While weight loss surgery can offer patients a new lease on life by improving health and mobility, it’s important to understand the risks, however remote.
The proper approach to bariatric surgery requires discussion and careful consideration of the following:
- These procedures are life-saving, and in no way are considered cosmetic.
- A decision to proceed with surgical treatment requires a thorough assessment of the risks and benefits specific to each patient.
- Weight loss surgery is only a tool. For optimal weight loss, long-term changes in behavior, proper diet selection, exercise, and proper medical follow-up are critical for successful results.
- Surgical treatment success must begin with realistic goals. Patients at Roller Weight Loss will be supplied with all the proper education and information to help facilitate healthy weight loss.
