Whenever a patient comes into my clinic and tells me about their life struggles. After a few minutes discussing their weight loss options, they realise that they can change their lives for the better with the support from Perth Weight Loss and Surgery.
Every time a patient walks in, they know that they will have support from the beginning to the end of their treatment. They know that I am genuinely interested in their success, and in the possibility of them changing their world. Our support program gives our clients peace of mind knowing that they will have support from the beginning to the end of their treatment.
Weight loss surgery isn’t just about losing weight, it’s about changing your world. From your initial weight loss surgery consultation to post-operation care, we will ensure you receive all the information and support you need to make you feel confident about the whole process. Our experts will walk you through different weight loss surgery options and ensure you fully understand the benefits and risks associated with each one of them and together we will decide which one is the best procedure for you.
The estimated cost of weight reduction surgery in Perth is dependent on a variety of factors. On average, the total cost of bariatric surgery with Perth Weight Loss & Surgery is around $20,000 to $25,000 without private health insurance. We can help you access your superannuation as a financing option if you choose to.
Our Dietitians will provide you with a personalised nutrition and maintenance plan to maximise the benefits of the procedure and to reduce the possibility of developing other health issues in the future. Generally, you will need to stick to a clear liquid diet for the first two weeks, then you will be able to slowly introduce soft foods (weeks two to four) and finally to start having a small amount of solid food (four weeks to six weeks). According to your individual circumstances, you may also be required to follow a pre-operation diet to get your body ready for surgery. Check out our blog post to learn more about food guidelines after bariatric surgery.
Your first follow-up appointment will take place around one week post-op and then 2 more time in the first year with your surgeon. We will continue providing you guidance on nutrition and exercise to ensure you maintain a healthy lifestyle without putting weight back on. Over time your new eating habits will become second nature and overeating will become a thing of the past.
We want to make the whole process for you as easy as it can get. You will have access to our team of experts at our clinic and consulting locations.
