What does signing up for weight loss surgery mean?

If you are considering weight loss surgery it is important to know what you are signing up for.  Weight loss surgery is life-changing and involves making healthy lifestyle choices.  As part of the process, you will see our weight loss dietitian and psychologist, who will help you identify what changes you need to make to optimise your weight loss goals.  This is an important part of moving towards an operation as if you allow both our dietician and psychologist to help you, your weight loss will be greater and more sustained.  Depending on your individual circumstances and your initial assessments, it may be valuable to continue to see them longer term as they can provide helpful guidance for you.  After your operation, your weight will be monitored to ensure you continue to lose weight and then maintain your weight loss.
