Understanding the Weight Loss Surgery Process
A Step by Step Guide to You a New You
If repeated attempts at diet and weight loss have failed to achieve your weight loss goals, bariatric surgery may be an excellent solution to regain your health. At Ready4aChange, we make understanding the weight loss surgery process simple and stress free. Our experienced care facilitators are here to assist you every step of the way.
The first steps in understanding if you may be a candidate for weight loss surgery is to calculate and understand your Body Mass Index (BMI) and review the generally accepted criteria for surgery.
There are two main types of surgical weight loss procedures. Understand the difference between restrictive and combination (malabsorptive + restrictive) procedures and how they achieve weight loss, and learn which surgeries fall into the two categories.
There are several options for weight loss surgery available today. A clear understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of each type of procedure, how each procedure is performed and how weight loss is achieved is extremely important.
