Weight loss surgery is a significant operation and a physical, emotional, and life-changing journey that requires a patient's serious commitment. The vast majority of patients have battled with conventional diets, exercise plans and methods for a long time without sustained success. While weight-loss surgery is highly effective, it is not a quick fix and still requires commitment to making significant lifestyle changes. Weight loss surgery can help give you the motivation and kick-start you need to finally achieve your weight loss goals.
The first task of a weight loss surgeon is to establish what you’re hoping to achieve from weight loss surgery, assess your situation, and help you determine the best course of action for you, including which procedure may be best.
Ultimately, weight loss surgery is about giving you back control of your weight so that you can live a healthy lifestyle in the future.
Between your initial consultation and admission for your procedure, you will be able to speak to the specialist nurse and the dietician if you have any queries or concerns before you are admitted.
Your initial consultation usually lasts around one hour, in which time your consultant will learn about and assess your medical background and discuss your reasons for wanting to undergo weight loss surgery and your concerns.
The consultant will go through all the available treatment options and start to develop the concept of a healthy eating plan as this is a crucial component of the weight loss journey even with surgery. You will receive written information about all the different choices of operations.
You will leave the first consultation with three further appointments booked. Two appointments will be with a senior dietician, and the third will be back with your consultant and the specialist nurse. This initial process will be spread over a six week period. The goal of these appointments is for you to learn everything you need to ahead of a procedure, to give you the best chance of success after surgery.
Once a treatment has been agreed upon, the procedure will then be arranged for a suitable time within the next few weeks. Thanks to the vastly experienced experts at Ross Hall Hospital, you may even see some initial success resulting from these preliminary stages.
The period of time between the initial consultation and surgery is important to help you to prepare for surgery both physically (by getting fitter and losing a small amount of weight through diet changes) and mentally.
After your procedure, you will be cared for on the ward by our dedicated nursing team. Most patients will stay two nights after a sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass procedure and will usually be allowed to go home before the third. Your consultant will visit you twice per day while you are in the hospital to ensure you are happy and healthy.
You’ll be offered a 1-year package of follow-up appointments with your dietician, specialist nurse and your consultant.
The first follow-up appointments, during the 3-4 months after surgery, are used to check you are getting adequate nutrition and are in line with positive post-surgical recovery.
Moving forwards, appointments will help in the transition from liquid foods to solid foods and check you are losing weight at a healthy rate. These follow-up appointments will be arranged every four weeks or so. The emphasis becomes the persistent implementation of a healthy eating plan.
At Ross Hall Hospital, you will benefit from a comprehensive multidisciplinary team of consultants, specialist nurses and dieticians to ensure you are effectively supported well into your weight loss journey post-surgery. Weight loss surgery is just one piece of the puzzle, and the professional team of specialists will ensure you are prepared for it and will provide guidance along the way.
