FAQs

Vitamins are not required for every patient – it depends on their blood results.

Your surgeon and dietician may prescribe the exact vitamins your body will need. These vitamins may include iron, vitamin B12, and calcium.

Reducing loose skin after weight loss surgery can be done through lifestyle changes or surgery.

Eating a protein-rich diet can help you gain lean muscle which will help reduce the appearance of sagging because your body is more toned. Lifting weights also helps you build up muscle. If these measures don’t work, surgery to remove the excess skin can also be done.

Follow the diet and meal plan you have been given by the weight loss team.

Use portion control and tracking your meals to avoid overeating. Exercise regularly, drink plenty of water, avoid stress, and get plenty of sleep. All of these actions will help you maintain a healthy lifestyle, which will be instrumental in having a good outcome.

Each form of weight loss surgery has its own set of benefits and risks. Surgery that is performed laparoscopically, however, has a number of advantages over traditional open surgery. Some of these benefits include less post-operative pain, smaller scars, faster discharge from the hospital, and an easier return to normal activities. If you are considering a weight loss procedure, we recommend that you come in for a consultation with Dr Dolan so that you can discuss any concerns you might have. Dr Dolan will also be able to provide you with all the information you need and help determine which weight loss surgery suits you best.

Obesity is one of the biggest contributing factors for the development of sleep apnoea, and because weight loss surgery effectively treats obesity, it can also be helpful in preventing and managing sleep apnoea. It is important to note, however, that sleep apnoea can also affect individuals who are not overweight, so weight loss surgery will not necessarily resolve the issue. If you suffer from sleep apnoea, you may still need specific treatment for the condition even after you have reached a healthy body weight.
