What is Obesity? Obesity is influenced by many complex factors that may be out of your control – not necessarily the result of poor choices or lack of will power. It’s easy to get caught in a cycle of weight loss and weight regain.

Before making a decision about bariatric surgery, the first step is to explore your options. You can research online and then book a consultation appointment with a suitable surgeon. Part of the process is learning if you qualify for surgery and what to do to get approved. It is important to consider the surgical advantages before deciding if surgery is right for you.
We understand that trying to lose weight can be frustrating. It is important to remember that through the ups and downs you are not alone. Each person’s journey to weight loss is unique, but it can be helpful to hear from other Australians and their individual experience with weight loss surgery.

Although diet and exercise are essential aspects of solving obesity, the only option is to add weight loss surgery to this for many patients. This is because, in the long term, diet and exercise alone do not mean significant sustainable weight loss and continuous health improvement.

The Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery: Fertility

Do you have polycystic o***y syndrome (PCOS)? Are you struggling with infertility?

Speak to us today to find out how weight loss surgery can relieve the symptoms of PCOS and help you to fall pregnant.

We find that most patients lose between 60-80% of their excess weight within the two years after their surgery.

This depends on a number of factors of course, such as your pre-surgery weight, the procedure you select and the ongoing lifestyle changes you implement.

16/08/2022

When you are overweight, your body gets used to being heavy, and will fight your efforts to lose weight. This is completely normal. Your body is designed to keep weight on, and to stay or return to the heaviest weight you have been. This is known as the ‘body set point’.

Having a weight loss operation can help you reset your body set point to a lower level. Contact us on (02) 4380 8404 to talk through your options.

We understand that a hospital stay isn't something anyone looks forward to, but it's all part of providing the best post-operative care and ensuring a comfortable recovery.

That being said, the stay will probably be shorter than you're expecting - most patients stay 1-2 nights in hospital, before heading back to their own bed!

Medical science is beginning to understand that if you eat healthy food and exercise regularly you don’t lose weight but instead your body is designed to stay the same weight. So if you have had a poor diet in the past and put on weight, it takes more than just fixing bad habits to lose weight. This is known as ‘body set point theory’.

What this means for you is that if your diet and lose weight, your body will then fight you and try to put the weight back on (because it wants to stay the same weight). This leads to what is commonly known as yo-yo dieting and occurs in over 99% of people. Weight loss surgery can help by both helping you lose weight and helping stop the body’s urge to regain the weight after it has been lost.
