Be informed before making a surgery decision

Your best source of information is an experienced bariatric surgeon. The bariatric surgeons at Reston Hospital know how to handle your special needs before, during and after weight loss surgery. Although bariatric surgery has shown to be an effective tool in weight loss, remember that the surgery is only a tool. A successful outcome depends on your commitment to a long-term lifestyle change.

It's important to discuss your postsurgery life with your doctor, including:

  • Diet and exercise
  • Going back to work
  • Birth control and pregnancy
  • Long-term follow-up
  • Support groups
