If you’ve made the decision to have bariatric surgery, the next decision you have to make is timing. With the holidays approaching, many people wonder if it is better to get their weight loss surgery on the schedule as soon as possible or wait until the new year. There are pros and cons to each approach, so most of the decision comes down to your preferences.
Weight loss surgery curbs your appetite, which would make it easier to deal with the temptations of holiday foods and avoid the weight gain that often accompanies the holiday season. However, having surgery before the holidays also means that you will be recovering during this busy time of year, when you may rather be spending time with family and friends.
Let Bariatric Care Centers help you decide if bariatric surgery is right for you and pick the best time for your procedure. Talk to a team member about weight loss surgery options in Houston by calling (713) 339-1353.
