Weight Loss & Bariatric Surgery

What is Weight Loss and Bariatric Surgery? 

Bariatric surgery is all about weight loss to improve the health and well-being of the patient. It helps seriously overweight people achieve long term weight loss by changing the levels of hormones in the gut that drive feelings of hunger and fullness. 

Weight loss surgery itself, also called bariatric or metabolic surgery, can drive very significant weight loss and help improve a whole lot of conditions related to obesity, including hypertension and Type 2 diabetes. The surgeries performed are designed to suppress the appetite and interrupt the way food is absorbed, and are usually only offered to patients who have tried and failed to manage their weight via a healthy diet and exercise.

What should you expect at a Weight Loss and Bariatric Surgery clinic?

Before deciding on a surgical procedure you’ll see a team of specialists, potentially including a dietitian, psychiatrist or psychologist, an intern, and an actual  bariatric surgeon. They’ll take a detailed medical history and ask you questions about your lifestyle and symptoms. If you smoke, they’ll ask you to stop at least 6 weeks before any operation. The surgeon will explain the details behind your surgical options and the dietician will explain how you’ll need to adjust your diet afterwards, what you can and can’t eat, and how your life will change. A psychiatrist or psychologist might assess you to make sure bariatric surgery is suitable. You have to make – and stick to – dramatic lifestyle changes after the surgery, something that will  be explained to you in detail.
