I was welcomed with open arms at ALO Bariatrics and I feel truly blessed. I can’t wait to get on my journey to feeling happy and healthy again

Three (3) years ago I decided to make a change in my life.. It wasn’t just a physical transformation. The transformation was more than that. I’m more confident in my own skin now. The insecurities I used to have, that used to prevent me from being the person I really was, all along are now gone. I have definitely bloomed!! folks will say “You’ve changed!” Well, don’t let that bother you. In fact, embrace those comments because you know that it’s really just the real you, showing up now, without those pesky insecurities. I sure have changed! I’m ME now and enjoying life to the fullest!!

Weight Loss Surgery Before-and-After FAQs

Depending on the type of bariatric surgery you have, you can expect to lose up to 70% of your excess weight. This amount of weight loss is commonly seen in patients who undergo gastric bypass or duodenal switch surgery.

One of the key elements to your success will be how well you adhere to your surgeons and dieticians’ instructions after surgery. Eating a balanced, healthy diet and engaging in routine exercise are critical to maximizing the benefit of your bariatric surgery.

If you suffer from weight-related health conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea, you can expect these conditions to improve over time with weight loss. In one study, up to 30% of diabetic patients who underwent bariatric surgery had their blood sugar under control in two months. They were considered in remission from diabetes.

Weight loss will also lead to an overall reduction in your risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes.

There will be a change in the shape and structure of your body when you lose a lot of weight. This may result in loose or excess skin and a reduction in muscle mass.

Typically, areas like the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms can accumulate excess skin from weight loss. For more severe cases, body-contouring surgery or other medical interventions may be needed to address loose skin. Some patients won’t need a medical procedure for their excess skin, and over time, the skin will reshape to fit their new physique.

Seeing the results on the scale and in the mirror will positively reinforce the decision you’ve made. Your self-esteem will improve, you’ll have more restful sleep and higher energy levels, recover more quickly from illness, and have an overall healthier version of yourself.

If you have questions about a specific type of bariatric surgery and how much weight you can lose, schedule a consultation with an accomplished bariatric surgeon today.
