Bariatrics Q & A

What is bariatrics?

Bariatrics includes several procedures and other treatments to reduce excess body weight and help you reach an ideal body weight. Bariatrics offers many benefits for your physical and mental health when other weight-loss solutions haven’t worked. 

Mission Surgical Clinic offers bariatrics surgery (weight loss surgery) to make it easier for you to eat fewer calories.

What are the benefits of bariatrics?

Some benefits of choosing bariatrics at Mission Surgical Clinic include:

  • Faster and easier weight loss
  • Long-lasting results
  • Custom meal and exercise plans
  • Better chronic disease management
  • More energy
  • Lower risk of diseases and complications
  • Improved quality of life

Bariatrics services increase your chance of weight loss and long-term healthy weight management.

Is bariatric surgery right for me?

If you’re at risk of weight-related complications, bariatrics services may be the solution for you. The Mission Surgical Clinic team can discuss your options after assessing your weight and body mass index (BMI), checking your vital signs, and completing a physical exam. They often order blood tests or other diagnostic tests as well. 

What happens during my treatment?

Your personalized bariatrics treatment may include surgical procedures, custom meal planning, exercise programs, weight-loss medications, dietary supplements, and medical supervision to ensure effective results.

When getting ready for bariatric surgery at Mission Surgical Clinic, follow your provider's instructions. Stop taking certain medications if they ask you to, and avoid foods and drinks the morning of your scheduled surgery. Arrange for someone to drive you home afterward. 

Bariatric surgery works by altering part of your digestive tract to help you feel full from fewer calories. That makes weight loss easier. 

Your Mission Surgical Clinic provider monitors you during your weight loss journey to ensure safe, effective, and long-lasting results. 

How much weight can I lose?

With the help of bariatrics services at the Mission Surgical Clinic, you might lose up to five pounds per week, depending on your personalized needs and weight loss goals. Many people lose the largest portion of weight during the first few weeks of the weight loss program.
