Over the years, the rise in the obesity epidemic has led to an increasing demand for bariatric surgery. Considering the rapidly growing number of bariatric surgery procedures performed, intensive development of postoperative care and surveillance programs should be expected. However, the effectiveness of follow-up after bariatric surgery appears to be surprisingly low. The purpose of this review is to draw attention to the quality of follow-up programs and to encourage health care providers to make efforts to ensure adequate post-operative data collection. Awareness should be raised about inadequate data collection to strengthen the credibility and authenticity of treatment results, thus providing a clearer picture of treatment efficacy.
