There are several reasons that a person may want to lose significant weight fast. In these instances, we utilize the Jumpstart Plan at Forum Health Medical Weight Loss and put our patients on a temporary, medically supervised liquid diet. One of the most common reasons that people want to lose weight before surgery is to improve both their potential outcome and life after the procedure.
This method is highly effective for people who want to see if they can achieve results without surgery, or for those who want to lose as much weight as possible prior to surgery.
Reasons to Lose Weight Before Surgery
There are plenty of reasons that one might want to lose weight prior to surgery. For one, being at a higher weight increases the risk of potential complications for your procedure. Having an excess amount of fat makes it more difficult for blood and oxygen to reach the surgical area, and it can also increase your risk of infection from surgery.
Additionally, a higher weight can cause increased blood pressure, which can cause problems with administering anesthesia and increase your risk for heart attacks and other cardiovascular issues.
Most of these complications stem from being overweight or obese, so not everyone will need to utilize the Jumpstart Plan prior to surgery. However, this method can prove highly effective for those struggling with their weight but need surgery to fix additional health problems.
The Jumpstart Plan can put you at a decreased risk of complications during surgery, and it can even help you take a solid first step towards continued results following your procedure.
