If you’re thinking about getting weight-loss surgery, you’ve probably researched every possible side-effect, tip and how-to. As I prepare for my own journey with the gastric sleeve procedure, I looked toward Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa for a vital helping hand.
During gastric sleeve surgery, they remove up to 80% of the stomach. This is what helps most patients lose 60% of their extra weight over the first 12 to 18 months. Your new and improved sized stomach means you’re going to be taking in a whole lot less food, and less nutrients.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies post-opp are one of the biggest hurtles following this life-changing procedure. The side-effects of having these deficiencies can include fatigue, anemia, muscle loss and even hair loss. Adding to this struggle, your new stomach size doesn’t permit you swallowing a bunch of vitamins. Alas, this is where Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa come in to help.
With the assistance of my family doctor, I’m planning on getting bi-weekly IV Nutrient Therapy to help combat the loss of nutrients. Especially in the first few weeks post-opp, where I’ll be subjected to liquids only. Moving forward, there’s a peace of mind knowing that Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa has a registered nurse (and Doctor supervision) performing IV Nutrient Therapy.
I.V Nutrient Therapy is such an ideal treatment because the good stuff is directly put into your bloodstream, you don’t have to worry about skipping a meal to make room for your vitamins. By bypassing the digestive process, the vitamins + minerals are more fully absorbed. Terrence M. Fullum MD, MBA, told Bariatric Times Intravenous (IV) micronutrient therapy is safe, feasible, reliable, and relatively inexpensive. But is being considered more and more as a prophylactic and therapeutic option for bariatric patients.”
