Weight Loss Surgery and Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Morbid Obesity has become an Epidemic in Australia making this country having the highest incidences in the World.

While conservative measures like Diet, Exercise and Medications may help, a fairly large number of people who are morbidly obese, would either not respond or relapse after a brief response.

Weight Loss surgery offers a means for a lasting weight loss in such individuals, provided that the process is carefully planned and executed. Amongst the various options, the popular ones are Sleeve Gastrectomy and Gastric Bypass (Roux n Y and Omega Loop). They are done through Laparoscopic (keyhole) technique.

Patients with an appropriate GP referral, will be offered a discussion about their suitability for weight loss surgery, the choice of operation and costs involved. I perform these operations at the Shepparton Private Hospital.  Regular follow ups after the surgery,  over the years, are also offered.

I have an in-house dietician who is engaged for a discussion about the dietary protocols before and after all weight loss procedures.

Significant weight loss after surgery, often results in loose skin in various parts of the body.  I offer Abdominoplasty (Tummy tuck) in patients who are interested in this procedure.
