What is the down time after surgery?

The down time after surgery will depend largely on the surgical option you choose. However, most procedures are laparoscopic and thus minimally invasive. Specifically:

  • Lap Band Surgery – Normally an outpatient procedure (home the same day)
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy – 23 hour admission
  • Gastric Bypass Surgery – Normally 2 to 3 night stay in the hospital

Expect full recovery after three to five weeks.
