and unhealthy?
Procedure Performed in Corpus Christi
Patient Information: Pre-op diet
Begin a liquid diet 14 days prior to surgery. A protein
shake from Bariatric Advantage is recommended.
Your liquid diet may include anything that can be put
in a blender and has the consistency of thick paint.
DECREASE THESE IN YOUR DIET:
- All fats including butter, fatty meats, fried foods, whole milk products
- High sugar foods
- Carbonated drinks (no carbonated drinks after surgery)
- High carbohydrate foods such as bread
IMPORTANT The pre-operative diet is IMPORTANT for two reasons:
To decrease the amount of fat in and around your liver
To reduce the size of your liver before your operation.
If you do not follow your pre-op diet properly, your liver may be too large, and your surgery may have to be postponed. If you have problems with your pre-op diet, or should you have any questions please contact our office.
Bariatric Advantage products are designed for the special health needs of bariatric surgery patients.
