Brazilian Butt Lift: Procedure, Recovery & Results
Doctors advise patients who have had bariatric surgery to take bariatric supplements to ensure adequate nutrition after the operation.
These supplements can include the following:
- Complete multivitamins
- Vitamin B12
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin C
When you consume less food, these vitamins help you fulfill your nutritional needs.
Your bariatric surgeon and a dietitian at Natural Clinic will create an individualized dietary plan that meets your specific nutritional requirements. Depending on the method applied to you during the surgery, you will be given special advice.
Vitamins You’ll Need After Bariatric Surgery
You should expect to eat less food after your bariatric operation, regardless of the procedure you have. Because the surgery makes it hard to fulfill your daily dietary requirements. Also, it can put you at risk for nutritional deficiencies.
Complete bariatric multivitamins are essentially a mix of vitamins and minerals that help you fill in the nutrient holes in your diet.
Calcium is essential for the proper functioning of bones, muscles, and nerves.
*Calcium citrate or calcium carbonate is the most common form of calcium supplementation.
- Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is often used to help with memory loss, but it also improves the immune system and increases energy levels. Since some bariatric operations make it more difficult for the stomach to release B12 properly during food digestion, taking a B12 supplement after surgery is suggested.
Following bariatric surgery, your vitamin regimen is determined by the type of operation you have, the results of your nutritional lab work, and any other particular health needs or concerns you might have.
