Expert surgical treatment is vital but not enough; Beverly Hills Physicians provides life-changing counseling and support before and after weight loss surgery
It can’t be overstated; bariatric surgery is a delicate procedure that requires the expert hands of board-certified weight loss doctors. This is especially the case with modern innovations like the sleeve gastrectomy or lap band procedures, which can now be effectively performed completely via laparoscope. While the experienced and board-certified surgeons at Beverly Hills Physicians are more than capable of performing a gastric sleeve or lap band procedure, they also know that surgery is not the only determining factor for effective and life-saving weight loss.
Firstly, undergoing a bariatric procedure requires the correct mindset before the surgery. From the moment a prospective patient begins their free consultation with Beverly Hills Physicians, a BHP representative will openly and candidly discuss the patient’s expectations and details of the procedures. Many patients might not realize that qualifying for a bariatric surgery requires a strict diet before treatment and a commitment to healthy life choices afterwards in order to be fully successful. Furthermore, Beverly Hills Physicians believes in being as responsible as possible by enlisting a licensed therapist before providing the surgery to guarantee that the patient is in proper mental health and ready to get the greatest benefit from a weight loss procedure.
Beverly Hills Physicians also recognizes that aftercare is important to the success of bariatric surgery. This involves making sure the recovery period goes as smoothly as possible and also helping each patient adjust to the recent changes in their body. Beverly Hills Physicians goes above and beyond in this regard by enlisting a talented support staff who is on hand to answer any questions a patient may have when they have them. A talented nutritionist is also on hand to help guide patients towards making the best dietary choices possible. Finally, BHP offers competitive pricing on its lap band adjustments, a valuable service for those looking to maximize the benefits of their restrictive banding procedure.
Another pivotal difference that the BHP medical network can provide is plastic surgery following dramatic weight loss. Because Beverly Hills Physicians works with a talented group of plastic and reconstructive surgeons in addition to its bariatric team, it can help facilitate the process of getting patients’ post-bariatric bodies to where they want them to be. After all, losing a lot of weight can sometimes lead to pools of loose skin, deflated looking breasts, and a sunken look in the face, all of which can be resolved through surgical means. While not every patient may want or need plastic surgery following weight loss, Beverly Hills Physicians helps to make it easy for those who do by setting up prospective patients with leaders in the field and by offering the same support system as with their bariatric patients.
Again, this is not to belittle the importance of surgical precision to the process of weight loss. In both lap band and sleeve gastrectomy, the bariatric procedure has to be performed effectively and safely. Complications need to be avoided at all costs to prevent future surgeries. More importantly, the surgery needs to have its intended effect: helping the patient make better dietary choices through a restricted diet. Beverly Hills Physicians has also seen weight loss surgeries eliminate sensations of hunger that can make losing weight so difficult.
