Is weight-loss surgery the right method for me?
Our team of experts follow evidence-based European and American treatment guidelines, which recommend this way of treatment if:
- Diets and/or other weight loss methods were not effective;
- You body mass index (BMI) is greater than 40 or greater than 35 and you are suffering from other overweight associated chronic conditions (diabetes mellitus, hypertension, etc.) which could potentially be altered along with the loss of weight.
- You understand that weight-loss operation itself is just a tool towards achieving the ultimate results and other factors such as your compliance with advise regarding changing your eating habits and adopting a healthy life style are also equally important.
Which operation is the most suitable for me?
It is important to understand that operation in itself is a huge undertaking and a challenge to your body’s physiology. All the operations pose different challenges in terms of risk profile which you will be able to discuss in great detail with your surgeon during the consultation.
How much should I expect to lose weight?
Weight loss is a gradual process which will largely depend on the type of the operation and your body’s physiology and profile. In most cases, the greatest weight-loss is observed after 1.5 – 2 years after surgery and is as much as 60- 70% of the excess body weight.
