Severe obesity is a life threatening condition whereby a person is 100 pounds overweight or has significant complicating medical conditions as a result of his or her weight.
Participating in a pre-surgical program has many benefits:
- It reduces the risk of complications occuring during surgery by reducing pre-surgical fat deposits.
- Patients who participate in this comprehensive full meal replacement program have the opportunity to develop many of the skills that they need to adapt to the lifestyle changes required after bariatric surgery.
- Research has shown that following a full meal replacement diet for just two weeks before bariatric surgery reduces the size of the liver and makes it less fragile.
This program is best suited for those preparing for bariatric surgery or attempting to qualify.
