The right bariatric surgery for you depends on several factors, such as BMI, weight loss history, complications due to obesity, your budget, and whether you want a reversible solution or not. Since there are several different options to choose from, you should schedule a consultation with one of our doctors so we can help you figure out which bariatric surgery is right for you.
Weight loss surgery can have a wide range of different costs, depending on the procedure, your insurance, and where you decide to get it. Our surgery costs are standard, but it depends on your procedure. If you want a quote, call us and ask us for a list of prices.
In general, no exercise should be performed for the first two weeks after the surgery. Your doctor will then give you a checkup and let you know whether or not they recommend exercise. However, most patients can start doing daily walks after about 2 weeks, and more strenuous exercise after a few months.
Weight loss surgeries work differently depending on the procedure, but most of them work by restricting the amount of food you can eat in a single sitting while also limiting the absorption of calories from the food you eat. It’s more effective than diet and exercise alone for severely obese patients.
This depends on the procedure and how much weight you’re starting at. People who undergo gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgery, two very common procedures, tend to lose about 50-60% of their excess weight on average. For example, if your starting weight is 300 pounds and your ideal weight is 150 pounds, you can expect to lose about 75-90 pounds of that weight.
Obese patients tend to have a number of comorbidities, or associated health conditions. Weight loss surgery can reduce or eliminate hypertension, send type 2 diabetes mellitus into remission, and reduce issues with sleep apnea regardless of the amount of weight lost.
In order to accurately answer this, you’ll need to consult with us over the phone and have an appointment with one of our surgeons. On the phone, we’ll be able to tell you how long it’ll take you to get an appointment. During the appointment, your surgeon will let you know when you can expect a surgery date.
Gastric sleeve surgery is an inpatient procedure that typically does not take very long. However, gastric sleeve patients stay overnight in the hospital before they’re discharged. This is to monitor the patient for potential complications.
