Choosing a Weight Loss Procedure and Where to book weight loss surgery or reversal of a Gastric Band Surgery in the Brisbane area, Gold Coast and the Northern Rivers
Weight-loss surgery is one of the most effective ways for obese individuals to lose excess weight and keep it off. There are several types of weight loss surgery, and patients who wish to undergo one of these procedures must work with their surgeons to determine which method is best for them. All weight loss surgeries including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and loop duodenal switch procedure can be highly effective when carried out by an experienced team (including surgeon, dietician and other health professionals) when patients have access to aftercare and are willing to participate in the required lifestyle modifications.
Regardless of which procedure you ultimately choose the decision should be made after careful discussion with the surgeon and involved team to make sure you get the best long term outcome. Think of weight loss surgery as a tool that can help you start a new life. Your procedure will help control your hunger and make it easier to eat less.
