Undergoing bariatric surgery for weight loss will help you take significant steps toward a healthier life, and shedding pounds after your procedure reduces many obesity-related health conditions. However, choosing to change your lifestyle habits and make healthy choices will ensure you experience the best results after surgery. Preparing for your weight loss surgery and planning what lifestyle changes you will make will help you maximize your weight loss results!

Scheduling Your Surgery

Your bariatric surgery journey is underway if you’ve already discussed your health history and weight loss program goals during your free consultation with one of our expert bariatric surgeons. When you choose SmartShape™ Weight Loss Centre for your procedure, you can typically have your surgery scheduled within a month of your consultation.

Setting Yourself Up for Success

It’s important to know that bariatric surgery is most effective and safe for individuals who have a BMI of 35+, or a BMI of 30+ with weight-related health problems and who have not been able to achieve significant and sustained weight loss on their own.

Whether you choose a mini gastric bypass or gastric sleeve procedure, committing to a healthy lifestyle and creating a routine that encourages healthy choices is essential. Before your bariatric surgery, here are some steps to set yourself up for long-term success.
