OUR AFTERCARE

It's Possible With Tonic

AFTERCARE PACKAGE

At Tonic, we understand that we cannot provide you with just a tool for weight loss and expect you to know what to do with it. Your tool, whether it be a Gastric Balloon, Band, Sleeve or Bypass is just a small part of your weight loss success. This is why with Tonic you have a comprehensive Aftercare package as standard to drive you to achieve the results you deserve.

SPECIALIST BARIATRIC DIETICIAN SUPPORT

Our specialist bariatric dietitians will offer practical dietary advice to help you to: Post operatively they will guide you through the eating stages and check that you are taking your supplements.

• Learn to eat regular meals and healthy snacks
• Measure and control food portions
• Use the skill of self-monitoring by completing a food diary to help identify unhelpful eating habits
• Using mobile apps to measure the calorie content of foods
• Offer individually tailored dietary advice e.g. gluten-free, low lactose diet
• Help you develop skills for both weight loss and keeping weight off in the long-term

Post operatively they will guide you through the eating stages and check that you are taking your supplements.

SPECIALIST BARIATRIC PSYCHOTHERAPIST SUPPORT

Our psychotherapists look after your mental well-being as you embark on this journey. They will help you to identify your strengths and weaknesses, look at your eating patterns past and present and prepare you for the changes you will need to make. You may have questions yourself that the psychotherapists can help you with; they may help you to relax if you have any anxiety. Our psychotherapist can teach you different techniques to help you cope with different kinds of situations.

SPECIALIST BARIATRIC LIFESTYLE + FITNESS TRAINER

Our lifestyle & fitness coaches will get you moving. They will integrate fitness into you own life and teach you different techniques about how to continue with life in a positive, healthy manner post weight loss surgery.

Specialist Bariatric Nurse

The specialist nurse will support and advice you before your surgery. She will explain the pre liver diet and answer any questions that you may have. She will discuss with you what to expect during your hospital stay, the surgery, the healing process and medications.
After your surgery, the specialist nurse will ring you to check on your progress. She will advise and support throughout the initial few days after your surgery. She will encourage, reassure, answer questions, and help you return to your normal activities.

CONTACT AND PHONE CALLS

You never get left without support. Your monthly call from Tonic continues for 2 years, as does the weekly supportive newsletter. What’s more, you are able to call Tonic for support and guidance for 5 years after your surgery and your clinical appointments with the surgeon also continue for 5 years. We hear many non-Tonic patients who feel left out in the cold after surgery with little or no help, nowhere to turn to for support. Here at Tonic we go above and beyond to make sure you are treated as one of the family and supported along your journey.
