Why Weight Loss Surgery can succeed or fail By Juan Hidalgo on June 30, 2020

Weight Loss Surgery is nowadays considered a powerful tool to help obese people lose weight and improve their health. Most patients achieve successful results and their lives change in all aspects, but some other patients, after initial success, may experience a leveling-off of their weight loss or begin to even regain weight and feel frustrated.

Most of the people who are about to make this big decision of having weight loss surgery wonder why these kinds of procedures succeed for some and why they fail for others. The answer to this question can be found in the word COMMITMENT.

Weight Loss Surgery is a big step for a patient’s weight-loss journey which should be considered as a new beginning for most. That is because the patient will have long-term results for health and weight with good aftercare and moderate lifestyle changes.  It is certain that each patient has unique goals and expectations for a satisfactory outcome after their weight loss surgery and they have to talk about that with their surgeon to follow up on the proper post-op plan for them.

There are several reasons that patients may not get the results they were shooting for, and being aware of them in advance, will increase their chances of weight loss success:

  • A complex emotional relationship with food
  • Stress might not let the patient reduce their appetite
  • Eating high calorie foods
  • Uncomfortable side effects post-surgery
  • The patient goes off on their own track and breaks the postop diet
  • Among others

Even though the success or failure of the weight loss surgery is very subjective, if the patient does not take the responsibility of following the recommended specific and restricted diet, an exercise plan, and good lifestyle habits before and after the surgery, they will probably fail.

The key to success is once the patient has had the weight loss procedure they must understand that their life will be different in so many aspects. Not only will they gain confidence in themselves as they successfully lose weight and reach their goal, so new eating habits must lead their diet to keep maintaining the weight-loss journey.

Are you going to be a success or a failure after your Weight Loss Surgery?

The success of a Weight Loss Surgery depends on how well you follow the instructions of your medical team, the post-op diet, as well as your eating habits during your diet phase post-surgery until you hit your goal weight. But most importantly, on how committed you are to changing your relationship with food and basically your entire lifestyle.
