What if weight loss surgery doesn't work?

Weight loss surgery is always a success. Whichever procedure is the most suitable, it’s impossible for your stomach to hold as much food as you used to and weight loss is a natural result of this.

The overarching success of the surgery comes from how well you adapt to your new lifestyle which is why the Peak Program focusses heavily on the disciplines of nutrition, psychology and exercise.

Where will my appointment be?

Dr Silverman consults and operates at The John Flynn Private Hospital and The Gold Coast Private Hospital on the Gold Coast and also at St. Vincent's Hospital in Lismore.

Unfortunately, weight loss surgery isn't yet available in the public system, but hopefully, it will be in the near future.

How will my life change?

After weight loss surgery, your life will change considerably. You'll need to adapt to new ways of eating, exercise, and understand the role food plays in your life.

While this may take some getting used to, it's important to note that your future will be filled with hope and promise. Your energy levels will increase, your health will improve, and losing a significant amount of weight is likely to improve your confidence.

What other options do I have for weight loss surgery?

Bariatric surgery is a major life decision, and if the gastric band or gastric sleeve isn't the most suitable surgical procedure, Dr Silverman offers a variety of surgical options that provide optimal results.

Sleeve gastrectomy: This option is a permanent removal of the majority of the stomach. While it's a highly effective method of achieving significant weight loss in a short period, it's an invasive procedure and the decision to go ahead shouldn't be taken lightly.
