Weight Loss Surgery Q&A

What is weight loss surgery?

During weight loss surgery, your surgeon alters your digestive tract in some way to make it easier to lose weight. The procedure could make your stomach smaller or help your digestive tract absorb fewer calories.

What are the benefits of weight loss surgery?

Some of the many benefits you can experience with weight loss surgery at Mission Surgical Clinic include:

  • Significant weight loss
  • Easier weight loss
  • Higher weight loss success rates
  • Lower chronic disease risks
  • More energy after healing
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Medical supervision of your weight loss efforts

After weight loss surgery and reaching your goal weight, you’ll look better, feel better, and gain the confidence you’ve always wanted.

Is weight loss surgery right for me?

If you’re obese and at risk of health problems because of your weight, weight loss surgery could be the solution you’ve been searching for.

Your Mission Surgical Clinic specialist discusses the pros and cons of weight loss surgery with you and lets you know what to expect during the procedure. They might ask you to first lose some weight on your own by making healthy lifestyle changes.

Your provider weighs you, checks your vital signs, discusses your medical history and lifestyle, and completes a physical exam. They need to make sure you’re healthy enough for weight loss surgery, so they’re likely to order blood, urine, heart function, and other diagnostic tests.

What should I expect during the procedure?

Your surgeon performs weight loss surgery while you’re under a general anesthetic, so you’re asleep and feel no pain. They ask you to avoid foods and drinks the morning of your scheduled surgery, and you may have to stop taking some medicines.

During the surgery, your surgeon changes your digestive system in a way that makes eating fewer calories easier or reduces the number of calories you absorb. The length of your surgery will depend on the weight loss procedure you undergo. Afterward, your surgeon takes you to a recovery area to rest while they monitor your vital signs.

What happens after weight loss surgery?

Follow your doctor’s instructions after weight loss surgery. Get plenty of rest, follow a special diet, and take dietary supplements or medications as directed by your surgeon. Attend all your follow-up appointments and nutrition counseling sessions to ensure that you get the nutrients needed to stay healthy during your weight loss journey.
