In France, 1,000 obese persons per month undergo a bariatric operation. Obesity surgery requires coordination and monitoring of aftercare. The French public health-care insurer asked the medical associations involved in obesity management to provide guidelines for obesity surgery. The recommendations were developed by the national associations of Obesity, Nutrition and Diabetes: the Association Française d'Études et de Recherches sur l'Obésité (AFERO), member of the EASO and IASO; the Association de Langue Française pour l'Étude du Diabète et des Maladies Métaboliques (ALFEDIAM); the Société Française de Nutrition (SFN); and the Société Française de Chirurgie de l'Obésité (SOFCO). This article presents the short version of the guidelines.
