Bariatric surgery is just the beginning of your weight loss journey. Just remember that it can
take up to two years to reach your ultimate weight loss goal.
While many patients experience bariatric surgery success, every patient is different. Your
personality, mental health condition, and variety of life experiences and behaviors may
influence the outcome of your surgery and long-term weight loss success.
You need an evaluation because your insurance and insurance require that you complete one. It
helps the insurance company determine if surgery is in fact necessary and your surgeon can learn
more about the way you may respond to the procedure.
