Following your weight loss surgery, you have the opportunity to undertake a reconditioning program which will provide important information regarding diet, exercise and behaviour change. By participating in this program, you will improve your weight loss results and receive strategies and tools to assist you to live a healthier life.
The reconditioning program has been developed with the primary aim of providing you with the best possible chance of successfully losing weight and maintaining your weight loss following metabolic/gastric surgery. The multidisciplinary team will guide you through individualised exercise sessions as well as dietary and psychology consultations. The program is once weekly for six weeks and starts approx. 4 weeks post operatively.
You will see an exercise physiologist who will develop and take you through structured exercise sessions each week which progress at your rate of improvement. You will also have individual dietician and psychology sessions to provide you with education on healthy eating both post-surgery and long term, in addition to creating positive behaviours and habits regarding food.
This is a unique opportunity for our SCMWLC patients, who have their surgery at Buderim Private Hospital.
