Whilst Weight Loss Surgery is an effective treatment for morbid obesity,
the kilos do not come off by themselves. The surgery is an aid to support you in
achieving lasting results by limiting food intake, reducing appetite and slowing digestion.

to for the rest of your life. Exercise is also an important component
of a changed lifestyle.
