The most important facts you should know about the topic of sleeve gastrectomy

The lower the weight of the patient before surgery, the higher and better are the prospects for success. A lower weight before surgery allows a shorter surgical intervention and at the same time reduces the risk of possible complications.

Studies have shown that weight reduction before surgery is directly related to the overall outcome of the surgery. Every patient should be aware of the fact that his/her entire eating habits and previous habits are part of the process. Old habits and dealing with the topic of nutrition must be examined and discussed together with the physician.

This change takes time and patience but it is essential to achieve a realistic and long-term success. Your sleeve gastrectomy is the most effective way to assist you in your weight reduction. We as the team of medicalfly are always by your side in this process also including the post-operative aftercare.
