Getting started on your weight loss journey.
Your surgeon will review your medical history and schedule evaluations required by your insurance company for approval. These evaluations will vary from patient to patient.
The preparation stage is designed to evaluate and optimize not only your medical health but your mental health as well. Mental preparation includes understanding the process, knowing what to expect afterward and being ready to put in the hard work that comes after your surgery to begin a lifetime of weight loss and management.
Prior to surgery your doctor will go over last minute details, such as what you shouldn’t eat or drink before surgery, any medications you are taking and other necessary preparations.
