WHY YOU NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT BEFORE WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY
Before you undergoing Weight Loss Surgery in Mexico, your bariatric surgeon will tell you (in some cases depending your BMI) to lose some weight.
This is to ensure you’re as healthy as possible before undergoing the surgery. The truth is that most obese people have fatty liver, which means the liver is enlarged and heavy. Generally, the more you weigh, the bigger your liver. And that’s not good for bariatric surgery. At CER Hospital we design a quick and safe pre-op diet you can follow for two weeks before your bariatric surgery and have a quicker and easier recovery.
EXPECTED WEIGHT LOSS
Gastric Sleeve surgery (VSG) has been proven to significantly decrease the risk of weight loss surgery for patients who are undergoing a two-part treatment plan. Most patients can expect to lose 60-90 percent of their excess body weight within 24 months.
Some patients find such success with this procedure that a secondary surgery is not required. The timing of the second procedure will vary according to the degree of weight loss, typically 6-18 months after completion of the first surgery.
