Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) changes the function of your digestive system. The surgery may help you lose weight and manage medical conditions related to obesity.
There are various surgical procedures, but they all help you lose weight by limiting your food intake. Some procedures also limit the number of nutrients you can absorb.
Protein intake is essential for everyone, as it minimises the risk of protein deficiency, retains precious muscle tissue and maintains weight long-term.
A meal replacement is a protein-rich meal that contains essential vitamins and minerals. This is all about your safety and recovery. Everyone is different, and your team will recommend the safest path for your individual health status.
If you're considering WLS, you'll meet with several specialists to help you decide if WLS is an option.
