Frequently Asked Questions

This decision is typically made during the initial consultation between you and one of our bariatric surgeons. BMI, medical history, and weight-related conditions are essential factors when deciding what procedure will give you the healthiest results.
Surgery is done on patients between the ages of 18 – 65. If you’re younger than 18, please refer to an Adolescent Bariatric Surgery Program. If you are older than 65, cases are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Please keep in mind your insurance may restrict your options.
No, many patients are in poor health because of diseases caused by obesity. These diseases include diabetes, high blood pressure, heart problems, lung problems, and kidney difficulties.
Many bariatric surgeons put their patients on a special pre-operative diet, usually 10 days to 2 weeks before surgery. The reason for the pre-operative diet is to shrink the liver and reduce fat in the abdomen. This helps during the procedure and makes it safer.
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which a surgeon gains access to the abdominal cavity through 4 to 6 small incisions in the abdominal wall. An instrument called a laparoscope is used to give the surgeon an exceptionally clear view of the inside of the abdominal cavity. This surgical approach is considered “minimally invasive” because of the very small incisions used.
Sleeve gastrectomy can be performed in 1-2 hours, while the gastric bypass is generally performed in 2-3 hours.
Some people are able to return to work one to two weeks after surgery. You may have to take more time off if you have other health concerns or if your job requires heavy lifting.
Typically, you’ll attend four to six follow-ups during your first post-surgery year. Then visits are scheduled at six to twelve month intervals for an indefinite period of time.
Results vary from patient to patient, with the best results coming from those committed to lifestyle change. Keep in mind, weight loss surgery isn’t a miracle cure. It’s important to set realistic weight loss goals for yourself right from the start. You’re aiming for gradual, steady weight loss.
For best results, follow the advice of your surgeon and the nutritionist. We also encourage you to join a support group. Support groups will provide you with additional advice and motivation to fuel your long-term weight loss.
Vitamins and protein supplements will be required daily after surgery. Before your surgery, your surgeon and/or nutritionist will discuss the necessary vitamins needed. You should plan on spending at least $25 per month, and most bariatric patients pay around $50 to $70 per month for high-quality bariatric vitamins. You have undergone a procedure to get healthy, and it is important to invest in yourself to stay healthy.
Most doctors recommend that women wait at least two years after the surgery before pregnancy. Approximately two years after surgery, your body should be fairly stable (from a weight and nutrition standpoint), and you should be able to have a healthy pregnancy. Consult your surgeon as you plan for pregnancy.
