  7. Preparation for Weight Loss Surgery

Once you’ve decided you’re ready to have weight loss surgery, there are some steps you’ll need to go through. We have helped thousands of patients through this process, and will ensure you feel supported and educated on your entire journey. Every team member at our Los Angeles and Orange Country area offices knows how to guide patients through the pre-surgery process.

The preparation you need to do will depend on factors like your insurance company, what procedure you’ve chosen, and your current health conditions. These steps are put in place to make sure you can be as successful as possible on the day of your procedure, as well as throughout the weight loss journey.

While you may not be required to go through all these steps, some common pre-surgery steps that patients take include:

  • Nutritional consultation
  • Psychological evaluation
  • Sleep study
  • Cardiology testing
  • Review of vitamin and supplement requirements
  • Commitment to stop smoking (if applicable)
  • Pre-surgery diet to shrink liver

Although it may seem like a lot of information, our team is here to make sure you follow each step in the process correctly. We will work together to make the preparation process for bariatric surgery as efficient and supportive as possible.
