What to Expect
What to Expect From Your Weight Loss Surgery in Las Vegas
What Brings You To Blossom
The majority of people who consider weight loss (bariatric) surgery do so after years of unsuccessful dieting attempts, including participation in diet programs, taking weight loss medications and exercising. After years of losing weight and gaining it back, it is not unusual to blame yourself. Most of our gastric sleeve and gastric bypass clients have been on many diets and end up feeling like a failure. At Blossom Bariatrics we understand this. We offer a safe supportive environment, successful life changing weight loss, compassion care from a dedicated Center of Excellence surgeon and team.
Morbid obesity is a disease requiring lifelong treatment. Bariatric surgery is a treatment option that alters the client’s anatomy and physiology, while allowing for significant weight loss and the reversal or improvement of co-morbid conditions.*
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Each of the procedures available at Blossom Bariatrics are capable of delivering phenomenal results. Generally speaking, our clients will lose approximately 50 percent of their excess body weight. In all cases, however, success is highly dependent on a client’s adherence to the postoperative instructions and lifestyle changes suggested by Dr. Tom and the staff. *
Not A Cure-All
Bariatric surgery is not a cure-all and never should be regarded as such. However, as an effective tool, it helps clients attain a feeling of satiety, or fullness, from the formation of a small stomach pouch. For many weight loss clients, dieting was frustrating because the feeling of satiety was missing. So, satiety can be the unique result of the surgery, helping clients to feel full and satisfied with less food.
The Right Tool For Weight Loss
Successful bariatric surgery clients use the surgery as a powerful tool to help control their hunger. Along with exercise and a healthy diet, bariatric surgery can help you feel full and attain your goals of health and wellness.
Many of our gastric sleeve and gastric bypass clients report that during the first 12 to 18 months following surgery, they feel highly motivated and energized. During this time, they are making substantial lifestyle changes such as eating new foods and smaller portions, taking vitamins daily, and exercising regularly. Many of these changes will be discussed before surgery and should come as no surprise following surgery.*
