CONSIDERING WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY?

A USEFUL GUIDE

Bariatric surgery can be life changing so be sure to make the most of your consultation with a bariatric specialist.

You should feel free to ask questions from any member of our Brighton Bariatric Multi-Disciplinary team, and you should receive complete and clear answers. If you don’t, please feel able to ask for clarification. The more you know and understand, the better you will be able to make an informed and confident decision.

 

You may want to consider the following questions:

- Are the benefits of surgery worth the potential risks for me?

- What are the complication and mortality rates for each procedures?

- What is the average weight loss I should expect?

- Do you have patients who are willing to share their experiences, both positive and negative?

- Does you offer support before and after surgery?

- How will I deal with the rapid weight loss that follows surgery?

- After surgery, how will I work through the specific issues associated with dietary and exercise changes?

- What effect will my new, healthier lifestyle have on my family and me?

 

What can I do to prepare for surgery?

Bariatric surgery is like other major abdominal surgery. You can best prepare by knowing the benefits and risks of surgery, and by closely following your Brighton Bariatric team's instructions.

 

- Understand the surgical process and what to expect afterwards.

- Keep in mind that you’ll never be able to eat the way you did before, and that you’ll have to watch what and how you eat for the rest of your life.

- Talk to people who have had bariatric surgery.

- Stop or cut down smoking to decrease the risk of post-operative complications

- Practice the post-op diet, including the transition from an all-liquid diet, to pureed food, to a normal diet of smaller portions.
