Before the Surgery

The first step is preparing your body. You will have tests. These tests ensure you’re ready for surgery. You will meet with a nutritionist. You will also meet with a psychologist. The goal is to make sure you’re fully prepared—physically and mentally.

The Surgery

The second step is the surgery itself. It is a safe procedure. The aim is to make your stomach smaller. This helps you eat less. You get full quickly. Remember, it’s not a miracle cure. It’s a tool to help you lose weight.

After the Surgery

The third step is recovery. There will be changes in your body. You might feel discomfort. This is normal. You will have a new eating plan. You will also start a physical activity program. These changes will help you lose weight and keep it off.

Long Term

The last step is your new life. It’s not just about losing weight. It’s about keeping it off. This means ongoing changes in your lifestyle. It includes eating healthy and staying active. You will also have regular check-ups. The goal is to make sure you’re healthy and happy.
