What to Expect During a Consultation for Weight Loss Surgery

Apr 13, 2023

Weight loss surgery is a major decision and it’s important to understand what you can expect during a consultation. Whether you’re considering gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, or another procedure, having a clear idea of the process, and getting to know your surgeon and treatment team, can help you feel more comfortable and confident in your choice.

At the Nicholson Clinic, we want our patients to be as informed as possible when they come in for their consultation. Here is an overview of what you can expect when you come in for your appointment:

First, we will review your medical history and discuss any current health issues that may affect the outcome of your weight loss surgery. During this time, we will also assess your overall health and lifestyle habits to determine whether weight loss surgery is right for you. We may recommend additional tests or procedures if necessary.

Next, we will discuss the different types of weight loss surgeries available and help you decide which one is best suited for your individual needs. We will explain the benefits and risks associated with each option so that you can make an informed decision about which procedure is right for you.

During the consultation, we will also discuss any dietary changes or lifestyle modifications that may be necessary after surgery. We understand that making these changes can be difficult, but they are essential for long-term success with weight loss surgery. We will provide support throughout the entire process to ensure that our patients have all the resources they need to reach their goals.

Finally, we will answer any questions or concerns that you may have about weight loss surgery before scheduling a date for your procedure. Our team is here to provide support every step of the way so don’t hesitate to ask us anything!
