What is Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatric surgery procedures are commonly known as a Sleeve Gastrectomy/gastric sleeve or gastric bypass. (in two forms, full bypass or mini-bypass) and are designed to surgically reduce the size of your stomach. The procedure allows you to enjoy all types of food whilst feeling satisfied with just a fraction of the portions you may eat today.  Without exercise within 6 months, you could lose 30-40kg* of your current body weight. Over 12 months you could have lost 40-50kg*. (*Disclaimer: Results may vary from person to person)

This is not a far-fetched claim or a marketing ploy, this is backed by science and literally millions of success stories worldwide.

Which gastric surgery is right for me?

This is a big decision and potential surgery patients will do their own research around which procedure is right for them, but it is, in fact, a lot more involved than just your choice. Your starting BMI and existing conditions are a factor and a Bariatric Surgeon is the right person to recommend which surgery will give you the best results over the short and long term.
