Getting Ready for Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery is often an effective way to reclaim one’s physical health and emotional well-being, but it does require a significant commitment to change. As you prepare for your procedure, your surgeon may ask you to make certain lifestyle changes. You may need to lose a little weight to minimize the risks associated with the procedure and you’ll be asked to quit smoking, if applicable.

You can hear more about the pre-operative process when you watch this interview with a physician. He explains how to choose the right bariatric surgeon for you and why it’s necessary to begin changing your lifestyle before having the procedure.
