The Gastric Bypass and Sleeve Gastrectomy have less recommended follow up than the Lap Band. These require a one month post op visit then every 3-4 months for the first year. After the first year it is recommended you follow up annually to ensure you are having a healthy weight loss and to monitor for complications or vitamin deficiencies. You may be recommended to follow up more frequently depending on your specific health needs.
